RUSH: Lila in Grove Point Park, it’s nice to have you with us. Welcome.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. I’m a charter subscriber to your letter, and I received the October issue this morning and I’ve already read it through, and I really think it is your best one yet. And I loved the interview by Mr. Snerdley with you.
RUSH: Yeah, I meant to mention this thing was out. I got my official editor-in-chief copy last week. She’s talking about the 15th anniversary issue of the Limbaugh Letter, the most widely read political newsletter in the country, and it’s expanded version, since it’s the 15th anniversary. What did you like about the interview Mr. Snerdley did with me?
CALLER: Well, it was in depth. I never realized that you really hurt from the junior high and high school rejections. I mean, I could identify with that a little bit.
RUSH: Everybody can.
CALLER: And a lot of stuff in there that I had no idea about you, and I’ve listened to you since 1988, so it really was great. And I wanted to let you know that I really loved it, and this is one that I’ll read more than once.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate it. That interview with me is so in depth you’ll need to read it more than once —
RUSH: — to get all the stuff that’s chocked in there.
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate your saying that. I’m glad you called to tell me that. Thank you very much.
CALLER: And keep up the good work.
RUSH: Will do.
RUSH: Snerdley interviewed me. We have pictures of the interview taking place, by the way, at the EIB broadcast complex. I figured it was the 15th anniversary issue of the Limbaugh Letter, we’d make it about me since it’s my newsletter, and we did, and there’s an extensive interview with me in there that Mr. Snerdley conducted. I don’t know how, but he got stuff out of me I’ve never said before anywhere about growing up and some other things. And when we finished with it, I said, ‘Oh, jeez, send me this when you’ve edited it down.’ ‘We’re not editing it, we’ll add pages if we have to,’ he said. So before I had seen the finished product — I really didn’t need to see it because I knew what I had said since I’m the interview subject, and I remembered what I said, but Diana Schneider, the editrix of the newsletter, they were all going nuts, ‘Wow, I can’t believe you said all this.’
Well, blame Snerdley or praise Snerdley. Snerdley put me to sleep in this interview, relaxed me so much. We did this interview over two days and his first question was ten minutes long. Second question was five minutes long. We had to do two days because his questions were statements of adulation, idolatry, praise and so forth. I’m kidding about the last, but thanks again, Lila. I appreciate your nice comments about it. It is available now. You should be getting yours if you are a subscriber. You should be getting yours soon.
