RUSH: Let’s go Pittsburgh. This is Steve. I’m glad you called, sir. Great to have you with us.
CALLER: Rush, you say profound things even when you think you’re just flying off the handle or venting, and I wanted to thank you for being such a great teacher. When your blood pressure was rising there in that first hour and you were describing your reaction to the fires, you talked about the emotional response, the compassion you had for the homeowners and the victims. And it’s easy to compare that with your rational assessment of political items and see the difference. But you’ve taught us that the liberal response to political items, or life events, or anything is an emotional response, and they don’t have that rational assessment of the issues. When you’re talking about how they are politicizing these fires, it’s obvious there’s no barrier between their thought patterns. It’s all emotional to them. And so that just opened my eyes. I thought that was a great example, when you compared the emotional to the rational.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that. You are a great student. That is a profound observation on your part that matches the profundity of my original remark.
CALLER: Well, you’re very kind. I only get that from listening to you for a long time.
RUSH: Well, I want to add one thing to what you said. In addition to the crossover between the political and the emotional, have you noticed that all these comments these liberals are making about this fire are about them, and their political future, and their fortunes? They take these disasters — no compassion for the people suffering — it’s all an opportunity for them, it’s all about them. Never forget that.
