RUSH: This is Leslie. You’re next. It’s great to have you here, Leslie. Thank you for calling.
CALLER: Hi. Mega dittos, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I’m the one listener that knows you’re in Family Guy Presents: Blue Harvest.
RUSH: Well, thank you for remembering that.
CALLER: I stumbled on a possible mission for your Operation Chaos troops. YouTube and the DNC are teaming up again. The chairman, Howard Dean, is asking the question, ‘Why are you a Democrat in 2008?’ He’s asking you to submit a video two minutes or less, for you to be creative and compelling. They’ll have five finalists, and then the winner will travel with the press and shoot a video depicting a day in the life of the press corps, and your video will be played live at the DNC.
RUSH: You gotta be kidding — so it’s another lottery that they’re running?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: The other lottery they’re running — I think they’ve changed the rules here so it’s not a lottery, but they’re trying to give away five positions or ten to watch Obama’s speech from behind the stage at the Democrat National Convention. This is a great opportunity, but do you really think that Howard Dean and his boys and girls will pick a video of ‘Why I’m a Democrat’ submitted by an Operation Chaos troop?
CALLER: Well, that’s why I’ve put it into your hands because you can do it. You can make us, your troops, do anything, you’re crafty, and I’m sure you can figure something for us to do.
RUSH: Well, we’re still waiting on these public platform committee hearings that we’ve personally been invited to, to start up so we can get going on that. As far as videos into the DNC and what I like about being a Democrat, let me ponder that, Leslie. I think the fun of this would be not what they choose but what we make ’em watch. (laughing) What do I like about being a Democrat? I like being poor, I like being a victim, and I like having to wait for other people to try to help me, I love it when people have their taxes raised. That’s what makes me a proud Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat and I’ll tell you why because I am mad all the time, I hate everybody! I just hate people. I’m mad, I hate Bush, I want Bush impeached, and I’m glad the Democrats don’t do anything about it because they don’t want to end up not being mad, I want to be mad all the time. (laughing)
