RUSH: Renee in Orland, Maine. I’m glad you called. Welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. This is so great to talk to you. I’m a little nervous so just bear with me.
CALLER: I really just want to thank you. I’ve listened for two years, and with help from my husband and from you I have learned so much. And I want to admit today on air that I had some liberal views that I am just totally ashamed of, looking back on my career as health teacher in Massachusetts. And I really just want to send a message out today that teachers, you know, we’re responsible for the kids in the schools a lot of times and what we’re teaching them;and, you know, pushing a liberal agenda on children is shameful. I’ve learned so much about conservatism from you that looking back, I just can’t believe some of the things that I was teaching my students, and also encouraging them with the liberal agenda.
RUSH: You must have a tremendous amount of guilt.
CALLER: I do. (giggles)
RUSH: Given what you now think versus what you thought back then. When did you first discover this program?
CALLER: Well, my husband and I moved to Maine two years ago and they have you right on an FM station and I just was floating around one day and I said, ‘Hey, Steve, have you listened to Rush?’ and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I’ve listened to him before.’ My husband’s in the military so we just love you. (giggles)
RUSH: Well, thank you very much. It’s a great call.
CALLER: Oh, thanks. One other thing to let you know. In January this year we had our first Rush Baby, and my husband is probably going to kill me right now because no one else knows but except for him and I that we’re expecting our second Rush Baby. So this is big news.
RUSH: So you are making a national announcement that only your husband knows. Your husband does know the baby is coming?
CALLER: Yes, he found out yesterday.
RUSH: And now the nation knows that Renee in Orland, Maine, is having her second Rush Baby.
RUSH: What a way to announce it.
CALLER: Thanks. My mom’s going to kill me. (giggling)
CALLER: But I had to tell you first.
RUSH: (laughing) Well, but you telling her at the same time. Does she listen?
CALLER: She’s probably not right now. They’re on their way back from Vegas. So…
CALLER: You know, it might be a good thing if she doesn’t hear it. (giggling)
RUSH: She will be proud of you.
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. Thanks for everything that you do!
RUSH: Thanks very much, Renee. I appreciate it.
