RUSH: Here’s Matt in Charleston, South Carolina. Hey, Matt, welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, the people in South Carolina are furious with Lindsey Graham. He’s being praised by the other side, I might add for being bipartisan, for teaming up with Kerry on this climate bill.
CALLER: He is not bipartisan. He is a turncoat. He is Benedict Arnold from hell. He has totally jumped ship. And, along with Kerry, he is carrying the flag for the other side. And we have had it, Rush. If he was up for reelection right now, and I know how you feel about the third party stuff, tell me if a conservative was to run against him, that you wouldn’t support a third party against this clown.
RUSH: What now? If a conservative did run against Grahamnesty in a primary?
CALLER: I’m talking if he was to — Graham is a sitting Senator, Rush.
CALLER: It’s tough to beat him in the — you know how tough —
RUSH: I know, look, I heard before he was recently reelected I heard I can’t tell you how many calls sounding just like yours, ‘We’re fed up with Grahamnesty. He doesn’t have a chance here, he’s finished, he’s fini.’
RUSH: Well, if it comes down to it, Rush, I’d almost have to say anybody other than him, just so we know who we’re up against. He’s a turncoat.
RUSH: Well, it was just last year, right, he was reelected, ’08?
RUSH: So he’s got five years to make up for this. He’s figuring you’re not going to remember this.
CALLER: I know. Well, hey, Rush —
CALLER: — any updates on your not-so-secret secret scheme, and are you going to give it a name?
RUSH: (laughing) The not-so-secret secret scheme?
CALLER: I love it. It’s gonna work. I can’t wait.
RUSH: Yeah, we’re still working on this. See, I did announce a secret scheme last week, and I asked everybody, ‘Don’t tell anybody so the media doesn’t find out.’ And one of these days I’m just going to come out and say, ‘You know, I’ve relooked at everything and I think Obama is right about it.’ The objective of the scheme will be to trick the media into abandoning Obama because the one thing they will despise more than anything is agreeing with me or having me on their side. That they will not tolerate. I’m trying to figure out a way to get the media to abandon Obama and I figure the best way is to agree with him, but I gotta spring this on people when they’re not looking for it. I can’t announce the scheme and then do the scheme shortly thereafter. We’re working on a name for the scheme, but the name for the scheme will come up after the scheme has been flawlessly executed. We’re in the brilliant conception stage of the scheme now. But, folks, it will only work if you don’t tell anybody.
