RUSH: It’s getting pathetic now. Grab number 27. You know, J.D. Hayworth is running against McCain out there in Arizona and Charlie Crist the current Florida governor is in a tight fight primary. He’s losing in the primary to Marco Rubio. So last night Governor Crist was on with Greta Van Susteren. She said, ‘Sort of a punch-back which occurred previously is that you’ve said about your opponent, Mr. Rubio, that he’s the greatest fraud perpetrated. So it sounds like you’ve had a couple of punches back as well. What do you say to that?’
CRIST: He had a Republican Party of Florida credit card that he charged a $130 haircut — or maybe it was a back wax. We’re not really sure what all he had at that place. In addition to that, he —
VAN SUSTEREN: Wait a second. Stop.
CRIST: He — he — he —
VAN SUSTEREN: Wait. A back wax?
CRIST: I don’t know what it was.
VAN SUSTEREN: Wait a second.
CRIST: You know?
VAN SUSTEREN: I know, but I mean, was there a suggestion that it was for a back wax? Are you being flip?
CRIST: I don’t know what it was. Uh, Initially we were told it was a haircut. I don’t know. You spend $130 for maybe a haircut and maybe other things. Uhhh, I don’t know what you do at a salon when you’re a guy. I get my haircut for 11 bucks from a guy named Carl the barber in St. Petersburg, Florida, where I grew up. And, you know, to me that’s real fiscal conservatism.
RUSH: We got the John Edwards technique being applied here. (sigh) ‘Real fiscal conservatism’ is ’11 bucks’ for a haircut. So Marco Rubio, he’s not qualified, folks, because he might get back waxes. He’s not qualified. You need to know this. (laughing)
