RUSH: Dana in Topeka, Kansas, as we head back to the phones, nice to have you with us. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush.
CALLER: Just an honor. So thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: Thank you very much. I appreciate that.
CALLER: What I called to tell you was I wanted to thank you for turning me into a radical person. I was raised in South Dakota by dyed-in-the-wool Democrats as parents, I kid you not. The governor back then, Dick Kneip, would come to my father’s house and hunt pheasants. So I was raised a Democrat through and through and through and was a Democrat for years, until a banker friend of mine sat me down one day and said, “Dana, a person with your values, your hard work, you know, your pride, I cannot believe you’re a Democrat. That just flays me.” So I changed parties. However, I was not a radical. You, Rush Limbaugh, have opened my eyes to mainstream America.
RUSH: I love that, turned you into a radical.
CALLER: You did. And I’m telling you what, it is bad. I don’t know that my friends like this, but, you know, even my own sister knows nothing about Benghazi. And, gee, guess what? Because she lives in South Dakota and listens to mainstream America. And it just amazes me. How can people not know about this? If they did — well, you know the election would be over. You really opened my eyes. Look at mainstream America, I was foolish to think that they reported the truth because this is free America. Well, it’s far from that. And I have not been listening to you but for maybe a couple of months, and, oh, my, you’ve turned me into a radical, and I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but my God.
RUSH: Well, it sounds like you enjoy it.
CALLER: I do. I’m very passionate in what I believe in, believe you me.
RUSH: Well, that’s good. I think you probably feel a little liberated now.
CALLER: I do.
RUSH: I think you know what you believe. You’re not echoing what you’ve always heard growing up and just saying it. You believe it now, and if that’s radical to you, that’s great. Stay that way. You’ve made my day. I’m glad to hear from you, but I’ve gotta run.
