RUSH: This is Lynn in Cheyenne, Wyoming. It’s great to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Mr. Limbaugh, I just want to say it is a pleasure to finally get on to speak to you.
RUSH: Glad you got through. Thank you.
CALLER: I’ve been listening to you for over 20 years. A friend of mine in Alaska brought me on and told me a little bit about you, and I just wanted to let you know that as of November 6, 2012, I am the first black conservative Republican elected into our House of Representatives, and I have to say, a lot of it is due to being a student of your advanced conservative studies.
RUSH: I’m so gratified. You are the first black conservative elected to statehouse in Wyoming?
CALLER: Conservative Republican, yes, sir, and I’m really proud of it, despite the lackluster bittersweet win on the 6th. I’ve been wanting to just let you know that listening to you and researching what you’re saying and reading on my own and prayer made me want to get up off the couch and give it a whirl. This is my second chance trying, and we won with 72% of the vote.
RUSH: Seventy-two percent of the vote?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: Way to go!
CALLER: Thank you very much. And that’s for standing up with my conservative values and letting people know from the get-go that I am conservative and not trained to hide it or, you know, keep it in the background. It was awesome.
RUSH: I’ll tell you, God bless you. You realize what you’re in for.
CALLER: Yeah, and I wanted to put a plug in for your tea. I had a party a while back, it was a Bill of Rights party, and one of my friends brought over your raspberry tea, and I thought, “Oh, my goodness, he spent a lot of money, he brought this tea over,” and as soon as he left the party, and just so you know, some of the guests took some of the tea with them when they left, we looked up online the price of your tea, and I tell you, your tea is cheaper than Snapple, and I think the raspberry is the best.
RUSH: Well, I love the raspberry, too, but I think the blueberry is a close second. When you open the bottle of the blueberry, you get the aroma, you think you’re smelling the batter for blueberry muffins, with, of course, the hint of tea.
RUSH: It is cheaper than Snapple, but you gotta factor in shipping costs. But you had, what did you say, a Bill of Rights party?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: What do you do at a Bill of Rights party? Who did you invite, and who showed up?
CALLER: Well, I invited my conservative friends, and they all came. A legislator’s husband came. Just conservative friends, and we just talk about issues that are important to us. When I had my Constitution Party, I had the Constitution playing, the audio playing in the background, and we just talk about politics and religion and it’s just an awesome time.
RUSH: My goodness. My goodness. See, folks, in pockets out there, stuff is happening. And, you know, she’s happy to talk about it. It’s not like she’s doing this behind closed doors hoping nobody noticed. Anyway, that’s fabulous. Lynn, congratulations. We’re honored here to hear from you. Thank you so much. By the way, you haven’t been sworn in yet, right?
CALLER: No, sir. That will be in January.
RUSH: Okay, so you don’t have any limits on what you can accept gift-wise yet, right?
CALLER: No, sir.
RUSH: Right. Okay. Well, I’ve got so much stuff back there in my prize closet. What you need, iPhone 5, do you need an iPad?
CALLER: I don’t have any of those things. I think it’s awesome.
RUSH: You don’t have any of those things?
RUSH: Okay, which do you want?
CALLER: I have a little slider phone. My husband and I always go for the cheapest phone. So I don’t know what to do.
RUSH: You want to try an iPhone 5?
CALLER: Sure. I guess. I don’t know. That would be awesome.
RUSH: Are you happy with the phone that you’ve got?
CALLER: No, sir. It’s pretty bad.
RUSH: All right. Do you live where you can get AT&T cellular service?
CALLER: Verizon is what we can get out there.
RUSH: Aw, darn, I don’t have any Verizon phones. Okay, so it can’t be that. I’ll tell you what, how about a Retina MacBook Pro 15-inch laptop?
CALLER: Whoa! Ho-ho-ho-ho.
RUSH: That’s the ticket. That’s the thing for you. Hang on, Lynn, we’ll get the address to ship the thing out to you tomorrow. You’ll have it then. Really great. Thank you so much for the tea plug, but for running, for running and for winning and being so optimistic about it.
