RUSH: Here’s Vickie in Brooksville, Kentucky, as we head back to the phones on Open Line Friday. Glad you waited. Great to have you here. Hi.
CALLER: Thank you, Mr. Limbaugh. It’s a pleasure.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I am calling you to officially bow out of politics. I am so sick of what is going on. This Cochran thing was the last straw. I can’t take it anymore. My country isn’t my country. Laws don’t mean anything. These people are downright evil; I don’t care if they’re Democrats or Republicans. There’s a handful of people that I still believe in. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, maybe Rand Paul, although my very own senator is getting a little iffy on me. I don’t know what to do. I can’t vote for anybody. I don’t believe anybody. They all lie. I just don’t know where I am anymore.
I feel like I woke up on, I don’t know, Mars one day. I can’t take it anymore. I’ve got a seven-year-old grandson that I am terrified for. Nothing is the way that it’s supposed to be. Up is down, down is up, inside is outside. I don’t know where to turn. And you can’t trust anybody, anybody. When the Democrats and the Republicans are getting together to undo elections, what do you do? Boehner and all the rest of the Republicans are doing nothing. Do they think they’re gonna win? Does Cochran really think that the black people that voted for him for this primary are gonna vote for him for senator?
RUSH: I don’t think he knows they voted for him.
CALLER: Oh, I mean, then he needs to be put into an asylum.
RUSH: No. We are already in it. You have just described yourself as a resident of an asylum.
RUSH: That’s exactly what it sounded like. You feel like you’re in a straitjacket.
CALLER: That’s exactly how I feel. That’s exactly how I feel. I mean, I have tears in my eyes. I don’t know which way to turn anymore. The people that are decent and honest — I mean, look at what they did to the poor governor of Wisconsin. I mean, it’s just now coming out today, I saw a little blurb on Fox News that the prosecutor actually came out and said, gee whiz, we didn’t mean to say that he had actually done anything wrong. We were just reporting to the public —
RUSH: Yeah, what a crock.
CALLER: — what we tried to do.
RUSH: They were forced here, and it was not by the Republican Party, by the way. They were forced by conservative media, these phony baloney Democrat prosecutors, into admitting there was never a case. They never had a case against Scott Walker. They tried to put forth — you’re exactly right. I know exactly how you feel. It’s a profoundly frustrating thing. But the country’s worth saving, is the thing. It’s worth trying to save. Have to try.
