RUSH: Kansas City, Missouri, Yvonne. You’re next. I’m glad you waited.

CALLER: Thank you, Rush.

RUSH: You bet.

CALLER: We love you here in Kansas City. Wish you would come back.

RUSH: Well, you know, I have a lot of friends in Kansas City, and I have been back periodically, but I do it on the down low.

CALLER: Right. Right. Well, the reason I’m calling is I think sometimes I’m the only woman in the whole country that thinks that Dr. Ford’s testimony was not credible, that her whole demeanor and her body language, it was just so rehearsed and coached. From the way she acted behind the microphone like she had never seen one before in her life… Her voice was quivering and I don’t mean to sound cruel, but, I mean, that was… I can’t believe that, you know, an intelligent and well-educated world traveler, public speaker, can get behind a microphone and act like it’s like she was just the most frail and wilted flower in the world, you know.

RUSH: You know, we had… I didn’t get to this yes. I had an audio sound bite. A Hollywood actress or an actress somewhere that I’ve never heard of did a video impersonation of Dr. Ford, and it was so spot on, and it was exactly… I noticed her speech pattern. Those of us whose profession involve the voice know very well the various vocal techniques that professional vocalizers use, and she used to a great effect what is called uptalking or up-speaking, and that means to end every sentence on an up note.

It promotes the idea that you’re young and innocent and vulnerable, and it’s what you say was the little girl type voice. This Hollywood actress did a perfect impersonation and is being destroyed. She put it on Twitter. She’s being destroyed. She had to apologize for it and tell everybody she supports Dr. Ford, she just was amazed and she wanted to do her impersonation to show her talent, but it got taken down, and I didn’t get a chance to get to the video. Maybe we can drum it up from yesterday’s archive and play it for you.

But it’s a perfect illustration of how she speaks. I have to tell you something. Yvonne, you’re not the only woman who doesn’t believe her. The female prosecutor the Republicans hired, Rachel Mitchell, has put together a devastating forensic analysis of Dr. Ford’s testimony, and it is… I’ve got that here, but it prints out to eight pages. There’s no way I can… I mean, I guess I could share various excerpts of it with you. But, I mean, it is just devastating on the substance. Forget the way she spoke and how she appeared and so forth. And the Democrats are acknowledging it as (impression) “Well, she’s partisan. We can’t we can’t take seriously a thing that that woman says.” And they’re so rejecting it. But, no, you’re not the only one, Yvonne, who has your opinion.

CALLER: And, you know, I just didn’t buy it for a minute. I really did (unintelligible) little, you know… That’s what she wanted us to believe she was. And also in her testimony, we watched it all day long. We just couldn’t get away from it. But her testimony, when she was talking about going into the Safeway store with the mother, she went into the store at another door, and then she confronted or she saw this Judge —

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: — character that said at… Okay, she said she went up to him and said hi and was friendly and how he just acted like he didn’t want to have anything to do with her.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: Why would you do that? If he had just done what he supposedly had done just a few weeks earlier and it traumatized you, why would you go up to him and try to be a friend, then? You know, nobody has touched on that, and I thought, that’s crazy!

RUSH: I did it…Just to show you’re not alone on this, Yvonne, I had a caller yesterday or maybe Friday, that made the exact point that if you really have been traumatized by a guy and you see him in the Safeway, you don’t, you don’t run up and say hi. In fact —

CALLER: Go the opposite —

RUSH: Not even that. I know people who won’t even talk to people they’ve broken up with! See somebody nearby that they broke up with a year ago, six months… I don’t want to go. I don’t want to see that person. By the way, the use… Her saying “Safeway” is very, very important, folks, where she saw Judge, ’cause Judge has written a book. It’s part of his recovery therapy for drug addiction and alcoholism and depression, and he was told by the therapist to write a book, not a memoir, but to write a book about his problems, and he placed himself in Safeway stores as an employee.

So she just happens to say she runs into him in a Safeway. And it’s thought that that was strategy after having read his book that it would give Ford credibility to cite the fact that she saw him in a Safeway store since he had written about it. It was designed to give herself proof or some measure of proof. But, Yvonne, you’re not alone, and you’re right on the money to out of this. We were able to get the audio of the actress impersonating Dr. Ford.

You’ll notice here the uptick. I’m not gonna mention the actress’s name because she’s taken this down and she’s getting a lot of heat and I had never heard of her anyway. I’m not trying to insult her here, I just had not hurried of her. But I don’t want to mention her name and cause her any more grief, but she did her imitation of Christine Blasey Ford and this is it.

ACTRESS: I don’t know if anybody is listening to the Dr. Blasey Ford testimony about Brett Kavanaugh, but this is how I sound. I know it’s a surprise to even me that I talk this way and I’m a doctor and a grown woman. I sound like I’m still back at that high school party. Um, I can’t help it. I just have this kind of a voice, like a baby, even though I’m a doctor, and I’m on this media circus political stage, and I have kids myself that I don’t know why I speak with vocal fry (sic), but you can listen to my testimony and hear that a grown woman sounds this way, Dr. Blasey Ford, thank you.

RUSH: Well, that’s… I mean, that’s so spot on, you’d think it’s her! And that woman, Twitter destroyed her; so she’s pulled that down. But you notice, you hear the uptick there. It is said that this is how valley girls, California valley girls speak. It’s not just them. It’s young girls, teenage girls sound this. And very vulnerable. That’s key to this. The key to Blasey Ford’s speech pattern was sounding vulnerable and scared and just totally innocent and, (impression of Christine Blasey Ford), “Why am I here? I, I, I think sooooo. I, I, I’m not suuuuure,” and it just works. It makes you think that whoever you’re hearing is scared to death, is very vulnerable; couldn’t possibly be lying.

But how many 53- or 55-year-olds do you hear speaking that way?
