    Remember Pearl Harbor, Anyone?

    Remember Pearl Harbor, Anyone?

    RUSH: Here’s Janice in Naples, Florida, as we go back to the phones and Open Line Friday. Hi.

    CALLER: Hey, hi, Rush. Sucker punch dittos.

    RUSH: Thank you. Thanks very much.

    CALLER: Pearl Harbor —

    RUSH: Wait a minute. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, hold it. What is sucker punch dittos?

    CALLER: Well, sucker punch is just instead of saying hello, Merry Christmas, I feel sucker punched —

    RUSH: Oh.

    CALLER: — by the election. I’m calling from the lady from two calls ago when you were talking about her reaction the next day, the next week.

    RUSH: Yeah.

    CALLER: You know, it’s like a sucker bunch, babe, and, you know, this is how this country was, what, 71 years ago, although you wouldn’t know it on the news today because nobody wants to talk about Pearl Harbor and where our country was then, but let’s go to the present, okay? And, I’ll tell you, everything you just said about women and looking at the — oh, you’re so right, you’re so right, and this is my Merry Christmas present to myself, just talking with you, because you — I don’t know where — we just pray for your daily effort on this —



    RUSH: Well, thank you very much, because I need it. I appreciate it.

    Senator Bob Dole Calls into the Show the Day before the Election

    Senator Bob Dole Calls into the Show the Day before the Election

    RUSH: Hey, guess what, we got Senator Dole on the phone, Senator Dole is back on the road. He's. Are you in Houston, Senator Dole? 
    Dole: Just landed in Houston and I have Governor Bush and President Bush in the car with me here. 
    RUSH: Well, terrific. We're sorry we missed you on Friday, but you're going all out and I'm telling you, Senator, there's optimism out there. I'm sure you see it and know it, but it doesn't hurt for you to to be told from independent sources. 
    Dole: No, we really - you know, it feels good. We're not obviously if you believe polls we're still a little bit behind, but there's a lot of enthusiasm. We feel good about it. We think, you know, we've been on the road 75 straight hours. We've got 21 to go. The crowds are big, enthusiastic. They want this guy out of there. 
    RUSH: That's absolutely that's absolutely right. How are you holding up? 
    Dole: Holding up very well, we got my - I'm little hoarse, but otherwise in good shape. We get a little catnaps on the airplane and we've got about four or five stops to go and it'll be noon tomorrow and I'll vote in Russell, Kansas, and then we'll head back to Washington, D.C. to watch the victory return. 
    RUSH: Senator Dole, I got to I've got to run this by you because I know if you haven't heard it, it's just going to amuse you. But in the political hotline today, there's a story running around that after the election, should the president somehow manage to eke this out, that he's going to ask you to head up the Medicare reform bipartisan blue ribbon committee? And you know, there's there's all this. The president's going to hire a bunch of Republicans to replace retiring cabinet officers and write your names out there is setting up the Medicare bipartisan. Would you care to decline or accept that offer now? 
    Dole: I'm glad I would decline an offer of over the strong feeling as far as senior citizens. But after he has distorted the truth and the facts about Medicare, I wouldn't feel comfortable serving that position. And we're going to win. So maybe he'll chair the commission.

    Rush Interviews Vice President Dick Cheney

    Rush Interviews Vice President Dick Cheney

    RUSH: Once again, Mr. Vice President, it’s a thrill and an honor to have you with us, sir.
    VICE PRESIDENT RICHARD B. CHENEY: Well, good afternoon, Rush.
    RUSH: All right. First thing. We just had a call that leads me into my first question for you about the economy. The caller was frustrated that the party at large doesn’t seem to be getting the news out about how good the economy is, and indeed the economic statistics are fabulous — unemployment, middle-class wage growth, Dow Jones Industrial Average flirting with 12,000 — and yet we’re told that people don’t “feel” this economy is good. Why do you think that is, if it’s true, and how do you all plan to use the economy in the next three weeks of the campaign?
    THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, I think first of all you’re absolutely right, Rush. The economy is very good. I’ve been involved with a lot of campaigns going back nearly 40 years, and I’m hard put to find a time when things were as good as they are now for the party from our perspective, and you’ve cited all the data. We’ve got over 6.6 million jobs we’ve added in a little over three years now. Home ownership is at an all-time record high. The stock market is at a high. Everything is really kicking along in great shape.

    Chuck Barkley Brings Back Late-Night Comedy

    Chuck Barkley Brings Back Late-Night Comedy

    RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number three. The TNT network does television coverage of the NBA. Now, we all know what’s happened to late-night comedy. It doesn’t exist anymore. There isn’t any. Late-night comedy has become left-wing agenda-driven anger and hate. Rather than looking for laughs from their audiences, late-night comics and stand-up comics are seeking applause for when they themselves endeavor to start getting into the hate game.

    The hatred of Donald Trump, the hatred of Republicans, the hatred of conservatives. Well, this has left a void. There isn’t any humor? There isn’t any professional humor. I think it’s an amazing thing (chuckling) what Donald Trump has done. Look at all of the industries that he literally is doing great damage to. Late-night comics? I mean, these are the people that inherited the mantle and the role of Johnny Carson, David Letterman and all those?

    White Flight and Abortion Could Spell Doom for Democrats’ Future

    White Flight and Abortion Could Spell Doom for Democrats’ Future

    RUSH: Ronald Brownstein (former Los Angeles Times and now with the National Journal; that’s the Hotline crew) with a long story entitled, ‘White Flight — President Obama’s path to a second term may rely on states shaped by the same social forces he embodies,’ and what this story does quite graphically is illustrate that our man-child president of color not only has failed to bring us together, he has driven us further apart by race — and, more specifically, in the Democrat Party. It is white Democrats and white independents who have fled Obama and the Democrat Party. This story details how Obama has lost almost all of his white support. Not all, but almost.

The legend lives on

Jesus is the author of my faith, but Rush is the author of my political sense. Like our founding fathers, he was not a perfect man, but perfect in his intentions and drive and concern for truth.
