Hannity interviews Rush
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 10:06 AM by underpants
Apparently this was on last night. I read through it here are the parts that you may find interesting.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,172675,00.html


HANNITY: You don't like to do a lot of these interviews. You don't do a lot of them.

LIMBAUGH: No, I've found my niche, you know? I like doing my radio program. And I like keeping myself sort of special and exclusive to the radio audience. And when you do three hours of radio a day as you well know there's not much else left to say that day when you go somewhere else and say it.
____

LIMBAUGH: My family is all lawyers. Most people when they come on shows like this, "I'm proud of the first member of my family to get a college education."

Well, my whole family was obsessed with going to college and they're lawyers, professional people, because they grew up in the Depression. That was the formative experience in my father and grandfather's lives.

When there's no work to be had, competition for jobs is intense. And it was a college degree back then that got you your leg up and your foot in the door.

We haven't gone through anything like that in this country. And so I could only try to understand it, but I was just fortunate, or stupid, or whatever. But I was stubborn and I knew what I wanted to do and stuck to it.

My reason for liking radio was two-fold: I love music, and I hated school. And I hated school from second grade on.

And I'd get up in the morning, get ready to go to school, and I would dread it. I hated it. My mother would have the radio on. And the guy on the radio sounded like he was having so much fun. And I knew, when his program was over, he wasn't going to go to school.

So that's what I wanted to do. Fortunately, my father encouraged me, or didn't stop me, because it was the one thing when I was a kid that I didn't quit that I had taken up. It was the one thing I really had a passion for.

And he had owned a little bit of a radio station when we were growing up and sold it to some guy. Obviously, he knew who the guy was. And I got a chance to go in and intern. And that's all it took. And I was hooked.
_____

LIMBAUGH: I thought in the first term that he had a chance to go down as one of the greatest presidents in history his fortitude and courage in staying the course on the war, and all these other things. You know, I've been an adult paying attention to politics probably since I was 10 or 11. I don't remember anybody more hated and vilified than Nixon. Reagan was a second close.

But I'll tell you, the way that George Bush has been dealt with, it borders on Nixonian, the way the personal disgust and hatred is for him, not just by the Washington, D.C., culture, but now mainstream the base I describe as the new kook base that they have literally filled with uncontrollable rage and hatred.
___

This is a well-oiled White House
___

LIMBAUGH: The Democratic Party is stuck in the past. Their presumed glory years are Watergate and Iraq and they can't look forward. They don't look forward.
____

*Check out them discussing the Supreme Court and Roe v. Wade.

______
LIMBAUGH: You know, interesting question. People always mention Hillary's name to me, "Rush, Rush, what about Hillary?"

She puts her pants on one leg at a time like every other guy. She doesn't scare me.
_____
But now you're asking me for a name? You want a name?

HANNITY: You got one?

LIMBAUGH: It's early. The danger with mentioning names is that you hurt the feelings of people that you leave out. I'm going to leave some people out because of time constraints, but when I hear George Allen speak, there's a part of me, "Yes, rah-rah."

2. Va.'s junior Senator and more importantly son of former Redskins coach
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 10:10 AM by underpants
seriously that is basically his big selling point here in Va.

SWEET NECTAR OF LIBERTY

Condi Rices confirmation hearing
1/19/05
http://allen.senate.gov/?c=story&t=press&story=20050119...

Because of President Reagan's steadfast determination, hundreds of millions of people tasting that sweet nectar of liberty in central Europe are now friends and allies," said Senator Allen.

On the 2004 election
10/10/2004
http://www.vote-smart.org/speech_detail.php?speech_id=6...
Ronald Reagan's election changed the dynamic of the Cold War from one of containment and co-existence to the advancement of freedom. As a result, hundreds of millions of people in Central Europe, once behind the Iron Curtain, now taste the sweet nectar of liberty, have joined NATO, and are true friends and allies.

Senator Allen's Tribute to President Reagan
June 8, 2004
http://www.nrsc.org/nrscweb/newsdesk/articles/401.shtml

But President Reagan believed the blessings of liberty must not be bestowed only on a few nations and only to those blessed to be born on free soil; Ronald Reagan, with the strength of his convictions, exported and advanced democracy to continents, countries, and people yearning to taste the sweet nectar of libert.



GOVERNOR ALLEN SELECTED AS "JEFFERSON SCHOLAR"
August 28, 1998

He also pointed to North Korea, China, Iraq, Cuba and other countries where "there are people who have never truly tasted freedom's sweet nectar.

15. Has the BFEE/crime syndicate already fingered George Allen as the
successor? Haven't there been other wingnut show hosts who have been already pimping this name too?

But perhaps they have a 3 year plan to pimp a fake name for a while before it all comes back to Jeb or whatever.

20. Haircut, suit, Reagan credentials, see post #16
Yes he is perfect for them. For some reason Allen is a great sell with the redneck (and wannabe redneck) crowd. I have never understood it.

A few years ago my buddies and I were waiting for WillCall tickets at the UVa-Tech game and walking OUT of the gates was none other than Sen. Allen. I said to him, "As usual you are going the wrong way" He just looked at me with his mouth open as he walked by. Truth be told I am not sure he heard me.

16. George Allen is an incredibly dumb senator
with a famous father. He gave the stupidest interview on Meet The Press a few months ago, talking about how old people can sell their houses to live if Social Security was gone - something like that.

Just as dumb as GWB - which means he may be our next president.

5. Sadly, one of my Senators from VA
He is the son of the football coach by the same name, and he is without question one of the dimmest bulbs on Capitol Hill.

Figures Limbaugh would like him.

11. George Allen background
Born in 1952 in Whittier, CA. Grew up in Southern California. Graduated from suburban Palos Verdes HS in 1970 where his biggest contribution was spraypainting racist graffiti on the school. Also known for the Confederate flag stickers on his car. I was in his hs class and have a long memory.

Followed his football coach father east in the early 70s and eventually became a lawyer. Displayed a noose in his law office and Confederate flag on his living room wall.

One divorce. Presently married with three children.

Former Virginia Governor. Now senator who votes the repuke party line and pretends to be a cowboy.

12. Great synopsis
I didn't know he was divorced.

To say he is a Reaganite glosses over the fact they he is actually trying to become Ronald Reagan complete with the cowboy thing (Allen is familiar with the snooty Va. horse country people -beyond elitist)

His wife ain't too hard on the eyes I will give him that.

22. Yep. Mr. Completely Bogus
Family Values was married to one Anne Patrice Rubel from 1979-1983. I'll bet she could tell some hair-raising tales. Allen's sister Jennifer has gone on record discussing his early penchant for roughing her up.

He's a real piece of work.

Rove had a Nixon sticker on his bike...so the story goes.

13. Ha! the part about education struck me as odd
Rush was actually somehow about to twist Hannity's dumbass hamfisted reading of prepared questions into some sort of everyman (I am guessing that was supposed to be the point of that) thing.

18. I was chuckling about that too -
LImbaugh going on about how well educated his family is - do you think he and Hannity have a chip on their shoulders because they didn't finish college??

14. Wow! That was some hard-hitting journalism!
I wonder how long Hannity had to floss afterwards to get all of Pigboy's pubic hair out from between his teeth.
