This transcript is a bit long, but it's a call where Limbaugh gives the caller all the rope they need to hang their self.

In a nutshell, it reminds me of two members here who can't comprehend that Tina Fey isn't Sarah Palin.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">RUSH: Columbus, Ohio. This is Kevin. Welcome, sir, I'm glad you waited. It's great to have you on the program.

CALLER: Thanks a lot. And I just wanted to thank you for all you do. You, um... You expose every day to me how racist and seditionist, anti-government, domestic terrorists, all of that... You guys, man, it's unbelievable. It really is. That you can have so much hatred for a president that just happens to be black, but I think that even makes it that much more delicious to you guys.

RUSH: Okay, let's... For the fun of it here. Racist, seditionist, anti-government, domestic terrorist, I expose every day.

CALLER: You expose people that --

RUSH: Who are we talking about? Who am I exposing?

CALLER: You're exposing all the people that listen to your program with some of their comments, some your com -- actually most of your comments are that way. Even with your little I guess you want to call it "satire." You guys hide behind that line when it's racism, actually. You'll say satire. All of the commercials on --

RUSH: Like what? Give me an example. Give me an example out there, Kev. What are you referring to?

CALLER: Okay. All of your little commercial breaks or whatever, all your little songs, it always seems to be some Negro dialect you got going there, and it's not even that funny.

RUSH: That's why I say, "What 'Negro dialect' and what satire?"

CALLER: Well, you just played three or four in a row. You got whoever supposedly is Obama saying those things, whatever -- and I only heard McCain in there, and that's only because you don't like him. But I never hear anybody from your side doing anything. I mean, I don't ever hear that. You don't ever pick with them. You're just always one-sided.

RUSH: Really?

CALLER: How is somebody supposed to believe you're "fair and balanced," ummm, when it's that way? I mean, I listen to you a lot, and that's all I ever hear.

RUSH: I've never said that I'm "fair" or "balanced."

CALLER: Well, you know you never say it because you couldn't say that, but --

RUSH: Well, but you just said I --

CALLER: -- supposedly you are. I mean --

RUSH: No, no. There you go. You suppose --

CALLER: I guess -- I guess Fox must be the same way. They're not really, either, right?

RUSH: Kevin, what is...? Let's see if we can isolate this.

CALLER: Okay.

RUSH: 'Cause you I really want to know. Do you read the New York Times? You sound like the people that post comments there.

CALLER: No, I'm not from New York, and I don't read the New York Times, no.

RUSH: You don't have to be from New York. You can read the New York Times in Oshkosh if you want to It's called "the Internet." Do you read and post comments there?

CALLER: No, sir. I never have.

RUSH: You wonder why I don't criticize people I like?

CALLER: No, I didn't say that at all. I said even whether you like 'em or not, if they do something that maybe is not right or whatever, I never hear you criticize 'em.

RUSH: Like who?

CALLER: Well, that's what I'm saying. That's why it's, "Like who?" You don't do it. You have people messing up all the time. What about Sarah Palin? What about Michele Bachmann? What about some of the crazy statements they make?

RUSH: What do you want...?

CALLER: You never say a word.

RUSH: Give me an example of some crazy things. Just give me a crazy thing Sarah Palin said.

CALLER: All you gotta do, uhh, is pull her up. Anything she says, to me, really is kind of crazy.

RUSH: No, no. No, no, no, no. You're gonna have to tell me. Give me an example.

CALLER: You know... You know, and... You know what? I've noticed this tactic, too. Whenever I talk to a right-wing person, the first thing they want to do is deflect the question you ask them by asking you a question.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>RUSH: I'm not deflecting anything. I'm trying to find out exactly what it is that you think Sarah Palin said that is stupid.</span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>CALLER: (laughing) Oh, so you don't think anything she said is dumb, huh? Okay. I see. This is what I mean. You don't have anything. Everything she said is very intelligent and -- and is correct. That what you believe, right?</span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>RUSH: Uh, this is --</span>

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>CALLER: What about...? Okay, let's go back, when she first came out. What about seeing Alaska from -- or seeing Russia from -- her backyard? Do you think that was stupid or not?</span>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>RUSH: She never said it. See, this is --</span>

<span style='font-size: 26pt'>CALLER: Oh, my God.</span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>RUSH: He's my God, too, so watch it.

CALLER: Well, you don't act like it.

RUSH: And I'm going to tell you something: She never said it.

CALLER: She never said it? Okay.</span>

RUSH: This is the problem. Kevin, the audience would agree here that I have been very "fair and balanced." I have given you so much opportunity to be specific about your complaints, and you can't do it. I mean, you want to call me racist. I think it's amazing. The president proposes a budget. Even the Washington Post is saying the president punted on the budget, even members of his own party question the budget, foreign governments are questioning the budget because it's an outrageous run on our Treasury, a threat to future generations, and you call here and tell me that I saying it is racist! It's a shame. We've lost you. You're a walking cliche.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>You are partly responsible for the problem this country's in, because you are willingly ignorant. You willingly keep yourself stupid and ignorant and uninformed, and you run around and live in your political cliched world, and you unwittingly are contributing to the problem that we've got by not getting up to speed and understanding what's really going on. The people that I assume you support are actively destroying whatever opportunity you might have to make something of yourself someday -- if that opportunity still remains for you. That's an open question. (sigh) Anyway, Kevin, thanks for the call. I appreciate it. </span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>He waited an hour and a half, ladies and gentlemen, to use his EIB broadcast time in this fashion. He waited an hour and a half. Now... (interruption) No. He doesn't have a point. His point is that I mean-spirited.</span> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>His problem is I'm right. It bothers him I'm on the air being right because it challenges his worldview</span>, so he's gotta call in and try to Darrell Issa me. That's what he's trying to do. Now, keep in mind I have questioned Pelosi, and over the years I've questioned Kennedy, Kerry, Cuomo, on and on. I've questioned the policies and philosophies of whomever holds office, whomever is proposing policies that conflict with my views of freedom, the Constitution, the rule of law.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>But this caller insists on making this racist! He has nothing substantive to say about anything -- which is to be expected, because whenever the left is faced with a direct confrontation on their views, they don't have any. They can only resort to deceit and lies and all these cliched accusations: Racism, ageism, sexism, starving children, hating aliens, on and on and on. He said not a single substantive thing. Not one. Despite my compassion. Despite my guidance. I attempted to guy guide him into something substantive. But you just heard the definition of "mind-numbed" on this program.</span> </div></div>

<span style='font-size: 26pt'>BRAVO</span>!

The quality of this caller's presentation is WHY THE SCREENER LET HIM ON THE AIR.

Were you listening?
Rush (as do most successful talk show hosts) would much rather have someone call the show that not only disagrees with the host, but presents the possibility/probability that the host will eventually be able to make them look foolish.

Some of them just don't learn.

I hear Rush about 10 minutes a day, and didn't hear this guy when he called in, no.

I used to commute during Rush's show, and I used to hear him 2 hours a day on the road. I've been listening to him since he went national in the early '90s.

Rush would prefer to have no dissent on his show, and normally doesn't have any. Anyone who they knew would dissent is allowed on only if they have poor communication skills and can be immediately portrayed as knowing nothing.

Sometimes callers fool the screener, and then bring up their real agenda to dissent, and usually, Rush just throws them off air, saying that's not what you told the screener (I've heard that tactic from him many, many times).

When you say Tina Fey and Sarah Palin my first thought is mud rasslin not politics.

So what's up with Hillary this last week. Pinned down by sniper fire again?

Nobody would make that mistake, Fey is 10 times smarter.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> PALIN: And, Charlie, you’re in Alaska. We have that very narrow maritime border between the United States, and the 49th state, Alaska, and Russia. They are our next door neighbors.We need to have a good relationship with them. They’re very, very important to us and they are our next door neighbor.

GIBSON: <span style="color: #990000"><u>What insight</u> into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, <u>does the proximity of the state give you?</u></span>

PALIN: <span style='font-size: 14pt'>They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska,</span> from an island in Alaska.

GIBSON: <span style="color: #990000"><u>What insight</u> does that give you into what they’re doing in Georgia?</span>

PALIN: Well, I’m giving you that perspective of how small our world is and how important it is that we work with our allies to keep good relation with all of these countries, especially Russia. </div></div>

Fey made a joke about Palin's moronic response, it was funny, get over it.

Must you subject yourself to such humiliation ... again.

Russia can be seen from Alaska.

This is a fact that no amount of bleating will change.

It also isn't what the moonbat crazy caller claimed ... he quoted Tina Fey and claimed it was Sarah Palin.

1 - That is an opinion and not a fact.

4 - I'm becoming convinced it was you.
