RUSH: I was just telling the staff here, ladies and gentlemen, I have never felt happier, I’ve never felt better about being a hermit, about being a recluse. Man, oh man, I thought rampant incompetence was taking place, but even I had no idea how bad it is. No, I don’t think it’s peaked yet. Sadly, I do not.
Greetings. It’s Rush Limbaugh. These the EIB Network. We’re happy to have you here. It’s a thrill and delight to be with you. It always is. The telephone number, if you want to be on the program, is 1-800-282-2882. And the e-mail address, ElRushbo@eibnet.com. ‘
