(Rush Limbaugh) – BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: Yeah, well, once again I got the audio sound bite roster today, and I’m in total shock. I am totally surprised. I had no idea that a little monologue of mine has made up so much of cable news fodder since the program ended yesterday. Greetings, folks. Great to have you with us, as always. You know, the weeks always go by faster when you don’t work one of the days. I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday, but it is. It’s great to have you here. The telephone number is 800-282-2882. The email address, ElRushbo@eibnet.com.
Okay, so Bill Kristol has named his third-party godsend to save us all from Trump: David French, a writer at National Review. Why not Jonah Goldberg? Why not Andy McCarthy? There are a lot of writers. French is a good guy. I don’t know him. I’ve read his stuff. I’ve cited his stuff on this program. He’s a lawyer, lives in Tennessee somewhere. And we’ll have more discussion on this. It’s obviously not being done for French to actually win. There’s something else going on. (interruption) Why doesn’t Kristol run? No, no, no. He’s above that. I mean, Kristol as a candidate, what a step down, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Kristol is a manager of events and people and results. He’s not a contestant. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Also, John Fund tweeted out that the Libertarian godsend, the Libertarian Mighty Mouse save-the-day character has got $15,000 in the bank. What’s his name, Gary Johnson. Folks, I’m not mocking here. Don’t misunderstand the tone in my voice. I’m just sharing with you the data. Fund tweets that his $15,000 in the bank and $307,000 in debt or some such thing or has had $307,000 in FEC fines. The point is these third-party candidates don’t have anything. But if, for example, what if Hillary isn’t the nominee?
