Yesterday near the end of the show he had a call from a young woman who wanted his advice on how to deal with her father. She was very upset as she explained that she and her father had opposite views on politics and whenever a political issue came up they ended up angry with one another.
"What can I do", she asked, "to stop the arguing? I love my dad but we just can't talk about anything political."
Asking a few questions himself, Rush eventually found out that she was liberal and the father was a traditional conservative. He finally said that perhaps the two of them should just stop talking about politics.
And then, in typical Rush fashion, he had another thought, saying, "And while you are not talking politics with your dad, take the time to listen to my show every day. I guarantee that will solve the problem."
That's just like Rush, figuring that if she'll open her ears to something other than "left wing mush" it will ultimately get through to her that Rush is right, just like her dad already knows it. After all, she already was asking him for advice; the hook was already set in advance.
Rush is truly an amazing guy. Love him or hate him, he is quite the entertainer with the ultimate ego plus a great sense of humor. That's why he's number one on the Talk Radio circuit. No one does it better.
Have a great day.
