If further evidence is still necessary, then here’s some audio.
RUSH: “Tell me what you think…constitutes ‘a great job?”
WALTER: “That he’s not doing a bad job. I’ve never seen a president yet…yet…do a good job at being President of the United States…and he’s black.” [At this point, Limbaugh tries to ignore Walter’s racial comment.]
RUSH: “So, he‘s fabulous because he’s not doing a bad job?”
WALTER: “Yes…and President Obama had something else on the other candidates that were running…when he won…the fact that he was black helped a lot.”
I caught this phone call on Rush’s show yesterday, too. Instant classic.
A few years back, the Dems had this genius idea of recruiting liberals to phone Rush and other radio hosts and give them a piece of their mind (which, let’s face it, most of them can barely spare…)
At the time, I wanted to write (but was certain David Horowitz wouldn’t have approved or agreed) that most, shall we say, typical Democratic voters of a particular type usually succeed in re-enforcing any existing stereotypes listeners may have about them, and the Democrats would be much better off trying to STOP them from calling, instead. Maybe by bribing them with Popeye’s coupons or some such? (Oh, wait: that doesn’t always work out so good.)
But nobody listens to me anyhow.
