RUSH: Okay, folks, I have figured out this e-mail scam. I know exactly what’s going on here. I know exactly what the strategy is ’cause it’s working on me. Ah, this is so predictable. We’ve seen it before.
Here’s what’s happening here, folks. I’m going through the latest news accounts of the latest dump of Hillary e-mails, and about halfway through the story, I say, “You know what, I don’t care anymore. I’m getting bored. Nothing’s happening here. They’re just releasing a bunch of stuff. It is meaningless.” You know, all of these e-mails that we’re reading about today, Boehner’s an alcoholic, all this crap, doesn’t have a thing to do with anything. These are part of the e-mails that she did not delete. These are the things that she submitted that she wants everybody to see.
And this drip, drip, drip. I’m sorry, folks, I was wrong. This drip, drip, drip is not Obama trying to destroy Hillary. The drip, drip, drip is trying to bore the American people. They get tired of hearing about it because nothing happens. It’s not interesting other than this inside-the-Beltway gossip stuff. There’s some tantalizing things in there, some titillating things that are supposed to make everybody go, “Ooh, ooh, ooh,” like David Brock trying to talk her into impeaching Clarence Thomas. Or Sidney Blumenthal asking her to promote his idiot son’s ranting against Israel. Or the fact that Tim Geithner’s lousy with document curation, which we already know, but none of it is about anything that matters, and accordingly, nothing happens here.
The drip, drip, drip is designed to bore people and to make them think there’s nothing to it. Compare it A-B, side by side, Hillary e-mail, original news stories, particularly in conservative media. “Wow. She’s dealing in classified information. She’s dealing with super-secret stuff. Oh, my God, we could all be at risk. Did she know? Did she not know? Is she competent?” Then the drip, drip, drip happens, and what do we get? Boehner is an alcoholic. Blumenthal thinks his kid’s a great, smart guy when he rants against Israel. David Brock trying to convince Hillary to impeach Clarence Thomas. Nothing about anything classified. But more importantly, nothing happens.
The drip, drip, drip continues, but nobody makes a move on Hillary. Nobody, and, more importantly, nobody in the Republican Party is making a move. Nobody’s trying to force any action. Nobody’s trying to cause anything to happen as a result of this drip, drip, drip of the e-mails. And so, the target of all this, our favorite group, the low-information voters, they keep hearing about this, but nothing ever happens, so there must be nothing to it. And after a while, the low-information people are gonna be just like me, “Latest Hillary e-mail dump, okay, big whoop. What’s this say? Okay, fine.” And then they get tired of it.
