RUSH: Before this gets out of hand, it maybe already is, this Colbert thing, the first thing, my comments about that actually are aimed at CBS, they’re the hiring agent here, and that’s who I was really talking about, what their decision mean.

Dick Durbin is a devout Catholic and a — and a priest says we’re not gonna give him communion anymore, because he’s not. All these leftists, they fall back on their devout Catholicism but it doesn’t in between anything. They use it as cover, they use it as symbolic, symbolism cover.

There’s no question in my mind that it is. But I don’t know Colbert. I have no dog in this fight. I don’t care. I don’t watch those shows anymore, so it’s — pop culture is what it is. It’s not a surprising move in any way, shape, manner, or form. Now, as far as the Clintons staging things, let’s have a retrospective.
