RUSH: Well, you know, Bill, let me ask you. You’re in LA. What gets me about this, if I know how long this has been going on — and I don’t live in LA. If I am familiar enough with who Donald Sterling is, what he’s done, what he said, then certainly Magic Johnson has to know. Certainly all these people have to know that this is not anything knew that they learned on Saturday.
CALLER: Absolutely. I knew this for years.
RUSH: Well, of course. That’s my point. Everybody in LA that pays attention to sports — and the people in sports that make LA sports — have known this. Even outside sports they know, given Sterling’s housing development scandals.
CALLER: Absolutely. They’re a bunch of hypocrites, as far as I’m concerned. So why is Harry Reid still in office?
RUSH: Well, you know, I —
CALLER: Nobody called for him to lost his job.
RUSH: Bill, I gotta tell you something. I like you. You are laser focused on Harry Reid. I really like it.
CALLER: Well, absolutely.
RUSH: (laughing) I love that!
CALLER: Because the man’s a racist. I mean, he made racist statements, so why is he still in office?
RUSH: He’s permitted.
RUSH: He’s permitted because he’s a Democrat.
CALLER: So they pick and choose the racists that they still want to associate with.
RUSH: It’s the cause, man. You know it as well as I do. Thanks, Bill.
