RUSH: Democrats have a really, really great rigged game going on here, folks. They could nominate Wile E. Coyote, and he would get 200 electoral votes if there’s a D next to his name. There needs to be a Republican on the ballot. If there’s not a Republican on the ballot, then there’s a problem. It has to be a Republican.
There has to be a villain.
There has to be a racist. There has to be a sexist. There has to be a homophobe!
There has to be somebody who opposes civil rights, human rights, equality. There has to be somebody who’s a racist, a bigot. That’s why they need the Republican Party. They need a Republican Party that is all of that evil that they can continue to point to and suggest that anything’s okay in destroying them. Anything they do, anything they say. And therefore any candidate they put up is much preferable to any of those Republican reprobates.
You’re saying, “Yeah, but, they would say, ‘Trump’s the biggest reprobate of all.'” They haven’t been able to sell Trump is a racist. They haven’t been able to sell Trump as a bigot. They haven’t been able to convince people that Trump is your “average Republican” in that regard. They haven’t been able to convince people… Look at how easily they were able to destroy Sarah Palin. You remember that dinner party at my own house I walked out of? I’ll refresh your memory on this. I had a couple guys in there who were guests of guests, who are telling me we had to throw Sarah Palin over.
“Get rid of her. The media destroyed her. She has no chance of ever winning anything.”
I got mad. “You guys, you let the media choose our candidates?”
“Well, I don’t care. She’s destroyed, Rush. Can’t rehab her.”
They haven’t been able to do that. They have not been able to turn Trump into Sarah Palin. They have not been able to make Trump into the average, ordinary, everyday Republican that they have convinced everybody we are. That’s what I think they’re really worried about, and that throws open their rigged game of the Electoral College and so forth.
