|RUSH: Leslie in Jacksonville, Florida, welcome to the program.
CALLER: Hey! How you doing, Rush?
RUSH: Fine. Thank you.
CALLER: I love your show and I love you and I just wanted to share, quickly, a story with you about my ten-year-old son. During the election, they were given a sheet of paper, and they had on there, you know, to vote for Obama, McCain, or “other.” And I found out “other” meant, like, Ron Paul or somebody else. Well, Chance put “other,’ and he put “Rush ‘Baugh’” because he didn’t know your whole last name. So I got a call from the principal to come down there, and they got him in the principal’s office, and they asked him to read to me what he had wrote down. Well, I knew who he was talking about, and I said, “He’s talking about Rush Limbaugh,” and they said, “No, we know that. That’s not appropriate for him to be talking about him in class. You shouldn’t be throwing your views on him.” And Chance said, “She’s not. All I know is that she says that Rush is smarter than my daddy.” (laughing) So he thought you should have been president.

LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT- The PARENT is wrong for discussing views such as Rush Limbaugh’s with HIS OWN SON, but it is OK for the teachers, the school, to have the children sing the praises of Chairman, oops, President Obama!
Sarah Palin: “Going Rogue”
The AP reports that Sarah Palin’s memoir will be published on Nov. 17.
The title is “Going Rogue” — an allusion to the in-fighting between Team Sarah and the McCainiancs that broke out in the last weeks of the campaign.
Should be quite a compelling read.
Just two days before the first 2008 Presidential Debate in Oxford, MS, Sen. John McCain made a decisiom that defines his LEADERSHIP Skills by postponing any campaign events scheduled so he could return to Washington DC to participate in the discussions and debates regarding the mortgage crisis bailout.
Sen. McCain has called upon his opponent, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) to cease his campaign activities and return to Washington DC as well, and he further has suggested that both camps make the necessary arrangements to postpone the debate that is scheduled for September 26th, 2008.
In making this extremely bold move, the maverick Senator has shown the drive and initiative that defines him as a leader, ready to take control of our country. From the political motivation, McCain’s move has put Obama into the tenuous position of having to follow the lead of the real Leader! Obama cannot opt to continue campaign activities while McCain returns to Washington, nor can he not agree to a postponement of the debate, as either of those two moves would show that he is not taking his role as a Senator serious, and not addressing the mortgage crisis issue. However, he also is in the position of not having been the candidate to put this idea out first, showing the true extent of his leadership skills.
We can watch what happens in DC over the next few days. I have been emailing and faxing every possible legislator to discuss my angst in this bailout, which will provide no benefit to those of us middle class Americans who have met our financial obligations and responsibilities. But the positive that is emerging is the emergence of John McCain as our true leader.
UPDATE: After saying he could be “reached if needed”, and would not postpone the debates, Sen. Obama was invited to join the top Congressional leaders and Sen. McCain in a meeting with President Bush at the White House. At this point, the Obama had no choice but to follow McCain’s lead. (Either that, or Michelle thinks she can get some window measurements early– you know she’s ever the optimist!!)
