What's It Like To Talk With Rush Limbaugh [As Told By Shibumi]

Here goes:

Backstory: I've been confused about the world response to what seems to me to be a somewhat contagious flu-like virus. Since this all began, none of it makes sense. The other day, I hit upon a plausible explanation: the governments of the world could have received intelligence from their various agencies that this was not a natural virus, but was released from the bio-lab in Wuhan. Basically, they might be going on the assumption that this was a bioweapon that was either deliberately or accidentally released. To me, that explains all of the weird things we now have to do and the fact that the global economy is being destroyed. I discussed it with the husband (aka Bozo Conservative) and he couldn't completely discount the idea.

This afternoon, while breaking quarantine to go to the grocery store, I was listening to Rush. He was taking callers and I thought: "You know, I'm going to call Rush and talk to him about my idea." I have only called Rush once about fifteen years ago and could not get through. That's what I expected to happen. So I came home, unloaded the car, dumped the bags on the table and decided to call. Although I know the number by heart, I verified it online and called. And got a busy signal. I thought it would take a bunch of tries to get through, so I hit redial for the first time and BAM! It was ringing. The call screener (a male, I'm guessing Mr. Snerdley) picked up and asked what I wanted to talk about. I started on my idea and he said: "Wait, tell me that again." I did and he asked my name. It appears I am "Sharon in Columbus." He then told me to hold. While I was on hold, I could hear the show.

I was on hold for a segment and then Mr. Snerdley came back on. He said, "You're next, please be brief." Well, heart pounding, I sat through an endless Boll and Branch commercial from Rush and then I heard Rush say, "Sharon in Columbus you're next." Or something like that. My heart was pounding. I was on the EIB Network with Rush, the man who has received a Presidential Medal of Freedom!

I explained my idea, and he took it in a bit of a different direction in terms of the word weaponizing, but I was on the phone with him for what seemed like a long time, and he didn't cut me off. He did point out that the Chicoms have said that they want to destroy America, and they are doing it with this virus. So really, it did not matter if it was natural or an accident. I also got in a "mega dittos and prayers for your speedy recovery," which made me happy.

So, that was my brush with Fame on the Rush Limbaugh show.

The other best part of this was that I announced it on the CBS thread this afternoon and I shared the moment with the morons and the 'ette's of the HQ. Thank you all for your support and confirming that I did not sound like a complete blithering idiot.

Also... I found the transcript
