ADDED: Emailed notes from the Rush organization, summarizing the first segment:
LOSERS compromise; Winners compromise nothing! ((Beach Music: Wipe Out)) ((More Music: Ding, Dong; the Witch is Dead.)) It is amusing how pessimism surrounds me. When Obama had the House and the Senate, that was a reason to be pessimistic, and I wasn’t.AND: Here's the full text of the opening monologue.
Conservatism was not on the ballot in 2008. Now we see. 1994 was BIG because it was unexpected; the win last night was expected. Republicans hoped to pick up 17 and they picked up 60. Compromise is off the table; they didn’t want to compromise with us. Losers compromise; this Agenda has to be stopped!
60 seats in the House of Representatives is almost unprecedented.
The previous record was 55 seats in 1932 when Hoover was tossed.
((More oldie-but-goodie-music that Rush loves, this time with satire lyrics.))
And it’s bye, bye, Pelosi and Republican Boehner takes the gravel.
As long as the Democrats control the Senate, what better face than Dingy Harry to represent them. The country is asking, “How in the Heck can this happen, other than unions, fraud, and deceit?” Chuck-U Schumer is unhappy and mad-as-Hell that he doesn’t get the gravel. He and Dick Turbin were going to have a drag-out battle for it.
