Posted on 07/09/2010 4:32:06 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
WOW!!! An incredible day for your humble correspondent. A little after 2:00 P.M. I am driving in the car and suddenly hear Rush begin referencing a VERY familiar article. Familiar because I wrote it. At first Rush didn't get my name right so I was yelling out my name as if he could hear it and correct himself. However, he soon got my name exactly right. Here is that portion from the Rush Limbaugh Show TRANSCRIPT:
By the way, for those of you, the familial audience here (and you know this), when I say, "I wonder if my audience realizes how fortunate they are," what you know is that that's a media tweak. I'm saying that 'cause I want the left to say, "Do you realize what Limbaugh said? He actually said he wonders if his audience realizes how fortunate they are!" You and I know what's going on here. This is the dirty little secret. In fact there's a guy. P. J. Rednick? J. P. Bladnick? J. R. Ewing? Let me find it. P. J.? It's in the DC Examiner. Where did I put the...? P. J. Gladnick I think it is. Yeah, here it is. "The Rush Limbaugh Challenge," P. J. Gladnick. "I have found a fascinating phenomenon among liberals. They feel free to harshly criticize Rush Limbaugh yet rarely, if ever, listen to him. And when they do hear him it is in carefully selected brief excerpts or in second- or third-hand accounts. This leads to a lot of misconceptions on their part.
You can read the original article about the Rush Limbaugh Challenge in the Washington Examiner HERE. If you notice, the Rush Limbaugh Challenge is open only to non-moonbat leftists which leaves our own troglaman out. But don't feel bad, Troggy. None of the DUmmies qualify either. However, enough about the trog. Back to my favorite subject...MEEEEEEE!!!! And here Rush mentions your humble correspondent again in his conclusion:
So here's urging people to take the "Rush Limbaugh Challenge." This is in the DC Examiner opinions on yesterday afternoon. It cleared about four o'clock in the afternoon, and the point is that he's right.
The strange thing is that until I heard Rush today I was in a bad mood. Luck did not seem to be happening for me in a project I was working on. However, as soon as I heard Rush, my luck instantly changed. Everything went my way. I am only sorry I didn't make a beeline for the Casino. With that Rush Luck working for me I bet I could have won a bundle at the Cleopatra slot machine.
Now I am wondering if the Rush Luck will work its mojo for DUFU co-conspirator Charles Henrickson who is now attending the big Lutheran (LCMS) convention in Houston where they are getting ready to either re-elect their current president or choose a new president. Got that? Choose a NEW president. I mention no names so as not to jinx it but you can probably guess who I am rooting for.
One final note. The experience of having Rush mention your name and read your article over national radio is certainly surreal. It was kind of like having a giant invisible finger pointing out of the radio directly at you.
Okay, we will soon return you to the regular DUFUs.
Way to go!
You can’t get any better than this! Congrats!
How great! And to think we knew you when! ;-)
Heard it, mazeltov!
Heard it and congrats!
PJ Rednick LoL!
It’s a no-brainer, Peej...have Rush’s name printed in a column, and he’ll be all over it like white on rice.
You should have made that casino run, though. It’ll augment the coupon specials.
Ya know, off topic, I thought you were FOS about the coupons, but my wife showed me her savings the other day, and now I’m a believer.
You will certainly be showered with something from your fellow FReepers. That is for sure. lol.
Congratulations shower shower shower! I didn’t get to hear Rush today, I had an art class but I am very excited and happy for you!
Congratulations to you.
My hubby and I were going through Atlanta today when I heard Rush start reading your article. I said, “Hey! PJ is a Freeper. I read his stuff all the time. He’s good.”
A hat tip to you. You have earned it.
Congratulations! I can’t imagine the thrill.
Very cool about Rush mentioning you. :)
Prayers regarding the other matter as well!
Awesome! May I have your autograph?
I once had Rush read one of my emails online, about six years ago.
The experience was like he was talking to me over coffee.
“Troglaman, I choose YOU!” -Ash Ketchum
Great, you’ve reduced the DemUns down to... Pokemon!
Just don’t forget us little people that have been your loyal FR fans for many a year.
Heard it thought it was from some syndicated writer. Congrats, you deserve it for all your work.
I rarely get to listen to Rush’s entire show but I did today. We were traveling back to NC from FL after our vacation and I heard him mention you. I started yelling, “Hey, that guy’s a Freeper, I know him”. My kids thought I was nuts. Congrats PJ.
I’m a silent fan of the DUFU, but to have such a rising star in our midst is fantastic. :^)
"The experience of having Rush mention your name and read your article over national radio is certainly surreal"
I know the feeling. Though Rush didn't use my name, he used my White House Drug Test on two radio shows and a tv show in 1994:
Google "Did you know that the White House Drug Test was multiple choice" --- 46,700 hits
I was listening L I V E PJ and was screaming at the radio too. I was laughing at his mistaken names but was glad he got it right.
YOU DA MAN!!
I heard him mention your name and I yelled, “Hey I know him, he’s a FReeper!” The look my daughter gave me said I was a little too excited. LOL Congrats!
Kewl ... and now, a la Kevin Bacon, all DUFU Pingees have a Gladnick Number of 1 w/r/t Rush.
Whoa. Like nice job, dude.
^5 PK! Congratulations. I was listening, and doh! never made the connection. Course as usual I was doing other things while listening.
Into the Top 40 like Kasey Kasem in a walker!
I heard it live too. That was awesome!
Said the same thing to my wife in the kitchen.
That is awesome! I think my heart would explode if that ever happened to me. You’re famous now!! :0)
That’s almost as good as having Rachel Maddow read something you wrote! (ducking) Congrats!
How exciting is that!
I hope you celebrated with a good DiGiorno’s pizza.
You the man!
WOW!!! Well done, P.j.!
Wow...PJ!...What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Wait a second,...I guess I’m the first one to say that...
Back to my favorite subject...MEEEEEEE!!!!
I think Wee Willie Pitt is rubbing off on you.
Personally I'd see a Doctor asap ;-)
I celebrated with a steak since I picked up over 40 FREE bottles of Lea & Perrins Worcester sauce yesterday.
Yeah. I was yelling at the radio as if Rush could hear me and give the correct name but...it worked!
