Did anyone hear the caller to Rush — about an hour after this news conference — who said he’d voted for Obama because of Obama’s “humility”. Rush pretty much hung up on him, and he almost never does that!
He was the one who extended his "sympathy" to Rush, and then went on about how humble both Biden and Obama are.
I thought Rush handled him beautifully.
He needs to do a lot more of it. I, for the most part, change stations when he takes calls now days. He used to have no patience for sycophantic callers. Now he lets them drone on forever about how much they love him.
He used to tightly manage that aspect of the show with seminars for callers and the shtick about the purpose of the caller being to make the host look good. He seems to have forgotten all of that, and will let any idiot or conspiracy theorist babble on and on for whole segments.
