Before I even tell you what happened, let's consider the audience first. They were the heroes of the World Trade Center disaster - cops, firemen, families, emergency workers, basically anyone and everyone directly affected by the events of September 11th. This was their night to honor, heal, and give tribute to their fallen brethren.
It really shouldn't come as any surprise that Senator Hillary Clinton was booed off stage, so how is it that her reps are scratching their heads over this one? Bubba got booed a bit too. A caller to Monday's show asked me to do an impression of Bubba's conversation with Hillary, and I obliged, but again: it really shouldn't come as any big shocker. I can't see how the PR people were dumbfounded.
Nor should it surprise anyone that Richard Gere met the same fate when he walked on stage and attempted to lecture peace and compassion to a crowd most deeply and personally hit by these terrorist attacks. His soapbox of psychobabble melted right underneath him. I'm not knocking his religious beliefs, I know he's a Buddhist, but this was the wrong venue to preach to a crowd still very much in mourning. They didn't need to hear their feelings of anger were wrong - because they're not. It wasn't the time, nor the place to lecture these heroes.
And then there was the unforgettable fireman who told Osama what he could do to his Irish derriere. I had the honor of getting an e-mail from that fireman, Michael Moran, during the program. He did me the honor of saying that the firemen were all fans - which was important since the Drudge Report quoted a confidant of event-coordinator Harvey Weinstein of Miramax and Hillary as saying:
"How could we not know this would be the wrong forum for Hillary? These are cops and firemen who listen to right-wing talk radio!" I wonder how many of Hillary's confidants ran into those burning towers after a statement like that.
If I was Harvey Weinstein, in about a couple of weeks I'd check my package to make sure it's intact. Because it was not supposed to go this way. Hillary is not supposed to be embarrassed this way in front of her own constituents.
Once again, they blame talk radio - and since I am talk radio, they're blaming me. These people smear anyone who gets in their way, even in times of tragedy. Remember that picture on the cover of Time magazine, with that fireman holding the little baby after the Oklahoma City bombing? Bill Clinton tried to slough that bombing off on right-wing talk radio, and a cartoonist drew a picture of that fireman thinking curses about talk radio.
Well, I was proud to say that that fireman said - on talk radio - that contrary to what the administration said at the time, the rescue workers at OK City listened to Rush Limbaugh - not the people who blow up buildings. The rescue workers. The heroes. It was the case then, and it's the case now - and I am so very proud and moved by that fact.
