(Limbaugh, goosetepping the pounds off)
It’s the 20th Anniversary of former NFL sportscaster Rush Limbaugh’s day job, and when Rush isn’t going over several years of Oxycontin broadcasts he can’t recall, he’s getting surprise calls from the Bush Family. Topics range from pro-oil industry profiteering to Jeb Bush’s understandable decision to stay “under the radar” politically. Here, Rush kids with Bush 41 on golf and 41’s mention of a rather close relationship to the head of FOX news, Roger Ailes, whose “fair and balanced”® rep takes a bit of a hit in a senior moment when Bush doesn’t realize he’s on the radio.
BUSH 41: Hey, Rush?
RUSH: Mr. President, sir.
BUSH 41: How are you doing?
RUSH: I am never better. I’m so glad that you three called me. I’m stunned here. It’s great to hear from you.
BUSH 41: I’ve got some advice for you.
RUSH: Tell me.
BUSH 41: Slow down your backswing.
BUSH 41: (laughing) That’s what I’m doing is giving advice. I remember playing with you and enjoying it. How are you?
RUSH: I’m great.
BUSH 41: Proud of you, always.
RUSH: Well, thank you. I’m doing great. And you? You’re looking well, too.
BUSH 41: Well, yeah. I’m kind of on the sidelines, but I can’t do golf and all that stuff anymore. But life is good. It’s wonderful, and it’s great having the family up here in Maine, and all is well. Do you see our man Ailes at all?
RUSH: Oh, yeah. I saw Roger at Tony Snow’s funeral.
BUSH 41: Oh, did you?
RUSH: And a couple of times earlier this summer.
BUSH 41: Are we on the radio, are we?
BUSH 41: I didn’t know that. I’ll clean up my act here. I’m glad they told me.
RUSH: Yeah, we’re on the radio.
