RUSH: Oh man, did you see this show last night? Folks, this was so great! Let me just tell you what happened up to date, and I know some of the future things that are going to happen because I was out there a week ago and watched them film some scenes. Link
But, Air Force One has been shot down by a bunch of Islamic terrorists. The president was aboard. The nuclear football was stolen by terrorists who knewthey stole a stealth fighter to shoot down Air Force One, so they knew where it was going to be shot down, so they had people on the ground. They stole the nuclear football. They decoded whats in there and stole a nuclear warheadactually threeand are threatening to launch one of the three unless the president renounces our entire Middle Eastern policy.
Well the presidents incapacitated. Hes alive because he was in the Air Force One crash. So the vice-president has been sworn in--the guy is the biggest wimp on the face of the earth! Last night, a guy with information on where the big-cheese of the Islamic terrorists is located was captured by our old buddies at CTUthe Counter-Terrorist Unit led by our buddy Jack Bauer. They call the presidentthe vice-president sitting in as president. He says, You may NOT torture that man to get his information. I will NOT allow you to torture him.
The folks at CTU say, Okay, were gonna let him go then.
Thats good because I will NOT allow torture!
So the people at CTU release the guy and then Jack Bauer corners him in the parking lot as hes getting in the car after his ACLU lawyer has already left. They made a mockery of the ACLU lawyer. They made a mockery of the president/vice-president as an indecisive wimp who will not allow torture to save the country from nuclear detonation.
Jack Bauer sweats the news out of the guy. They go to the location where the head Islamic terrorist is running the operation. The vice-president hears his order has been violated and orders Jack Bauer arrested. The Secret Service shows up in the middle of the operation to apprehend the Islamic big guy and actually arrests the guy whos about to ID and capture the head Islamic terrorist. Its a great illustration of how Abu Ghraib is so overblown and so ridiculous. We asked the question on this program to Ted Kennedy and all these other guys: Would you torture somebody if it meant saving this country from nuclear attack? Well 24 did the show last night and they showed what will happen if we get a wimp president or a wimp bunch of people who will not allow torture to save the country from a nuclear attack. I mean I was riveted last night, watching this thing.
Jennifer in my adopted hometown of Sacramento, welcome to the program.
JENNIFER: Hi, Rush, its nice to talk to you. Fourteen-year dittos!
RUSH: Thanks very much, appreciate that.
JENNIFER: I just had a little comment about 24. I think the vice-president/president looks like a chinless Nixon.
RUSH: Well, maybe so. He might look like a chinless Nixon but thats where the similarity ends. Actually, I misspoke a moment ago when I said the president ordered no torture. He said, I cant make a decision on this. I need more time. Theyre in the heat of battle, trying to stop a nuclear detonation from going off, and this guy cant make up his mind about anything. Squishy moderate! And while he cant make up his mind, CTU acts and corners the bad guy and when the president finds out about that he goes ballistic and orders the good guy arrested while the bad guy gets away. [This] president is more like John Kerry. [He] is more like John Kerry would be or any other moderate who simply cant make up his mind until he finds out what the smart people are gonna do. It was a classic illustration of what we would get if we elected one of these guys to be president.
Transcript From Wednesday (4-27-05)
RUSH: Elmira, New York, this is Nan. High, Nan. Welcome.
NAN: Hi, Rush. Third-time dittos. We were happy to hear that you were on the set of 24. Thats one of our favorite shows. And little crowning Chloe [ ]is our favorite person, so we were wondering if you had a chance to meet her and what she was like in real life.
RUSH: She was not there the day I was
RUSH: Theyd pretty much wrapped up the season when I was there. They were working on closing scenes-- The final episode will be two hours And they were working on the final episode. I met Kim Raver [Audrey], Keifer Sutherland, the woman who plays Michele [Reiko Aylesworth], met the guy that runs Division. I cant remember them all. Some of the old actors and actresses that had been killed off were back. They had a big party that afternoon! Im glad you asked me this, I told them how much I like that character, too, and shes gonna be back next year.
NAN: We were happy that she got out of the office and into the field and got a gun in her hands
RUSH: Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh!!! There are people TIVOing the program that havent yet watched it.
RUSH: But I know what youre talking about and it was fabulous! It was superb!
Rush talks about Monday's show "24".
Another great series missed like cheers. the Simpson's. Dallas, etc.
We need a "Jack Bauer meets Vic Mackey" spinoff.
That's the "money shot"!!!!
I wonder if she'll be kidnaped in the next couple of hours? LOL
He's been talking about this for two days now....looks like you got competition for Chloe...LOL
We have friends who are rabid "24" fans, and they tried to hook us by showing us the first episode of Season One on DVD. We didn't bite.
IMO, The Shield is far more interesting than 24. Good viewing choice there. Yesterday's episode was something else, and it looks like something major's going to happen next week.
Yeah, me, Rush and billion other guys. Chloe won a lot of hearts Monday night :)
That was the best part of the evening....Chloe jumping out of the car, readying the machine gun, and blasting away!....
I was on the edge of my chair, yelling, "You go, Girl!"
I didn't realize Chloe had it in her.
Hi, Peach..do you know if the show is on again during the week (after Monday)????
I actually applauded, sitting in front of the TV, when Chloe opened up on the terrorist dude. Chloe's da man!
I predict that chloe will be running CTU next season.
I couldn't believe it when I saw her pumping that guy full of lead. You go, girl!
It will be interesting to see how they do this with Shane, because there really are only two options: Vic takes him out or come bad guy takes him out.
There is one thing I do not like about the Shield, though, and it is that they seem to just "forget" characters and lines. For ex., what the hell happened to Tevon?? and what about Shane's wife? She was the whole reason he screwed up with the strike team, now she doesn't even appear. Ditto Dutch's love interest from last year.
Is Elisha Cuthbert back this season? Grrrrroooooowwwwwwllll.
