Rush on McCain

RUSH: I'll tell you, if I were to tell Senator McCain, "I don't care what you do, buddy, but you don't close Gitmo because I got a thriving merchandise business," he would move to the top of his agenda. (laughing) You know, but your larger point here, your larger point is, hey, how we gonna keep McCain in check? How are conservatives going to keep McCain in check? I hate to tell you this, folks, but John McCain is 70 years old, and, you know, they don't advertise beer to 70 year olds. They advertise it to 14 to 15, 16 year olds who haven't made up their mind yet. No, they do. That's why advertising, 18 to 24, that's when they're impressionable. Somebody 70 years old, they're set, their politics is set. McCain is very, very confident of himself. He has a very high opinion of himself, and, you know, "Who are they to tell me what I have to think? I think what I think. I'm going to do what I'm going to do." There might be some possibility with that on the economic side, since he's admitted he's a little weak on that.
