A nervous North Carolina reporter called into Rush Limbaugh's show this morning to correct the location of presidential candidate John Edwards' palatial boondocks retreat (Chatham County, not another county as Limbaugh said) and offer his thoughts on Edwards' presidential candidacy.
"I am really frightened," the reporter said about the notion that the former North Carolina senator might get elected president. The reporter and Limbaugh also talked about how Edwards is a "hypocrite" for talking about "two Americas" while living it up as a multimillionaire.
Limbaugh teased the reporter that he had never heard a caller sounding so scared on the air before.
The reporter said he is too nervous to admit in his newsroom that he's a Republican, but then said he shouldn't have to worry about anyone hearing his call and getting into trouble with his bosses because those liberal "drive by media" don't listen to Limbaugh.
The reporter and Limbaugh joked about their conversation winding up public on Poytner or some "think tank." Limbaugh joked the headline would be "reporter trashes journalism" on Limbaugh's show.
No, that wouldn't be Poynter. That would be the KC Buzz Blog. That's KC as in Kansas City, Mr. Limbaugh. We're sure you remember fondly your old stomping grounds, which are very snowy today.
