Mr. Literal Says He is Standing on Solid Ground!

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Today at 2;34pm EST, Rush said “I am grounded in Reality” and “I am Mr. Literal.”
As the Pharaoh used to say: “So Let It be Written; So Let It Be Done.”

As for me, it has been a long time since I have heard such blatant nonsense. One of the surest ways of getting something you say to be accepted as truth is to say it as matter-of-factly as you possibly can with as little embellishment as possible.

Why? Because most people listen to things with their emotions first and their intellect second, if at all. So, if you do not rouse their emotions, there is a good chance their intellect will never come into play.

Rush is a pro at this. He will prance about the show raving about this or that; and, then he will suddenly calm down and say something like ‘I am grounded in Reality.”

I always give credit where it is due. Rush has this technique down to a science.
