LIMBAUGH: Scott in Nokesville, Virginia, great to have you on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Yes sir. This is a real honor for me.

LIMBAUGH: Thank you sir.

CALLER: I was calling 'cause I don't think anyone should listen to General Benedict Powell anymore. The president could have dropped in the airborne units on Wednesday. They don't even need airports.

LIMBAUGH: Good point, 82nd Airborne could parachute in there.

CALLER: And all their equipment and supplies.

LIMBAUGH: I just saw that they're going in there now.

CALLER: Oh well, I guess better late than never.

LIMBAUGH: Benedict Powell did you say, did I hear that correctly?

CALLER: Yes sir.

LIMBAUGH: As in Benedict Arnold?

CALLER: Yes sir, the same --

LIMBAUGH: That's because voting and endorsing Obama, you mean?

CALLER: Yes sir.

LIMBAUGH: As the quintessential Republican we should all model ourselves after.

CALLER: Well, just like Benedict Arnold was a hero until he didn't get enough attention and then he switched sides.

LIMBAUGH: Ooh. That's exactly right. And an apt comparison.


Limbaugh again attacks Powell, responds to Gingrich: "I'm not a purist; we're conservatives, plain and simple, Newt"

Limbaugh: "Frankly, I'm more interested in what Gisele Bundchen thinks than Colin Powell"

Limbaugh: "Powell represents the stale, the old, the worn-out GOP that never won anything"

Powell suggests Limbaugh's comments about him show GOP still has a "problem" with race

Limbaugh: "The biggest mistake Republicans could make is to follow Colin Powell's advice"

Limbaugh repeats his claim that Powell's endorsement of Obama was "purely and solely based on race"
