Rush’s Cure For Election Blues – Buys Woman $58,000 Car!
During the run-up to the presidential election, conservative radio talk show king Rush Limbaugh fielded calls from listeners who were concerned about an Obama administration, including a Texas woman by the name of Belinda Davis who he thought sounded a bit under the weather with a cold.
“Have you heard of Zicam?” Limbaugh asked. “I would go out and get some and swab your nose. I’ll tell you what else I am going to do. I’m going to send you a copy of Vince Flynn’s latest novel.”In addition to Vince Flynn’s latest novel, I’m going to buy you a car,” he added.
Of course Belinda Davis at first thought that the self proclaimed conservative prophet was kidding. Today she is cruising the Lone Star State in a brand new Black Chevy Tahoe worth $58,000.00, courtesy of Limbaugh, whose only conditions for giving her the car was that she try his recommended cold medication and that the car be made by General Motors.
It was on a whim, Limbaugh said. She sounded so tired, distraught, and frightened about her and her husband’s business future with an Obama victory.
I just wanted to brighten her day, keep her inspired and ‘in the game. We will need people like Belinda Davis to keep the country moving.”
Davis runs a small jewelry business with her husband in Kerrville, Texas and called Limbaugh on Oct. 28 to complain about Hollywood celebrities getting undo attention during the election season while everyday working people like herself and her husband are ignored.
Belinda Davis told Gretchen Carlson of Fox News in an interview that the story tugged at Limbaugh’s heart strings and she was just in the line of his heart.
And as luck would have it, the transmission had just died in her car, and they were worried they wouldn’t be able to afford the increased monthly payments on a new one.
