RUSH VISITS THE WHITE HOUSE, STAYS IN THE LINCOLN BEDROOM
The Rush Limbaugh Show, August 26, 2010
RUSH: One of the funny stories that I remember is that after my night—it was in 1992 in the summertime that I’d spent the night in the White House. George H. W. Bush was president. . . . I got to know the usher; they were all big fans. And it was like a hotel room—you could have a wake-up call. This was on the same floor that the president and his wife live. It’s a big floor, obviously, but you could order coffee from, quote unquote, room service. A uniformed steward would bring it to you, and I got to know all these people. And when Clinton won the election, I remember Harry Thomason and his wife, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, talking about how they couldn’t wait to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom after Clinton was inaugurated.
So, through channels I reached people that I had met in the White House: “Could I leave a note that you would leave for Harry and Linda on the pillow in the Lincoln Bedroom the night that they’re in there?” And it happened to be inauguration weekend, I think, that they spent. It took a while, but in a couple weeks they came back and they said sure. So I wrote a note, and the note said, “Dear Harry and Linda: Never forget this. I was here first, and I will be back. Signed, Your buddy, Rush.”
