The Real Story of Thanksgiving

RUSH: Well, happy Thanksgiving, everybody. I hope it is as great as you want it to be, getting together with family, friends, hangers-on, people that got nothing to do trying to horn in on your action, whatever it is. Well, you know that happens. You get a call, “Hey, what are you doing for Thanksgiving?”

“Ah, got the family coming over. What are you doing?”


“Really? You want to come over with us?”

“Yeah! Yeah! I would love that.” Whatever happens, whatever's going on with you, we hope it's a great one. Do you realize next year will be the 400th anniversary of Thanksgiving? Four hundred years since the Pilgrims arrived without guaranteed reservations at Plymouth Rock.

Greetings, my friends. Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of Rush Limbaugh program. We are going to do what we always do. We will recite to you the real story of Thanksgiving as first written about by me in my best-seller See, I Told You So, Chapter 6: "Dead White Guys, or What the History Books Never Told You. The True Story of Thanksgiving."


RUSH: Look at this, folks. I went to the computer during the break just to check and see if anything had happened, and I got a message. I got a message from the guy that used to mow my lawn when I lived in Kansas City. When I lived in that shack and worked for the Royals, I couldn't pay anybody to mow the lawn, but I was able to get him Royals tickets. His name is Dan. So I got a message from Dan. He says, "I wish you could see this. Maria and I are driving out to Colorado Springs."

They live in Kansas City still. They're driving out to Colorado Springs for a wedding over Thanksgiving. "I'm in the backseat of the minivan because I'm rehabbing from a hip replacement. Anyway, five minutes ago, I hear this cheer. Maria cheers like the Chiefs have won the Super Bowl. But of course the Chiefs haven't won the Super Bowl. No, it was because you are on live today. No guest host! Our minivan is cheering that you're there. So bless you. Have a great Thanksgiving."


RUSH: Happy Thanksgiving to one and all from all of us. And, of course, this begins the -- here, anyway, the official beginning of the holiday season, which is a great time of year. But you know what suffers during the holiday season is normalcy. You've got less action happening that normally does, business is slowed down in a sense. I mean, sales pick up, hopefully. But conflicting times, but we hope it's joyous for all of you, as joyous as it can be.
