RUSH: This coming Sunday night The Family Guy episode starring me. The title of The Family Guy episode is "Excellence in Broadcasting." The premise is I am in town for a book signing. Of course I haven't written a book in 16 years, but I'm in the town where this wacko family lives, doing a book signing, and the family dog comes down to start giving me some grief, Brian, and I rescue the dog from some precarious situation. The dog becomes a big conservative, follows me around, actually gets more conservative than I am, starts calling me a weenie and all sorts of stuff. We taped this a year ago. It's a half hour episode, I think, and it takes a year to animate these things. So it was a year ago, and I got an e-mail from Seth McFarlane last night. It's premiere airdate is this Sunday, it's 9:30 Eastern and Pacific Time.

Fox has released four pictures, four photos, cartoon stills from the episode. We put 'em at our Facebook page, Facebook.com/RushLimbaugh. I looked at some of the comments that people have written and they run the gamut. "Rush, sorry you had to lower yourself to be on that program. I won't be watching." "Rush, are you that hard up? You're doing this for money?" Well, I don't even know what I got paid to do this. Whatever it is it's union scale. I didn't do this for the money. I did this for the fun of it. I've been in a couple Family Guy episodes already and I gotten to know Seth McFarlane pretty well. Yeah, he's a Hollywood liberal but we get along.

Seth appreciates and has a great affection for professionals, and we're all professionals here. You know, this was hard work, too. We were in the sound booth for three or four days at four hours a time. I even sing in this episode. I sing, but I sang a song that I've never heard before, and so I really don't know what the melody was. I had to guess. And for Seth... It's really interesting when I try to explain people, because they can hear me and I can hear them, and I can carry on a conversation. It's tough for people to understand that I cannot distinguish music melodies if I've never heard it before. So he's singing the song in a bunch of different ways trying to get me the melody.

I said, "Seth, I'm sorry. It all sounds the same note to me. All I can do is imitate what I'm hearing you do." (singing) "I live in Republican town!" That's what it sounds like to me. I don't know if that's what the song really is. So I end up sort of talking it with my usual bravado and bombast and so forth. It was a lot of fun and it's Sunday night. Fox, by the way, is bigger this on their PR page. You have to scroll all the way to the bottom. It's like 25 pages of PR on their shows coming up this week, and they're burying it out there that it airs. And people ask me, Andrew Breitbart sent me a question: "Why did I have to look real hard to find out when this was?"

Probably because it's pretty good. Family Guy has their own built-in audience. You know, it's not everybody's cup of tea. This program crosses a line every night that it's on. It runs up to the border and goes over it. But I like Seth. I was offered the opportunity to do it, and it was a new challenge. And what the hell? I'm into the crossover. I'll be happy to do it and see what happens. I know some of this audience don't like The Family Guy. You know, it is what it is. But they didn't put any curse words or foul mouth in my script. You know, I am El Rushbo. I come out looking like a champ on this thing. So... (interruption) No, I've not seen it. (interruption) I don't care what the edited version is. There was nothing in the script that I would want them to edit out.


Interesting!

Not the first time Rush has been in an episode of Family Guy. He had a bit part in the first Star Wars parrody.

Sounds like a satire on the tea party wing of the Republican Party and the Purge.

I watched it last night...thought for the most part it was funny...but it was typical Seth McFarlan crap and tied Conservatives in with the GOP pretty hardcore, there were a few seens that weren't funny at all, but over all it was one of the better Family Guy episodes

Not sure how it is in your country but in the United States if you run for office on the Republican Party ticket, that makes you a Republican. While there are a few Tea Party candidates, most of the high profile so-called tea party candidates are Republicans.

Can the Republican party bar someone from running as a Republican?

Dont confuse me for a witless fool like Wei, Doblo. The Tea Party is not allied with any one party, nor is it a wing of any party , it is an independent movement. There are Tea Party Republicans, there are (shock horror) Tea Party Democrats, but it is in of itself not an official party.

Yes, too late for you. Every post you make shows just how confused you really are about everything.

I'll try to catch it. I thought I heard that Brian went overboard and started calling Rush a RINO or something.

More or less, I don't recall exactly what he said. It was a worthwhile episode.
