Extreme is the ONLY place Glenn, Stu and Pat will be on Election Night!
GLENN: In 24 hours, we will begin either Gloat Fest 2010 or pity party 2010.
I'm I'm not sure which one it will be. I'm guessing it's going to be Gloat Fest
2010. Pity parties are never fun. And we even missed our pity party last time.
In 2008 can you believe it was 2008? Doesn't it seem just like yesterday that we
were on the air and I said don't, don't pity it? It's a good day for America
that Barack Obama has been elected and it's a good day, our first African
American elected, and it will end up waking up America faster than John McCain?
That was two years ago. Can you believe that? It was two years ago this January
that we started at Fox, and I started telling America on television what I had
been telling them on CNN but, you know, nobody watched. Oh, boy, Stu just got
very upset at me.
STU: This is not accurate that no one was watching. We tripled the ratings in
that time slot.
GLENN: Yeah, you went from one viewer to three.
STU: Three viewers.
GLENN: I got it. I got it.
STU: Went with one to three.
GLENN: I go the it.
STU: We tripled.
GLENN: I got it.
STU: Significant. It was hard to do.
GLENN: You can say that again.
STU: It was very hard to do.
GLENN: So anyway, we have the it was, you know, in January two years ago that I
got on and I said trouble is coming and you feel it but you just don't know what
it is. And we had people call up and say, I feel alone, I'm going to give up, I
don't know what to do. We started the 9/12 project and the Tea Party started.
And people started to gather. And on 9/12, was it a year and a half ago, year?
Year and a half ago? A year ago. Seems like forever in some ways. People
gathered in Washington for the first really huge national Tea Party. People have
been gathering in their communities and in their town halls debating, learning,
reading, learning history. Think of where you were two years ago and what you
believed history was think about how much history you have learned in the last
two years. This isn't just a referendum on Barack Obama. This is a referendum

SARAH: Pop quiz. Whose
GLENN: Who we are as people. Are we static? We realized we didn't get it. We
realized we didn't know what was going on and so we got involved. But before we
really got involved, we started to learn. We read how many books did you read in
the two years prior to Barack Obama getting into office? And how many books have
you read since? How many things that you believe today that you would have never
believed? And they are not just because somebody, some dope told you but because
you did your homework. How many uncomfortable places have you been? How many
uncomfortable things have you said? Are you the same person on political
correctness? Is your family the same? I will tell you that we there will come a
time that we will look back at these days and we will say these were some of the
best days of our lives. They were the best of times, they were the worst of
times. Because we have had a growth spurt unlike anything else. You are
beginning, you're at the very beginning of really knowing what you believe.
You've been pushed up against the wall. And when you're pushed up against the
wall, you have to decide: Is this worth fighting for? Today is the culmination
of two years of work, unlike with George Soros where it is just, "Let me get my
spooky pants out and I'll get my spooky wallet out of my spooky pants. And I'll
give you some spooky money." Unlike the left that has just been a political
machine, organizing for America, yes, bwaha ha ha ha ha. This has been truly
grassroots. This has started at your kitchen table. Now, are you going to miss
the last piece? If you haven't gotten out and vote yet, get out and vote. And
then tonight sit back and ask yourself just this one question.
Somebody told me once, great spiritual advisor. I was really frustrated. This
was two years ago when I just didn't know how I could get it all done. I didn't
know if I was doing all that I could. I thought I was but there was so much to
do. And this guy said to me, he said, are you doing your best? I said, there's
so much more. "No, no. Are you doing your best?" I said yes. He said then get
down on your knees every day and pray at the end of the day and make a catalog
of all the things that you have done, all the things that you did and you didn't
do right and make a list. Have you done everything you could? Maybe you didn't
get it all right, but did you do everything you could today? He said your answer
should be yes every day. Then you say, Lord, I leave the rest up to you and
sleep well. Have you done everything you could? I know I have. The only thing
left is to vote.
Now, me personally, I voted by absentee. So the only thing left is actually
standing there to make sure that they counted my vote and it didn't go into the
paper shredder, but I have done everything I could. Tonight I will rest well. I
suggest you do the same. Because tomorrow the real battle begins. This is the
now what we've done is we have called out both of them. Now we now the Tea Party
has said, "Yeah, you Democrats, you big government Democrats, you suck." And now
we've also said, "By the way, you Republicans, you big government Republicans,
you suck." And we're inside both parties now. We're inside the head of both
parties, and we have troops on the ground now in Washington. Starting next year,
assuming that the election goes the way it is, you'll have Tea Party troops on
the ground, inside, behind enemy lines.
This is exactly what happened in 1912 or 1913 with the Bull Moose Party with
Theodore Roosevelt. He started the Progressive Party and he went in and said,
"We're going I believe in the progressive thing," and he went inside the
Republican Party. Well, the Republican Party didn't want it. It was a third
party. He lost. And so it was folded into the Democratic Party and the
Republican Party. They went inside and infected the system.
This is, the Tea Party is the antivirus. It is the antidote for what infected us
over 100 years ago. Now, just understand it took us 100 years to get here. This
one's not going to die easily. This one is going to fight and fight and fight.
They are feeding on the host, which is the republic. They are feeding first on
the Democrats, then the Republicans, and they are feeding and feeding and
feeding. We've now sent in another, another feeder, except this one restores the
cells, but it's got to go in and consume the disease as well. And it will. It
will. We just have to be vigilant. And those who are on the inside have to stand
together because this is a shape shifter. They change the name of words, they
just change the meaning of words, they change everything. They're shape
