Audio: Highlights of Mark Steyn Guest Hosting For Rush

posted at 5:06 pm on August 24, 2006 by Ian

Mark Steyn subbed for El Rushbo today, and here’s just a glimpse of what was said:

Note from Michelle: At the end of the show, the great Steyn mentions the illegal alien who got his photo taken with the Cheneys and Bill Clinton. Glad he remembered that story! I broke it in January 2003. Here’s the column. I’ll scrounge up the photos later.

Steyn rocks!

Two words: more, please.

When you’re in it…you should win it. Hear, hear, Mr. Steyn.

tickleddragon on August 24, 2006 at 5:25 PM

I listened to him through his whole show today. He was alot of fun to listen to, very entertaining. I hope Rush brings him back again to fill in for him.

While Michelle and Bethany are far easier on the eyes, a Vent here and there from Steyn would be cool.

JammieWearingFool on August 24, 2006 at 5:37 PM

a Vent here and there from Steyn would be cool.

I second that! Love ‘im.

SisterToldjah on August 24, 2006 at 5:49 PM

Kiwi Dittos to Mark. Can we have seconds please?

fogw on August 24, 2006 at 6:20 PM

I think he should have his own radio show. Usually don’t listen to guest hosts except for Dr. Williams but couldn’t pull away from Steyn.

I hear he writes pretty good also.

Speak for yourself; I’d rather look at Steyn. A couple of Steyn Vents would make my month.

How many Brits do they have at NR?

Rich on August 24, 2006 at 7:09 PM

Rich:

He’s not a Brit. He’s Canadian.

violet on August 24, 2006 at 7:15 PM

Yikes. Where is that accent from?

Rich on August 24, 2006 at 7:21 PM

I think he lived in the UK for a long time.

violet on August 24, 2006 at 7:26 PM

“In a two party system, it doesn’t help when one of the parties is just nuts.”

Perfect.

Scroll down a bit for the photo of the illegal alien in the White House…

Please sir. May we have some more?

GT on August 24, 2006 at 7:49 PM

FINALLY..mancandy! *lol*(Well you men have been salivating over the women all week!)
I love his voice and he makes so much SENSE! Quite clever too! And humorous! Did I mention humorous? And cute? And smart? And ….:)

labwrs on August 24, 2006 at 7:51 PM

labwrs:

Finally, a girl after my own heart! Steyn is quite wonderful. I have a bit of a crush on him, I’m afraid. Mancandy indeed. ;)

violet on August 24, 2006 at 8:41 PM

I cannot believe I missed Steyn.

I could kill myself. :(

Lady Heather on August 24, 2006 at 8:42 PM

He certainly is “man-candy”!

Thanks for the clip, Ian.

Lady Heather on August 24, 2006 at 8:45 PM

First time I’ve heard a host use the word gook on Rush’s show(or any radio show).

He certainly isn’t afraid of the PC Police.

mjsmoose on August 24, 2006 at 8:49 PM

M. Steyn was born in Canada but grew up in part in England and has a rather unique accent, not typical to Canada, NZ, nor Britain. But what wit and writing style!

Can get a flavor here.

Entelechy on August 24, 2006 at 9:15 PM

He’s cool simply because he says jee had.

Kevin M on August 24, 2006 at 9:25 PM

Well, hello there Mr. Mancandy. More of this, please.

He was great on the show today. I hope Rush brings him back to guest host soon. His Kerry impression was dead on. Ha!

Stormy70 on August 24, 2006 at 10:01 PM

I can’t stop writing choppy sentences. Must be the coffee. And the jee had.

Stormy70 on August 24, 2006 at 10:02 PM

Steyn is waaaaay cool, and I’ll take him here, substituting for Rush, or anywhere I can get him! Jee had indeed!

ChelleFiche on August 24, 2006 at 10:10 PM

I love Steyn’s writing…he wields sarcasm as well as Ann Coulter but he’ll go for the laugh where Coulter goes for the jugular. I had now idea who the hell was on Rush today for the first 20 minutes…I just kept thinking, damn, this Aussie guy rocks. Then he identfied himself and I thought, holy cr*p, I like listening to him even more than reading his stuff (the Malkin effect). From his writing, I knew he was Canadian but his accent doesn’t sound like anything I’ve heard from the UK; like I said, I thought he was an aussie. Anyway, he needs to do more radio. Thanks for the clip.

austinnelly on August 24, 2006 at 10:33 PM

I’m still stoked over this brief audio segment. Was good to put a voice with the writer – had no idea he had such a unique accent.

SisterToldjah on August 24, 2006 at 11:18 PM

Ladies, I professed my crush long ago. :)

Michelle on August 24, 2006 at 11:29 PM

You’re always several steps ahead of us, Michelle! ;)

SisterToldjah on August 24, 2006 at 11:32 PM

Ladies, I professed my crush long ago. :)

2004! My crush has only been since around fall of 2005. :( You win.

He’s the best.

violet on August 25, 2006 at 12:47 AM

Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

Excellent choice by El Rushbo and thanks to Ian for the clips.

CP on August 25, 2006 at 1:53 AM

He’s first through fourth on my list of Rush fill-ins.

Skyfrog on August 25, 2006 at 7:54 AM

Michelle your back-Thank God! It was getting strange around here without you..

mimi on August 25, 2006 at 12:31 PM

Mark Styen is my hero. He is Bob Hope for all us arm chair warriors and is worth a Army Division just doing what he is doing. It may be a bit premature but I think Steyn and Charles Johnson of LGF should be nominated for the Medal of Freedom for their contribution to this war against Islamofascism.

RobCon on August 25, 2006 at 1:14 PM

Steyn has so got it together!! I’ve been reading and posting his columns for over a year. For those who haven’t, check out his web site steynonline.com.

docdave on August 25, 2006 at 6:02 PM

I listened to almost the entire show with Steyn. Wow! I think Rush has got another Walter Williams level sub for the show. Steyn was great and his accent gives him extra zing points. His amps go all the way to 11. The awful thing about consevatives (from a lib’s point of view) is that we just keep getting smarter and smarter listening to guys like Rush,Steyn, et al. All they’ve got to listen to are the Dixie Chicks. ^_^

Mojave Mark on August 25, 2006 at 6:10 PM

I seriously think I am in love….

Wonderful! That man is brilliant, sounds amazing and pretty easy on the eyes! What more can a girl ask?

Noelie on August 25, 2006 at 9:38 PM

Sweet. Steyn back at his old radio game of yore, where he obviously had more talent than he previously admitted to. Give him his own show, I say!

whatnext on August 26, 2006 at 5:15 PM

Less postings from HuffPo and Daily Beast, more Steyn!!!! I am with the rest of the ladies: More eye and ear candy. FWIW, there’s 2 clips of Steyn from back in June with Dennis Miller on Utube. This is like nirvana to me. Two of the smartest and sexiest Cons out there. Oh, yeah!
