Is Obama Really Visiting His Sick Grandmother? – Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey

In this excerpt from Wednesday’s show, The Mack Truck investigates the real reason Barack Obama plans to leave the campaign trail. A transcript follows the jump.

HENRY: Yes, this is The Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey Show. Welcome.

Very pleased to have with us today a representative of the Obama campaign. Harold Lauderdale, very brave of you to come on the show, stand in the path of The Mack Truck. So, thank you for being here.

LAUDERDALE: Of course. You have the best show on radio.

HENRY: Oh, thank you. That’s very kind of you. Now, I know you may be a bit shaken, having to sit in for this interview.

LAUDERDALE: I’m very scared, because you’re such a tough interviewer.

HENRY: That’s right. I don’t do small talk and I don’t shy away from the hard questions.


I said, “I don’t do small talk and I don’t shy away from the hard questions.”

LAUDERDALE: Oh–yes, yes. I’ve seen you. They don’t call you The Mack Truck for nothing.

HENRY: No. No, they don’t.

All right. Let’s get down to it, Mr. Lauderdale. This week, Senator Obama announced he would be leaving the campaign, starting tomorrow, supposedly to visit his sick grandmother.

LAUDERDALE: That’s correct.

HENRY: Mr. Lauderdale isn’t Mr. Obama in fact leaving the campaign to meet with William Ayers, the former terrorist and member of the Weather Underground?

LAUDERDALE: Yes. That’s true. How did you go and uncover that? Damn you.

HENRY: Isn’t William Ayers right now on a plane to Hawaii, where he will wait on a beach for Mr. Obama, where they will meet and share a drink with an umbrella in it and plot the overthrow of the U.S. government?

LAUDERDALE: Yes, yes. My goodness. How do you know that?

HENRY: And isn’t ‘grandmother’ actually radical terrorist shorthand for Bill Ayers? A handle, if you will?

LAUDERDALE: Yes, that’s also true.

HENRY: I thought so. And isn’t Mr. Obama’s handle Muslim Man?

LAUDERDALE: Yes, because he loves being a Muslim more than anything.


Mr. Lauderdale, isn’t it true that there really is no grandmother? That if I traveled to Hawaii, what I would find in the bed where she should be would be William Ayers in bed in makeup and a nighty, pretending to be Mr. Obama’s grandmother?

LAUDERDALE: I thought Ayers was on the beach.

HENRY: He goes back and forth. Now, wouldn’t I find Mr. Ayers in that bed, Mr. Lauderdale?

LAUDERDALE: Uh… Uh… Yes, Mr. Obama would be in the bed. Yes.

HENRY: No. No, no. Mr. Ayers would be in bed, right, Mr. Lauderdale? Not Mr. Obama.

LAUDERDALE: (shuffling papers) Uh… one minute. I–

Henry, I lost my place! I lost my place!


HENRY: Uh, I want to thank Mr. Lauderdale for coming on the show. Apparently, we lost connection. It takes courage to stand in the path of The Mack Truck, which is filled with truth, and he tried, and we have to commend him for that. Trying is great.
