Akaka Bill: These are the people that asked to join this country and now they're trying to distance themselves

Rush Limbaugh 3-19-13: Your original point was about Hawaii. Here's the interesting thing about Hawaii.  They had a movement not long ago where they, in effect, can secede.  They want to set up their own distinct unique culture and their senator, Senator Akaka, one of my all-time favorite senator names. I love the Senate roll call when they get to his name, "Senator Akaka..."  He set it up.  I forget the details. 

I got golf buddies in Hawaii, this was going on three or four years ago, we were out there playing golf in the June Jones tournament. June Jones, the coach of the University of Hawaii at the time, now at SMU. And this was all going on, and the native Hawaiians that I was playing with, said, "Gosh, we can't believe it. These are the people that asked to join this country and now they're trying to distance themselves and separate."  It was a big deal, the point.  So just an added little item to your notion that Hawaii, they did ask to become a part of the country….

(Set your watch: How long until the first liberal starts calling this 'racist'? ... tick, tick, tick, tick ....)
