It may be surprising that Rush Limbaugh has Mac Pro computers, but it’s not so surprising that he would think that he deserves concierge service from Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Limbaugh appealed to Jobs during his radio program on February 12th.
“‘Mr. Jobs, please help me.’ I know we don’t agree on anything. You love Algore — and by the way, I’ve got no problem with him now, but can you put me to somebody that can get this going, because I know it’s gotta work for most people. What am I doing wrong?”
Mr. Limbaugh said that he was a fan of Apple’s computers but has been having a problem on the computers since upgrading to Leopard. After the OSX 10.5.2 update failed to solve his problems, Rush felt it was time to directly appeal to Jobs for tech support.
Limbaugh didn’t disclose the exact nature of the computer problem, but said “Mr. Jobs, please, I just ordered six brand-new Mac Pros: four for me and two as gifts; maxed out, Blu-ray drives. I’ve loaded ’em up. Our whole office here is Mac, and I just want it to work because I love them — and these two things that aren’t working would seem to me, as a novice, to be a simple fix, but they’re not.”
Rush’s broadcast engineer, Mike Maimone said, “You don’t understand it. Jobs has you tagged. He’s making sure your computers don’t work. If you put out this appeal to Steve Jobs and ask him to help, his reply is going to be, ‘Mr. Limbaugh. Do us a favor and endorse Windows.'”
Perhaps the McCain campaign statement that they didn’t want an endorsement from Rush, would also apply to Apple.
