58. He dislikes comic books, like you

 

A quick google was all it took

RUSH: I’ve never read comic books, in fact. I just never have. You know, I was stunned. I mean, I’ve heard of Spider-Man and all that stuff but I’ve never read them. I didn’t know Iron Man was a comic book. They make these movies. (interruption) The staff is worried here that I’m somehow doing harm to myself by admitting truthful aspects. What is so horrible about not having…? (interruption) Well, I’m sorry, Snerdley. Sorry, Snerdley. (interruption) Snerdley’s telling me that Marvel comic books are a way of life for American boys. See, that’s… (interruption) X-Men. I never knew the X-Men was a comic book. When I saw the first X-Men movies, I thought, “Wow, somebody’s got a creative imagination.” I never knew X-Men was a comic book.

If there were a repository of every item I’ve ever had, you would not find one comic book. There was… (interruption) What did I do…? (interruption) I did play with baseball cards. I played baseball. I read a lot. I started working when I was 13. I hated being a kid. Don’t forget that, Snerdley. I hated being a kid, and I didn’t want to do anything that was identified with being a kid. I wanted to be an adult the first time I hung around ‘em. They were having fun, plus they were bossing me around. So I might have… (interruption) Wait a second, wait a second! Wait a second, wait a second, wait a second! I do remember this. I have erred. I do remember one time my mother gave me a Swanson’s Frozen Fried Chicken TV Dinner and I read a couple pages of a Superman comic book while eating it, and I watched Clutch Cargo on TV, which is a cartoon show. One of the worst of all times, but it was still on TV. One of my favorite cartoons was The Wacky Races. (interruption) Oh, yeah, The Wacky Races and the Road Runner and the Coyote, but I didn’t read comic books. (interruption) No, no, no. Guys in Missouri didn’t have to go out and do the harvest. I’m sure even people had to go out and do the harvest read comic books. (interruption) Now I never read Sgt. Rock. I never heard of Sgt. Rock. Let me go back to the phones here. Why is this so unbelievable? (interruption) No, it’s not! Comic books…? Comic books are like Rockwell Americana stuff? Sorry. Sorry. Not me.

He actually got criticized for attacking comic books that he doesn't read. Like you.
