RUSH:  Oh, the hell with that.  Why don't we just use Bitcoin, to hell with printing up a whole new platinum coin here. Just use Bitcoin, which is the currency on the Internet.

Whoa. Mindblowing.  Huge.

That is the last person I ever expected to be aware of Bitcoin's existence.  Not sure whether to interpret his reference as supportive or disparaging.  Given the context, I'm leaning slightly more towards the latter, but he was also smart enough to phrase it noncommittally.
 
Either way, like him or not (and I don't), there's no such thing as bad publicity.  Yet another sign that Bitcoin is going mainstream.  It's the widest reaching radio show in the USA, 15 million listeners.

I saw it as a sort of probe. Sounds to me like he's sort of on the fence, and threw it out there to see if his caller (and presumably his audience in general) will react/comment.

Anyone have the actual audio clip? I would greatly appreciate it; probably with a bounty too.

There's nothing mindblowing about this. He's just a blip on the radar on the road to currency domination which will be at least a trillion dollars market.

Yeah, I agree it's huge. I see how the first sentence could be seen negatively, like if we're going to super dumb thing, lets just do kind of dumb thing. But I don't think that is even very negative.

But then he just flatly claims that bitcoin is the currency of the internet. It's big. Not in the sense that it alone will do anything, it just reveals/confirms where things are at.

Yeah, that was kind of how I read it.  But it's hard to say for sure.  What's more important is the fact that he mentioned it at all.  And that's really kind of odd.  Because he has to know that the vast majority of his listeners will have no idea what the hell Bitcoin is.  Maybe julz is right that it was a sort of probe to see how his audience will react, and that maybe he's on the fence (perhaps intrigued by the idea but still skeptical).  

But yeah, it's big and in exactly the way you indicate.

"Just use Bitcoin, which is the currency on the Internet."

This could honestly be like the slogan for the foundation or bit-pay or something.

Yep, regardless of his intent, the way the phrase reads in isolation, is actually a great slogan.

Perhaps he should be voted to the board of the Foundation Wink

The transcript seems negative for reasons already mentioned (don't do stupid thing X, just do stupid thing Y) but his tone in the actual show (audio) is positive. His voice actually jumps up a couple notes when he says "bitcoin." And then to bother explaining it in the tiniest of bits at all...seems like he wants to talk about it.
