Stealth Ceremony for Rush Limbaugh and His Bust
CBS St Louis ^ | May 14, 2012

Posted on 05/14/2012 7:00:34 PM PDT by Kaslin

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) - It’s official and it’s a done deal: Conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is now officially inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians. People might have wondered why he wasn’t doing his radio show today — it’s because he was in Jefferson City.

Just before 1:00 p.m. the mad scramble in the halls of the state capitol began, barriers started going up and additional Capitol police and the Highway Patrol started drifting in. The word leaked out that today was the day for Limbaugh to take his place in Missouri history.

Apparently the only people aware of what was going on were members of GOP majority and the Missouri Highway Patrol. The public was not invited to the ceremony.

Republican Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley selected Limbaugh, a native of Cape Girardeau, for the honor — but he kept the timing of the ceremony more secret than the raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan. The public apparently didn’t have a clue as to what was going on.

Wow! How unfair!

He’s not from Missouri and he’s not famous!

The older Rush gets, the cuter I think he is.

The plate on the wall behind the Rush bust is what is making the bust look like George, I think.

Also, Mark Levin, if he has time. I love listening to Mark.

Well deserved.
Is there going to be a pool as to when some tolerant liberal “accidentally” knocks it off the pedestal and breaks it? I will take September 17, 2012.

If he keeps leaving Mark Davis to do the show he won’t have a show to come back to.

Agreed.
I barely made it through a half-hour today before Davis pissed me off. First, he proclaimed that Ubama is not gay (how would he know?) and then I think he said something about Ubama being born in the US (how would he know that?).

I couldn't take him anymore... turned to sports talk radio.

He used to be worse, believe it or not. A few years ago he had his own show on the weekend and he was snide and sarcastic like you wouldn’t believe. At least I can tolerate him now.

Congrats Rush.

I enjoy studying American history and, in that context, I believe that Rush is truly a significant person in the history of America. I would compare him to Sam Adams and Paul Revere of Revolutionary War days. He is an absolute original and is definitely working for the betterment of the country he loves. Libs would disagree but Rush is right up there at the top of the list. God Bless Rush.

Congrats Rush! An honor both well deserved & way overdue.

Yesterday I was fuming at the radio, “So, Rush, off on another of your golf tourneys where you can smoke expensive cigars with your rich pals and then afterward spend half the show talking about it!!”

(Just kidding)

Agreed, his bust will need a 24/7 guard because liberals are so civilized, so decent, so caring, so compassionate, AND soooooooo tolerant!

Since the Republicans control the Missouri legislature, they will have the El Rushbo bust on camera 24/7, not just to protect it, but if some scruffy barking moonbat attacks it, the vid will go viral with the byline “The face of liberalism”.

I mean, why not?

“I believe that Rush is truly a significant person in the history of America. I would compare him to Sam Adams and Paul Revere of Revolutionary War days. He is an absolute original and is definitely working for the betterment of the country he loves.”

Dittos to that and I suggest these remarks do not go far enough in complementing el Rushbo. Not only does he alert us to threats and remind us of the importance of our conservative principles, but he is a self made man who inspires me to reach far further than my comfort level would naturally allow. I often need his kick in the butt and probably more than a few of my fellow countrymen are thankful for that too.

THANK YOU MR. LIMBAUGH!

libs disagree with anything good and decent. Unless it is their way it’s no good. They are SO predictable so we dismiss them in this household as totally USELESS.
If they had even one iota of the brain and intelligence Rush Limbaugh has ... they would be a helluva lot happier both inside and out. However, they choose to stay on the bandwagon to nowhere thus... they wallow in their own self made misery.

“I don’t have XM radio. Is Andrew Wilkow any good?”

You can sample his previous shows online at http://www.wilkowmajority.com/ (XM is subscription so they don’t make curent stuff available for free.)

His voice doesn’t have the tone or cadence of Rush, but he’s a hard-core conservative. He ALWAYS bumps liberals to the front of his phone queue because he LOVES ripping them up. He can take a little getting used to, but I enjoy listening to him when one of Rush’s so-so substitutes are on.

Usual disclaimer; your mileage may vary.
