Hooray!… Missouri House to Honor Rush Limbaugh With His Bust in Capitol Rotunda
Yes! This news couldn’t come at a better time…
The Missouri House intends to honor Rush Limbaugh this session with the unveiling of his bust in the Capitol rotunda.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported:
Limbaugh’s comments last week about a young law school student have caused some advertisers to flee his radio show. But if the leader of the Missouri House has his way, the broadcast icon soon will be in the company of Harry Truman, Walt Disney and Stan Musial.
House Speaker Steve Tilley, R-Perryville, intends to honor Limbaugh with a place in the Hall of Famous Missourians, a ring of busts in the Capitol rotunda recognizing prominent Missourians.
The unveiling is not expected until closer to the end of the legislative session in May. But word of the honor leaked Monday, just as the furor over Limbaugh’s remarks continued to build.
Although the statues are commissioned with private funds, Democrats are already expressing anger at the decision to enshrine Limbaugh next to luminaries of science, culture and politics who have called Missouri home.
