Rush Limbaugh Inducted into Hall of Famous Missourians

Great news, Missourians! Rush Limbaugh has been inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians.

Rush Limbaugh (via Global Grind)

The best part about the news story is that Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley selected Limbaugh himself for this honor and actually kept the time of the ceremony under wraps so that he could try to avoid public backlash.

Gee, it’s almost like he knew it was a bad idea in the first place, don’t you think? Putting someone like Rush Limbaugh, self-appointed slut designator and misognynist to the stars, in the same sphere as people such as Sacagawea, Edwin Hubble, and Mark Twain is just downright shameful.

I give it a week before his bronze bust is desecrated. At the very least, they should attach a clown nose to it.

    If it’s the hall of FAMOUS Missourians then he IS famous (for now anyway, I doubt he’ll be remembered much in a couple of hundred years).

  • Dan Dorfman

    I would say he’s more INfamous than famous.

  • Ron Thacker

    There is a subtle difference between Fame and Infamy.

  • Miss_Beara

    Giant cross monstrosity, Rush Limbaugh in the Hall…

    Stay classy Missouri. 

  • Tainda

    As a Missourian, I apologize for this steaming pile of poo.

    I just keep telling myself we also have Mark Twain, Maya Angelou, T.S. Eliot and Walter Cronkite.

    And just to balance out the nausea inducing face that is Limbaugh we have Jon Hamm 🙂

  • Lucilius

    Why a bust? Why not a model of the planet Uranus, another giant gasbag that’s way out there and begs to be mocked?

  • CelticWhisper

    “Missourians?”  Did they misspell “Hall of Famous Self-Aggrandizing Blowhards?”

  • Josh Hyde

    I called Tilley’s office to complain. From what I hear, his general response following the complaints was a, “Screw you, I’m not running for re-election!”

  •  Actually, I suspect they misspelled “Infamous”.

  • Jeff Akston

    And you are the arbiter of who is famous for “acceptable” reasons?

    There actually isn’t a subtle difference between fame and infamy.  There’s a pretty wide chasm of people who are famous for transforming political radio and espousing opinions that you find offensive and people who are infamous for committing evil acts and notorious crimes.

    As a Missourian, I’m wondering why we settled for a hall of the  “famous” instead of a hall of “heroes” or some such thing.  I’ve got to admit that the parasite is a Missourian and he is famous.   Would it really be that hard to find enough examples of heroism to fill our hall?  The parasite’s supporters would be hard pressed to show he comes anywhere near being a hero.

  • Gus Snarp

    Uranus does not deserve to be mocked, it’s more like a geeky kid who is mocked for something that is not at all her fault and she’s actually a really great person.

  • I like the picture of him demonstrating the proper way to grab a slut’s boob, though. Kind of catches the core of his being.

  • Gus Snarp

    Well, he IS famous, but like you said, there’s that whole issue of whether he’ll be remembered in a couple hundred years. Or even ten years after he dies of a massive coronary. They ought to have some standard for historical relevance, and I’d argue that a list like this ought to be posthumous only except for people who achieve obvious significance (Presidents, Nobel prize winners, what have you). But if they don’t have standards, this sort of thing is inevitable.

  • Gus Snarp

    And there is at least one definition of “famous” that is simply “widely known”.

  • TheAnalogKid

    Rush is already in Purdue Pharma’s Hall of Fame

  • Lucilius

    There is the wonderful line from the extra-bad movie “Hercules Against the Moon Men”: “This will counteract the evil influence of Uranus!”

  • Are you implying that his bust wouldn’t be pre-desecrated by its own subject matter?

  • He meets the prerequisites for induction.
    He’s from Missouri.
    He’s famous.
    That he is an asshole is irrelevant.

  • John Ashcroft is there. He’s no less of a jackass than the Bloated One. An argument could easily be made that he’s caused more serious damage to this republic than Pig Boy ever could.

  •  And the KFC and Hostess Halls of Fame.

  • Alexis

    Hey wait. I couldn’t find Frank and Jesse James. They are famous. They are from Missouri. They have had more movies made about them than Rush ever did.

  • Annaiagaw

    Imagine at night when they all come alive, maybe Sacagawea beats the crap out of him.

  • Gus Snarp

    Hah! Missed that one.

  • Tainda

    I kid you not, I was thinking the same thing earlier haha  Josephine Baker and Sacagawea beating him up with Buck O’Neil’s bat and Ginger Rogers tap dancing on his face

  • Tom

    Really just shows you how being famous says nothing about how worth it is remembering someone.

  •  …and oddly enough, they were probably more decent people than Rush.

  • …to the shame of all decent and intelligent people living within that state.

  • Ken

    I like the part about hiding the time of the ceremony.  Masturbation is usually done in private, so it’s fitting to the occasion Rush should be so “honored,” and the House Speaker just closes the door and lets him get on with it. 

  • BenZ

    Here’s an idea: Let’s all leave condoms and pill bottles by his bust in the hall, especially empty birth control containers.

  •  In addition to their post-war criminal activities, there’s evidence to implicate them both participating in war crimes during the Civil War.  No, these were some seriously evil pieces of human garbage.

  • Becky

    Awwwwww hell.  First that stupid big cross now this?  )))hangs head in embarassment(((

  • Becky

    OH!!!  And YAY LAUREN!!!!!!

  • Neil

    You are correct.  He transformed political radio by using it to encourage evil acts and notorious crimes, while espousing offensive opinions.

    That’s what you meant, right, cupcake?

  • Jim [the other Jim]

    Maybe  a precedent has been set. If Missouri can honor Rush Limbaugh then Ohio can honor Charles Manson.  Or New York can honor David Berkowitz. The mind boggles. 

  • Stevedaly

    I can’t imagine how in the world one might desecrate a bust of Rush Limbaugh.

  • Lanestl

    I almost embarrassed to be from Missouri now…Hopefully the statue will disappear within a week…come on Smart Missourians…DO SOMETHING!!

  • Jon

     Don’t forget the Dominican Republic. He sure does love taking viagra down there. Its not like the Dominican Republic is known for its child prostitution…
