JEFFERSON CITY • A ceremony was held at the state Capitol today to induct conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh into the Hall of Famous Missourians.
“This is something I never, ever considered would happen to me,” Limbaugh said from the House chamber dais.
House Speaker Steve Tilley, R-Perryville, praised Limbaugh as the "voice of conservative America for more than a decade."
Tilley, who selected Limbaugh for the honor, made the official announcement about the ceremony 25 minutes before it was scheduled to begin. But chatter began earlier in the day as Republican lawmakers, scheduled to come in later this afternoon, gathered at the Capitol, and Limbaugh was spotted in the halls.
The event was not open to the general public and Missouri Highway Patrol officers guarded the entries to the House chamber.
Missouri needs a house cleaning. This is just so stupid it's beyond words.
