JEFFERSON CITY — Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh has been inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians.

Limbaugh, a native of Cape Girardeau, was honored Monday during a ceremony at the Missouri Capitol that was open to the media but not the general public.

As a member of the Hall of Famous Missourians, Limbaugh will have a bronze bust displayed in the Capitol alongside the likes of President Harry Truman, Mark Twain, Walt Disney, George Washington Carver and Stan Musial.

Republican Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley selected Limbaugh for the honor but kept the timing of the ceremony secret until shortly before it was to start. Tilley has been trying to avoid a public spectacle for the event after Limbaugh's selection was criticized by Democrats, some women's groups and other political opponents.

Rush Limbaugh is scum and he doesn't deserve to be honored in any way.

Rush has a right to his opinion just as other do. And a lot of wide reanging opinions get expressed on this site and most of the the other media sources in this Country.

The irony is how Democrats who hate Limbaugh for using the S-word just once, yet they do nothing to defend Sarah Palin who has been called every vile misogynistic curse word in the book. This anti-Rush movement is purely political, otherwise they would be out there protesting Bill Maher, David Letterman, Chris Matthews, and countless other liberals who have used vile words against women. Democrats have no leg to stand on after the way they treated Gov. Palin.

Limbaugh has done nothing to advance humanity. He deserves no honor of any kind. Not only that, he flunked out of SEMO, which is nearly impossible to do...

glad somebody had the guts to stand against the so-called feminist groups with their selective outrage and misrepresentation of women's issues.
Cosidering the current POTUS was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize having done nothing to earn it, this is deserved.

Brilliant logic Cheyenne... Something you consider absurd occurred, so fix it by doing something even more absurd... God Bless the USA!

Louis says, "Not only that, he flunked out of SEMO, which is nearly impossible to do..."

Let's consider this reason for disparaging the man:

First, how many other Americans either did not go to college (too stupid?) or did not make it through? Do you express a similar disgust from your high horse?

Second, for those same folks who didn't go to college or did not make it through, yet did quite well for themselves in various ways...what do you think of them? Same disgust?

Third, you showed what you really think of those who do not make it through college...or even start. Of ALL stripes.

Fourth, you need a better argument.

Fifth, and most important, you know his name, but he doesn't know yours.

As a faculty member for years at SEMO who later came to MU, I can assure you it is indeed possible to fail at either school. What a ridiculous thing to say.

Louis, how can you possibly give a pass to David Letterman, Chris Mathews, and all the many countless other liberals who continue to use vile, often profane, words against conservative and Republican people? How do you justify such?

Hasn't anyone noted that Schneebaum is not into reasons or reasoning. His seems to be to spew insults and innuendo to his right, self assured that someone somewhere will believe it. In other words, just a run of the mill, liberal.

Obviously it's "possible" to fail at SEMO but it's 'extremely unlikely'.

Chris Matthews and David Letterman do not even exist int he same universe as professional hater Rush Limbaugh, don't be absurd.
