Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians on Monday during a secretive ceremony in the state Capitol as police stood guard to keep out any uninvited political opponents of the sometimes divisive radio show host.
Limbaugh, a native of Cape Girardeau in southeast Missouri, addressed a crowd of more than 100 Republicans during a closed-door event in the Missouri House chamber. Speaking from the chamber's dais, he thanked his family for their support throughout his career, denounced liberals and Democrats as "deranged," then helped lift a black curtain off a bronze bust of himself, which he hugged _ head to head _ for photographs.
The timing of the ceremony was kept secret until shortly before it occurred, and then only Republican lawmakers, other invited guests and the media were allowed into the chamber to watch _ an attempt to avoid any public disruption after Limbaugh's selection was criticized by Democrats, some women's groups and other political foes.
Limbaugh, 61, arranged for a guest host to handle his radio show Monday so he could be at the Missouri Capitol. He repeatedly declared how humbled he was by the honor.
"I'm stunned. I'm not speechless, but close to it," Limbaugh said to the laughter of the friendly crowd. "I'm literally quite unable to comprehend what's happening to me today."

Rush...RIGHT ON! RIGHT ON! RIGHT ON!
And, I agree...Davis is just not a good sub. Give me the Undocumented Host any day. He’s not Rush, but I love to hear Steyn anytime.
Congratulations Rush. You deserve it!!!!!
Thanks for the pic link. Rush looks very happy and proud. Wish they’d taken a pic of he and Catherine....He sounds so happy since he married her. Got it right this time!
I think its his voice.
I think it's the excessive number of words his voice is saying.
LOLOL....my thoughts too. We forgive your unexplained absence today Rush!
Why the apparent falling out with Roger Hedgecock, arguably Rush’s best stand-in?
I love Rush but I wish he would get Steve Malzberg to fill in for him.
Probably all the GOOD fill in hosts were there with Rush!
>>>Mark Davis is just the Worst: boring, sounds gay, lacks wit, makes a little sense, but takes forever getting there... bah, turn it off when hes on.
Davis is better than Mark Belling.
Atta Boy Rusty!!! and I set a new record turning off the radio this morning
LOL That, too. Not a good combination.
Good for Rush! In the company of Mark Twain.
I didn’t know this was happening. After downdLoading today’s pod cast, I almost lost - it Mark Davis! Yuk I forgive Rush for this great honor.
LOL as Lib heads explode...
“Why the apparent falling out with Roger Hedgecock, arguably Rushs best stand-in?” I’m so glad someone else noticed this. It feels like years since Roger has subbed for him. He was my favorite, then Mark Styne. I can take or leave Mark Davis or Mark Belling, but the worst is Walter Williams. Very nice man, but way too chatty for my taste.
WAY TO GO, RUSH!!!
Youtube videos are here....
She was spitting mad because she and her ilk were "denied" their right to protest at the ceremony because it wasn't announced! She was denied her Constitutional rights!
