RUSH: Brian, Jefferson City, Missouri, where I was yesterday. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Rush, let me be the first Missourian to publicly congratulate you on being inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir. I appreciate that. Were you anywhere near the capitol yesterday?
CALLER: Yes, I was. I’m sure your mom and dad are smiling down upon you and your family yesterday. My wife tipped me off onto what was going on, and so I went across the street and happened to be near Representative Tilley’s office when you walked out of the office and into the elevator, down to the garage floor. I was standing on the sidewalk waving as you left in the SUV.
RUSH: Well, I wish I’d-a known. I would have rolled down the window and waved. So your wife tipped you off. Your wife works in the capitol?
CALLER: No, my wife works in Columbia, and she was listening to your St. Louis affiliate, and they had put out a little broadcast at the news break, so —
RUSH: Oh, yeah, that’s right. Because the Speaker withheld all news of it until one o’clock.
RUSH: Central time. And then they lifted the lid, not only on the bust, but on the whole story.
CALLER: I see. I was looking around for your bust out in the third floor rotunda but I didn’t see it yet —
RUSH: Well, it’s not there yet. There’s an internal battle being waged between the two parties in the state capitol as to whether it will be displayed in the rotunda. But trust me, it’s there. We’ve got pictures. And Drudge put a picture of me standing next to the bust on his page last night, and we’ve got it at RushLimbaugh.com as well. We tweeted it out and put it on our Facebook page. So, Brian, I appreciate the call. Thank you very much.
