Rush Hudson Limbaugh, Sr. United States Courthouse
President Bush is busy doing the work of the people. On Wednesday afternoon, the White House press office forwarded reporters this nugget from the president's schedule:
STATEMENT BY THE PRESS SECRETARY
On Wednesday, March 21, 2007 the President signed into law:
H.R. 342, which designates the United States courthouse in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, as the Rush Hudson Limbaugh, Sr. United States Courthouse.
We know what you're thinking: the Rush Limbaugh? Not exactly, but close. The courthouse, located in Limbaugh's hometown, is actually being named after his grandfather, who was a pretty famous guy in his own right. Rush H. Limbaugh was a prominent civic leader and a onetime ambassador to India under President Eisenhower.
What in the world do you think Rush's grandfather would think of his grandsons career? An Ambassador to India under Ike? It would kill him again.
Do you think this courthouse will specialize?
Only drug and sex tourism cases?
