Lest debate over the surge cause Congress to take its eye off the truly important things, Republican Senator Kit Bond of Missouri introduced S.247 yesterday. Its title:
A bill to designate the United States courthouse located at 555 Independence Street, Cape Girardeau, Missouri, as the "Rush Hudson Limbaugh, Sr. United States Courthouse".
Rush Limbaugh Courthouse?! Evidently Rush Jr--the one of reptilian radio fame--was born to a prominent Missouri lawyer who practiced until his death, at 104, in 1996. But still: the Rush Limbaugh Courthouse?! Please don't tell me Hannity's father was a lawyer, too.
