The Clown-Show will not be publicized

Nothing denotes a greater honor than not letting anyone know about it — to avoid a scene.

Controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh made a surprise visit to the state Capitol on Monday to be inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians…The ceremony today was unusual in that it was not announced until 20 minutes before it was scheduled to begin and was not open to the public.

And please enjoy the damning of faint praise from the Republican behind it all, Speaker Steve Tilley.

“it’s not the ‘Hall of Universally Loved Missourians.'”

And without irony it should be noted Limbaugh’s induction was bookended by the other honorees, Dred Scott and the recently departed, and beloved, African-American baseball legend Buck O’Neil. Thereby denoting the only way they’d have been caught in the same room with Rush Limbaugh.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
