By

A bust of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh was unveiled this afternoon in the Hall of Famous Missourians at the Missouri State Capitol. The event was closed to the public.

no public allowed into #RushBust ceremony, only legislators and GOP hopeful candidates.

This didn’t sit well with Planned Parenthood of Missouri, who attempted to get past state troopers and enter the building.

At least 40 state troopers here to "protect" Rush. I wish that abortion clinics could get this type of protection.

It wasn’t just Planned Parenthood who was angry about Limbaugh being honored:

I couldn't be more disgusted with the Missouri GOP if they dropped their pants and took a massive dump on the floor. Oh,wait… #RushBust

I wondered why Missouri gets a bad reputation for being bigoted against minorities and basically behind the times. And then #rushbust.

Some also took offense to Limbaugh’s being honored alongside Dred Scott:

Breaking News: #RushBust not in Capitol because it wouldn't ride with Dred Scott's

RT @sharkfu: Issue #4 Dred Scott lived with racists. Do y'all have to "honor" him with one too, #moleg? #rushbust #trifling

— Bridget (@buckfever) May 9, 2012

Nothing says #moleg totally doesn't respect Dred Scott like honoring Limbaugh's rancid racist self in the same year. #RushBust #trifling

You know. Because Rush = racist.

By the way, a nine-months-pregnant woman is with Planned Parenthood? How did she manage to slip through their cracks?
