Rush Limbaugh was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians alongside such eminences as George Washington Carver, Jimmy Carter, and Harry Truman yesterday. Those of you who have been following this story may recall that it caused something of a stir.
Well, now you can watch Limbaugh’s speech accepting the honor. The Daily Rushbo has posted what appears to be a video shot on a smartphone of Limbaugh’s roughly 15-minute speech, given behind closed doors at the Missouri State House. Watch below if you’re curious:
Though the official speech ends about 10 minutes in, in classic Limbaugh fashion, the popular talk radio host can’t resist getting a dig in at those criticizing his induction, such as Missouri House Minority Leader Mike Talboy, a Democrat, who had called Limbaugh a “misogynistic talk show host.”
“The Speaker’s office has been under assault for wanting to do this,” Limbaugh thunders, before noting that the response was pitch perfect because the critics of his induction are “deranged.”
“Our friends on the other side of the aisle are deranged,” Limbaugh crows to laughter from the audience, before thanking the Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley for sticking up for him.
