“It’s not the Hall of Uni­ver­sally Loved Mis­souri­ans. It’s the Hall of Fa­mous Mis­souri­ans.”

And so goes the sim­ple ra­tio­nale of Mis­souri state Rep. Steve Til­ley, a Re­pub­li­can, who com­mis­sioned a pri­vately funded, sculp­tural bust of Rush Lim­baugh to stand in his state’s capi­tol ro­tunda with Harry Truman, Walt Dis­ney and base­ball great Stan Mu­sial, among other note­wor­thy na­tive Mis­souri­ans. Mr. Lim­baugh was born in Cape Gi­rardeau.

Sen. Claire Mccaskill, Mis­souri Demo­crat, is among those who have al­ready com­plained about Mr. Til­ley’s project.
