As a fellow Missourian, and a huge fan of all the Limbaugh boys (Rush, David, and Andy) ...great news from RushLimbaugh.com concerning the Senate appointment of his cousin Stephen to the Federal bench.
I don't know Stephen Limbaugh, Jr. but I share the excitement and pride of his family. (..interestingly, Judge Limbaugh looks like a carbon copy of his cousin and my friend David Limbaugh....funny how family genes work.)
(See the resemblance?)
|Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr. Confirmed by United States Senate|
|RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, please indulge me here as I interrupt today's excursion into broadcast excellence for a personal moment, one of great pride, joy, and happiness for all of the members of my family. This is audio from the Senate. After hearing arguments over the nomination of my cousin Stephen Limbaugh, Jr., to the federal bench, district judge, Eastern District of Missouri, this afternoon in Washington, after hearing the arguments, the clerk and Senator Jon Tester make this announcement.
TESTER: Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr., of Missouri to be United States district judge.
CLERK: The question now occurs on the Limbaugh nomination, all in favor say aye. Aye. Opposed, nay. The ayes appear to have it. The ayes do have it. The nomination is confirmed.
RUSH: We're all very proud of my cousin Steve. He's currently serving on the Missouri State Supreme Court, has been there for a while. He was just confirmed moments ago to the United States Federal District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, and we're just happy as we can be. Now, it sounded like nobody voted, and that's true, and when nobody votes for you, you get in. I'm just making this up. (laughing) Sorry, Steve, a little fun. We're just ecstatically proud. We got the note last night that this was going to be done by unanimous consent today, and I wanted to share this with everybody because we in the family are very, very proud of this.
