Conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh has been gone for nearly four months. As is the case with untold numbers of “Rushofiles” across Rush’s beloved “fruited plain,” it still “catches me by surprise” every once in a while — most often unexpectedly.

As has been the case throughout history, when we lose powerful figures whose impact on the cause he or she stood and fought for was immeasurable, Rush’s legacy will live on among true conservatives — many of whom became conservatives precisely because they listened to Rush, understood what he meant, and began doing their part to advance conservatism against the left and all others who seek to destroy it.

In Missouri, conservative legislators wanted to honor Rush, one of the state’s most distinguished citizens and an icon to an entire generation of conservatives. But back-stabbing establishment politicians cut a deal with
