Politicians Propose Statehouse Bust Honoring Limbaugh, Sparking Toilet Paper Protest

I know, I know– everyone’s sick of the whole Rush Limbaugh story. But I’d just like to add one last thing and then I’ll stop. Pinky promise.
Apparently Missouri lawmakers want to place a bust of Mr. Limbaugh in their statehouse, as an honor to their fellow Missourian (Missouri-ite?). That’s odd in itself– I’m not clear on how many famous or successful people hail from the state, but it’s kinda… sad that they couldn’t find anyone more deserving.
So there’s that issue. But then an even stranger thing happened. To protest Limbaugh’s bust being placed in the statehouse, members of the National Organization for Women decided to send lawmakers packages filled with hundreds of rolls of toilet paper. You know, to encourage lawmakers to “flush Rush” and reconsider their decision.
While I appreciate the whole rhyme thing and totally get that each person has their own way of sticking it to the man, I still can’t understand why someone would waste so much toilet paper for the endeavor. Unless it was the cheap 1-ply kind. In that case, I totally understand wanting to get rid of it.
