(Newser) – This is bound to offend Rush Limbaugh's big-government sensibilities: Missouri has shelled out $1,100 in public money to buy a security camera to protect a bronze bust of the broadcaster, reports AP. The bust is parked among those of other Missouri luminaries in the state Capitol, but the House clerk has fielded so many threats and angry calls that he authorized the Limbaugh cam to ward off vandals.
