Rush Limbaugh Getting His Material From OTB?

As some of you may recall, on Wednesday evening, James Joyner marked the occasion of the State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao by awarding a Tweet Of The Day:

@pcam:  “The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner holds a State Dinner for a man who has the 2010 winner under House Arrest.”

That was posted at about 9:12pm on January 19th.

Thanks to a post over at Wizbang, my attention was drawn to how Rush opened his show on Wednesday, January 20th:

RUSH: The moral code, the moral compass of the State-Controlled Media is something to behold.  Now, some of you may not know the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner hosted a state dinner last night for Hu Jintao of China.  Hu Jintao is holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner in prison in China.  Not making it up.  The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner hosted a dinner for the guy holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner in prison,

Hey Rush, how about throwing some traffic our way if you’re gonna borrow the material?

(And yes, for the humor impaired, I am joking)

    Great minds think alike, er…………um…….

    Apparently Rush knows good stuff when he… uh… err… “borrows” it.

    Otherwise he wouldn’t use it…. but, I think “credit where credit is due” should have been observed.

    So, now you’re stalking me for material, huh?

    Well, turnabout is fair play, I guess. I’ve boosted from here (directly and indirectly) a couple of times…

    That’s rather rich…Rush Limbaugh, of all people, talking about anyone else’s moral code…I suppose next he’ll be lecturing others on their evil misuse of prescription drugs…
