While Republicans on
Capitol Hill appear to be adopting a wait-and-see approach with Supreme
Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh is
taking direct aim at President Obama's choice for the high court.

the way life turns out, and now he finds himself walking the dog and picking up
