RUSH LIMBAUGH: I want to talk for a minute about these three people that have been missing for 10 years in Cleveland and found. I'll bet many of you thought, "There's nothing Rush can say about that." Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho! I have no idea. Nobody does yet. At least if somebody knows, I haven't been able to keep up with the story. It happened just before the show started, these three people discovered missing for 10 years staying in some malcontent's house or whatever.

I have no idea what the latest news is on this. I don't know it, if there's any more than that. But as it so happens, I happened last night to watch Hawaii 5-0 on CBS. Hawaii 5-0's premise last night was kidnapped girls - held until they were 18 and then let go or killed. Well, always killed, by couple doing it for the welfare benefits, just reprobate husband and wife. The husband, a lazy SOB, claiming he had a disability and couldn't work. They kidnapped young girls and kept them in shackles.

This was the premise. It's just a TV show, but I thought, "Well, this is fascinating." They kept them in shackles in a hidden room in their run-down house somewhere on Oahu. The 5-0 team was trying to find for the parents. One girl was missing for 12 years  -- found dead somewhere out in the hinterlands. The 5-0 team did whatever the show is. They tracked 'em down, they found out what it was, and the guy was simply kidnapping these girls to provide tax exemptions and qualification for welfare benefits so he didn't have to work.

And then when they were no longer useful at age 18, he killed 'em -- until, of course ,5-0 came along and saved the day. Now, I don't know what happened in Cleveland, but I couldn't help but make the connection. I mean, if everybody else in the low-information crowd's gonna use what happens on TV for reality, why can't I? So here it is. Three women missing nine-plus years found alive. All were teenagers when they disappeared. Does anybody know yet why? Has the story advanced yet?

(interruption)

Three brothers of their brothers or three brothers?

(interruption)

Three brothers, but not related to the three women, have been arrested in Cleveland, which-voted Obama. Not that that's got anything to do with anything.

(interruption)

One of who has the baby?

(interruption)

Double welfare benefits, if one of the women has a baby?

(interruption)

No, I don't know. I just wanted to tell you. It's fascinating to hear that the same thing happen last night on Hawaii 5-0 and I guarantee you people watching it on Hawaii 5-0 think, "It happened on TV. It is for real."
