Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh reminded his August 25 listeners that "we created this whole concept of a testicle lockbox in connection with Mrs. [Sen.

[laughter] Don't forget that testicle lockbox, folks. [laughter] Just 'cause we haven't talked about it in a while does not mean [laughter] that it's -- that it's been buried.
