This Day in Failure: March 31

2009: A traveling billboard calling out conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh makes its debut in Palm Beach County, Florida (where the political commentator owns a home). The billboard features a silhouette of Limbaugh smoking a fat cigar, along with the tag line, “Americans Didn’t Vote for a Rush to Failure”—a reference to Limbaugh’s infamous statement: “I hope he [Barack Obama] fails.” 

1995: Latin pop star Selena is shot and killed by the president of her fan club.
