Radio shock jock Rush Limbaugh told his audience he's fed up with America's bad behavior.

The straw that broke the camel's back? The sequester, set to take effect next week, which will implement $85 billion in drastic and indiscriminate cuts across the federal budget.

"Here they come--sucking us in, roping us in, panic here, fear there, crisis, destruction, no meat inspection, no cops, no teachers, no firefighters, no air traffic control," he said. "I'm sorry, my days of getting roped into all of this are over. We have the media play along with all of this, the ruling class of both parties play along all of this -- it's insulting. I don't know how else to describe it!"

"For the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country," he said.

The feeling may be mutual, Rush.
