Personally, I think that this is a huge argument for rehab, but maybe Siri is really just out to get Rush. The Blaze (you've been warned) has the story:

On his radio show Tuesday, Limbaugh told the incredible, creepy, and funny story of how his phone recently started talking to him about Obama, wind power, and even the president’s “minions.”

Here’s how it happened.

When Limbaugh hit the microphone icon, which either begins or ends an action with Siri, he heard the three iconic beeps — but nothing happened. He continued to trying to establish a connection, at one point reciting the text response he was hoping to send to his wife Kathryn.

What he got back in return when the device began to work was nothing like what he claims to have said. What he saw on the screen was “Obama’s minions are taking over and there is nothing you can do about it.”

Booga-booga-booga! Scary Siri is clearly an agent of Obama's minions. Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster that Rush wasn't driving when such a disturbing message was displayed.

Unsurprisingly, Rush did not get independent verification of his allegations, nor was he able to replicate such a dastardly message from Siri (which has been accused of a conservative bias before more sensible minds remembered it's a COMPUTER PROGRAM).
