Word is that Rush made this joke on the air today and has already responded to Huffpo’s request:
Just today, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh delivered a similar joke on air.
“My dogs have created more shovel-ready work than Obama has just this week alone,” Limbaugh said. “The new puppy. Honest to God. More shovel-ready work for me this week than Obama has created all two and a half years.”

“I guess I’ve become show prep for the GOP debates now, too,” Limbaugh told The Huffington Post in an email. Limbaugh said he thought he used the line yesterday, “but the days run together, so I’m not really sure.”
Limbaugh didn’t hear the joke live because he was traveling, but said he’s received many emails about it.
Here’s the joke which went over very well at the debate:
UPDATE: Thanks to RuBegonia, we have a side by side of Rush, then Gary telling the joke:
