Rush Limbaugh Taken to Hospital with Chest Pains UPDATED
— Dave in Texas

Serious condition. He was vacationing in Hawaii, report says paramedics responded to a call at 2:41pm local time, which would have been, 3 hours ago Central I think.

He'll Probably Be Fine [ace]: I don't know anything about this, obviously, but anyone with heart pains is going to be in "serious condition," so while heart pains are a danger signal, to be sure, it's probably not the case that he's in grave danger of dying.

The fact they caught this early, and got him to the hospital, is a good sign. A heart attack tends to kill by surprise.

[Dave]: yeah, anyone taken to a hospital with chest pains is going to be listed as "serious". We kinda want them to treat it that way, here in the Pre-Obamacare" health care days.

Morning Update [Dave]: Resting comfortably, according to his website. Meanwhile the lefty blog swamp is full of heartache since he didn't DIAF.

There are a lot of people I don't like. I can manage to not like them without wishing them a painful death. It's not all that difficult, believe me, I'm not overloaded with classy or nothin. Just a smidge.

A Thought [Slublog] - This has been mentioned in the comments, and has been forwarded quite a few times on Twitter:

"The people calling for Rush Limbaugh to die are the same people who ask to control your healthcare."
Quite a few of the comments on the #Rush hashtag are toxic. It's amazing to me how people can hate someone they've never met so vehemently simply because he communicates ideas with which they disagree.

Nurturing such hatred has got to be corrosive for the soul.

MSNBC fuckers just had to go over his painkiller problem.

Posted by: Mark at December 30, 2009 05:21 PM (63Cb8)

8 Of course the MSNBC article has to highlight his drug addiction as his main thing, not that he's the number one talk show host in America and has tons of accolades.

9 Thoughts and prayers Rush.  Get better.

10 I'm just back from being away for a few days and just saw this.  I hope he'll be ok.  Prayers for a speedy recovery, Rush!

11 @7 

I just saw an online article somewhere on this too...mentioned the addiction to painkillers.  Bastards.

Heartfelt prayers, Mr. Limbaugh.

15 Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery, Rush. 

And, yes, the AP did not disappoint in their article.  I'm sure the other "drive-bys" will be equally obnoxious.  Imagine the jealousy.  It must really suck to be them.

Posted by: marine43 at December 30, 2009 05:24 PM (zGYd5)

17 Hope he's all right. Very little information in the online article, apart from stuff calculated to run him down. What concerns me most is his condition was described as "serious." However, there's no information about why that should be the case.

Posted by: AnthonyR at December 30, 2009 05:25 PM (9IttK)

18 Praying for Rush to pull through. I started listening to Rush when I was 12 years old. I can thank him for my conservative beliefs. My liberal family isn't so happy about it.

Posted by: Ginger at December 30, 2009 05:25 PM (/XmR+)

19 If Rush's illness has a 'cause' I would imagine it's his dramatic weight loss. 

Screw MSNBC and the half-dozen people who like to watch it.

24 I think they always give out the condition as "serious"if it involved possible heart attack.Hope it's nothing because we need Rush.

25 We really need Rush, I pray he makes it. Hopefully it's not as serious as initial reports indicate.

30 In all seriousness, I was afraid of this: the guy's been just too damn wound up on the radio. For good cause, to be sure, but I hope his voice is not silenced just when the nation needs it the most. Be Well, Rush!

31 Let me say here and now, Olbermann or some of the other douchebags at MSNBC better not think of making snarky remarks about Rush like when he suffered his hearing loss, Gentlemen, the only thing standing between you and the pitchforks is your ability to keep your dumb liberal traps shut.

In completely unrelated news, Prez Obama eluded his SS men at about 1:30pm local time. He was found at 2:45 less than a block from Mr Limbaugh's residence holding a large sing that said "Boo!" on it.

The POTUS is quoted as saying "I never went near that window"

(really, I hope Rush is OK)

Posted by: 5Cats at December 30, 2009 05:31 PM (O5yP8)

38 His lifestyle is not one that would have prevented this. Mostly the weight gain and loss is a toughy. His job is pretty stressful tool given his passion for what he does and the level he operates. If that waste of skin Letterman can get through something like this, perhaps Rush will simple get honed out and be better than EVAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: rightzilla at December 30, 2009 05:32 PM (zWsnx)

39 Chest pains = heart attack in my head.

He's had a problem with his weight, and I bet his diet ain't lo-fat. A heart attack sounds likely.

shit i knew that new diet he was on was bad news. no one loses 90 pounds in a couple of months without exercising. he said it was some kind of liquid diet(and no i don't mean alcohol)

Posted by: Ben at December 30, 2009 05:36 PM (bftbi)

57 If Rush's illness has a 'cause' I would imagine it's his dramatic weight loss.

I was wondering about that.  Not the amount as much as the speed...

All irrelevant, of course.  I hope he's OK.  When I was in HS, my dad would tape his shows on cassettes and we'd listen to them on the weekends doing repairs and remodeling and stuff.  He's like an uncle.  My cat sent Punkin a Christmas card a few years ago...

I can't beleive nobody has commented on the coincidence that Rush and Obama are both in Hawaii.  It's seems like the black helicopter wet dream.

Posted by: jewells at December 30, 2009 05:37 PM (lv7H+)

61 Well, the thing with heart stuff is that 'healthy' people drop dead of heart attacks all the time. 

Personally, I think he lost too much weight too quickly, but I assume with his wherewithall he has top doctors guiding him on his diet program.

It was the bad karma projected from Michelle's fat ass that caused Rush to infark.  A little Roto Rooter, two days bed rest, and a couple of Samoan Hooter girls for entertainment and Rush will be fit for battle once again.

72 he said it was some kind of liquid diet(and no i don't mean alcohol)

Oh - that doesn't sound good at all.  It's hard to imagine an ethical doctor sanctioning that sort of thing.  It's not like Rush was morbidly obese.  He should have lost it slowly. 

But whatever the cause, I hope god doesn't take him from us yet.  We really need him.

i've brought this up many times. i used to check his site all the time, but i've moved it out of my rotation. He doesn't update it very much, not enough to have a 15 second reload on the page.

its gone downhill since breitbart left. i don't think he even checks it after 5 pm or on weekends.

The weight loss program to which Limbaugh subscribed was the Florida based Quick Weight Loss program.  I have been on this program and lost 40 pounds without a problem.  It is not a liquid program, but controlls the amount of food consumed by weight, with a strong mixture of meats, chicken, vegtables, etc., eating 5 times daily. 

Posted by: Fish at December 30, 2009 05:43 PM (W3vrv)

I hope he gets better and takes three months off. Let Mark Steyn fill in.

I was tempted to comment on Rush over the last couple of months but I didn't think anybody would care. Obama is definitely stressing him out big time. Rush hardly takes any calls anymore, and when he does he generally cuts the caller off after two sentences so he can expound on something he already spent 45 minutes talking about. His whole monologue used to be about 45 minutes long and now it normally lasts nearly two hours. I like what he has to say but when you present an argument it's best to buttress from three or four or maybe five positions. But as of late, Rush won't stop until he hits around a dozen, most of which are repetitive/redundant. I've listened to him for about 14 years and in my opinion his show has suffered a lot in the last few months.

I hope he gets his health back, takes a good long rest and learns how to unwind a bit..

117 I agree with keeping Mark Steyn as fill in. I really love Steyn and the way he talks. I started listening to Rush after 9/11, I think. At least, I don't have any earlier memory of listening to him, although I'm sure I did. If anyone is the leader of the conservatives, it's Rush, even if he doesn't want that title.

127 No one wants to see a brother die. If it happens, there is always unit cohesion that keeps the tip of the spear fighting as one. Rush never told me what to think. As a matter of fact I have always considered myself way ahead of his curve. There is nothing that anyone can do prayer wise or emotional wise that can help his body overcome his ridiculous mantra of exercise sucks. Rush made his bed and now he is going to lay in it. With or without Limbaugh, I will stand true to my conservative upbringing, and I am completely capable of living my life without being a ditto head.

145 Leatherneck, 

This isn't about whether you can continue on "without Rush."  Rush is a HUGE force in getting the conservative message out.  We conservatives need him, not to reaffirm what we already know, but more importantly, who he can reach...and teach...which he does supremely.  I think it's bogus to lay his medical condition on "made his bed, now he has to lie in it crap."  ANYONE can have heart problems with or without exercise being a part of it.  That was kinda cruel of you, dude.

169 I remember when, about 15 years ago, some liberal bitched me out for pointing out the problems with her position on something, and she spat the worst insult she could think of at me: "I bet you listen to Rush Limbaugh!" I didn't. At the time I didn't even know who he was--I was getting my business off the ground and had no time for anything else (I didn't even have a TV). But she caught my attention and I listened to his show the next day. I couldn't believe it--there was someone else out there who thought like me! El Rushbo got me back into politics, like it or not. (I might add I was living in San Francisco, and had been for years, so I had been feeling like some sort of mutant freak for having conservative views.) I sure as hell hope he gets his heart patched up and is around for a long time yet.

180 I know people are upset and worried, but I really think "serious condition" is what you are automatically the moment you have chest pains. It does not indicate that this is a serious situation *for people with chest pains,* that is, not an especially serious case of that. Any problem with the heart is "serious." The fact that he survived the initial pain and was taken to the hospital indicates a good chance of good recovery. As you probably all know, when it comes to heart attacks, it's the first one that usually kills you, when it comes all at once and without warning.

They'll stent him and he'll be OK.  Really.  Back in the '70's when my father had a series of bypass surgeries, I had a part-time job in the Dietary Dept.  of that hospital, (I was in high school then) and I remember freezing every time they called "Code Blue" over the intercom and praying that I wouldn't hear my dad's room number announced.  Stenting and bypasses were very dangerous in those days and yet the tough old bird pulled through them all, despite having been a 3 pack a day smoker for many years.

Nowadays, the situation is much different.  Stenting is almost a routine surgery and I'm sure Rush is in very good hands.  He'll be fine. He just needs to take it easy for awhile and start exercising.  And yeah, giving up the cigars is a good idea.

No need to see the trash the left is vomiting up - I just showered and don't want to have to do it again.  The  vultures were overjoyed when Cheney had his ticker problems.

Difference is you would hold your tongue. i was talking to some libs one night who referred to Bush as Shrub. One snarled SOMEONE NEEDS TO PUT A BULLET IN HIM. I said.....really. She snarled YES. I MEAN IT. I told her that I really disliked Clinton. But never in my life have I wished for an American president to be killed. What separates us from the Banana Republics is elections, not coups.

Not necessarily.

My Dad had heart problems for years. His first one (maybe even two) heart attacks were "silent." Didn't know he even had them.  He had quite a few after that that obviously he did know about.

All that being said, modern technology is great. Rush could be fixed up with an angioplasty in a few days. Who knows, they could even fly a doctor in for him.

Wow, I was so sad to hear this news, and my first thought was "Rush can't die, we need him right now!"  Like WTR, I started listening to Rush after 9/11.  I didn't like him at first (thought he was full of himself, but then I realized it was all tongue in cheek).  Now I listen to him whenever I can (Mark Steyn is my favorite fill in host, by far!)

That being said, the one thing that worries me the most about Rush is that he is receiving health care in Hawaii--which is basically not the best, even in Oahu.  I really wish he was stateside.  The best cardiac hospitals (like Cleveland Clinic) would take the best care of  him.  Health care in Hawaii isn't quite third world, but it's not in the same league as here.  The fact that this happened while he's in Honolulu just makes my heart sink.

235 Take heart, everyone. My hubby had a heart attack last year, and he actually ignored his chest pain for the better part of a week before going to the doctor. Once he hit the doctor's office, he was in the ER within minutes, being care-flighted to another hospital soon after, and had a stent put in (one artery 100% blocked) within another hour. He has been religious about his diet and exercise for years, but his family history was against him. He's doing fine now, and as others have mentioned, the fact that Rush didn't suddenly drop dead is a huge positive. According to the cardiologist, that's the first sign of a heart attack for most people. I'm praying hard, but I have a gut feeling Rush is gonna be fine.

I can't believe how many other morons spent Christmas at the hospital with their dads. For about three years straight me and my brother spent each Thanksgiving and Christmas at the ER.

Nobody should let the vicious comments about Rush elsewhere bother them one bit.

All the disgusting comments the left is robo-posting all around the web about him right now just redounds against their ideology - and particularly against their ambition at the moment to institute the government takeover of medicine.

Normal, undecided people read that hateful stuff and ask themselves: These leftists are the  allegedly 'compassionate' people who want to take control over everybody else's health care? THESE are the people who want to usurp my right to decide whether I & my parents & my kids get to receive treatment or not?

I'm telling ya, it was hearing exactly that kind of heartless stuff from the left that turned me from a young skull-full-o-mush lib into a dittohead back in the day.

And if nationalized health care had been on the table back then,  no doubt that transformation would have happened MUCH faster.

Shortly before Christmas my one cat started acting really weird and I thought he might be seriously ill and so I took him to the vet. Turned out the problem was that he had a sudden flea infestation and he was allergic to flea bites. He got a shot and some flea killer medicine and is now fine.

guitar man (1000+ posts)

I actually laughed when I read this comment because the goober who posted it so perfectly betrays his childish nincompoopery.

Note how he believes that withholding his compassionate thoughts deprives Rush Limbaugh of something.

Rush doesn't deserve his compassion, he insists.

Deserve?

Whatever does that mean? Does he believe that the merely thinking "compassionate" thoughts benefits the object of his compassion? And that withholding them harms the object of his non-compassion?

Clearly he does.

Which is why the comment is so hilarious. Leftists never require themselves to do anything. Simply holding the proper compassionate thoughts is enough, you see, and worthy of self-praise in all cases.

Sacrificing for the good of others is completely unnecessary. It's the right thoughts that count. Well, not even that, really. It's the expression of the right thoughts that earn you your merit badge in Leftyland.

Since it is stated that he's in "serious" not "critical" is a good news but not out of the woods. Not by a long shot.
Being in a hospital ICCU unit is not a guarantee you won't take a turn for the worst. Worst case scenario the obvious. Shitty scenario heart damage which forces him to retire early.
I'm hoping for a speedy recovery.
Oh, he'll get the lecture to give up cigars.

313 Warden,

Exactly.  I get the same thing in face-to-face conversations with liberals, who say all these things Rush supposedly says but they've never listened to him, but instead just read what other lefties have said or written about him.  Of course, those lefties, if they've even heard Rush's show, usually make quotes and/or the leave out the context in which Rush made his remarks (e.g., non-serious sarcasm or humor).

I haven't listened to Rush regularly for years due to my schedule, but I still catch him once in awhile and have been a subscriber to The Limbaugh Letter since the first issue.  The things they claim he says are completely made up.  Then again, to the Left, conservatism should be outlawed so how can we expect a rational rebuttal from the Left to Rush and the substance of his arguments.

In addition to being a compassionate person loved by those that know him personally, Rush is so important to the conservative movement and the political discourse in this country.  I wish him well and my thoughts and prayers are with him tonight.

"Fuck that motherfucker, he can eat shit and die as far as I'm concerned, I can't be a phony and try to fake compassion for an overpriveliged POS who has done nothing but use his good fortune to take pot shots at the poor and underpriveleged in this country and their advocates.

Wouldn't you love to take a peek at Guitar Man's tax return, and see just how much of his own skin he's put into the game of "advocating" for the underprivileged?   If he's like most libtards, the sum total of his annual charitable contributions equals a few worn-out message t-shirts from the '70s, a handful of change tossed into the Salvation Army kettle, and a shitload of patronizingly compassionate thoughts.

But then, libtards don't actually need to do anything tangible for the underprivileged.  They just have to say the right things and support any measure that requires the wealth of other people to be redistributed by the government to earn the esteem of their evolved lefty buddies.  That's what's so great about being a compassionate libtard; why, it's practically free!

319 Thanks, HeatherRadish.  "guitar man" is the typical Lefty that spends so much time telling everyone how compassionate he is and how conservatives lack that compassion, but then he can't actually bring himself to act compassionate when the circumstances require it.  He's a freakin' phony, like many on the Left -- especially those that are the most vocal.

As for the financial sacrifices of Lefties, Cicero hit the nail right on the head in #317.  They're always compassionate spending taxpayers money, never much of their own.  Good examples were the small amounts given to charity for many years by John Kerry and Al Gore, two of the biggest phonies that exist inside or outside of politics.

333 One of the saddest things about contemporary politics in the United States is that about 60% of the public has been conditioned to recoil in horror if you mention that you listen to, and like, Rush Limbaugh.

Most of these people have never listened to his show, not even once. But they have been told, over and over again, for the last 20+ years, by the mass media, that he is a horrible, vile monster, and that his fans are nothing but mindless, racist drones.

It was "The Big Lie." Nothing more and nothing less. But it was repeated about 47 billion times, and the know-nothings believed it.

Which is why I was horrified when he came back and acted like the bigot hordes wished for him to get the cancer and die. Reminded me just how twisted inside these people are.

Posted by: Boots at December 30, 2009 09:02 PM (06JTY)

352 Another thing, Rush lately has been pounding on listeners to be the 'go to person' for information on various topics.  Telling everybody to get educated so you can give accurate background information to your friends, relatives, coworkers, anybody in earshot.  I wonder if lately he hasn't been feeling well, a commenter above mentioned that Rush has talked about neck or arm pain while on the air.  Perhaps he could feel he might be off the air for a time?

363 Don't listen often, was in the car, heard him say that he was in enormous pain but could not take pain killers.  He said he was doing his program, the whole program, standing up since it was too painful to sit.  Said he had a compressed vertebrae in his neck and he didn't want surgery cause it could affect his voice box.  Felt so bad for the man.

Rush, get well soon.

Now:

Pelosi is in Hawaii, too.

I thought global warming was so bad that the economy must be sacrificed to appease the weather gods and yet both Pelosi and Obama are off to Hawaii to warm up.  Dissonance anyone?

367 Don't think for a second that it is a coincidence that this happened in Hawaii. Obama is behind this! This is the Chicago Way. Obama had someone try to knock off Rush. You know it! Or maybe he just came down with a case of Cheesburger-itis. You can't be that obese for that long without eventually suffering the inevitable effects.

370 373 - Yes, I've seen clips of him on the Ditto-cam within the past month. He is clearly obese. He loses weight every now and then gains it all back. He is clearly obese. He's likely not morbidly obese at the moment, but definitely obese. Also, this could be the price he's paying for being a drug addict. Abusing drugs takes quite a toll on the body. He's paying for his choices. Looks like it is personal responsibility time for Rush.

Dear Dr. Sally Ann,

Thanks for the free diagnosis.  I've been waiting for someone of your obvious intellectual heft to tell me what's what.  And the concern evident in your comments really touches me.

Since you're in a diagnosing mood, would you like to tell us all what's up with Pres. Purplelips?  I'm sure you can trace that back to some aspect of his lifestyle.  Right?  Or that ashy look on Reid?  Daily enemas?  Or Pelosis's perptually shocked expression.  Vibrating butt plug set to 11?  Or your consistent vapidity?  One of the hundeds of tequila worms you've ingested made a wrong turn and wound up in your brain?

Come on Doc, it's personal responsibility time.  Dish ,Dance, you fucking nitwit.

Hang in there, Rush.  Dr. Sally Ann would be lost without you.

Wanna know how serious Barky and crew are about the nearly successful attempt to murder 300 people on a plane and possibly many, many more on the ground?

They were so concerned that they dedicated the resources of the WH counsel's office to look to see if there were any lapses in communication within the intelligence community during the Bush admin post 9-11 that could have allowed a serious incident to occur.

From the article:

.. senior Obama White House aides, including chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod and new White House counsel Robert Bauer, ordered staff to begin researching similar breakdowns -- if any -- from the Bush Administration.

"The idea was that we'd show that the Bush Administration had had far worse missteps than we ever could," says a staffer in the counsel's office. "We were told that classified material involving anything related to al Qaeda operating in Yemen or Nigeria was fair game and that we'd declassify it if necessary."

Fuck you Barky

I would put nothing past O's people and O.  Keep track of the murders that surround this group already....Clinton and O are a lethal duo.

Rush will rise up stronger and more determined than evah after having read his obits by the left.  Living well is the best revenge.  Revenge is best served up cold....and any other cliche you can think of, please add.

Why would Palin, Rush, anybody go where O is frolicking with his groupies...Rush and Palin never do this to us again....Stay as far away from O and the gang as possible.

Here's more about how serious Barky and crew are about getting to the bottom of the intelligence failures that led to the near successful terror attack on Flight 253

Barky waived ethics rules and appointed the private contractor that manages the intelligence databases to lead the review.

403 The "personal responsibility for your life" comments from the left are priceless, though.  When they borrow $100k to get a gay studies degree then end up struggling to repay the loans while working at Olive Garden, the government needs to act.  When they have six kids with seven different absent/jailed daddies, the government needs to act.  When AIDS makes it impossible for them to hold down a job after years of barebacking around Provincetown, the government needs to act.  Etc, etc. 

But you eat a few steaks or have a few cigars, and you need to take responsibility for your own "bad choices", dammit!

Funny the comments on the Washington Post article on this are far worse. Some of them just say "please please please please oh god please!".

BTW why the fuck do they all call him "divisive" in the same breath as they praise Keith Olberman or say how much they hate the guy? Is it in their mind everyone would agree with liberals if we didn't have "divisive" people putting those divisive thoughts into everyones head?

FAST WEIGHT LOSS THE PROBLEM

I am not surprised that Rush had issues with his health. He recently lost over 60 pounds in a fast manner by dieting. This is not good and weakens your system considerably. Like Rush I am a big guy (a few years younger) and also "yo yo" with my wieght but have tried to get off the weight with exersize.

When he was telling his audience  earlier on in the year about his very rapid weight loss I got worried and those worries seem to have been real. Fast dieting like that weakens the muscles of the heart and with his fast paced lifestyle it placed too much stress on that organ.

Rush now has to recuperate and give his heart the time to work its way back. Slow down the pace and later on get into a regular exersize regime.

Rush will come back BETTER THAN EVER. He will be more focused as he has gotten an "intimation of mortality" and will realize he has to play his part in the saving of America and the western world as we know it.

The liberal left is salivating at the thought of 2010 without Rush and are clogging the airwaves and the internet with  their intolerant hate and dumbed down thoughts. Don't worry - Nov 2010 is coming and they will be slaughtered at the polls and Rush will be there to help their political demise.

Good luck big guy !!

That is because they are hypocritical bastards who wish death upon people they disagree with. Look at history when they are given full power. What do they do? They kill and dehumanize people that are not "down with the program". Also IMHO that is why they refer to him as "divisive", like people that disagree with the left woudln't if only we didn't have such divisive figures around preaching "hate". So anyones disagreement is not legitimate no no, just hatred and division. Oh if only "divisive" figures, ie anyone that disagrees, can be gotten rid of we would be in utopia on earth!

The only thing missing is cries of "Kill the witch!" or "Burn the heretic". They are what they supposedly hate.

...but, on the other hand, they shouldn't be sanctified. .....there was an HBO mini-series called Angels in America..it's.like these folks have been elevated to some sort of holy or spiritual status because they've contracted a disease, in most part, thru unnatural and dangerous sexual practices

I know, I know there are others ways of contracting it, but man-on-man anal sex is the leading cause of HIV transmission.

HIV/AIDS theoretically can be eliminated completely...just using a fucking rubber would play a major part..

Otherwise, she would know that Rush, having lost a lot of weight, is now quite trim. She's a seminar commenter. I'm sure she has no problem with Obama's past drug use, which as far as I know, he hasn't expressed regret about, unlike Rush, who acknowledges that it was a big problem and doesn't hide from it. And what about Obama's cigarrette habbit? I'm sure it's healthier than everything Rush does. Uhuh. Not to mention that Obama's drug use was purely recreational, while Rush got hooked to pain medication he had started taking because he was actually in pain. Idiot.

Yeah I have spent some part of this morning reading thru comments on mainstream sites like Politico and the WaPo. Truly vile shit, blatant contradictions, and wishing for his death in the same sentence they call him hatefilled and divisive. Pointing out his past addiction while those are the same people who would excuse Obama's and want to legalize drugs. I view reading those comments, and their sheer number, as a valuable lesson. We need to learn who we are dealing with, not the bullshit slogans they chant at rallies and the crap that gets sugarcoated and thrown on TV to represent "progressives". We need to know who they really are, what they want for us, and most importantly be able to admit it to ourselves in order to move on.

437 Blazer, please don't think I'm picking on you, but this constant comparison of Rush to Ted Kennedy is really disturbing me.

Kennedy killed a woman he was fucking while his wife was pregnant and colluded with the Soviet Union to undermine Reagan.  Admittedly, Rush has gotten around a bit, but he never tried to gang-rape a waitress with Chris Dodd.  Kennedy lived large on his Daddy's (ill-gotten, don't forget) money, and Rush built his empire with his own work and talent.  Kennedy was a lifelong alcoholic; Rush was able to admit and overcome his pain-killer addiction (aside: all the articles this week fellating Brett Favre for making the ProBowl never mention HIS painkiller addiction...).

Finally, and most importantly, Rush hasn't spent years advocating legislation that will prevent you, I, or the lefty assholes celebrating last night from receiving the same high-quality care he and Kennedy received; that was one of Kennedy's signature beliefs.

He didn't kill her he just left her to drown slowly while clawing at the interior of the car until her fingernails bled. Yeah there is a huge difference between him and Rush because it has nothing to do with politics.  You are supposed to wish ill of people that would do such things. Fuck tolerance to any piece of shit that does that, it is not about political affiliation at all.

450 cool czeck === Ted was a murderer. He sketed. Should have faced the death penalty for what he did. But even still, I never WISHED he would suffer a death. Just that the system would have worked and he would have paid for his crime, I am not sad he is gone but I did not wish his demise. Life starts and ends. Libs want death to all the right and likely rejoice each time one passes.

Cavenaugh -- I am fat. Never abused drugs. Drink a bit much from time to time. You wish me dead to? Would love to see what you eat every day. Your hatefulness alone likely produces enough cortisol to do you damage. Obama was a drug abuser who smokes and eats a lot of waffles........would you be advocating his death if he fell ill for the same reasons you are advocating Rush's? Let me answer that for you. No. You wish Rush dead for one reason....he does not agree with you.

I think we need to learn, by we I mean myself and others, what we truly face here in this country calling itself "progressive". Just imagine yourself, if you had a newsletter or something with your political opinions in it. These same people would wish death on you. They would use government positions to expose your court records and child payment schedule. They would lie about you to their friends. Why not be aware of that fact?

463 Libtards hate Rush because they believe that we are like them, susceptible to a cult of personality. Blindly following an idol and parroting what they say and think. An example would be the election of Zero, a culture of personality, not philosophy, thought, morality, or personal character, or common conviction. Zero has no qualification to lead this country other than being black and reading a good speech. They do not understand that Rush is a reflection of conservative thought, not a fabricator. A good example is the cult of syncopaths following Charles Johnson around, parroting whatever drivel oozes from his fetid orifice. All of the conservatives were purged or left within a couple of months. Those that remain are hollow shells with no philosophical rudder of their own, so they latch onto the loony lizard and hold on for lack of a better idea. Conservatism would go on, whether Rush is around or not.

Because their political leanings take the place of religion, and they are fervent believers in Utopianism.  Anyone who gets in their way are getting in the way of the establishment of their Utopia--  and, therefore, are an ultimate enemy to be destroyed by any means neccessary.  I mean, what kind of person stands in the way of Utopia?  Certainly not a human being worth worrying about.

I'm with Mr.Rum and Sodomy ...it's pretty apparent what most "liberals" (I really wish that word would not be abused so) want for people who do not conform to their views of the world (to the letter) -- if you hadn't figured it out after reading some of their comments concerning the "poor, poor terrorists misunderstood people of religion", their comments in defense of partial birth abortion biological freedom for women (still trying to understand how that one makes sense), their comments in defense of death panels/healthcare rationing comprehensive healthcare, their comments in defense of impoverishing the world and leaving many to starve green initiatives for the planet, or any of the other moral pretzels they configure or name calling which they regularly subscribe to, then you're a more patient and forgiving person than myself (to be kind in my judgements).

 

I believe that many are well meaning sheep who have lost the ability to think for themselves and/or are so desperate for approval and belonging that they would sell their souls and have (these are the ones that usually don't go too much over the line into vulgarity, but are led right up to it which is dangerous and sad); or they have some very serious emotional/psychological conflicts at work with in them and definitely need some sort of therapy...or they are just plain evil, twisted, miserable little Gollums who hate the world, everything in it, and most of all themselves.  There is only one way to deal with such people: try to not let them cloud your life too greatly...and try to keep the damage they can cause to a minimum.

Fellow morons, get the lesson: Leftists want to control speech, because actual discussion of their ideas ends in discreditation.

That's why they avoid debate whenever possible ("The science is settled.").

Limbaugh wields nothing but the power of speech. No armies, no weapons, no authority -- just speech.

To the ever-vulnerable-to-ideas Left, he is as dangerous as troops massed on the border or, for that matter, a rabid dog. They cannot reckon with him.

That's why they wish him death. They want all their enemies to die, metaphorically speaking, or be exiled, because that's the only way they can win.

I think there's a kind of parallel to this somewhere in the New Testament. I'll have to look that up.

489 As a former Broadcast Professional, I can't tell you in strong enough terms how Rush changed the industry. Not only did he save AM radio, he brought to the fore the talk radio format. Before Rush came along, you'd hear talk shows basically on the weekends at night. Late at night. REAL late at night. Now there are thousands of stations that are of the talk format. This guy is truly a pioneer at what he does. Hannity, Beck and countless other talkers, as well as every American, should thank The Almighty for Rush Limbaugh, whether you agree with him or not. Americans are more informed about their country thanks to a man from Cape Girardeau, Missouri. God bless and we'll see ya kickin Liberal ass soon, El Rushbo.

Those are the same syntheic opiod. And if you've never struggled with opiod addiction or went thru the hellacious withdrawals, then do not judge. I have spent many days suffering through them, and it feels a lot like dying. You dont, you just wished you would.

I have met Rush personally twice. He has been great to me and my family, still sends my dad, a cochlear pioneer, personal cards for his b'day. He has even sent gifts over the yrs. A nicer man you could not hope to meet.

I recall the left heaping loads of scorn and vitriol on Charleton Heston when he passed. Why? Because he was a champion of our 2nd amendment rights. Nevermind the fact that he walked side by side with Martin Luther King a card carrying Republican during the civil rights march on Washington while Democrats like Robert Byrd, Bull Connor and George Wallace were fighting tooth and nail to deny them their civil liberties.

Liberals should take a moment to realize and reflect on the fact that along with our men and women in uniform, they are free to expouse the garbage they do because of men like Rush Limbaugh, not in spite of them. Rush would be the last person earth who would want to see them shut up, unlike his progressive counterparts who would very much love to see us denied our first amendment rights.

499 Limbaugh wields nothing but the power of speech. No armies, no weapons, no authority -- just speech.

That's a great point. Think about this for a moment - Rush Limbaugh has no power to tax, control, or threaten the safety and well-being of The Left.

He can't make laws telling them what they can and can't do. He can't seize their assets. He can't burden them with regulations and paperwork. He can't fuck up their country's economy.

All he does is talk for 3 hours a day and they go batshit crazy over it.

Imagine that. Rush Limbaugh, sitting behind a microphone and expressing opinions is ruining their carefully planned Utopia.

They have Congress and the Presidency. They have control of the media, our schools, and Hollywood. They're entrenched in our governmental bureaucracy.

And yet ... just one guy challenging their ideology is too much for them to handle. He must be silenced. They wish him dead.

514 I don't know about the rest of you but this impotent lefty hatred is ball-dipping good.  You see, they just don't get it.  The elephant is in the room, munching on their house plants, smashing their coffee table and shitting on the rug but they don't see it.

Rush (and I hope he recovers speedily) is not important anymore.

He's broken the ground: he's made the talk show a fixture of daily radio.  When he showed that a conservative radio personality could draw an hold an audience (thereby showing that there is money to be made) he broke the dam.  Of course, Ronald Regan made this possible with his ending of the fairness doctrine.  What happened when the people got a taste of this freedom of speech?  Wait, no.  Not freedom of speech but freedom to listen.  What happened when we got the freedom to listen?

When we first heard this, we rejoiced in it.  We were bombarded daily in the mainstream news, and by lefty professors in college and by the Hollywood left that sneered at our love of country, our patriotism, and that we valued Western ideals.  Suddenly we knew that there were others like us and that we were many.

That is why the Left hates him, he's made us aware that we are many.  If he were to fall today, another would take his place.  If they were to bring back the fairness doctrine, we'd find away around it.  Their propaganda fails more than it succeeds.  Rush just showed them how powerless they really are.

And for that they hate him and their hate is impotent.

(and I've just gotta' dip my balls in that...)

516 the party of peace, that supports the religion of pieces mind you, are giddy with the hopes of Rush's early demise. if you think about it it's pretty sick. i am sure that there were jerks out there spewing nasty stuff about ted kennedy, so what can we expect? but are there fake quotes floating around about ted kennedy? nope. that because conservatives don't make engage in smear campaigns. but maybe it's time they at least FOUGHT BACK! what freaks me out is how the fabricated quotes are again being used as fodder for attacks. why hasn't rush sued these people? why hasn't he demanded retractions from the media outlets that have continued to perpetuate these lies? some came from huberman's book, 101 people who are screwing up american, and he can't even provide any sources for them. hufpo even pulled these quotes from his article a few months back. rush really needs to sue some people. conservatives in general refuse to stand up for themselves and wrongly think that by ignoring the lies it will all just go away. in the meantime it destroys your name, your character, and in the case of the GOP, the brand. sorry, the truth does not speak for itself; the truth needs an advocate.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} p {mso-margin-top-alt:auto; margin-right:0in; mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto; margin-left:0in; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} -->

517 Kos gets to say toxic things about Limbaugh today, and someday soon I get to make similar comments about Carter.  Works for me.

Posted by: John Galt at December 31, 2009 07:34 AM (Ylv1H)

518 People are saying that this presidency is "jimmy carter, take 2" only worse, much worse cause apparently carter couldn't implement half of what he wanted cause of "checks and balances".

Always wonder why there is so much hatred on the dem/lib/left side of the spectrum.  They virtually manufacture independents from their vitriol.  Wonder why their mamas never taught them the golden rule?   Wonder why they don't see that you "get back what you give" and "what goes around comes around"?  These people should be so happy and thrilled that they are getting everything they ever wanted from government, yet, they are miserable and filled with hate and the need to have their "pound of flesh".   They will have it all, yet, they don't know how to enjoy life and to love and to work hard.   Very very sad actually.  Far from the American spirit. 

At a time when the press has stopped representing the people, we need voices, even the ones like Oberman.  We need people to speak out and Rush has never flinched.  Hope he gets better soon and comes back to his daily listener audience.

It is kinda creepy that he is in Hawaii with the president.  Wonder who else is there?  Wonder how surprised we would be if we knew.

It's amazing to me how people can hate someone they've never met so vehemently simply because he communicates ideas with which they disagree.

I'm amazed how people can hate like that (or even pretend to hate like that) for any reason.

Nurturing such hatred has got to be corrosive for the soul.

Which explains a lot, when you think about it.

522 As an independent haven't seen the "hate" that they always accuse conservatives of harboring.  Instead they seem like a happy bunch, with a "if you get lemons, make lemonade" attitude.  All the conservatives I know are easy going and tolerant with a sort of "live and let live" but "don't dictate to me" attitude which it seems from the polls, most Americans agree with.

O/T:  CNBC is doing a report on alcohol and the industry.  The snippy wine consultant, instead of blaming the economy, is blaming his customers.  He actually had the audacity and unmitigated to say "People come in and they want their sparkling wine for New Years so they say "I'd like the good champagne for ten dollars", then he made a face and said "we we're not going to France for ten dollars".  What a snippy person.  It's not there fault that they can't afford the over $25 bottle of Champagne.   Sheesh people have really gotten full of themselves this year....

Quite a few of the comments on the #Rush hashtag are toxic. It's amazing to me how people can hate someone they've never met so vehemently simply because he communicates ideas with which they disagree.

Well said.  I agree 100%.  It has got to be exhausting to live with such an unrelentingly negative outlook on so much of life.

A guy who doesn't agree with the President's policies hopes out loud he fails and the left goes bonkers.  The same guy is hospitalized with potentially fatal symptoms and they spew sickening filth wishing him dead, with an absolutely unbridled glee.  I just don't get how they don't see their own hypocrisy in this and numerous other instances.  It couldn't be more obvious and they're just blind to it.  And on top of that they constantly accuse the right of the same hateful, indecent behavior.  I just don't get it.

A few of the comments I saw on Twitter last night were just vile.  I'm not even going to check the hashtag.  I don't need to be that depressed about the mindset of my fellow man on New Year's Eve.

HEEEEEELARIOUS ASS YOU are. the poster you laugh at never attributed that which she does not understand to only libs. A plain reading simply states she does not understand the mindset. I am sure she does not understand why any conservative would wish death for a difference in thinking either. Nor do I. I can wish them a lot of things, but death is never one of them.

I don't see much evidence they have souls.  Nobody with a sould could believe what they say they believe.

It is interesting that the ones who get all preachy about the death penalty, and the poor jihadis  who die blasting people are in favor of killing babies through kindergarten and wish gruesome injuries or death on people who don't follow their religionbelief-systems to the precise letter.

I have met Rush personally twice. He has been great to me and my family, still sends my dad, a cochlear pioneer, personal cards for his b'day. He has even sent gifts over the yrs. A nicer man you could not hope to meet.

Posted by: di butler at December 31, 2009 11:17 AM (S3xX1)

Not to downplay your praise for Rush in any way, but in the old days, before the self-centered, perpetually adolescent Boomers took over, this kind of behavior was known as simple, common DECENCY. I know many people that do the same kinds of things---and most of them are conservatives. Imagine that!

Posted by: Kathy from Kansas at December 31, 2009 09:37 AM (yJlU8)

535 Telling "when I started listening to Rush stories"....

I started listening during the post-election fracas in November 2000, because it became so unavoidably obvious that NPR, CNN, etc. were misrepresenting, obfuscating and omitting huge piles of facts. I KNEW I was not getting the whole story--so tuned in to Rush for the first time to see what he had to say. Sure enough, he wasn't just offering opinions, he was filling the gaps in the NEWS reportage that were left by the MSM. And the MSM has only gotten worse in the last 9 years---and thus, Rush has gotten more and more necessary!

538 They don't hate him for communicating ideas with which they disagree.  They hate him because he is so effective at communicating ideas that they cannot refute and which cause them intense cognitive dissonance.

If someone was on the radio promoting ridiculous nonsense, dismissing that person and the ideas they promote would be easy.  This is why conservatives and libertarians don't get upset over the antics of Air America.  We get annoyed and shake our head in disbelief that anyone could be that out of touch with reality, but we don't get viscerally angry.  I'm just glad that I'm not afflicted with whatever mental disorder it is that they suffer from. 

When Rush comes on the air and says things that leftist know to be true but wish were not, they come unhinged.  They want him to be quiet and stop interfering with their willful ignorance and self-delusion.  So naturally he is a target of extreme anger and hatred.  Leftists are determined to live in a delusional state of mind and cannot tolerate anyone who forces them to confront reality.

539 The problem with the left is not that their so powerful because of actual intelligence and thinking.  They get their power and influence from their tactics.  They take kids in elementary school and start teaching them socialism all they from high school into college.  That is why they have no problem with Islam but they hate Catholics and Christianity.  The number of such schools have plummet, which makes them happy.  More chance of rotting their brains.  They have to start thinking by themselves to realize how screwed up Socialism is.

540 i'm not one to hide behind compassion so i'll just say i'm way beyond hate. i don't hate liberals because they are liberal, i don't hate them when they try to incoherently defend positions that are borderline insane. i have a problem when someone forces me though the arm of government to do something...espeically things i don't agree with. if there was a law that said everyone had to own a motorcycle i would hate it just as much as a law that said you must abort your first child. every step this government takes is a crushing step on my individual liberty and the only proper response is rage. i can understand why someone would advocate giving control of their lives to a well known incompetent institution...but don't force me to give up me own. you want to but a weak little sub human pet go right ahead, but i wish you the nothing but pain and torment the second it becomes your pathetic life's mission to ruin mine.

543 I started listening to Rush in 1990.  During the Bush years I didn't listen to him that much because I didn't think he was relevant any more, and to me he got kind of boring.  I wish Rush had been more steadfast in opposing Bush, but like so many others (including me, perhaps) we held our powder against Bush because of national security issues.  In retrospect I think that was a big mistake.

Rush has shown just how indispensable he is, since 2008.  Conservatives have so few effective advocates.  He's taken a tremendous number of shots from Dems  (including the NFL veto), but he has come on strong.  An incredibly smart guy, too.
