Rush Limbaugh Taken to Hospital with Chest Pains

Update:

"Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today after suffering chest pains," the statement said. "Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes and will keep you updated via rushlimbaugh.com and on his radio program."




That is good new indeed. 


























Rush Limbaugh was taken to the hospital while on vacation  in Hawaii. He was reported to have suffered chest pains and was taken to Queen's Medical Center in serious condition. Updates will follow.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Look man, I know you have a wife and five kids, but I may need some serious bail money when one of these "progressive" retards in Oregon laughs in my face about Rush.

All kidding aside, I haven't done much this year when it comes to praying, but if there was ever a time to do so, this is it.

I am not a Jon Edwards type, but I don't have good vibes about this. It would be our luck to lose him. Talk about a vacuum. Who would step int he Breech? Hannity ain't it, Beck, not exactly. Savage? People on our side don't like him.

I know he's lost a lot of weight this year. I thought may be he had some sort of bariatric surgery, but who knows. You'd think he'd be on top of his health. At this point all I can do is hope and pray for the best. Where is Pastor Chuck when you need him?

William said...

God forbid we lose him, but the same thought crossed my mind: Who would be heir to his throne? Beck has done his homework well, and shares his knowledge but he just doesn't have the right edge for me. Savage and Levin have too much edge. Fred Thompson, as much as I enjoy listening to, is absent from work too much. Laura Ingraham's voice grates on me after about thirty minutes. Michael Medved? Im not going there. Hugh Hewitt has great guests, but is too polite and lacks in passion. Jerry Doyle has a show worth listening to. Hannity constantly repeats himself, which is useful for the memory impaired, but once I hear it....

I'd like to see Mark Steyn have a daily three hour show. He has my type of humor, but maybe not for everyone.

While the aforementioned are good in their own way, there is nobody on God's green earth like Rush Limbaugh. Not so much because he is THE original, but this man has it all; humor, knowledge, timing, respect (to the listener)... he is simply the best.

I first heard Rush on a Sacramento station, when I lived in the bay area, just before he went national. I loved him then, and still do.

The Right Guy said...

Mark Steyn is great. There's no reason he shouldn't have his own show. There are a few others that fill in when he is out, but they are ok. I wonder why the media blackout. With MJ and others, we knew their last words before they were dead. I have to say it doesn't seem good.

The Right Guy said...

I bet industry people know...Hannity probably flew to Hawaii to disconnect his IV...

God forbid, but if Rush passed, do you think Chris Mathews would get the tingle again? I think Olbermann would have an orgasm.

I pray Rush recovers.

The Right Guy said...

Looks like the old boy is doing ok. I hope so. As far as the other two idiots go, well, they are idiots. The only tingle Matthews would feel is me pissing on his head.

I had a heart attack at 35. It caused my balls to grow 300 percent. hehee

This might cause Rush to walk funny.

The Right Guy said...

A heart attack at 35? From what? Jesus...People need to take better care of themselves. I don't know why it would cause your balls to grow. Rush plays golf, so that would be a hindrance.

William said...

Shit dude, at 35, I was still getting carded for buying beer or wine at grocery stores. True story!

The Right Guy said...

Only if I was clean shaven. Facial hair ages me 10 years.

chuck said...

It was a thrombosis deal. Nothing heart related really. They almost killed me, though. After about a month of going back and forth to Emory the hematologist found some elevated enzyme or something that causes blood clots. He said it's a genetic mutation and I can't do shit about it through either diet or exercise.

Yeah. That's right. I'm a mutant.

No name for it and no drugs either. I just eat 240 milligrams of aspirin every day.

chuck said...

Thinking you're about to die and then not actually being dead changes how you see the world.

I was kidding about the balls thing. It was more metaphorical than physical.

The Right Guy said...

I got three DVTs in my right leg in 1993. I had been bed ridden with Mono. I was on coumadin for 6 years and they ended up putting a greenfield filter in my vena cava so if I threw a clot, it would catch it before it got to my heart or lungs. That also got me off coumadin. I have venous insufficiency in that leg, so I have to wear a compression stocking, but that is about it. Being active and losing weight helps...

chuck said...

Damn. That sounds like a bitch. Its a shame we don't live a country where you has access to medical care. hoho

Whats funny about my deal is that after I was out of intensive care the doctor said what happened wasn't life threatening. I was pretty pissed at the time because I almost died when they loaded me up with blood thinners and then punched a hole in my femoral artery. I bled internally for three days in intensive care. I was all swelled up and purple as a concord grape from the waist down. Worst pain I've ever experienced. It looked gross as hell too.

All in all I'm grateful for the experience, but I sure pay out the ass for insurance now.

The Right Guy said...

I had the worst medical insurance you can imagine. It was an HMO called HIP. It was like english medical care and was staffed by pakistanis and third rate losers. There were no doctor's offices, just clinics, and you had to go to one before you could do anything. So I had a calf the size of a football, and I had to drive 12 miles to a clinic to be told by doctor patel that "oh yes, you have a blood clot, you must go to the hospital right away". No shit sherlock. They wouldn't give me clot dissolving drugs because they cost too much, so the clots stays lodged in my deep saphenous vein and wrecked three valves thereof. Nothing I could do as they gave me the minimal standard of care, which is blood thinners and a lymphidema pump in the hospital. The same asshole doctor 3 weeks before would prescribe erythromycin when I got a strept throat, which was on top of my mono. He gave me amoxicilin, which is cheaper, but it didn't work. I had to be hospitalized with that because I couldn't swallow anything. I had to hire a private doctor to come in, look at me, and tell the Pak asshole to give me erythromycin. after I got it, I started getting better. In his twisted mind, I was getting better care than I would have back in his country.

And the dirty little cocksucker's name was Dr. Raby. I should have known just by the name. More like Rabies.

chuck said...

Duly noted. I'll be on the lookout for him. hoho

The Right Guy said...

I doubt he'd go down to Georgia, but then Charlie Daniels said the devil did, so who knows.
