Rush Limbaugh Admitted to Honolulu Hospital

HONOLULU —

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is resting comfortably in a Hawaii hospital after suffering chest pains while on vacation, his radio program says.

Kit Carson, Limbaugh's chief of staff, told The Associated Press that he had no further information on Limbaugh's condition.

I was tempted to comment something about luau roast pig suppers and Rush's purported "poi" addiction but, like the Tiger Wood's stuff, these things pretty much write themselves.

I wonder how he'll justify, to his listeners, ever :sad4: darkening the door of a hospital in one of the two states that offers its citizens free medical care, which Rush Boy so violently opposes.

All that said, I do wish the Top 40 DJ once known as Jeff Christie a speedy recovery.

Posters on the SOWNY.ca board are less charitable. Here is one of the milder negative comments (some others cannot be re-posted on a family board such as this):
I wish Limbaugh a speedy recovery hoping they use his vocal cords to replace damaged arteries...leaving him with great heart health...but totally mute

He has great taste in hotels. The Kahala is one of the nicest places on the planet.

It's too bad the hate spewing gasbag wasn't recognized at admitting.
They should have sent him off to the most expensive private clinic on the island.
Maybe he'll have a health care epiphany after having his overvalued life saved in a free hospital.

C'mon Cleaver...Rush is all show biz. I bet he doesn't believe half the stuff that comes out of his mouth. I remember meeting his prototype, a guy named Wally George who ranted and raved in LA for decades. He used to have burly security guards "ejecting" left wing "hippy freaks" from his show. It was all an act. Off camera he was a decent, quiet guy...the father of "Risky Business" actress Rebecca DeMornay.

So what you're saying is that he's not really an a$$hole, he just plays one on radio, tv and the internet?
