    IF you have never been put on the drugs that Rush got hooked on, COUNT your lucky STARS !!

    Sometimes masking pain is not a good thing!!

    Get well Rush, we need you for 2010.

    The only voice we conservatives have is talk radio, and Rush made that.

    Wonder what it must be like, laying there in pain and literally millions of scumbags praying (or whatever it is they do) for your death. At least he'll have decent healthcare, this time.

    A pompous ex-disk jockey turned talk show host. Addicted to drugs and excess and people listen to him? Too many people worship celebrity. As a conservative I am embarrased by the adulation given to talk show hosts, movie stars and other personalities. My heroes are soldiers, cops and working people. I bet you nuts quote John Wayne, reading his movie lines?

    Why should rbmtrap be ashamed? It looks like a question to me rather than sarcasm. However, his heart is probably giving out pumping all that blood to his swollen head. You know, you have to have a huge brain to supply with oxygen rich blood when you are right about everything (and never wrong).

    By the way, which one of you Rush fans is sending the get well card and flowers? I presume you will be sending your well wishes if you haven't already. My sarcasm aside, I do wish him well, because without him life and politics wouldn't be so entertaining. John E.

    Rush has better political insight then anyone else on the radio or television. He is the first to go public against many of the lunacies from the left. I hope he gets well soon despite any personal problems he has. America needs him to counter fools like Obama, Reid and Pelosi, that great trio of intellectual giants now running this country in the ground. 53 percent of Americans think Obama is doing a good job. Please get well soon Rush.

    I like Rush and his ideals. It is what this country needs a lot more of right now. How can you run someone down when they have the highest rated talk show in the country? His ratings speak volumes.

    Cuba, Oprah has high ratings too with her television show. Does her high ratings make her what this country needs? I'm not down on your opinion just want to make sure you are not a follower of polls or ratings.

    I don't agree with him a lot of the time, but he is entertaining. I'm amazed at what he gets away with saying. I was also watching the sports program live when he made the remark about McNabb. I remember thinking "he's going to get in trouble for saying that".

    I'll be glad when he's back on the air.

    His job is tweaking the hell out of liberals, and he's good at it.


    Frankly, I think the country could use a lot fewer of the holy roller "James Dobson" conservatives, and more of the drinking, cussing Ted Nugent and Rush L. types. JMO.

    I rest my case.

    "Kicking Rush When He's Down
    After their nastiness in the hours after Rush Limbaugh went into the hospital with chest pains, I don't ever want to hear another sermon from liberals about "civility" or "hate," or "the politics of personal destruction," or hear them pass judgment on what is "mean-spirited."
    By: L. Brent Bozell

    The news that Rush Limbaugh had entered a Hawaii hospital over the New Year’s weekend complaining of chest pains triggered a volcanic internet eruption for the hard left the likes of which we’ve never seen before. If Mt. Vesuvius could vomit in a literal sense, this would be it.

    This time these radicals let their guard down and showed their true colors.

    The Twitter lines were ablaze as liberals celebrated the news, news that suggested Mr. Limbaugh was at the very least very ill, and quite possibly dying or maybe already dead:

    "Rush Limbaugh was rushed to the hospital in Honolulu. Maybe Santa did get my letter."

    "Rush was rushed to the Hospital. Just when I thought Christmas was over…"

    "Come on God, I don’t ask for much, and I very rarely ask you to smite anyone, but please kill Rush Limbaugh tonight."

    Sounding boards like "Democratic Underground" had field days, living down to their reputations for wishing the very worst for conservatives. One very early conversation among their members carried this exchange:

    "I hope he croaks. The world would be a better place."

    "No such luck! Remember, ‘only the good die young.’"

    "If that holds true, the miserable troglodyte will make Methuselah look like a teenager by the time he dies."

    Over on the pop culture TMZ site there were some strong words of encouragement for the radio talk show titan but still the leftist hatred dominated. Examples:

    "Best news I’ve heard in years… Hope he joins [Michael Jackson] the sooner the better."

    "Won’t miss ya! There will be a little less rage in this world if this druggie goes."

    "I hope he fails."

    "I hope he dies."

    And yet nothing quite matched the bile belched by those fine men (and women too?) at the far left’s Valhalla, the Daily Kos. Who writes for the Daily Kos, you ask? Well, to quote the site (even at the risk of exposing its need for a wee bit updating) "Among luminaries posting diaries on the site are President Jimmy Carter, Senator Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi," etc., etc. In other words, the most powerful voices of the left in America purportedly reside at the Daily Kos.

    And what do Senator Barack Obama’s fans think of the news that Rush Limbaugh was at that moment in a hospital presumably fighting for his life? One blogger at the Daily Kos had the temerity to actually suggest that others not wish Rush ill will since it "feeds his ego." No such luck. Among the responses to his plea:

    "It is nature’s way of telling a—holes like Limbaugh that beers are being thrown back in celebration of that heart attack."

    "If he gets well, so be it. If he gets worse, be it paralyzed, comatose, or dead, he’s earned it. I hope he dies and I’m glad he’s sick. All this fat a—hole has done is encourage a whole generation of Americans to be right-wing, bigoted scumbags like him. I’ll never apologize for hating Rush. Or wishing death and illness on him."

    "So if Adolf Hitler were to die today would we see a bunch of RIP diaries and ‘our heart should go out to his friends and family’?"

    It is heartening (pun intended) to note that not every liberal institution behaved so abominably. Let us hold up for commendation sites like the Huffington Post which made the editorial decision not to run any vicious attacks on Rush, instead limiting its commenters to good wishes for his recovery.

    Likewise there were numerous liberal activists out there who, while clearly expressing their political differences with the conservative leader, also loudly expressed their desire for his well-being and equally loudly (and futilely) called for their fellow liberals to well-behave.

    But too many liberals didn’t, because too many liberals just can’t, and I don’t ever want to hear another sermon from them about "civility", or "the politics of personal destruction." They are no longer allowed to talk about "hate" or pass judgment on what is "mean-spirited." I don’t want to hear the words "character assassination" or even "cheap shot" leave their lips.

    Unless, of course, it’s preceded by "I am guilty of…" Roger Ebert, the long-time movie critic was for many years a very fat man. He is thinner now after a series of cancer surgeries on his throat and jaw which have left him unable to speak without a machine. It is beyond curious – it is crass, and downright sick, wholly unprofessional, and personally pathetic -- that this man found it appropriate to make Rush-is-a-fatty jokes on Twitter (especially since Rush no longer is overweight).

    "Rush: Hawaii is the only country where the Hawaiian shirts come in S, M, L, XL, Rush, and Sumo."

    "Surgeons: ‘Rush doesn’t require a heart transplant, but an installation.’"

    "Tests find nothing wrong with Rush Limbaugh’s heart. Physically."

    Ebert has apologized. Whatever.

    Rush, it’s good to hear you are well. It’s a helluva way to start the new year.

    OK, now was this OK when we did it to Ted Kennedy?"

    Yep for Kennedy...

    I don't think Rush has killed anybody with his microphone and/or car!

    Focus...remember to focus on the subject at hand. If you can't, please go back on your drugs!

    Never liked Ted Kennedy but I never wished ill health on anybody. So happy that Rush has a good heart. Confirmed by the hospital, he has a good heart.
