Rush Limbaugh Resting Comfortably, Detractors Are Not

By December 31, 2009

Follow me on:

Rush Limbaugh underwent a medical exam on Thursday after being rushed to a hospital on Wednesday complaining of chest pains.

"Walter Williams, the guest host on Limbaugh's radio show Thursday, told listeners that Limbaugh 'continues to rest very comfortably' at a hospital in Honolulu," reports nydailynews.com.

Since initial reports of Limbaugh's health, reaction from some of his detractors has been pretty pointed. Rob Kall at opednews.com wrote: "I'm a little embarassed to say that when the news alert flashed on my iPhone, I thought how nice it would be if the man (actually, I used an expletive relating to his mother) dropped dead...But is it hateful and intolerant for me to want him to die? Maybe it is. So be it."

A softer opinion was expressed by Rochelle Riley at freep.com who wrote: "People have been wishing that a loudmouth who's free to speak would die...[but]...To have America means having the Rush Limbaughs of the world. Stop wishing death on democracy."

Someone visiting Limbaugh's page at Wikipedia even prematurely declared the talk show host dead. His Wikipedia status has since been change back to "alive".

It's not easy being the #1 Conservative talk show host in America.
