Rush Limbaugh Hospitalized While Stalking Pelosi and Obama in Hawaii

Rush Limbaugh Rushed to Hospital For Chest Pains – Breaking

While vacationing in the foreign continent of Hawaii (where Cokie Roberts thinks real Americans don’t go for vacations and from whence our usurper’s phony birth certificate originates), Republican Party Leader and Conservative Talk Radio Host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a Honolulu hospital Wednesday afternoon with chest pains. Rush has brought us such quips as, “Enraging liberals is simply one of the more enjoyable side effects of my wisdom.”

“Paramedics responded to the call at 2:41 p.m. at the Kahala Hotel and Resort.

Limbaugh suffered from chest pains, sources said. Paramedics treated him and took him to Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.”

Aside from Rush’s prescription drug addiction and an inner ear disease which lead to deafness in one ear, he has enjoyed reasonable health, although he suffers from yo yo weight issues; most recently dropping more than 90 pounds.

One wonders if he was hoping to catch a glimpse of the President whilst on the golf course in Hawaii, or hoping to share a drink with Pelosi, both of whom are also in Hawaii during the Christmas holiday.

Or perhaps he had planned to be there with Sarah Palin, who supposedly had to cut her vacation short. I won’t wish for him to fail, even though according to Rush, that’s a perfectly OK thing to do. Lines must be drawn.

Since Limbaugh is filthy rich, he will get the best care possible, then likely return to his radio show and use himself as an example of why the United States does not need meaningful healthcare reform.

Is it a coincidence that Rush just happened to be in Hawaii at the same time as Obama and Pelosi? I’ll bet there are already some on the right who don’t think so. It is only a matter of time until the Democrats are blamed for Limbaugh’s chest pains. I am sure that Glenn Beck is working on special on this very subject as we speak.

  1. My response was that the “prayers” urged by Sen Coburn was, quote “What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can’t make the vote tonight,” he said. “That’s what they ought to pray.” No death in there. The fact that there are crazies out there who do is unrelated both to Sen Coburn and Rush Limbaugh.

    So the fact that you’re better informed than I on Sen Coburn’s personal religious feelings, which I’ll gladly concede, is not related to what he specifically said.

    Psalms 109 is talking about some vile sinner, so equating that to Obama…well, I guess that makes sense.

    I did learn from looking up what you said that there are people out there praying for bad things to happen. That’s easily as bad as the multitude of libs hoping for Rush’s death.

    The people you point out are on your team as far as wishing people ill (which by the way doesn’t actually work, just so you know).

    No Dog Gone, writing a hate piece about someone doesn’t require any research. It’s just hate, just like the Psalms 109 people.

  2. I wonder if the praying that the republinuts did for Sen Byrd to die or get sick to not show up at the vote on healthcare is backfiring. Limp-baugh deserves EVERYTHING he gets, he has brought this on himself. The fat, pill poppin, no brain, conservative idiot will get NO sympathy from me. I say good ridence!!!!!

  3. Yes, people on the right pray for those with whom they disagree to die. Are you perhaps unfamiliar with psalm 109, verses 8 and 9? Are you perhaps unfamilliar with all of the considerable quantity of available merchandise promoting Psalm 109?

    Try a google search for, oh, Psalm 109:8-9, or prayer against Obama, or prayer for Obama to die, or prayer for ____ (fill in the blank with the name of an elected democrat).

    On another blog I read a comment from someone else who was unfamiliar with the promotion of imprecatory prayer, who tried to argue that Senator Coburn was just concerned about the bad weather — you are almost as unbelievable.

    Are you seriously THAT uninformed about the relgious and political affiliations of Senator Coburn and his dominionist Family / Fellowship colleagues? Are you that ignorant on the subject of imprecatory prayer (hint – it’s old testament, in a big way).

    Inform yourself better jlheathfam! before you advise others not to post.

    My colleague Ms. Jones is considerably better informed and has researched her topic rather more extensively than your opinionated and shallow self.

    Wishing you a Happy New Year – and that you are less ignorant in 2010.

  4. First of all, no one prayed for Sen Byrd to get sick or die. They said to pray that some Senator for government control of health care wouldn’t show up. If you can’t think of another way to not show up other than death, than don’t bother posting.

    If you’d like, you can always go to Cuba for health care, where as anyone who’s seen Michael Moore’s documentary, is clearly the best health care anywhere. How about you worry about your own care and quit screaming for a government with enforcement powers to make someone else pay your own lousy bills. Greedy.

  5. In fact several followers of the desert death cults when on TV and said they in fact prayed for the death of democrats. “Rev. Wiley Drake of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park not only declared last week that the murder of Kansas abortion Dr. George Tiller had been the answer to his “imprecatory” prayers, but that the so-called Man of God later announced he’d made a similar prayer of death for President Barack Obama”. So do some research before you lie.

  6. what a sad, sad, little man you are, jlheathfam.

    if you can’t see the difference between writing a piece that calls a hateful person a hateful person and using religion and God to pray for someone else’s death, then there’s really no help for you.

    and if you’re going to call Obama a vile sinner, then i wonder what words you have for your god, w bush.

  7. You’ve got to be kidding.

    Frankly, other than deploring Rush’s hatefulness towards others, I don’t know any ‘libs’ who hate Rush, or who want him to die. I don’t think anyone considers Rush important enough to want him to die. And before you get to excited over that statement, I don’t think it is even remotely a valid assumption to assume that ‘libs’ want anyone to die, important or otherwise. Can you document your assertion that libs are actively wishing Rush harm, comparable to the psalm documentation? Or is that just how you choose to assume Libs feel?

    jlheathfam, you are taking the statement made by Coburn out of the larger context of similar statements. Those statements in favor of dominionism, imprecatory prayer, affect the meaning of that statement.

    So………how DO you explain the absence of clarification by Coburn that he never intended harm towards Byrd? Were you for example aware that similar ‘imprecatory prayers’ were made about / towards Ted Kennedy, with some on the right claiming it a victory of those prayers when Kennedy died from his illness? Just as an example.

    Sorry jlheathfam, but before you draw conclusions about the intent of Coburn’s statement, DO look further into the intersection of Coburn’s religious beliefs and practices, and his politics. They are arguably far more actively connected than is common, and not in a good way. Coburn is part of a very secretive entity – a senior position, in it at that – which advocates as its goal establishing a theocracy, a theocracy that worships political power. It is DIRECTLY related to his statement.

  8. I looked up Rev. Wiley Drake, and it’s just like “anonymous” says. I will say I explicitly condemn such deplorable behavior. I don’t like it, and I know you don’t either. But I don’t think you can pin that on conservatives. Even if you found a few other examples, statistically, I would put them more in the loony category.

    While I know most libs don’t wish for Rush’s death, many do, and my point was that is just as bad. As examples, Wanda Sykes (comedian) wished for his death, as did Bill Maher, the Huffington Post, the Daily Kos, lib broadcaster Mike Malloy, and several others, broadcasters, performers, and bloggers. To libs credit, there are a few out there saying to knock off the death wishes.

    This very article states that Rush was “stalking” Obama/Pelosi, a bizarre and mean spirited accusation, as Rush was where he often vacations, as do many others.

    Coburn is part of a secret society to overthrow our government and turn it into a theocracy? If true, would be similar to Obama’s politically communist mentors and current communist associations; though not nearly as bad as Obama’s very real destruction of the economy and personal liberties. I saw a Maddow piece on it, but nothing very firm and would be interested in more references.

    Though we disagree on many things, some vehemently, we should be on the same side in terms of both blanket hate/insults and personal liberties. Anyone who tries to impose their worldviews on others by force or secrets should be our collective enemy, whether that power imposition is colored by religion or progressive values.

  9. jlheathfam, about opposing blanket hate / insults, and that we should resist efforts to impose worldviews by force or secrets.

    If you look further, as Ihave btw, I believe you will find a distinct and not by any means tiny subset of conservatives about ‘the family / fellowship’. I would encourage, in the interests of being informed, that you look into it. Jeff Sharlats book is just a beginning; others have covered it as well.

    Happy New Year, jlheatfam. I hope you will find other ideas here that are challenging and interesting. We do our best to be so – factually based.

  10. Yes, I absolutely agree with Dog Gone. Read the book entitled “The Family” by Jeff Sharlet. It is eye opening and very scary. But there is a healthy effort to get more current conservative politicians involved/belonging to “the family” or to recruit and place more conservative politicians in office from within that group.

  11. and because I’m the kind of person who doesn’t blindly accept everything I read without question, I have been reading more slowly – taking time out to fact check at random different bits and pieces in the book, testing what Sharlet writes.

    So far, I haven’t found him off target even once. And THAT makes the validity of his book very scary indeed.

    I’m surprised it hasn’t had a larger readership. Sharlet’s book deserves to be number 1 on the national best seller list a heckuva lot more than that piece of inaccurate puffery ghost written for her that Palin is pushing.

    Widely read or not, thanks in large part to Rachel Maddow, but other coverage as well, the Family / Fealowship is no longer quite so under-the-radar secretive any more; though not from lack of trying on their part.
