Rush Limbaugh, for decades the leading figure in conservative talk radio, said during his program on Monday that he has advanced lung cancer and will soon begin treatment.
Limbaugh, 69, gave few details about his condition other than a diagnosis from two doctors.
The radio icon said he sought a doctor’s opinion after experiencing shortness of breath on Jan. 12, his birthday.
“I thought about not telling anybody,” he said on the air from his home studio in West Palm Beach, Fla. “It is what it is. You know me, I’m the mayor of Realville. This has happened, and my intention is to come here every day I can and do this program as normally and competently and expertly as I do each and every day because that is the source of my greatest satisfaction professionally, personally.”
He added: “I’ve had so much support from family and friends during this that it’s been tremendous. I told the staff today that I have a deeply personal relationship with God that I do not proselytize about. But I do, and I have been working that relationship tremendously, which I do regularly anyway, but I’ve been focused on it intensely for the past couple of weeks.”
Another self indulgent conservative who lives a dickish life but believes he will be saved in the end by shooting off a prayer or two to the almighty.
I believe the Mafia behaves in a similar fashion.
Now look I seriously despise Rush Limbaugh, and have for decades now.
However, having said that, I hope he recovers fully and goes on to live many more dickish years.
I do not wish death on my enemies, that is what the Right Wing does, we are better than that.
However I would not be at all upset if Limbaugh’s disease took away from the airwaves permanently.
For one thing I think that would be good for the country, and secondly….well he’s a dick!
