Senior Right Wing Ideologue has stage 4 Cancer.. Thoughts and Prayers ?

Smoking for 40 years will get you. I guess the stop smoking campaigns were not liberal conspiracies. This man has singlehandedly suckered millions into the current end of the world Republican party's ideas.

I usually do not wish ill on people. But there are exceptions ...

Rush used to have a shtick were he'd refer to holding something in his "formerly nicotine-stained fingers." I wonder if he still uses that.

He's been the object of my prayers for quite some time. Even though I didn't specify lung cancer.

Maybe he will have a Lee Atwater change of heart.

My illness helped me to see that what was missing in society is what was missing in me: a little heart, a lot of brotherhood. The 1980s were about acquiring – acquiring wealth, power, prestige. I know. I acquired more wealth, power, and prestige than most. But you can acquire all you want and still feel empty. What power wouldn't I trade for a little more time with my family? What price wouldn't I pay for an evening with friends? It took a deadly illness to put me eye to eye with that truth, but it is a truth that the country, caught up in its ruthless ambitions and moral decay, can learn on my dime. I don't know who will lead us through the '90s, but they must be made to speak to this spiritual vacuum at the heart of American society, this tumor of the soul

Nah.

His legacy is too much of spreading hate and helping create an atmosphere where the lives of others has been terrible, even in peril. I cannot wish him well.

On the other hand, if he is not once again showing total disregard for the truth as a means to further his own ends, wishing him still more misfortune would be being like him, which I am not.

The late William F. Buckley said it this way:
"Forbid smoking to everyone you care about. "

William F. Buckley was a racist piece of shit. Eloquent, sure, but even his latter-day racism regrets were hollow.

Interesting thing about conservatives who later change their basic position on such things is that, like Barry Goldwater, they always seem to do it late enough in life that their public voice has lost most of it's previous effect.

But then he took up CIGARS! He became a cigar maven and snob

I have a friend in stage 4 lung cancer and cannot bring myself to wish Limbaugh ill when I am trying to send all my energy to my friend for remission and/or a peaceful passing. I feel that if there is a higher power, they would find it wrong to weaponize the very thing that is killing my friend.

I’m sorry for your friend.

I am not sorry for Limpbag. I hope Limpbag coughs up a lung live on his show and dies a horrible painful death.

I'd guess he has singlehandedly done more to divide this nation than even Putin could hope for in 45*. My dad listened to him in the '80s/'90s. Thank goodness my dad got over that.
