Rush Limbaugh released from hospital

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who was hospitalized on Wednesday with chest pains and held for tests and observation, was released from Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu on Friday. In a news conference, Limbaugh, who had been vacationing in Hawaii, said that doctors had found nothing wrong with his heart and that the cause of his symptoms was unknown. “The pain was real, and they don’t know what caused it,” he told reporters. Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates Limbaugh’s show, said in a statement that he will return to his hosting duties “sometime next week, after some rest, but will make appearances with fill-in hosts in the early part of the week.”

    Nothing serious wrong? I guess I didnt get my New Years wish

  • TJ

    That sucks. The release, I mean, not the hospitalization.

  • Wayne

    How did he have chest pains? He doesn’t have a heart!

  • Christa K

    Way to ruin my New Year Rush… you could at least be very very sick!!! (haters I’m kidding, maybe just lots and lots of needless painful tests)

  • May S

    Should have stayed there, honestly. The less I have to hear about this man, the better.

  • Dave

    Ah, the left. So compassionate. Someone has a differing viewpoint and you want them to die. Kinda like the Taliban. Good work.

    • fancypants

      yea, kinda like when Limbaugh disregarded Ted Kennedy’s opinion on healthcare, b/c in RL’s words “Kennedy would be dead by the time the vote was cast.” Limbaugh is undeserving of any compassion, IMO. he is a vile creature.

      i believe he also once said that slavery had its virtues.

      Oh, it’s not his different viewpoints that bother me. It’s the way he presents them. His polarizing, hate-mongering ways does appeal to the many ignorant, inbred rednecks like him, no doubt about it, but the fact that he’s an unabashed bigot and a hypocrite is why many more people hate him. Not to mention he is hardly above wishing ill on others as well. You heard him last year, he wants Obama to fail. Whatever your personal opinions about the President are, wishing failure on him is basically wishing failure on the country as well. I never liked Bush, but I never wished him failure for that very reason, even though he turned out to be a failure anyway. So if it were Obama or any other Liberal being hospitalized for chest pains instead, who’s to say that Rush wouldn’t publicly wish that it turn out to be a fatal condition?

        Limbaugh was practically giddy while Ted Kennedy was dying of a malignant brain tumor.

    • Tarc

      It’s ridiculous to criticize anyone for ‘not having compassion’ for Rush. I don’t have any compassion for Hitler; I don’t have any compassion for monsters. You shouldn’t either.

    • Hershey

      Wow Dave you got seriously OWNED didn’t you??!??

      • Kathi

        Hershey-Davey did indeed get owned by the commenters here and, I must say, that makes me happy. Thanks to all who participated in the smackdown.

      • Ms. Take

        Ha ha……right on Kathi!!

  • darrin

    whether you like him or not he is still a human being and wishing him or anyone ill will is totally tasteless

    • Tarc

      Nonsense. And how undoubtedly hypocritical…

    • Mark

      so wishing bin Laden would die is tasteless. being human is not an excuse for not having humanity

  • Christa K

    Oh the right… so dry, so without a funny-bone! Wishing people ill is funny because it makes us feel better when we are down. I’m sorry if the human conditions bothers you but i’ve learned to deal with it and enjoy the benefits. Like making fun of someone I think is a demon placed here on earth to lead people down the path of evil.

  • Lux

    Rush Limbaugh is Satan personified.

    • snarkalicious

      How dare you insult Satan like that!!

  • Tony

    Great news for America, God Bless R.L.

  • Jessica

    It was just a fart that went the wrong way.

  • Jessica

    They can tell in a matter of minutes if you have had a heart attack or having one.

    Maybe its cancer in the form of Karma

    • Desmo

      So was Ted Kennedy’s brain tumor karma for murdering a girl?

      • Jeri

        +1. Desmo, you rock!

      • PJ

        Desmo shoots……he scores!!!!!!

      • Johnification

        I think losing two siblings and countless cousins to massive tragedy covered that. The cancer was just the last obstacle in a steep uphill trek to redemption and accomplishment, one which led to numerous accomplishments, much good done for the American people, and bipartisan respect. RIP Teddy, you earned it at long last.

  • Jessica

    Or Karma in the form of cancer

  • wakeforce

    Too bad he didn’t die!

  • Marie

    the joys of having medical insurance.
    too bad he cannot understand that people who either don’t have insurance or who aren’t rich would not have received the same quality of care.

    • Johnification

      I wonder how much his hospitalization would have cost if he didn’t have insurance.

    • Desmo

      Yeah it’s too bad our richest 1% president couldn’t get off his ass and get health care for everyone. I guess he is more interested in murdering innocent people in a pointless war.
