Dead of cancer at the age of 70.  Equally loved and hated, the man's impact on the last 30 years of American politics can't be overstated.

It's about time, and good riddance. It's rare that I wish suffering on anyone, but for Limbaugh I'll make an exception. I hope this miserable human being's last days were filled with agony.

One of his biggest lows was accusing Michael J Fox of pretending that his Parkinson's symptoms were really bad. That he was shaking more on purpose. No wonder he was pals with Trump.

It’s times like these that I really wish I believed in hell. The good news is that he suffered a lot at the end on earth even if he can’t be tortured by Satan in death. I’ll take it.

None of you believe that just maybe he was playing a role? Meaning, he was so far over the top that it was done just to get a paycheck? The guy didn't rape kids, beat women, rape women, etc. He was a TV news guy that took waaaaay too many Vicodin. Nobody that follows the sport of wrestling can shit on him for that. You may not have liked his opinion, but the worst thing you should be able to say about him is that he's full of shit. He's no different than Howard Stern, Mancow, or any of those other "shock jock" types, he just laid heavily into political bullshit because it's a lot easier to fake that you know what you are doing than most real life news.

Infamous wrote: Thanks for no known rapes is solid eulogyHe didn't rape women or children.  I don't have the facts on men and animals, neither common farm variety or zoo creatures.  I think he was full of shit, and I didn't like him.  But the way some people are treating him, you'd think he set fire to buildings full of their family members.  He was a scumbag like pretty much most of the class of people that he worked around (whether liberal or conservative, they're all lower than low).  But he was doing the job that he got paid for, and he learned that the more outrageous, the more zeroes at the end of the check.  He is gone now, so all of the people that were OUTRAGED by what he said and DEMAND AN APOLOGY, well, I guess they all won now because cancer is a nasty way to die.

I think he started out as the "heel political talk show host", but started to get so far deep into it that he started to believe his own BS. Along with his fans, he took himself too seriously. Like: "I'm going to say this CRAZY IDEA to get a rise out of you. Oh wait... people are into this and believe it? Well, then..."

I remember working in a warehouse, assembling furniture, with a guy who loved Limbaugh in the summer of 1994. It was an experience. I thought it was hilarious that he called his show "The EIB Network", which supposedly stood for "Excellence in Broadcasting". Also thought I was hilarious as I used to rib the guy for listening to "Douche Limbo".

Went to college with a guy, Matt, who would blast Limbaugh's midday radio show on level 10 on his stereo so our entire floor could hear it.   This was around 1992.  I was the RA. "Quiet Hours" did not go into effect until 7pm every night, but I was getting some blowback from other guys on the floor who were either trying to get some studying done or just chilling. Had to have a talk with Matt, who also had sort of a loner, me-against-the-world attitude. Got him to turn it down finally. Matt also collected laser discs and had like 200 movies. He wouldn't stop trying to sell me on how LDs were the next big thing and were going to put VHS out of business.


Funny how the most ridiculous memories stick with you. I can't even remember when this would have been, but I was driving around and had Limbaugh on for a bit (maybe late 90s), and he was talking about how he had discovered a secret about weight loss. This was revolutionary. It was going to change his life. He said the secret was that he could eat pretzels with fat-fat cream cheese. Greatest snack in the world, and he could eat as much as he wanted and never gain weight.

Someone has posted the video of Rush Mocking Michael J Fox's Parkinson's symptoms. It's even worse than I remembered.

This is that whole “Hitler was kind to animals” joke. It’s a silly question. Of course at some point over the decades he said some “limited government” and anti-PC stuff that I agreed with, but that’s hardly the point considering 90% of the shit he was spewing at the end. And even if I agreed with it, I’m sure it was for different reasons.

A few other things I heard today: he had a segment were he read off the names of hay people who recently died of AIDS and celebrated with horns and bells, and he claimed Robin Williams killed his self because Hollywood liberals in general are unhappy. So clearly anyone making fun of his death are totally out of line.

He used to play “Another One Bites the Dust” when someone of notoriety died of Aids. There is video of him coping to just riling folks up to sell advertising.

Some people I miss when they die, he’s just someone I’ll notice that’s gone..

I do remember him having a good time at the expense of those dying from AIDS.  One thing I remember.

If people are celebrating your death, you did something right.

You can say that about Bin Laden or Jeffrey Dahmer. Plenty of people celebrated their deaths. Makes no sense.

I honked my horn and played music, the way Rush did when he announced people dying of AIDS.

I had an aunt who was really into him back in the early 90s. She loved Rush and absolutely hated Howard Stern. She was a hardcore Christian who lived religion and would have multiple TVs and radios going at the same time . With her everything was God 24/7. She was a nice lady, but it was a bit much. My uncle was an alcohol and I can understand why. Not saying it was entirely her fault, but having to live with that day after day certainly doesn't make you wanna stop.

Limbaugh earned his scorn and I bet if he were here to read it he would love it.

Used to be you could play it loud and proud, but then because if guilt by association it was no longer cool.

I used to listen to KMOX in St Louis on my drive to work, for traffic news.
Then one day, every single morning they would have a clip of Rush in a raspy high-pitched voice shrieking about what horrible thing someone he didn't like was doing. It was so obnoxious I quit listening to KMOX in the morning and just took my chances with sitting in a traffic jam and being late.

Rush was a carbuncle on the ass of America. He was the primary reason the FCC needs to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.
