    The Rush Who Made New Years

    The Rush hated Libruls! The whole Librul reason!
    Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
    It could be that his head wasn’t screwed on quite right.
    It could be, perhaps, that he wasn’t all too bright.
    But I think that the most likely reason of that
    May have been that his ass was two sizes too fat

    Whatever the reason,
    His ass or his brain,
    He went to the Librul Aloha State, hating the Libs,
    Staring down from his suite with a sour, Rushy frown
    At the warm lighted windows below in their town.
    For he knew every Lib down in Lib-ville beneath
    Was busy now, hanging a healthcare wreath.

    “And they’re hanging their socialism!” he snarled with a sneer.
    “Tomorrow will be healthcare for “most”! It’s practically here!”
    Then he growled, with his fat fingers nervously drumming,
    “I MUST find a way to keep (weakened) health reform from coming!”
    For, tomorrow, he knew…

    The Libs, young and old, would sit down and read books.
    And they’d read! And they’d read!
    And they’d READ! READ! READ! READ!
    They would start on paperbacks, and rare hardcovers
    Which was something the Rush couldn’t stand in the least!

    And THEN
    They’d do something he liked least of all!
    Every Lib down in Lib-ville, the tall and the small,
    Would stand close together, with election bells ringing.
    They’d stand in a line. And they were Demrat voting!

    They’d vote! And they’d vote!
    AND they’d VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
    And the more the Rush thought of the Lib Demrat-Voting
    The more the Grinch thought, “I must stop this whole thing!
    “Why for fifty-eight years I’ve put up with it now!
    I MUST stop Obama from winning!
    …But HOW?”

    And what happened then…?
    Well…in Hawaii they say
    That the Rush’s clogged heart
    Kakked that day!
    And the minute his heart didn’t feel quite so right,
    He flopped on his belly through the bright morning light
    And he fought back the healthcare! And the taxes for the beast!
    And he…

    The Rush discovered no one cared for him the least!

    Medication for back pain? We’ve seen this movie…

  • Hooray For Anything

    [re=487248]Lawndarts[/re]: Yeah, “back pain” is what I always tell my “doctor” whenever I need them to “prescribe” some oxycontin and vicodin.

  • Sparky McGruff

    [re=487248]Lawndarts[/re]: “He told medical crews that he was taking medication for a back problem, sources said.”

    In other words, the half dozen pills of oxycontin were not mixing well with the percocet, valium, and the viagra.

  • Katydid

    [re=487239]surfacenoise76[/re]: See my post above yours. Also too see Imprecatory Prayer.

    Although this lovely exhortation is straight out of the Old Testament, I don’t think Jews actually do it. They don’t have to. They just annoy you until you pray for sweet death. Or at least my family does.

    Bit OT – I married an Italian guy, well, Italian-American, and one day another Italian-American friend came over to me and said, in horror, “OMG, your daughter is going to be an Italian-Jewish mother. Look what you’ve done!”

    And what I can tell you is that Italians and Jews are the same, except for the Jesus thing. Jews aren’t always with the crossing of the face and putting up the crucifixes and such.

  • CanadianBacon

    Calm down everyone. Rush will be okay. He has never exhibited any symptoms that indicate he has a heart so the chest pains were probably caused from eating puppies too quickly. And don’t make fun of his back problems, carrying the entire Republican Party around on his shoulders would hurt anyone.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    So, the other day I was going through boxes of stuff in my mom’s attic, looking for some photos of my grandmother, when I came across a bunch of stupid papers and shit that I had written in middle school. They were incredibly dumb, and one of them was a photo collage essay on how the world would improve once my mother because supreme dictator (this was probably a bid for higher allowance, although my mother is, to this day, a better leader than most pols we have). On one page, I had cut out a picture of Rush Limbaugh and added a shotgun wound to his forehead.

    So, (1) I have no idea how I got away with that shit AND got a passing grade and (2) Rush Limbaugh has been sucking a massive donkey dick since I was in fucking MIDDLE SCHOOL.

    As Rafiki said in the Lion Kind, “Eet ees time.”

    From TMZ, believe it or not:

    UPDATE: 11:29 PM EST — Sources inside the hotel tell TMZ the hotel took drastic measures to get the mystery patient — reported to be Rush Limbaugh — out of the resort without being seen.
    We’re told hotel security shut down a wing of the hotel and the guest elevators — the patient was transported using the employee elevator bank.

    Translation: The EMTs were still trying to cut Rush and the cabana boy who scores his OxyContin out of the wetsuit, and the hotel manager ordered them to take the freight elevator rather than cart that whole bloody latexy screaming santorumy mess through the lobby and past the restaurant.

    Honolulu, Hawaii (CNN) — Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh was taken to a Honolulu hospital with chest pains Wednesday, a show staffer said.

    “Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today after suffering chest pains,” Kit Carson, the chief of staff for the Rush Limbaugh Show, said.

  • Hooray For Anything

    Sadly, he’ll probably get better and then quickly go on the air and talk about what wonderful health care he got and how if Obamacare got enacted, he would have died. And a bunch of poor people who listen to his show will nod their heads in agreement and pray to little baby Jesus that Health Care reform will be stopped so the next time they’re in a resort in Hawaii and have a heart attack, they’ll be ferreted out of the hotel by hotel security to a first class hospital where they’ll be tended to by the very finest in doctors and not have to deal with going through some sort of ACORN run Death Panel instead.

    And I too look forward to the next show. Maybe the Surgeon General could talk to a few of his friends in the psychiatric business and see if there’s any way for all Democrats of goodwill to try and promote that response. Maybe try to manipulating him into eating out of the nearest unflushed toilet jabbering about something or other having to do with the colored folks. Let’s hope so.

    Flash — Washington, DC: The Federal Death Panel is currently meeting in emergency session to consider the case of Rush Limbaugh. Death Panel insiders tell the AP that in light of the number of right wing radio talkshow hosts currently on the air, Limbaugh has “little societal value” and the Panel is likely to vote against any further spending on his care.

    “It’d be like spending $1 million on some injuried Mexican day-laborer, who are literally a dime a dozen,” said one Death Panel member, who added, “Yes, he’s popular with a few million listeners, but they’ll quickly switch to Beck, Hannity, Mikey Reagan, or some other talker. Talk radio is ‘short attention span theater’ anyway, so we figure after 6 weeks off the air, it’ll be ‘Rush who?’ for most listeners.”

    A Death Panel staffer also told AP that, while Limbaugh’s care likely will be limited to ice chips and Bayer, the young Dominican boy who was surgically removed from Limbaugh’s private parts will be given full coverage, including extensive pyschological help.

    Meh. They’ll just give him one of Dick Cheney’s spare robot hearts, and he’ll live forever. Nothing to see here, folks.

    I think this was just a cardiac scare, with no surgery and no death. What it exposes is that he’s still drug-addled (perhaps still with dealer-sized quantities of Oxycontin) while he’s spewing forth bile and lies on the radio.

    There’s some debate about precisely how apocryphal this story is, but when General Franco was on his deathbed, a branch of the British Dockers’ Union passed an (unofficial) motion to send him a telegram reading DIE COMMA YOU BASTARD COMMA DIE.

    Seems to have done the trick, cuz the guy thereafter expired of a massive haemorrhage that, so it’s said, sprayed blood up the walls.

    Just sayin’. Happy new year.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    from the Miami Herald, August 17, 2034, Obituary section:

    Rush Limbaugh, natural causes. Once a famously controversial and polarizing conservative talk show host, Limbaugh spent the the last twenty five years of his life in relative obscurity working quietly and persistently for progressive causes, most notably worldwide disarmament, environmental protection, and solidifying basic rights for racial minorities and homosexuals. His change of heart was said to have been triggered by a near death experience and hospitalization after consuming an entire luau roast pig on a dare.

    This would only be better if Bill and Rush were doing double anal on Michelle and Rush has a heart-attack rushing all of his blood to his penis jamming him and Bill in Michelle’s ass. Bill is too clueless to see that his fuck buddy is dead. He only knows that Michelle’s ass just got tighter and she is absolutely screaming in pleasure. Then, Rush topples like a tree and everyone gets pinned in his belly pillow. The Santorum dries and hardens gluing Bill, Michelle, and the corpse together requiring the paramedics to use the jaws of life to separate them, but they can’t because they’re laughing too hard.

    It wasn’t a heart attack. Goddamnit!

    He ate something. And he ate a lot of it. And sometime around 4:00 AM, while hooked up to all kinds of heart monitors, he cut an enormous wet fart and ran to the toilet and shat like a rhino all over the place. Motherfucker sprayed the walls. It was everywhere. And it was so fucking satisfying the piece of shit had an orgasm.

    But he will die one day. And then I’m going to piss on his grave. And so are all the people who are like me going to do the same. So his graveside smells like a fucking sewer. It’s our duty. This is what we’ll do. And it will be good.

    Oh, and wishing anyone dead (other than Hitler & Bin Laden) is wrong. I know some of us Liberals dislike the man, but c’mon, he’s entitled to his obviously skewed rants as much as Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
    If Bill Richardson was still in Congress (3 time Nobel Peace Prize nominee), I am certain many on “both sides of the aisle” would get more things done for this country than argue. Nancy is more about party affiliation than patriotism or “getting along”.
