    My wife is an oncology nurse. I would not wish cancer on anyone. But I think it's a fitting end for this blowhard.

    ETA: good.

    I think he smoked when he was younger - not saying this is the cause, but it could be a factor.

    What a horrible, wretched excuse for a human being. But you just know he will get all the treatment and the palliative care he helped deny to millions of others. Utter piece of shit.

    I knew there'd be a lot of classy comments in this thread. Didn't disappoint.

    Anyway, cancer is a horrible way to go. I don't wish it on anybody.

    Not on ANYBODY.

    I guess all that crap really was cancerous. Everyone is going to die. He is an angry sad demented person.

    I hope it is long and drawn out. I hope his hate keeps him going through the pain. It is the way he lived his life and I hope he strives for more.

    Yes, you do. I admit it. There are people I enjoy getting into pain and hurt. Just the same as you do.

    I don't think I've ever even listened to this guy, but I gather he's one of those well paid entertainers who's job it is to divide people and make them angry for ratings

    Pretty sad existence if you ask me, but hey, at least he got paid well

    The same people who made excuses for him calling Chelsea Clinton "The White House Dog" are crying crocodile tears over "insensitive" (politically incorrect?) remarks. No one deserves lung cancer (well maybe someone does, but I won't say he does) but he's not someone who's loss I will mourn.

    Now go back and take the same stance in every thread about murdered civilians, children tortured to death, and women raped, and you might convince someone that you know what 'class' is.

    Exactly. And this is what separates the good folks from the ones above.

    Feeling bad about Rush Limbaugh getting cancer doesn't somehow magically absolve you of all the asshole things you've said in your checkered history :async:

    It's not checkered. Checkered includes white.

    I'm consistent. If lifelong smokers acted shocked that they developed lung cancer, I'd find their attitude mildly humorous considering what we know about the disease. Doesn't mean I'd wish it upon them though.

    Rush is an earlier, less-batshit crazy version of Alex Jones. A lot of the nonsense he espouses isn't stuff he personally believes, but rather stuff he knows will bring ratings and therefore $$$.

    I notice you didn't say I'm wrong about your position on universal health care. :chris:

    Can't help but notice how you downgraded from "laughing in their face" to "mildly humorous".....

    What exactly about calling gay people "aids cocktails" made you a good person?

    I just find it interesting that you're calling out other people when you have your own issues

    Stones, glass houses, etc
