How telling that the people who are wishing Rush to die are the same people advocating that THEY be in charge of administering our healthcare because of their great compassion.

Talk about closet totalitarians.

God Bless Rush.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. I'm not exactly proud of the way I feel but I'm not alone in hoping this hate monger caps off 2009's celebrity death parade. This is one that wouldn't inspire much slow singing and flower bringing.

Unfortunately, I think he's too mean and stubborn to die. Besides, all the sheeple that follow him and his nonsense would just find a way to blame it on Obama.

Idiots    

@ Kathryn
Don't kid yourself. The people who hate Rush probably can't even read the constitution. They hear that Rush is a "racist" just like EVERYONE else who dislikes Obama. Who cares, we'll all be in the debt his idiotic party is creating because these ignorant idiots voted him in office. If they are happy hoping Rush dies, then it just goes to the show the kind of people they are. No surprise there.

@Tabitha---again with the useless bashing! A man is gravely ill. He is someone's son, brother, uncle, cousin. Yet you show no compassion, only hateful ignorance. So much for the "left" being the compassionate, evolved ones...

Btw--How exactly is he promoting hate? How is his criticism of gov't policies constitute a deathwish for him?? This is what I don't understand about the left. You guys are such hypocrites and hate mongers in your own right!!
