Karma is a b*tch! For all of you defending him, you are CLUELESS! Do some research of your own. Do you think someone that makes fun of someone with Parkinson's is a nice person? Do you think that someone who is addicted to oxycontin and god know what else is really the person you should listen to and worship? He is an instigator who is an idol to people who don't know any better.

He won't die... he has health insurance. Here's hoping we have worse medical care than most European countries works in our favor!

How many oxycontins did he crush up this time and snort up his nose?
He could be in withdrawl symptoms because his drug dealer is not use to delievering out in Hawaii.
What was he doing? Did he go there to deface Obama's Grandmother's grave? He was probably trying to pee on it, and God struck him down.

Knew it wouldn't take long for all the "open-minded" freaks to start attacking Rush. People who condemn him have more than likely not spent any time listening to him on the radio. What a bunch of pathetic losers for wanting this man to die. We love you Rush!

Honestly? You guys hope a man dies? Wow. Doesn't matter WHO he is or what he believes in. You guys want a person to die. You are the reason why people are terrible.

Obviously if you can't spell "racist" you should not call one a racist whom you don't know. Sad how people hate someone they don't even know. Rush is a good man. Loves this country and its people.

Sick of both Jon & Kate    

Our prayers are with you, Rush. Hope you're up and around soon and continue to inform all of the ignorant folks out there (many of them who have responded to this news) what an idiot that fool in the White House is. Before you dopes out there critize Rush, you should listen to what he says. Anyone who still supports Obama is a fool.

Hope he's got good health insurance, I'd hate to see this POS have to have the American people pay for his coverage.

If he can hold on for just two more days, his heirs won't have to pay any taxes on his sizeable estate...

Wow, and I thought liberals were so tolerant. I'm not even a Rush fan, but this man has made a career out of your left wing politics and you still don't get it. The most narrow minded people I've ever met in my life have been liberals. I wish for Rush what I would any other of imbeciles - health.

Racists always support fellow racists and keep a large supply of white sheets in their closets.
