Boo-hoo. I don't wish ill on him, but the fool has been living an unhealthy life for a long time as though personal responsibility does not exist for himself--just for other people. If you live like an idiot, this is what happens, and this will be the price you pay.

Personal accountability, Limbaugh. Can you handle it now?

LMFAO @ James. I was kind of thinking the same thing, but didn't want to seem tacky by putting it into words. I wonder if 2009 will take one more celebrity before the year ends? Gosh it's been a rough year for celebs.
