I have stayed away from politics and social commentary lately. The state of things enrages me and disappoints me. Since I've been overwhelmed with personal and health issues I find I can't always be - uh - fair and balanced.
Then again I could declare myself fair and balanced and then go off like an ignorant loon, FOX does it 24/7.
I decided to use something ridiculous and inconsequential for my return to politics.
The big bloated blowhard that is Rush Limbaugh declared on his show that he will leave the United States if health care reform is passed.
Well Hallelujah! Amen! Bring out the champagne and streamers!
Maybe he can organize a junket and take Sean and Bill and Sarah and Glenn with him.
A caller asked Rush where he'd go. Costa Rica he declared.
Ahhh the comical irony of the ignorant. Costa Rica has universal health care.
I learned from Wikipedia that one of the five fastest growing industries in Costa Rica is pharmaceuticals - a junkie always knows where to go for their next fix.
Perhaps they'll give him his pain killers and anti-anxiety drugs and his Viagra free. Or at least legally. That way he could stop obtaining them illegally here in the states.
God Speed Rush - don't let the door hit you in the giant ass you talk out of on your way out.
EDIT on March 11 at 7 AM: I have read accounts stating that Limbaugh never said he would move to Costa Rica but that he would seek medical care there while still residing in the US. To me that just makes him even more of an asshat.
