Rush Limbaugh has been hospitalized in Hawaii after suffering chest pains — this according to KITV Hawaii.
According to KITV, paramedics responded to a call at the Kahala Hotel in Honolulu at 2:41 PM and transported Rush to Queens Medical Center.
According to the report, Rush was in “serious condition” when he arrived to the hospital.
Attempts to reach a rep for Limbaugh were unsuccessful.
My thoughts and prayers are with Rush. I hope they are classifying it as “serious condition” as standard procedure only, like they usually do when anything chest related occurs. I hope he recovers fully and swiftly.
Some on the Left, however, are on full display as the hateful, creepy people that they truly are. They are wishing for the worst and are almost giddy with excitement, as the comments at TMZ indicate. Some examples:
I hope he dies.

The vile comments, rejoicing in someone’s serious condition, are also rampant on Twitter. I have yet to venture over to HuffPo or Kos because I don’t think that I have water hot enough to wash the icky off of me afterward.
By the way, it’s not a good argument for wanting to take over our health care, Left – wishing DEATH on those with whom you disagree.
Stay Classy, Left. You disgust me.
UPDATE: The TMZ audience is the Jerry Springer audience. I expect nothing less from them. I perused the Daily Kos, to their credit, many are wishing him well. Others are saying he is getting what he deserves for being out of shape, (many of the clueless are still calling him fat, umm, do you keep up with current events at all?) Many comments are talking about karma. I didn’t see any saying they hope he dies, For the most part they are treating him better than I would have suspected. I’m off top Huff Po. -bigfurhat
Update: Huff Po is a mixed bag. There are no posts wishing him to die (many are complaining that those are being censored.) Many posts are wishing him well. Many are calling the nasty twitter feeds great. Many are saying not to stoop to the level that the right did when Kennedy died (still not realizing that Kennedy was a vile, human being.) I’d like to say two things here, get well, Rush. Ted Kennedy is still dead. – bigfurhat
