Rush Limbaugh has advanced stage lung cancer.

Reported by NPR and NY Daily News.

The decent thing to do regarding any human being with a diagnosis like that is to wish them well. I can't bring myself to do that. I will withhold some of the more vile thoughts that come to mind.

Isn't he the one who mocked Michael J Fox for his parkinson's? When Fox appeared in public on behalf of stem cell research without his meds so people could see the effects of the disorder, Limbaugh accused him of faking it and made fun of him.

How tempting to let Limbaugh know how public cruelty feels.

2. Well, there is a bigger person somewhere out there with well-wishes for him...

I am not that person but will refrain from my usual Trump-level vitriol and give the "tots and pears" level of Susan Collins concern...which is to effectively say one does not give a fuck when saying so out loud would be inappropriate.

Guess I have watched too much Impeachment coverage because I accidentally said the quiet part out loud there...

4. I hope that in the time he has left he will feel remorse and ask for forgiveness

I hope that in the time he has left he will feel remorse and attempt to atone for the terrible way.

Yes, he mocked Michael J. Fox as well as accused him of faking his Parkinson's disease. He called Chelsea Clinton "ugly" when she was a child. He spent three days calling Sandra Fluke a "slut" and demanding to see her "sex video" when she called for religious colleges to offer contraception in their insurance plans. He assisted in making hate and hypocrisy mainstream.

9. I doubt if he will ever see the wrongs he has done or the ugliness

he has spewed and the hatred he has encouraged in others. I doubt if he will ever see and realize the harm he has done.

Despicable man...but I will keep my thoughts to me self. While I do not wish him harm, I am thankful that at times karma hits a deserving target.

12. I forgot to mention that he also mocked Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health too

There undoubtedly were many others. He and trump were cut from the same cloth.

I agree about karma.

14. Maybe being hateful, evil, vile and obnoxious...

...at times, those who engage in those traits get what they deserve.

What a poor excuse for a human being. What a legacy he has left...hate and ugliness.

5. That's what you get when you ignore all the warnings and are a heavy tobacco smoker

 

Heavy cigar and cigarette smoker for years.

Big support of big tobacco.

Karma is a bitch.

6. Who gives a shit?

Limbaugh has been poisoning our politics and culture for decades. He lies and smears Democrats and women with his bullshit. He has been a cancer on our society for far too long.

I don't give a damn if he's healthy or not except for this: If he dies, then he's off the air.

8. I just noticed that there already is another

thread about this. I've been offline and away from news for a while, so I just heard and read about it.

I've known friends and close relatives who died from cancer. It is terrible. But I think of his vicious cruelty to other people with illnesses and the suffering he brought to so many others for other reasons, and I have to force myself not to rejoice at the news, which would only make me as bad as him.

I would not criticize anyone did express schaudenfreud at this news, though.
