I love the way that a tragedy like this has the power to bring people together again.

This is the busiest SE post for ages.

The death of each right-wing agitator is an SE clan meet. A chance to get together and catch up, before we all go on our ways again.

Every time we're a little fatter and a little balder and forgot a little more html.

As accolades and legacies go, being a titan of conservative radio is about as impressive as being a champion pedophile or a record-setting arsonist.

I feel sorry for his family.

Not because he just died, just in general.

First Neil Peart, now Limbaugh. It's been a bad couple of years for Rush fans.

I think I have used this line (which isn't mine) here before:

He was killed by a tumor that was much less malignant than his views.

When Commerce Sec. Ron Brown was killed in a plane crash I believe in Bosnia, the Republicans in the House, who were literally calling for his trial for treason the week before, all came out with effusive statements of praise post mortem.

At that time I said maybe we should be nicer when people were alive, but that was 25 years ago. Now I settle for talking about people after they die the same way i did when they were alive.

I also always believed that the karmic burden of the world would be lessened considerably by the death of this terrible, terrible person. I was right. Enjoy lake of fire, asshole.

It's a tragedy that a fine cancer was struck down in its prime by Rush Limbaugh. I hate to think how it must have suffered.

Had banana for breakfast and egg sandwiches with red habanero hot sauce for lunch. It wasn't too hot, but it's only Habanero in name and it was actually just cayenne pepper with mixed in spices to make it hotter.

I'll give him as much respect in death that he gave others in life. Which is to say, not a damn bit. Enjoy the void, fucker.

care to fund my trip to defile his grave?

Charge people to do things to it on their behalf. Piss on it for them 100 bucks, shit on it 500. Sing ding dong the witch is dead, 25 bucks. Etc.
