Tests reveal 'nothing wrong' with Limbaugh's heart

Rush Limbaugh said Friday that doctors 'found absolutely nothing wrong' with his heart.
Rush Limbaugh said Friday that doctors 'found absolutely nothing wrong' with his heart.

(CNN) – Tests that were performed on Rush Limbaugh after he was admitted to a Hawaii hospital for chest pains "found absolutely nothing wrong," the conservative talk show host said Friday.

"It was a blessing," Limbaugh told reporters at The Queen's Medical Center where he was admitted Wednesday.

Doctors gave Limbaugh an angiogram Thursday that revealed no evidence of arterial or coronary disease, he said. The cause of his pain - which he called "very real" - has not been determined.

    You mean, Limbaugh HAS a heart?

    Did anybody think to check his head?

    Doctors later commented that they couldn't find evidence of a heart attack, due to their inability to locate his heart.

    Now I know this is a lie because Limbaugh has no heart.

    Actually, the US Healthcare System failed Mr. Limbaugh. In spite of all the tests, the medical professionals missed the obvious – his heart is just 3 sizes too small....

    So he brags that "there is nothing wrong with our health system."

    So I guess he is right...if you are mega-rich and go to a good hospital.

    What about all the poor hospitals? What about the poor people with no insurance? What a bloated pig.

    Also, if the health care he received was so great, why can't they figure out what's wrong with him?

    There is nothing wrong with his heart because he has no heart.

    When I saw the headline "Limbaugh admitted to hospital w/chest pains" I'm ashamed to say it but I was hoping the next one would follow in succession, "Limbaugh D-E-A-D."
    Maybe he'll change, that's all we can pray for, instead of letting him drag us down into that nightmare world of blame, seething anger and delusional self righteousness that fuel the Republican agenda.

    Very relieved to hear Rush is in no danger. America needs him. The Real America, that is.

    Of course there's nothing wrong. He doesn't have a heart.

    I am glad that he is well, but it is time for the news agencies to start covering credible people and quit giving extremists like Limbaugh coverage he doesn't deserve. He spews so much hatred, and falsehoods that he reminds me of Islamic fundamentalists like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad .

    It's because he doesn't have one.
