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.

    Tests reveal 'nothing wrong' with Limbaugh's heart

    ...assuming he actually has one.

    The overwhelming negative publicity that he generates was probably the reason Rush faked a heart attack to garner sympathy. The world would be a far better place without the Rush Limbaughs of the world.

    What they found was no heart at all.

    ".....Doctors gave Limbaugh an angiogram Thursday that revealed no evidence of any arterial or coronary matter...... "

    ".....The cause of his pain – which he called "very real" – has been determined to be a lack of compassion, overwhelming greed, and an overall obnoxious behavior......"

    That's good. Now, while he's in for tests, can they:

    1. Test for a brain.
    2. Look for traces of common sense.
    3. Find out who took out his conscience and where it might be.
    4. Add an ounce or two of compassion for those who don't have the luxury of $400 million contracts.

    Since he doesn't have one, we all knew that. But what is really wrong with him is his head and his mouth.

    I can only imagine the comments to follow on this topic. I for one will say I'm glad he's ok. I don't always agree with Rush on his delivery, but I do think he is the beacon for freedom of speech. If you don't like what he says don't listen, but don't take away his right to say it!

    Who cares? Really, every time the president goes anywhere the Rethugs try to steal the limelight. Remember the press conference in Oslo and now Rush in Hawaii. No one cares about them, they almost ran this country in the ground, and now they're trying to steal it back so they can finish the job.

    Rush needs to have a difficult time in life. I don't wish him ill, but I do wish he would go away–maybe to Gitmo for a vacation.

    There's plenty wrong with Rush and his followers. Too bad he didn't come out of the hospital feet first!

    We have only two words for Rush Limbaugh and the rest of his anti American Fan club.

    Wouldn't he have to have a heart in the first place for there to be anything wrong with it? I think he's safe as far as that's concerned. But maybe the shriveled black lump behind his rib cage was shrinking up a little smaller and that gave him a twinge of pain.

    The problem with Rush's heart is that the fat boy just doesn't have one and he gets pains because something powerful is missing from his body.

  18. I am Newt Limebaugh

    please...please....I already knew that that mr. blowhard had nothing wrong.

    First of all you have to have a heart which he does not....and all this was ....well....another stage to promote himself.

    Diagnosis...no heart no heart attack......pain caused from eating pain killers and smoking imported cigars....not made in America.

    Rush Slimeball......will succumb one day...like the rest of us....but he will be met at the gates of hell for all the hate he has spread

    There's nothing wrong for you, its the best 400 million could buy. Perhaps the pain in your heart was the last piece of moral ethics dying since you've sold your soul.

    I think you might find that it is very selfish, greedy, & full of hatred. Nothing wrong? I don't think so.
