Tests reveal 'nothing wrong' with Limbaugh's heart

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/03/25/art.getty.rush.limbaugh.jpg caption="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.

    Of course there is nothing wrong with his heart. HE DOESN'T have one.

    (The funny thing is, I am sure he'd take that as a compliment).

    Maybe his conscience was hurting him? He's still on drugs for back pain ... could be delusional again... surprised to find that they could even discover a heart ...

    Look in the mirror, dear Rush ... overweight and all that foaming at the mouth can not be good for your blood pressure.

    Nothing's wrong except it's three sizes too small.

    I knew he was faking his heart condition. Limbaugh's Narcissistic ego will lead him to anything that will draw attention to himself.

    I really wanted him to have a condition serious enough to keep his foul mouth off the airwaves.

    Good, we need people who are not afraid to inform the public about the shenanigans the liberals are up to.

    Limbaugh should retire, prune his rose bushes, and hire someone to write his autobiography.

    The "very real" diagnosis: His heart is three sizes too small.

    Rush, Thank God that you are all right. Please be safe and healthy. Our whole nation counts on you. It is because of you, we can express ourselves. We have a big monster in the White House that we have deal with in our every day lives.

    Did they Test his Brain?

    If they test his brain they will find Filth.

    Did they Test his Mouth?

    If they test his mouth they will find it the Loudest in the World.

    And his doctors are forbidden from contradicting him.

    If Rush said it, that doesn't make it false, but his saying it should make everyone suspicious of its credibility.

    Good for him, he has good health insurance, easy for him to say there is nothing wrong with our health care system. His story would be different if he would not have any insurance. Maybe is pain in the chest was all that hot air in his head. Anyway, happy New year..

    He can't have a heart attack – the man doesn't have a heart.

    Of course not! LimpBalm doesn't have a heart, Its all in his head. The stress that we as Americans are going to go to he11 and all the crap he thinks about. Maybe it's the aftereffects from all those painkiller addictions coming back to haunt him. THEY DO have a way of screwing up a persons body when abused.

    Rush has no heart. He is a neo-conservative scrooge who cares not for the unemployed, homeless, hungry, or sick.
