After comments like these, I wonder if people will wish him well next time he's in the hospital:

"Limbaugh said the earthquake has played into Obama’s hands, allowing the president to look “compassionate” and “humanitarian” while at the same time bolstering his standing in both the “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country.”

He added: “We've already donated to Haiti. It’s called the U.S. income tax.” "

He's also not sexist either.

Quote:
Confronted with some of that criticism, Limbaugh slammed a female caller as “closed-minded.”

“What I’m illustrating here is that you’re a blockhead,” Limbaugh shot back. “What I’m illustrating here is that you’re a closed-minded bigot who is ill-informed...Your mind is totally closed. You have tampons in your ears.

Actually I just found out I need a tooth implant which is going to set me back about $6,000. What can you do but pony up the cash and figure what you'll have to do without this year.

Sorry Candy and Porsche.

I flat out refuse to do that, and I guess if that unfortunate day arrives, I guess it's $6,000+ for me too.
Beyond the four wisdom teeth I've had removed, I also have one fake tooth and one still existing chipped tooth, as well as a poorly aligned jaw despite three years of braces. So, I can relate to both of your tooth/dental financial woes. Good luck to both of you.

I would shed crocodile tears for him.
Regarding HSA's, this year I decided to try this option at work. I hope I do not regret it.

My dad listens to him all the time, and yet he is the kind of guy who goes out of his way to help the woman next door who is elderly and in poor health. He's always driving her to doctor appointments and other places. It makes no sense to me whatsoever that he could tolerate two minutes of listening to someone with so little compassion for others.

Rush is a preach to the choir type of personality. And the thing is, he knows this...

I thing there are two maybe three types of Rush listeners. One listens to him because they believe his core "beliefs" but aren't necessarily as extreme as him and they dismiss his hatred. Another listens to him and defends him... they claim they aren't racist or sexist but somewhere they agree with him to a certain degree.

Keepin' it classy, he can't help but comment on Obama's proposed banking legislation.

Quote:
“To some people, banker is a code word for Jewish; and guess who Obama is assaulting? He’s assaulting bankers. He’s assaulting money people. And a lot of those people on Wall Street are Jewish. So I wonder if there’s – if there’s starting to be some buyer’s remorse there.”
Which was immediately rebuked:

Quote:
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:

Rush Limbaugh reached a new low with his borderline anti-Semitic comments about Jews as bankers, their supposed influence on Wall Street, and how they vote.

Limbaugh’s references to Jews and money in a discussion of Massachusetts politics were offensive and inappropriate. While the age-old stereotype about Jews and money has a long and sordid history, it also remains one of the main pillars of anti-Semitism and is widely accepted by many Americans. His notion that Jews vote based on their religion, rather than on their interests as Americans, plays into the hands of anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists.

When he comes to understand why his words were so offensive and unacceptable, Limbaugh should apologize.

INDY will come in and say, "I don't think Rush's comments were racist at all".

Which would be true because Jews aren't a race.

What a douchenozzle.
