Rush Rushed To Hospital With Chest Pains

Awful news coming tonight from  Honolulu:

Conservative radio talk host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a Honolulu hospital on Wednesday afternoon with chest pains, sources told KITV.Paramedics responded to the call at 2:41 p.m. at the Kahala Hotel and Resort.

Limbaugh suffered from chest pains, sources said. Paramedics treated him and took him to Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.He was seen golfing at Waialae Country Club earlier this week. The country club is next to the Kahala Hotel and Resort.The radio show host had been in the islands during the holidays. Coincidentally, his visit comes at a time when two of the nation’s most powerful Democrats, President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are also staying in Hawaii.

It didn’t take long for some ghoulish vultures on the left to start circling and crowing, as noticed by iOWNTHEWORLD’s Snark and Boobs:

Some on the Left, however, are on full display as the hateful, creepy people that they truly are. They are wishing for the worst and are almost giddy with excitement, as the comments at TMZ indicate. Some examples:

I hope he dies.

Not even ashamed at how nasty and vicious  they are.

Hey, you  idiots who are praying for Rush to have a black doctor…did you know one of his best friends, James Golden, AKA Bo Snerdley,  happens to be black? Did you know that his co-host on Thursday is his black friend, Professor Walter Williams?

Hello? Why do you care what color Rush’s doctor is? Rush doesn’t.

UPDATE IV:

The Rush Limbaugh Show website issues a statement:

ALERT: Rush was admitted to a Honolulu hospital today and is resting comfortably after suffering chest pains. Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes. He will keep you updated via RushLimbaugh.com and on Thursday’s radio program.

Speaking of Scott Brown…

William A. Jacobson of Legal Insurrection notes that MA State Senator, Scott Brown, who’s hoping to fill Teddy’s all important US Senate seat in a special election January 19, is “winning the online battle”.

In fact a Scott Brown in Australia has been the be the unwitting beneficiary of all the enthusiasm:

As the Boston Globe reports, in the past few days, as @ScottBrownMA has gained momentum through bloggers and twitterers and other social media, @ScottBrown has been inundated with people seek @ScottBrownMA.

Brown’s Facebook page has 8689 fans versus 6255 at Coakley‘s Facebook page. The BrownBrigade online network has 2517 members; I could find nothing similar for Coakley.

You can join the fray by following  @ScottBrownMA on Twitter, and becoming a fan of his Facebook page, linked above.

FYI: I listened in on a conference call with Brown, yesterday, and was surprised to learn that those rumors about the GOP leaving him in the cold were greatly exaggerated. In fact, “Don’t believe everything you read” is a direct quote from Brown. He wanted us to know that the GOP wasn’t stiffing him. But he is being greatly outspent by his well connected opponent, MA Atty Gen Martha Coakley, who has special interest, and  union $$$ backing her.

Scott Brown has something she doesn’t have, however…and that’s momentum.

You can donate to his campaign here, any time, but a “money bomb” is being planned for Jan. 11  for the last stretch of the campaign. You can go make a pledge, now, too.

Whoa:

Oh my… I just discovered this strictly by accident, I swear, but HUBBA HUBBA!

Long before he was a politician, the Republican candidate vying for Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat posed nude for the centerfold of Cosmo. Scott Brown won our “America’s Sexiest Man” contest and appeared in the June 1982 issue. In those days he was a 22-year-old law student at Boston College who was cramming for finals just days before stripping down for our photographer.

“Here at Cosmo we’ve had bachelors go on to be actors, models, and reality show stars, so we’re thrilled that one has gone on to become a politician,” says Kate White, Cosmo’s editor in chief. Obviously we know how to pick ’em. This particular bachelor has always had political ambitions and even admitted to being “a bit of a patriot” when we interviewed him.

Aw!

Safe for work (I think…)pictures at link.

Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings Hasn’t Been Fired Yet?

This isn’t a gay/straight issue. It’s a *creepy, pervvy, cultural Marxist who recommends hardcore kiddie porn to school aged kids being put in charge of “Safe Schools” by Obama and their creepy defenders (Media Mutters)* issue.

Gateway Pundit and Andrew Breitbart are  not letting up on their vendetta against Jennings, and I thank God for that. Nothing good can come from having a person like this in a position of authority over children.

The latest via Gateway Pundit:

This week Mass Resistance reported that Kevin Jennings was promoting this porn books to kids for years:

Here’s proof that Kevin Jennings was certainly aware that his organization, GLSEN, recommended porn books for teens.  He had recommended them himself in his 1994 high school reader Becoming Visible porn publisher Alyson Books). On p. 278 in his Questions/Activities section for Chapter 17, he wrote:

15. Other resources for reading are Bennett Singer’s Growing Up Gay, Ann Heron’s One Teenager in Ten: Writings by Gay and Lesbian Youth, Aaron Frick’s Reflections of a Rock Lobster: A Story of Growing Up Gay, and Paul Monette’s Becoming a Man. Films include Robert King’s The Disco Years and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, based on Jeanette Winterson’s autobiographical novel.

These questionable books (haven’t looked at the films yet…) have been described by Linda Harvey in 2002here), NARTH (late 1990s), and more recently at Gateway Pundit/BigGovernment.com (Dec. 2009).

One of the books personally recommended by Jennings; Reflections of a Rock Lobster, (where gay sex between kindergartners in the school bathroom is treated as normal), is examined over at Gateway Pundit.

As always extreme content warning.

Various And Sundry Items

I’m having a hard time coming up with something/anything to write about. Not that there’s any lack of  newsworthy items to write about – I seem to be suffering from bloggers block. Part of it is because of the constant interruptions of having the kids at home, and the time I spent taking down my Christmas decor, today.

But most of it is the fact that so many things are happening - there’s almost too much news, and I don’t even know where to start, or what to say. I despair because there are so many other bloggers  out there who have already said it better than I can, anyway.

So I’m in a funk…which hopefully won’t last long.

***

But in the meantime…I thought you might enjoy these bizarro headlines:

Man, clad in underwear and sandals, kills deer with stick

Can’t a guy push a shopping cart full of bongs down the street?

Lincoln police: Man put cat in washing machine

Police: Resident Fires Warning Shot As Partially Nude, Mumbling Man Approaches Him

***

Then there’s this.

I didn’t want to make a huge deal out of it… I’ve noticed those lines on the side of Obama’s head, before…and didn’t think much of it – chalked it up to a bad haircut, but now that they mention it,  it does looks like scar tissue, and the Freepers are asking if Obama’s had brain surgery

***

On a sort of related note…not related to brain surgery per se, but perhaps to Obama’s brain – People are wondering what’s happened to the golden boy’s noted oratory skills.

Neo Neocon says Suddenly, Obama’s not so fluent any more:

Obama was always a fluid if vapid speechmaker, although his off-the-cuff statements featured a lot of hemming and hawing. But I’ve noticed something that seems new: hesitancy even when he speaks from a prepared text.

Obama now seems to go off-teleprompter more often—perhaps because he’s been critiqued so much for its use—and when reading from notes on a lectern he stops and starts, as well as using a tennis-match-like repetitive back and forth movement of his head.

What’s more, Obama’s disfluencies have an odd cadence, coming at times that seem unnatural, as though he’s distracted and not even thinking about what he’s saying but rather merely reading it from a text he’s never seen before. Is he nervous? Lying? Nervous about lying? Nervous about being caught in lying? Aware that the gift he’s relied on his entire life is going or perhaps even gone, now that he needs it most?

Vanderleun has noticed it, too: The Emperor’s New Speech Impediment

And the Anchoress has lots to say about it, as well: Obama and Doing vs Being – UPDATED

My own two cents: I think Obama is very good at reading inspiring sounding but not necessarily meaningful words with a commanding voice. He is most comfortable with the teleprompter, as apparently, he has excellent vision, and prefers to  read the words with a level head. Now, he’s learning on the job how to read from note cards, but the main problem for him is, the subject matter. The main issue he’s been dealing with recently, is just not that alluring to him. Now he has to deal with stuffy-old, real-world problems while he’d rather be dealing with hopey-changey stuff, like; saving the economy by making sure everyone in the country has health insurance, or saving the world from horrors of the climate by taxing us all into oblivion. That’s why I think his most recent speeches have sounded robotical, perfunctory, and flat.

He’s just not that into the whole GWOT dealio.

On a totally unrelated note. Did anyone else notice a dearth of Christmas lights, this year? Reeko emailed:

My family drove an entire loop around Dallas and through downtown on Christmas night. Several generations in the vehicle, and we all commented that this year, there were sparse Christmas decorations and lights out everywhere. Most glaringly unlit was the downtown skyline. None of us had ever seen the skyline that dark at Christmas!  We even drove down to City Hall to see the usual “festivus” type park ornaments etc, but nada. nothing. zip. This year, there were not a single jinglebell or wreath or anything on any city light pole or building that we saw except Nieman Marcus. For those who don’t know, Dealey Plaza is never decorated, out of respect for its solemness i suppose, yet even the Bank America building had their distinctive green lights TURNED OFF! the only other times that folks in my family remember the skyline building lights being turned off was after tragedies such as 9/11 and the JFK assasination.  yet OFF they were… ditto the Fountain Place (the pyramid-like building that was almost bombed back in September), Elm Place, Plaza of the Americas, Magnolia, Adolphus… the only lighted building was the Renaissance Tower with its distinctive white cross pattern – nothing else like their usual Christmassy red and green. Even the Reunion Tower Ball was just solid white – no intricate patterns playing, flashing around like during a Stars or Mav game, or any of their colored lights…

I  noticed a general Christmas morass, this year, too.

Thanks for the linkage, to my blogging sister, Pundette, a fellow sufferer of writer’s block.

Heh…Obama’s scar got the Zipster’s attention, too. Says he has a surgery scar just like it…
