This week, talk show host Rush Limbaugh announced that he is suffering from lung cancer.
We all know Limbaugh. He has spent an entire career
attacking minorities, telling lies, smearing his opponents, and gloating over his success (complete with pictures
of huge cigars dangling from his lips) in the name of "American exceptionalism."
Some of his activities included referring
to Obama as a "man-child" (boy) and pushing
birther lies about him, making a multitude of racist comments
, spending several days describing different ways how college student Sandra Fluke
is a "slut" simply because she spoke out about the need for birth control, claiming that actor Michael J. Fox was faking
his Parkinson's Disease, and last but not least:
Making fun of people
afflicted with and dying from AIDS by playing the Dionne Warwick song, "I Know I'll Never Love This Way Again."
Since his announcement, there has been an outpouring of well-wishers eager to express their support of him during his crisis.
