When asked recently about where he’d receive his upcoming heart transplant if Congress passed health care reform, noted drug addict, Rush Limbaugh stated, “I don’t know. I’ll just tell you this, if this passes and it’s five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented—I am leaving the country. I’ll go to Costa Rica.” That's a smart move given Costa Rica’s life expectancy surpasses that of the United States. And many hackey-sacking socialists — in the US and abroad — attribute this to Costa Rica's [gasp!] socialized medicine. In an effort to hold Rush to his half-thought, drug-addled proclamations, the website A Ticket for Rush has emerged to remind him of his soundbite'd promise.
A Ticket For Rush, celebrating its fourth day online, has already gathered over $2,500 for a one-way, first class plane ticket (and potentially living accommodations!) for the big boy to fly to Costa Rica. If Limbaugh turns down the ticket, all proceeds will go to his favorite organization, Planned Parenthood. Limbaugh, after grabbing hold of this news as if it were a bottle of OxyContin, announced that he’d need more than $1,400 for a bottle of wine on that baby-blood fueled plane. Hell, we may need to load up on even more wine to lower his blood pressure, since we don’t want his heart to give out before he experiences socialized health care.
Let El Rushbo know that you are so proud of his selflessness to contribute to a government-run health care system, or just remind him that's he a bloated, loud-mouthed reject, by emailing him at ElRushbo@eibnet.com.
