Don’t Let The Peninsula Hit You in the Ass on Your Way Out

From seattlepi:

He has already decamped from New York to Florida, but radio’s most right-thinking host – Rush Limbaugh – is threatening to move to Costa Rica if health care reform is passed by Congress and goes into effect.

Limbaugh told listeners almost a year ago that he wants President Obama to fail. But now, as the health care debate heads for a climax in Congress, he seems more than ever to fear Obama’s biggest potential success.

Asked by a caller on Tuesday what he would do if health care passes, Limbaugh gave this response:

“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.”

The pasture on the other side of the fence always appears greener, but there’s a question of whether Limbaugh would be happy in Costa Rica.

Limbaugh has claimed that global warming is a hoax and plays the theme from “Born Free” before he lampoons endangered species protection.

Costa Rica has pace-setting conservation policies, set aside large national parks and become a global magnet for eco-tourism.


Costa Rica has no army, and has avoided the military coups that have seized power in other Central American and South American countries. It has elected social democrats as president.

Before you start celebrating, kids, Rushbo is already declaring that everyone who heard what he said completely misunderstood. From ALL ACCESS:

RUSH LIMBAUGH’s remark to a caller that he would go to COSTA RICA for health care if Pres. OBAMA’s health care plan passes has gotten attention from news organizations around the world, but LIMBAUGH says that the reporters misinterpreted what he said.


The remark led the HUFFINGTON POST to interpret the comment as saying that he would move to COSTA RICA rather than go there to see the doctor, an interpretation picked up by news organizations and bloggers worldwide.

On his show TODAY (3/9), LIMBAUGH responded, saying that the article’s interpretation of his comment “has been turned into I’m going to leave the country for COSTA RICA and move there if Obamacare passes.


“I said, ‘Look, there are insurance companies that don’t want to be put out of business.” We’ve talked to them on the program. I’ve talked to them privately. They are establishing health care clinics with quality doctors in places like COSTA RICA. They’re going to continue to sell policies to people who have the ability to fly down there and get treatment. If I have to get thrown into this massive government health care insurance business and end up going to the driver’s license office every day when I need to go to the doctor, yeah, I’ll go to COSTA RICA for treatment, not move there. […].”


Later, LIMBAUGH added, “You know, I am in such hot water now. People in NEW ZEALAND are sending me e-mails: ‘How come you’re not coming here? You’ve been telling everybody you’re moving to NEW ZEALAND and now you’re saying you’re going to COSTA RICA.’ I did not say I’m going to COSTA RICA. The stupid people in the media who cannot trouble themselves to read my transcripts or listen to this program, listen to out of context stuff. I was asked yesterday where will I go for health care if OBAMA’s health care passes, and I said if doctors here are not permitted to form private practice little clinics with individuals paying a fee, a retainer, and for services, then I’ll go to COSTA RICA to get major medical health care. I didn’t say I would move there. They’re all over these websites: ‘LIMBAUGH says he’d move to COSTA RICA. Why, what more incentive do we have to pass health care to get LIMBAUGH to move to COSTA RICA?’ Now, NEW ZEALAND is reading about this and they’re all bent out of shape that I’m somehow not coming there, all because of the stupid media. They are not competing for me because COSTA RICA doesn’t think I’m going to move there, which I wouldn’t. Gosh.”

Yeah, people in New Zealand are dying to have you move there. I read they have a shortage of lying bloviating pigs.

  1. Whine, whine, whine.

    Out of context … blah, blah …

    Shouldn’t a “highly-trained broadcast professional” be able to come up with something better than that?

    Or maybe he could say things clearly when he’s on the air so that he doesn’t always have to try to re-frame it in a different context later?

    Limbaugh’s a waste of perfectly good oxygen.

    • someone who makes his living in communications should make sure that what he’s saying is what he means. nobody took anything out of context, but heaven forbid he should admit that he was not clear. he takes something that should be inconsequential and turns it into a big deal. that way, he keeps on being the victim.

    That old blowhard bastard could afford to go anywhere to get healthcare. When he needed to belch or fart, but ended up being a waste of Hawaii’s medical resources when he had chest pains, of course he shot off his mouth about how great the American health care system is. Well, if you’re a millionaire from lying your mouth off and stirring up a bunch of uneducated gun lovers, you could kiss the insurance company CEOs asses!

    And when the bastard was in the hospital, be damned if you didn’t have to hear his butt-kissing buddies saying that they were praying for him. What kind of person prays for an SOB like that and what sort of God saves a bastard like that? I was hoping he’d strike the mother f****er down dead for all the mean-spirited lying he does. But no, the Repubs have hogtied God for their own needs and claim they’re God’s Own Party. HAH!

    • what rushbo was telling his moronic dittoheads is that he doesn’t give a damn about them and their health care needs, because he’s rich, and he will always be able to get medical attention. when he was in hawaii and lauding the medical care he got there, he forgot to mention that hawaii has a law that says an employee who works 20 hours or more a week must be covered by his/her employer. he also didn’t mention that, under this system, hawaiians live longer than mainlanders, and health care premiums are tied for the lowest with north dakota. their medicare costs are also lower per patient. there’s more here.

      Awesome title! He’s so loathesome. Not everyone can afford to be so capricious and whine that they’re going to expatriate.

      I’m not frickin’ leaving ever. These bitches are just all gonna have to change to accommodate me. πŸ™‚

      • so glad you like the title! i was rather proud of that one. πŸ™‚

        people like him don’t want to pay their share of taxes, but they’ll be first in line to take advantage of any research done by the national institutes of health or the cdc. remember how cindy lou mccain was bellyaching about how more federal dollars should go towards finding a cure for migraines? if she didn’t have migraines, she wouldn’t give a damn about anyone else who did. she also doesn’t want the government touching any her millions to pay for the research either.

          My great grandma used to say, don’t let the door knob hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

          (That’s where I learned all my congeniality and stuff. πŸ˜‰ )

  4. the phat phuck (who lives on mega doses of viagra, oxycotin and domincan boys has already stated he wont move – but go there for there UNIVERSAL health coverage

    it is a close contest – but Rushbo is the most despicable man on Earth.

    • he wouldn’t go there for universal health care. he wants everyone to acknowledge how rich he is, so he’ll go there for the special clinics the american insurance companies will set up there for the mega-rich. he doesn’t think he should be forced to breath the same air as commoners.

      • writechic

        It’s such a wad of nonsense. He can have his private insurance here or there, and the best care he can buy. I think you’re right. He just wants to flout that he can do whatever he wants and everybody else can suck it.

        • he can hire his very own doctor (what do they call them, concierge docs or boutique docs?). i hear the one michael jackson used has some free time on his hands. πŸ™‚

  5. Two possibly relevant facts about Costa Rica: the age of consent is 15 and prostitution is legal.

  6. Joanaroo

    OK, so that means Gush Dimblow will go there to look for all the 13-year-olds he can find!

  7. I totally agree with the idea that he’s telling his droolers this garbage might be good enough for you slobs but I am going to Costa Rica where guys like me get top notch care because we’re loaded. He’s talked to insurance companies who don’t want to get put out of business, what a laugh. Never mind the people whose lives they’ve put out of business by screwing them out of care their premiums paid for… Same old same old with this bloated fat bitch. He blurts out anything that pops into his reptilian brain when it’s not obsessing over junkfood then blames everyone for listening to him.

    • his listeners who worry about where he’s going to get his health care are like those who sit around worrying about whether jennifer aniston is going to get a date. it has no impact whatsoever on their own lives, and they’re all better off figuring out what’s in their own best interests, not those of some people they hear on the radio or see on tv.

  8. He needs to go, like Napoleon, to St. Helena so he can’t escape. Maybe Pitcairn Island since its the furtherest away from the world. My personal choice would be that obscure pinacle Rockall (UK pop. 0)

    • i think we should put him in the middle of an ocean (choose one), and when he farts, he can hope that lava comes out and forms his own little archipelago under him.

  9. I’d like to extend my sincere sympathies to Costa Rica.

    • sympathies? he’s not moving there. we should throw them a party! save the condolence cards for the poor sheep in new zealand.

      melissa (wcp) nails it. this is the lumpy asswipe taking the opportunity to tell everyone how rich he is. i can fly to costa rica whenever my erection lasts more than 4 hours, and you can’t. nyah, nyah, nyah!

  10. As long as he stays away from Canada…

  11. you have the best threads

    Eww! Just got a mental pic of Lowblow with priapism. He’d probably brag to his listeners that he can have a 4-hour erection. Personally, I’d hope his dick would fall off before he got to Costa Rica! =)

    • the average flight time from floriduhhh to costa rica is around 3 hours. i guess rushbo will have to start worrying after an hour and waste most of his viagra time on a plane! πŸ˜†
