That said, yeah, it's a little bit of karma, it probably has a lot to do with his own excesses, and I think the world would have been a better place without him. But, still, the man has family and friends.
What about the family and friends of the humans he actively worked to make die with his lies?

The bloviating bag of uselessness earned whatever he's going through now, and it will not nearly be enough punishment before it passes.

I loathe him and all he stands for and think the world will be a little less malign when he is gone, but I wouldn't wish lung cancer on anyone. I've though about this since I heard the news; I find that I feel sorry for him, as I would for anyone in his shoes.

If you had cancer he wouldn't care, unless you couldn't afford treatment and needed assistance from the government. At that point he would actively work to see you didn't get that assistance.

There's a large number of people I dislike that I'd feel sympathy for in this situation. I personally didn't like Kobe Bryant, but I found his passing quite distressing. In this case, not at all.

No better than he has taken care of himself, even the best treatment may be of no avail.

My dad is an anti-tobacco advocate. Back in the 90’s, Rush decided he was a threat to the tobacco industries and decided to put him on blast and call him a liar to his millions of listeners. I remember being 12 years old and listening to my father’s death threats on voicemail.

Sounds like Rush's cancer diagnosis is the ultimate karma.

You might be familiar with Barbara Carlson, a former local radio talk show host and political gadfly (who was formerly married to Arne Carlson before he was elected governor of MN).

I was on speaking terms with her and most of the on-air talent at KSTP-AM, because the station was in my neighborhood and I was a regular caller/shtick participant to several of their shows (and had had a memorable confrontation with Babs at a station event).

Babs pulled something similar on a couple of local psychologists who, after the suicide of a teenage boys made the news, revealed he had been anguished over being gay. They spoke out in hopes of encouraging other gay teens to seek help if they were feeling suicidal.

Babs decided this was an unjustified invasion of the deceased boy's privacy. She read their names, addresses, and phone numbers over the air and encouraged her listeners to retaliate.

And I caught seven kinds of hell from some of my coworkers for being "friends" with a monster who'd use the power of her radio show to put individuals in fear for their lives. The psychologists had been inundated with death threats and had to go into hiding.

KSTP ran the Limbaugh show, too. Like Peter, like Paul.

How long did he ignore warning signs? Can you even get to stage 4 without a physical clue?

I wondered the same thing. I'd like someone with more medical knowledge than I have to chime in, but from what a quick Google search shows up, I think it's possible. Also, I haven't heard that it's stage IV, just "late stage."

Hub's first wife died of lung cancer at 39. She started smoking at 13. She had insurance but they diagnosed her with bronchitis, then bad bronchitis, then really bad bronchitis, then, oh shit you're going to die lung cancer. But this was 25 years ago. I'd like to think, in this day and age of advanced imagery, a doctor would consider the unthinkable, especially with that kind of a smoking history and his notoriety (my word). I wouldn't want to be the doctor who didn't consider the possibilities until it was too late.

Diagnoses are not math. 2 plus 2 may not equal 4. Usually, you start by ruling out the most common: Bronchitis, pneumonia, pneumonitis. But a chest x-ray is usually a pretty good indicator of something sinister and we've been using them for decades so...hellifiknow.

That said, it's possible RL himself didn't bother to check it out until the symptoms made it impossible not to.

That also said, all cancers are different, even cancers within the same family (of cancers). What one person might survive, could grow very quickly or metastasize in another, depending on....pretty much anything.

My brother-in-law who died in October essentially died of lung cancer, although it was really all over his upper torso when he was diagnosed, so it was very advanced. He was diagnosed in August after coughing up huge amounts of blood, but had no real symptoms before that, just feeling a little tired. After a mid-August diagnosis, he was in hospice October 4 and died October 7.

I have a brother who had colon cancer, Stage IV, without a single symptom. He was seeing his heart specialist who thought his color was off and suggested he see another doctor. He had surgery the next week. He's fine 20 years later.

We had another friend who had colon cancer. He had a lot of symptoms, ignored them, even cancelled a colonoscopy. He was given 15-18 months when he was finally diagnosed and barely made it 15 months. When I think of him, I think he didn't have to be dead.,

Cancer is a bitch and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but, yep, each cancer is different.

For what? That time he mimicked/mocked Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's symptoms and claimed Michael was exaggerating and acting?

Hmm, who else do we know who mocked a person with a similar disability?? :think:

Arthur Laffer got a Medal of Freedom for lying about how the economy works, so why shouldn't Rush get one for lying about everything?

Medals trump gives out should have a big T on them. Not only would he approve, the children will know what to throw out when going through belongings.

El Rushbo is unmatched in taking rights and opportunites away from Americans and sowing discord and animus. But we absolutely wish his whole family well.

Rush said Steve Kornacki got it right on this story:
Kornacki Gets It Right About This Show and the Birth of Fox Oct 15, 2018

RUSH: This is the first guy that’s gotten this right. It’s the first guy that’s gotten this right in 28 years, 24 years, 26 years, whatever the number. This was Sunday morning on C-SPAN, Washington Journal.

The host, Steve Scully is talking to NBC national political correspondent Steve Kornacki. Kornacki has a new book. It’s called The Red and the Blue: The 1990s and the Birth of Political Tribalism. And Scully says to Kornacki, “Talk about the issue of opinion journalism which we see on Fox and PMSNBC and CNN.”

KORNACKI: Roger Ailes in 1996, he had produced Rush Limbaugh’s television show in the early 1990s. He saw, through Rush Limbaugh I think, he saw through Rush Limbaugh’s radio show and his television show in the 1990s that there was this very large audience on the right that was very dissatisfied with the idea of the mainstream media.

RUSH: He’s the only guy who’s actually gotten this right. They always say that Ailes created Limbaugh and Fox News. And then they always try to distance Ailes from having had anything to do with my TV show, that Fox News started out of the witch’s brew of nothing and so forth. Kornacki’s the first guy to get this timeline and the circle of events correctly.

There’s some people who have gotten close.

Some people have said, “You know, when Fox News started it was like talk radio on TV.” And people, “I wonder where Ailes got that idea” people would say. And I would just stand there and smile, kind of wink and nod. But nobody ever wanted to connect the two because that would mean putting me in the equation. And we can’t do that. So I don’t know what got into Kornacki, NBC News national political correspondent, but he got it right.

For those of you too young to remember, years ago, the newest recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom called 12-year-old Chelsea Clinton a "dog" on national television. Remember that the next time Trump bleats about his wife's "Be Best" campaign.

One hell of a lot of good, decent human beings end up with cancer. That's a tragedy.

But sometimes terrible people are eaten alive by it and die in misery and the world is a better place it. Fuck 'em. The people they victimized had families too.

You die how you live.
