Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

I never paid attention to Rush Limbaugh because I don't listen to talk radio and he seemed like someone who said things simply to get a reaction and to entertain his audience.

I was born the same day, month, and year as Lush Rimjob and within twenty miles of him. He was born in a hospital, I was bornin a share-croppers house. My mother worked weeded cotton until noon and had me at 5:30 PM. She didn't lunch or supper that day.

Just goes to show that astrology is bullshit.

Mark Twain said something like this--I never have wished death upon any individual, but I have read with pleasure a few obituaries.

Not as nice as Twain, for if I could have wished death upon limbaugh, I would have.  I only relish his death.  Only wish it had come much, much sooner--and was more painful!
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

LOL. Apparently, that wasn't Mark Twain but some American lawyer. It's more fitting, but Mark Twain sounds cooler I guess.

Well, I'll be damned.  I had never looked into the source of that saying, and it turns out you are right.  Clarence Darrow is supposed to have said something like it.

It sounds kind of Mark Twainish, but it has an edge to it that is not typical of most of Twain's comments.

It is with great sorrow that I learned of Lush Rimjob's death at home in bed. I was hoping for a fiery car crash with him trapped inside and people pointing and laughing.

I was about to ask if he was the guy who was fired from Fox News for sexually assaulting female staff members, but no. That was Bill O'Reilly. This is the talk show guy. I don't know if he did anything that would make me celebrate his death. I know he spread Right Wing propaganda, but I don't want to be a hypocrite after my disgust seeing how Conservatives reacted to Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death last year. I can think of a few people the world would be better off without, but I don't feel particularly strongly about Rush Limbaugh.

Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,

You would if you did a tiny search of what his views were.  He fits into the trump (whom he fully supported) world and cast of characters.
