Rush Limbaugh revealed Monday that he is fighting advanced lung cancer.

The 69-year-old conservative talk show host said he first realized that something was wrong during his birthday weekend Jan. 12 and got his diagnosis from two medical institutions nine days later. Limbaugh said he wanted to be open so that the public wouldn't start speculating about any future absences or changes to the show while he undergoes treatment.


"Worst thing that can happen is when there is something going on and you try to hide it and cover it up and eventually it’s going to leak and people are like why didn’t you just say it? Why’d you try to fool everybody," he said.

The irony is thick...

I'm not a fan. But he's had a good run, I suppose.

Will he compose a valedictory, an apologia pro vita sua, one wonders? & how will he characterize his life & professional life?

I'd never wish cancer on my worst enemy, I don't relish in him having it

I can probably guess what his thoughts were on healthcare though, and hopefully he'll change his tune on that (probably won't though)

Ah, what a damned shame. It breaks my heart the cowardly draft-dodging, doctor-shopping drug addict is dying. It would really upset me if he took 3 or 4 years to die, all the while in excruciating "I wish I was dead" type pain.

Wonder if Cigar Aficionado is going to put a picture of his chest X-ray on it's cover next month?
