Bumblehead of the Week

(rush limbaugh - bumblehead of every week)

Rush was rushed to the hospital last week! Goodness! I'm sure you have all been on pins and needles, wondering how he's going.

Fortunately, the big fella is just fine. His chest pains were apparently caused by a vacant spot in his chest that would normally be occupied by a heart. Kind of similar to those headaches he often gets, if you know what I mean.


Rush is now home and doing great. Here's what he had to say about the experience:

"The treatment I received here was the best that the world has to offer,” Limbaugh said. “Based on what happened here to me, I don't think there's one thing wrong with the American health care system. It is working just fine, just dandy."

No kidding, Brainless One. You're a wealthy, famous American with, I'm sure, ample health insurance. Of course your treatment was "just dandy."


In a somewhat related story, a friend of mine who is totally not a bumblehead recently posted some pictures of her new grandbaby on Facebook. One of the photos showed the hospital lobby. It looks just fine, just dandy. But it struck me a little odd ...

... tell me, do we perhaps, slightly, maybe have our priorities a little out of whack in this country, when hospital lobbies look like luxurious 5-star hotels but middle class people go bankrupt every day from medical expenses? Hmmm?

Is our system really the best the world has to offer?
Are we doing fine?



  1. Too bad they don't hold free clinics in that nice open lobby area. At least the expense would be worth it then.

    Isn't ironic that Rush chose Hawaii for his vacation at the very same time Pres. Obama was there. Wonder if Barack stopped in for a visit?

  2. Lesley, I always know where to turn for an intelligent rant. Nice one.

  3. we had a dumb king asked his advisor "why don't people just eat meat?" when they told him there was a famine and people were starving. same logic.

  4. Made me mad when I heard his remarks. Is he really that stupid? Oh wait... Why did I even ask that?

  5. Couldn't help but comment Lesley!! I had to pick myself up off the floor after laughing, and then do it again when I read it back to my husband!
    We were quite a site...
    We also have a hospital here that looks like a hotel lobby....people actually go there for lunch!!! Only a fraction of the population can afford the care there. Now that's NOT funny!!
    You, Tom and I all have RANT in our blog titles....go figure!

  6. I design hospitals for a living. I'm just curious what you would prefer them to look like. We have to please our clients (the owners) as well as handle the issue of perception at the same time.
