Here’s hoping everything’s okay, but I’ll go ahead and throw in the obligatory MSM headline nonetheless: Limbaugh hospitalized: Women and minorities hardest hit:

HONOLULU — Conservative radio talk host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a Honolulu hospital on Wednesday afternoon with chest pains, sources told KITV.

Paramedics responded to the call at 2:41 p.m. at the Kahala Hotel and Resort.

Limbaugh suffered from chest pains, sources said. Paramedics treated him and took him to Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.

He was seen golfing at Waialae Country Club earlier this week. The country club is next to the Kahala Hotel and Resort.

Though all reports so far say that Rush was “rushed to the hospital,” I don’t read too much into that as a gauge of any kind of severity, because is there ever a time when you’re casually taken to the hospital?

In any case, I’ll post any other details I learn about here. Hang in there Rush, we need ya back at the golden mic Monday.

On a slightly different note, am I the only person who’s not in Hawaii this week?

Update: According to Rush’s website, he’s “resting comfortably” in a Honolulu hospital. It can’t be a very private experience, taking ill among a throng of Obamedia who are on the island, but I wish him a fast recovery from… whatever it is that happened. Maybe he’ll call in to today’s show hosted by Walter Williams.

Here’s CNN’s Ed Henry outside the hospital:

Update II: Reactions to the Limbaugh news, including… wrote, “No one wants Rush Limbaugh to die. But they do want his doctors to fail”
But, turning the tables, some conservatives had fun with the idea that if only it were a liberal in the hospital…

“I’d donate a heart to keep Rush alive,” wrote blogger Dan Riehl. “Just need a knife and a liberal close by. ; )”

Another update: Walter Williams has a little more here.

    I hope he does much better. They say he is stable at the moment. Must be that Hawaii thing going around. You know. Being too close to the Obama.

    Yes. There are those people who are like Krytonite. Best keep Rush as far away from BHO as possible.

    Did you catch that part about talking medicine for back pain? Oh well it's not like the liberals were were going to stop yammering about that anyway, I guess.

    I am surprised Nick has not posted a comment about hoping for Rush's demise. But then, on the other hand, how would Nick post such a comment without injecting his "It was all Bush's fault" mantra.

    Get well soon Rush and hurry back so you can antagonize Nick and his liberal buddies!

    Rush probably ate some of that poi. I’ve heard it’s similar to caulk…or it could just be the young babe. At least he isn’t at the mercy of an ObamaMedCzar.Dittoes.
