Report Says Limbaugh Rushed to Hospital in Hawaii

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.
