I May Have to Leave the Country

Rush Limbaugh has become the latest in a long line of people to announce if so and so happens he shall leave the country. Today Limbaugh said if health care reform passes he will move to Costa Rica. Wait. What? Who cares if Limbaugh moves to another country? Does he have that much of an elevated self worth that he thinks he can dictate policy based on his decision on where to live? Seriously?

Another thing I am curious about, why do people use this line? What do I or any of us care if someone is so unhappy with the government they decide they want to live elsewhere? I say, go for it, baby! If you are that miserable here, then let me help you pack. Idle threats. That is what they are most often, designed to get attention.  Hey, I guess it worked for Limbaugh, he has received plenty of attention for this comment.

So, perhaps this is one we should all start using. I will tell my mortgage company if they don't stop asking me for money each month then I will move to another country. Wait. That one might just backfire on me. 

Ok, I'll tell my kids if they don't eat their spinach and broccoli then I will move to another country. Ha, now that one might work...wait, then again...

How about I tell my boss if I can't come in late, leave early and take tomorrow off then I will move to another country...oh crap, that probably won't work either, huh?

I guess I will have to work on this, how about, "Honey, if you don't leave me alone and believe I have a headache I may just have to move YOU to another country!"  Now, I might just be on to something...

See the thing is, Limbaugh may have given the Dems all the incentive they need to push it through! lol

Honestly, I hope he leaves, take Sarah Palin with him and then can secretly get Canadian healthcare.

He's probably already planning on it anyway. He says he'll move to Costa Rica. Lots and lots of very rich American ex-pats have already moved there.

But, I guarantee you, if he does move there and gets sick at some point, he'll get flown back to New York to see the doctor. haha

Love it! But it won't shut him up. I'm thinking he should move somewhere more earthquake prone.

Unfortunately Limbaugh can still broadcast from anywhere!

I'll help him pack his bags :-)

Sadly, I think the man is unstoppable. Going practically deaf didn't slow him down and his "heart" incident didn't either. He's like an evil immortal republican being.

Didn't Rush make fun of Alec Baldwin saying that he would move to France if Bush won a second term?

Jenny Meredith said...

Funny stuff! But in all honesty... we're looking for a place to go if Sarah Palin is ever president....

No comment. :-)

Rush is a damn fool. He only cares about himself. It's all about him. Not about the party. Not about the movement. It's about him. If he wants to go, I'll help him pack.

But Costa Rica? Why there?
