Democrats Urge Signing of a ‘Farewell Card to Rush’
March 11, 2010
(ChattahBox)—The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is urging supporters of healthcare reform to sign a farewell card to Rush Limbaugh. Earlier in the week hate talk radio host Rush Limbaugh told a caller on his show that he planned to leave the country and travel to Costa Rica, if healthcare reform was enacted in the United States. After his statement, many political blogs mentioned that they would be willing to chip in for his plane ticket, and a Facebook page even popped up, entitled “1,000,000 Facebookers To Promote Rush Limbaugh’s Exodus From The USA” The Facebook site states, “Invite all your friends to join the group and help solve the nation’s health care crisis and get a right-wing blowhard out of here once and for all!
In response to all of the media attention surrounding the bigoted hate talker’s pledge to flee the country, Limbaugh tried to walk back his statement, saying he doesn’t plan to “move” to Costa Rica. He just plans to travel there to receive medical care from its Socialized healthcare system.
The DCCC’s new campaign promises that when healthcare reform is passed through Congress, the organization will deliver the farewell card to Limbaugh and wish him a speedy trip out of the country.
