Rush Limbaugh Affected by Profound Hearing Loss
Earlier today, Rush Limbaugh told his audience that he has lost virtually all of his hearing in the past 3 months. Last week when he was supposedly on vacation, he was rehearsing ways that he could continue hosting his show without hearing the callers.
The Drudge Report has a story repeating the announcement and providing a transcript of Rush Limbaugh's statement to his audience. The Associated Press also ran a story summarizing the situation late this afternoon.
Update: The Washington Post ran a story about Rush Limbaugh in its Entertainment section. In it Al Franken is quoted as saying, "If I had my druthers, his show wouldn't be on the air and it wouldn't be as popular as it is. But, no one wishes anything like this on him." Who cares if you hate what Rush Limbaugh stands for, Al? Can't you give it a rest in a situation like this?
