Trump killed Limbaugh (he's not dead yet)

Recently Limbaugh told his audience that his lung cancer, a disease which he regularly told millions is not caused by smoking, is terminal.

According to one of Limbaugh’s regular replacements Limbaugh has been delaying scheduled treatments to help Trump at critical times and to get through the election.

Trump owes Limbaugh big time for helping Putin get him elected in 2016 and Limbaugh should have spent the last ten months getting the best treatment money can buy and resting by the ocean in Palm Beach. Instead, Trump has been using Limbaugh to call COVID a hoax, make excuses for his crimes and incompetence, attack Democrats, and most recently call the election stolen.

Limbaugh took one for the Jipper, and they both lost.

And so did the GOP, because Limbaugh won’t be there to excuse them for supporting Trump. 

Open letter to Republican politicians and staff: Limbaugh is dying and you're fucked!

Democrats might not know it but you know Limbaugh is the single asshole most responsible for this disaster. The guy who convinced millions that smoking doesn't cause cancer and that global warming and COVID are communist 'Democrat' hoaxes is going to die of lung cancer, probably before getting the 'credit' he deserves for all that death and destruction.

And you'll be left holding the bag.

At some point in the near future the moral and intellectual leader of the Republican Party the last 30 years won't be there to lead the talk radio army that's so important to cover for you. Limbaugh won't be there to lay out all those usual excuses and lies to enable your anti-American anti-democratic corruption and hypocrisy.

He won't be there to keep all the other radio blowhards in line. The transcripts of his show that have kept the Republican team on the same page for so long will disappear. The state level radio hosts who have been so good for attacking your opponents and repeating the lies you rely on to sell shit to Americans will begin to wander off with their own opinions. You know a lot of those talk show hosts are idiots who might start favoring more radical Republican challengers. Or those stations might want to look for more moderate opinions that will make you look out of touch and treasonous. How many Lincoln Project and never Trumper types are out there who think your sycophancy and global warming denial makes you unfit?

And pretty soon Democrats are going to start using artificial intelligence to transcribe and expose that secret talk radio bandwagon you've been riding.

You fucked up big time not convicting Trump in the senate. Hundreds of thousands of Americans will die of COVID because you shook in your loafers when Trump paraded his friend, neighbor, fellow Putin tool, and leader of the dumbass dittohead army around the golf course to scare you into ignoring the Mueller Report and all the other evidence telling you your president is a traitor.

If Biden/Harris win how far will you go in the next two months covering for Trump and enabling whatever sabotage he wants to try?

If the polls are completely wrong and Trump and his Russian friends pull it off again know that Limbaugh won't be there to yell "DEEP STATE!" all day to cover for whatever shit Trump wants you to help him pull.

He also won't be there to intimidate you, either. So get ready, the opportunity to do the right thing and be a patriot is coming.

Republicans are killing the goose that laid the golden cud

Limbaugh's got stage four lung cancer and has to take time off to get and recover from treatment.

Trump and company must be freaked out that their most important tool and the horse that brung them is falling apart and may have to drop off for good at any time. Putin has been using talk radio around the world like the old Voice of America and here since at least 2008 when he used Manafort and Limbaugh to push Palin on Mccain. He will also be disappointed to lose the most important weapon in his propaganda operation.

If limbaugh drops off all of a sudden their most unique advantage will fall apart - no one can take his place, much less someone they can trust, to lead messaging on 1500 radio stations, police Republican politicians, and attack their opponents. All those talkers will start going their own way, as they jockey to replace limbaugh and those who replace those who replace limbaugh on different stations.

The ad industry is or will be freaking out too and would be stupid not to adjust. 600 limbaugh stations, many of the loudest in the country, reach a huge number of ears but without limbaugh they'll have to start charging less and owners and managers of those stations will be looking for different alternatives - some of them may decide they need to change programming all together.

But with one disaster after another lining up and a massive election theft to sell, Limbaugh is needed more than ever to make excuses, deflect blame to Democrats, and attack their enemies. They must be pushing him to keep showing up when he should be resting. A lot like the virus that Limbaugh denied for Trump for the last 5 months and thanks to them has killed thousands, they want to reopen too soon.

Run while hunkering. Run around the couch and do 1.8 mi in 20 min, with less impact!

Been running around the couch for years. The ‘track’ is about 9-10ft in diameter. Never liked the pounding of outside running and in my neighborhood the dogs could be a problem even if I wanted to.

If people are stuck inside it may be an option. Other objects or no object to run around can work too, maybe in the back yard or driveway.

Not sure about on carpet but on flat hard surfaces socks and Crocs work well for me. They can slip if there’s a build up so I keep the track clean with a quick microfiber mopping and wipe the soles with alcohol once in a while. I also roughed up the bottoms and something like shoe Goop or Lexel caulk might increase grip for dedicated running wear.

I just realized something about bringing a virus into the house. Suppose someone coughs just before I step in it. I take my shoes off at the door but put my thongs or slippers on to walk out and pee. Then I settle down on the couch and put my feet up on the chair and maybe I haven’t taken off the slippers or thongs. I get up to get some water and put the laptop on the chair. I pick up the laptop and sit back down and then scratch my nose. And so on.

10ft dia x 3.14 = 31.4 feet per lap.

If you do a lap in 4 seconds that’s 31.4 x 15 = 471 ft/min. 20 min of running is about 9420 ft or about 1.8 miles or about 2.9 killometers.

Advantages over jogging outside include:

---the most significant advantage for me is reduced impact — alway going around the corner, leaning in. At higher speeds it’s like ice skating
---the inside/lower side compressing and outside/upper side of body stretching — doing different things
---changing directions (eg every 5 min) alternates that
---run in rain, snow, cold, or heat
---run as much as you want, whenever you want, as long as a downstairs neighbor doesn’t want to shoot you
---no need for expensive heavy equipment
---if you don’t have to look down it may be good for the eyes to be focusing around the room as objects get closer and further away. Looking out a window is possible too
---run naked or in other various states of undress. No need for expensive spandex
---great way to start if you’re self-conscious
---watch a show you don’t mind looking at intermittently. Run while listening to Rachel, for example
---no cars
---have online races with friends!
---the only cats and dogs chasing you are yours

I imagine there are other advantages.

Watch the toes!
