Rush Limbaugh Wishes Listeners Merry Christmas, Says He Wasn't Even Expected to be Alive At Christmas

A nice Christmas message.

Limbaugh explained:


"On the day that Lou Gehrig announced that he had his disease that was forcing him to retire from Major League Baseball, he said to the sold-out Yankee Stadium, 'Today I feel like the luckiest man on the face of the earth.'

I didn't understand that. I mean, here's a guy who'd just been diagnosed with the most terminal of terminal diseases, and I said, 'This can't be real. He can't really think he's the luckiest guy in the world. This is just something that he's saying because it will play well.' I don't mean to be insulting Lou Gehrig; don't misunderstand. I'm just saying, how in the world if you're being honest can you feel like you're the luckiest man on the face of the earth?"

The radio giant said that now he understands, telling his listeners, "Well, when I got my diagnosis...I began to receive all of the outpouring of love and affection from everywhere in my life from so many of you in so many ways and from my family."

He added, "because I have outlived the diagnosis, I've been able to receive and hear and process some of the most wonderful, nice things about me that I might not have ever heard had I not gotten sick. Again think, how many people who pass away never hear the eulogies, never hear the thank-yous? I've been very lucky, folks, in I can't tell you how many ways."

Merry Christmas, morons friends!
