I happened on what looks a lot like a farewell message From Rush Limbaugh from last Wednesday. A guest host was filling in for Limbaugh yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Today’s guest host Mark Steyn suggested Limbaugh may be out for the rest of the week.
Thank You for One of the Greatest Lives Anyone Could Have
Nov 24, 2020
RUSH: Now, I mentioned at the beginning of the program that it’s normally at Christmastime that I get all sentimental and thankful about the wonderful things that have happened to me because of you and that have accrued to me and my family because of you. And I don’t know why Christmastime as opposed to Thanksgiving, but I thought I would switch it up this year and reiterate these things that I try to share with you each and every year at Christmastime or during this holiday-type season.
And this year especially has been incredible. (pause) There were days I didn’t think I would be here on this date. There were days that I thought if I was here, I wouldn’t be doing this.
The numbers of you who are listening and what is called time spent listening, how long you’re listening. It’s incredible.
And so I owe so many people so much. I’m never gonna be able to adequately thank the people who are responsible for one of the greatest lives anybody could have. I am doing what I was born to do. It was what I wanted to do since I was 8 years old. I have met the goals I set for myself. I’ve maintained them. And I have been able to do it all, for the most part, on my terms. It cannot get any better.
And my family first and foremost, again, those of us who have been through this, you know what I’m talking about, but it is just incredible, the contributions that they make to enable me to continue to do this and to do that which makes me happy, which is about as much as anybody could ask for.
We’ll be back on Monday after a little extended Thanksgiving break. I hope you have a great rest of the week and Thanksgiving. Whatever you got planned, I hope it’s the best ever, and thank you once again for everything that you have meant to me and my family.
For a time during the Obama years I was a daily Limbaugh listener, for opposition research. Rush is a giant among liars, racists, and slanderers. Rush will leave behind a substantial legacy of hate.
I had hoped Limbaugh would live long enough to see Biden’s inauguration. While I welcome his departure from the public discourse, I don’t wish for his death.
