This morning I asked Rush Limbaugh what he thought of references to him on the private left-wing journalist discussion group JournoList. As reported in the Daily Caller, Sarah Spitz, producer* of the KCRW public radio program “Left, Right and Center,” which is heard on a number of NPR stations across the country, wrote on JournoList that if she witnessed Limbaugh dying of a heart attack, she would “laugh loudly like a maniac and watch his eyes bug out.”
“I never knew I had this much hate in me,” Spitz wrote, according to the Daily Caller account. “But he deserves it.”
So I asked Limbaugh: What do you make of the fact that people in positions of influence on the Left don’t just want to see you fail, don’t just want to see you marginalized, but would actually like to witness you dying a painful death?
“Not having wished anyone dead, nor having fantasized about watching someone die, I cannot possibly relate to this,” Limbaugh responded.
I can only surmise. I think most people on the left live in a world where merit is irrelevant. Theirs is a world in which connections, networking, kissing ass and obedient sameness are rewarded. I am the antithesis of all that. I am a legitimate, achieved and accomplished Number One and I’ve made it on my own and without them and without having followed their proscriptions. I think they are also jealous that I just sold my NY condo for a 125 percent profit while their homes are worthlessly underwater.
Funny thing….a number of my friends sent me the Daily Caller piece and the most shocking thing to them in the story was the advocacy of having government shut down Fox News. That the left wants me dead was not a big deal to them because it was nothing new to them. I think that’s hilarious. And about that: how about the LAW professor who thinks the FCC can pull Fox’s license? Fox does not have a license. The FCC does not grant Fox its right to exist. And this guy teaches law.
A few minutes later, Limbaugh emailed an additional thought. “And it is not just that they hate how I became who I am,” he wrote. “They literally hate ME. They hate me because I am the most prominent, effective and unrelenting voice of conservatism and they have not been able to stop me.”
Limbaugh will certainly have more to say about this on his program, but his response does point to a central dilemma for some on the Left: Would they rather see Fox out of business or Limbaugh dead? That, for the journalists of JournoList, would be a very hard call.
UPDATE: Not long after this was posted, Limbaugh wrote to add a more complete statement:
And it is not just that they hate how I became who I am. They literally hate ME. They hate me because I am the most prominent, effective and unrelenting voice of conservatism and they have not been able to stop me. These people and their tactics are not new, we’ve seen them before in other countries and other times. They want to destroy contrary and opposition voices and views. They will climb over the law and the people to achieve their aims. Earlier in this administration, the president and his hacks targeted me, his party targeted me and their groups targeted me. They are all the same. They are leftists, disguised as lawyers, judges, scholars, professors, teachers, reporters, anchors, senators, representatives, legislative aids, congressional staff, federal bureaucrats, etc. There is NO Media. We know that now. There is just an incestuous relationship among all these various groups and a revolving door connecting them all.
Remember the esteemed journalist who wished that Clarence Thomas wife would feed him butter and bacon so he would die early?
This is nothing new coming from the left.
Well--you're a Leftist. That should have been a clue.
He teaches law, however, that doesn't mean he knows law. Our idiot President taught some law classes too, and we all know how incredibly stupid he is.
Note that the woman who wants to watch Rush die works for NPR. Your tax dollars at work!
Rush calls it like he sees it, he’s no coward.
He could be a bit more humble, though.
I have to admit- I’d start laughing hysterically if Jihadists kidnapped a bunch of Leftist journalists and college professors, and beheaded them after they proclaimed their love for their cause and hoped they’d destroy Israel.
These lefties are truely the most hate-filled pathetic nasty scum of the earth.
They don’t just salvate at the thought of killing the unborn, they demand euthanasia. (Fl. case). They constantly try to tell other people HOW to live their lives.
They claim Peace but feed unrest.
It’s really just a simple step from laughing at the death of an individual with politics you disagree with to laughing at the genocide of entire groups of people with beliefs you disagree with.
Sarah Spitz would fit in well with the followers of Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and Castro. In that, I weep for my country.
Another memory jogged.........they ridicule Rush for his prescrption drug abuse but never mention Obama’s cocaine use.
Neither can I, Rush. Neither can I. And for the same reasons, I suppose.
The Left habitually accuses others of its own evils--greed--hate--intolerance--groupthink--mindlessness--prejudice--et al. Whether this is projection or propaganda I don't know. But they do it.
Rush nailed it:
” They are all the same. They are leftists, disguised as lawyers, judges, scholars, professors, teachers, reporters, anchors, senators, representatives, legislative aids, congressional staff, federal bureaucrats, etc. There is NO Media. We know that now. There is just an incestuous relationship among all these various groups and a revolving door connecting them all.”
Sounds a lot like Germany in the 1930’s.
The left is full of hate. I believe they hate themselves

ED SCHULTZ (01:59): I just want all of you to know that I get my entertainment through NewsBusters. (laughs, then in mincing voice)
How dare [we] Democrats make fun of Dick Cheneys heart problems and turn it into a political football. (back to normal voice, to the extent possible) I can just hear some little weasel whos writing that at NewsBusters. Youre my entertainment.
Bozell, Bozell and his bozo crew. Youre damn right, Dick Cheneys hearts a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him. Im glad he didnt tip over. He is the new poster child for health care in this country.
He is to ignorant. He won’t get it
The braggadocio and swagger are part of the whole schtick. It drives the liberals right up the wall. It's one of the main reasons they froth at the mouth when Rush's name is mentioned.
Some of it's real, no doubt. But not even most, I think.
I’ve heard the show it should not be called Left, Right and Center it should be called Left, Further Left, and Our Position. Same as the show On the Media on NPR it’s all from the left.

Sandra Bernhard issued a blistering warning to Sarah Palin during a performance of her new one-woman show.
The Republican V.P. nom would be "gang-raped by my big black brothers" if she enters Manhattan, Bernhard said. Palin is said to be making a campaign stop in New York next week.
"[The gang rape comment] is part of a much larger, nuanced, and yes, provocative (that's what I do) piece from my show about racism, freedom, women's rights and the extreme views of Governor Sarah Palin, a woman who doesn't believe that other women should have the right to choose," Bernhard told the Daily News today.
