I dont care

This is a great example of a funny headline that utilizes a cliche in a new and innovative way. Funny.

Even though I can't stand his 'opinions', right on for him, hearing loss is no joke. Earplugs folks for those that like live music!
 
2001-12-24 2:51:03 PM  
YYZ!
 
2001-12-24 3:02:07 PM  
I too was amused by the headline. Now, where is the
blatantly partisan troll that pushes this thread into
triple digits?
 
2001-12-24 3:06:51 PM  
I didn't know Rush qualified as a celebrity. I thought he was just another talking head clogging up talk radio.
 
2001-12-24 3:17:23 PM  
Rush is one of the greatest bands ever, and I for one am glad they can hear again ... now when can we expect an album?
 
2001-12-24 3:20:48 PM  
damn

It is all science.

Yeah... but will he listen??


Neverh as before, so why should he now? Although Rush has proven there is a God. He losing the ability to hear was a gift from the Great Satan, but he being able to hear again is a gift from a God that cares not for us.

Holly heck... Those things need structural support... I bet her underwire is made of titanium to reduce back strain.
 
2001-12-24 4:00:29 PM  
Publicity stunt maybe. Like LOTR being #1 on imdb
 
2001-12-24 4:03:53 PM  
everyone says rush has a good drummer... personaly i think he sucks.
 
2001-12-24 4:22:31 PM  
Quarlie- I love you for that.

Spodefly- May 2002 is the potential release date of the new album.

Leg0z- What the fark are you talking about? Neil Peart is an excellent drummer with amazing songwriting skills. He is creative, fast, and has a knack for creating complicated drum parts which weave intricately in and out of the music. Take anything off the "Hold Your Fire" album or "Moving Pictures." It's great stuff.

Oh, and Geddy and Alex aren't exactly slackers, either.
 
2001-12-24 4:35:21 PM  
I heard that it was accomplished via a surgical procedure that was developed thanks to governmental medical research grants that Rush has opposed quite vocally on his radio show.

What a dickhead.
 
2001-12-24 4:46:26 PM  
Oh well, atleast now when I hear some possible arch nemesis listening to him, I won't have to wait for Rush to be cued to clear his throat (someone off mic gives him a signal when to clear the "phlegm" (more like shiat that didn't make it out of his mouth) out of his throat).
 
2001-12-24 5:16:39 PM  
He is scheduled to return to the clinic in a few weeks to be fitted for an external unit for his implant.

I knew that man had no dick! Well, through the miracles of modern science, Limbaugh will finally be able to pee standing up.
 
2001-12-24 5:22:58 PM  
Rush should have a new release out this year with hopefully a world tour to follow.

>>>>Shoeshine: well i have a message for good ole rush. merry xmas you goat farking retarded pedophile.

Typical well-thought-out & rational liberal position. Always remember, children, that the best argument in any debate is to stand in the middle of the playground, place your little fingers in your mouth to spread your pouty little lips real wide, stick out your tongue, and go:
"nananananannanananannaaaabbblllleeeeettttttt!!!!!"

>>>>>>>Icenine: I heard that it was accomplished via a surgical procedure that was developed thanks to governmental medical research grants that Rush has opposed quite vocally on his radio show. What a dickhead.

Really! "I heard..." Could be, I suppose. Source please, or is this just one of those there "facts" that everyone on the left "knows", like global warming, and the rate of Amazon rainforest destruction?

Verrrrry clever. Know any more dirty words little boy?

>>>>Scofield99: he's still got some good views, but hopefully this will somehow make tone down his ego...just a tad even

Ummmmm.... Is it just me and about 6,000,000 other listeners that realize that those "ego" moments is just showmanship and bullshiatting with the audience? No one *I* know takes it seriously.

>>>>>Boobies: I too was amused by the headline. Now, where is the blatantly partisan troll that pushes this thread into triple digits?

I'll do my best!
 
2001-12-24 5:44:58 PM  
Just when we thought irony was getting back on its feet...
 
2001-12-24 5:50:24 PM  
Seig heil!
 
2001-12-24 6:04:11 PM  
I love Rush and everything but let me tell you something. They kick ass until Geddy starts to sing. The song is still good, but not as good.

Alright, that's all. Carry on.

You are obviously a man of great maturity if that was all you saw in my post.

Rush is the best debator, ever. If someone with a different view than him calls in, or makes public their view, he imedietly calls them an Uglo-American, Environmental Wacko, or Femnazi. Yep, it's all a Liberal problem....

I find it difficult to understand people who think an invisible man in the sky created everything and must be worshipped 24/7, but don't believe in global warming, or the rates at which forests are being destroyed by humans.
 
2001-12-24 6:23:51 PM  
Of course this all boils down to Clinton's cock (in the fashion of a true Rush Limbaugh debate)
 
2001-12-24 7:00:13 PM  
dittoes, Rush!
 
2001-12-24 7:17:10 PM  
I used to love going to bookstores and placing a book written by a feminazi right in between some limbaugh books. It's kind of like voodoo. Explains why feminists are all angry and agitated.

Well, it IS the part of it that stands out most!

>>>> I find it difficult to understand people who think an invisible man in the sky created everything and must be worshipped 24/7, but don't believe in global warming, or the rates at which forests are being destroyed by humans.

There you go again, Ollie, assumming again. Have I ever said - or not said - that I believed in an invisible man in the sky? Another typical lib debating tactic: create a "straw man" statement or postion that you attribute to your opponent and either attack or ridicule it.

Might as well give up, Ollie; I know ALL the tricks.

>>>>> Rush is the best debator, ever. If someone with a different view than him calls in, or makes public their view, he imedietly calls them an Uglo-American, Environmental Wacko, or Femnazi. Yep, it's all a Liberal problem....

Ummmm.... when was the last time you actually LISTENED to the program? Or have you ever? Again, you are erecting a straw man argument (hey - at least you can erect SOMETHING!)

(This validates what I've always thought: it is very likely that libs & lefties get off on name-calling, as well as on the power trips and elitist bullshiat. Gives 'em that that nice warm and sticky feeling down under.... Someone should do a scientific study on this! Science demands it!)
 
2001-12-24 8:27:06 PM  
Hmm, Rush thumps his table, plays a news clip or reads an article, and then states an unequivocal opinion about it. Obviously that makes him a bad person, especially if his views disagree with yours.
 
2001-12-24 8:43:43 PM  
Ok, he lost his hearing due to "autoimmune inner-ear desease"???

AIDS??

Hearing....AIDS???

Yes, we have no puns here.
 
2001-12-24 8:56:24 PM  
Scofield: he's still got some good views . . .

. . . for me to poop on.
 
2001-12-24 8:56:33 PM  
Too bad he can hear again! Rush Limbaugh sucks!
 
2001-12-24 9:32:36 PM  
Damn, didn't realize this place was filled with liberal Defocrats!
 
2001-12-24 9:48:57 PM  
>>>>>Drummer: Too bad he can hear again! Rush Limbaugh sucks!

Ah, yes. Your loving and benevolent opinion is just the antidote to hate-filled intolerant conservatism.....

Interestingly, even deaf he would obviously be more than a match to your particular brand of argument. I bet it just eats you up inside, pisses you off no end, that he was able to continue doing a talk show when he couldn't hear the callers.

No hate here!
 
2001-12-24 9:53:26 PM  
wow, a thread with comments about the band Rush that Mike didnt post in? what the fark, man?

An early Christmas gift... our national treasure can hear again!

Rush hires producer for new album


By PAUL CANTIN
Senior
Reporter, JAM! Showbiz



The members of Rush have all but completed writing their next album
and are shifted into recording with a new producer.

 
2001-12-25 9:36:33 AM  
You can lead a Rush to judgment, but you can't make him think.
 
2001-12-25 10:48:58 AM  
Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot
 
2001-12-25 7:37:22 PM  
Rush can hear again?...New Headline..."Rush can Hear Again...More Lies Ahead"....haw haw haw...For a while there, I thought he was going to change his name to Deaf Smith, or Helen Keller, damb!
 
2001-12-25 10:21:28 PM  
Die geek-rockerz and right-wing fat farking conservatives alike.
