Skip to comments.EXCLUSIVE: Oops! Wikipedia Pronounced Rush Limbaugh Dead
Posted on 12/31/2009 7:36:02 AM PST by libh8er
Looks like the folks at Wikipedia were prepared for the worst when it came to Rush Limbaugh. Actually they were a little too well prepared.
Shortly after the news broke that the conservative political radio talk show host was hospitalized, Wikipedia updated his page and pronounced him dead.
Folks (like us) who happened to take a look at Limbaughs biography, saw this:
Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (pronounced /ˈlɪmbɔː/;born January 12, 1951, died December 30, 2009) is an American radio host and conservative political commentator. He is the host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, the highest-rated talk-radio program in the United States. It airs throughout the U.S. on Premiere Radio Networks.
That was posted shortly after midnight, EST.
Rush, of course, was very much alive and about 15 minutes later Wikipedia pronounced him so, altering their bio by removing the information that he had died.
Limbaugh remains hospitalized Thurday.
I thought I knew how to pronounce his name, until that.
maybe the same ones that knocked off grandma on the last visit just before she was about to spill the beans on her bastard grandson from kenya.
Rush got too close and got a good lung full of sulphur.
I wish him a speedy recovery!
conspiracy theories aside, rush’s health should be the center of any freedom loving persons agenda right now. we really need him now more than ever. november is right around the corner.
The only way to do that is convert them to your side. Surely you aren't in favor of denying them freedom of speech, no matter how despicable it may be?
These people at Wiki are out of control.
Yes I believe you are right.
Obama is in Hawaii not on vacation but to make darn sure no one leaks the fact he was not born in Hawaii..We are getting to close so he decide to take our company plane on another free ride to Hawaii to intimidate the locals into keeping their mouth shut..
Also Pelosi and BO decided to get rid of Rush..
Why am I surprised?
I shouldn’t be.
Well, damn them too.
Wiki is in the middle of a begathon. Screw ‘em. They are die hard Commnunists.
I was thinking about a denial of service attack or storming their host servers and smashing them. Their hate goes deeper than conversion. just kidding all you DUshbags.
I have to say, that if anything happend to Pelosi or Dodd or anyone of those jacka$$es...My sympathy would be in the dictionary.....oh well....
Interesting post in #13...
>> As Mark Twain said: Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. <<
People forget that Samuel Clemens, aka. Mark Twain had plenty of enemies in his lifetime.
Rush kind of reminds me of him in some ways.
>> Twitter posters revealed that evil is incarnate on this world.
The left was dancing and celebrating in hopes that Rush would die last night. <<
Kind of like how people danced in the middle east after 9/11....
when someone tries to foment treason and evil, hell YEAH I am against their speech!
I did NOT serve in the Marine Corps to defend someone’s right to call for the assasination of Bush, Call for bombings of military installations, call for supporting enemy Jihadists in war against Americans!
NONE of that is FREE SPEECH, it is sedition and treason!
and it is NOT protected speech...unless of course, you are a democrat!
1. 'We' don't do that.
2. Obama isn't as big a celebrity as Rush.
Put your glasses on hg. It says died, January 30, 2009.
How is it people still don’t understand how Wikipedia works?
There are no “folks at Wikipedia” who update “their” page. Some random user made the bogus edit saying Rush had died, and some other random user came along and edited it out.
