Hey look, these things happen. Can't spend your life crying over spilled jugo de papaya…

Remember back when Rush Limbaugh gave every liberal an extra spring in their steps by promising that if Congress offered us a fudge sundae of health care reform, he would put a moving his massive horribleness to Costa Rica cherry on top?
"I don't know. I'll just tell you this, if this passes and it's five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented — I am leaving the country. I'll go to Costa Rica."
Remember that? Yeah? Well, Rush doesn't. At least not that way…
"If I have to get thrown into this massive government health care insurance business and end up going to the driver's license office every day when I need to go to the doctor, yeah, I'll go to Costa Rica for treatment, not move there."
Oh, I see. I — as well as every other person on the planet — misunderstood him. Because it makes so much more sense now that Rush explains it. Of course he would want to fly all the way away from an American socialized health care system, that anybody with as much money as he has can easily opt out of, to get treated by a doctor in Costa Rica's socialized health care system.
Poor Rush is obviously confused, because he's making no sense. But you can help him.
First, remind him of what he originally promised on this "Help Rush Limbaugh Remember to Leave the Country" Facebook page.
And then donate a dollar for his ticket. (If he decides not to go, all money raised will go to Planned Parenthood, because Rush would have wanted it that way.)

Hey, all you stupid liberals who so selfishly want to make sure that First World-quality, non-bankruptcy-inducing health care is available to the people who live in your neighborhoods and ride on your subway cars and sleep in your beds! Have you considered the actual real consequences of passing health care reform?
Like, have you considered how it will affect millionaires like Rush Limbaugh?
CALLER: If the health care bill passes, where would you go for health care yourself? And the second part of that is, what would happen to the doctors, do they have to participate in the federal program, or could they opt out of it? [...]
LIMBAUGH: My guess in even in Canada and even in the UK, doctors have opted out. And once they've opted, they can’t see anybody Medicare, Medicaid, or what will become the exchanges. They have to have a clientele of private patients that will pay them a retainer and it'll be a very small practice. I don't know if that's been outlawed in the Senate bill. I don’t know. I'll just tell you this, if this passes and it's five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented — I am leaving the country. I'll go to Costa Rica.
Oh… my… God! We have to shut this down right now. Somebody get on the horn with Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and inform them of this extremely real and terrifying development.
I don't know about you, but I do not want the loss of a national treasure like Rush Limbaugh on my conscience. Especially not for something as piddling as my fellow citizens' well-being. Not on my watch, people! Not on my watch!
And — lest you think Mr. Limbaugh's bone-chilling threat is somewhat less than sincere — remember back when promised to give up his palatial Greek porn producer-esque penthouse suite in Manhattan because he doesn't like having to pay taxes? Well, it only took him most of a year, but it's finally on the market.
