Rush, We Hardly Knew Ye’

Limbaugh can see Costa Rica from his house

As you all know, Rush Limbaugh promised to leave the United States and move to Costa Rica if the Health Care Reform bill became law. This is how he made the announcement on-air and in his own words:

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.

Umm Rush, we have some news for you. You might want to start packing. Please remember to bring lots of sunscreen because we wouldn’t want that little unprotected pea-sized brain of yours to shrivel from the heat. Oh, and if you have already used all that Viagra that you smuggled back into the States from the Dominican Republic, don’t worry, Costa Rica has socialized health care and price constraints on prescription drugs. You’ll save a bundle. The “Excellence In Bloviating” network might however, want to consider hiring a Spanish translator if possible.

Just wondering, but will you still be going by the moniker “El Rushbo” or something new? Perhaps “The Freakin’ Costa Rican” or “The Jerk Without A Country”? Maybe Sarah Palin can go there with you as a radio co-host. The show could be called “Limbo And The Bimbo”. The possibilities are endless. We don’t mean to be nasty, Rush. Believe us, when we tell you that we wish you all the luck in the world down in your new Central American home. We wouldn’t want you to change your mind and come back here, after all.

To all you dear fellow Rocketeers, I must admit that I have been waiting for the chance to show my age by writing a song parody from the 1970’s television show The Partridge Family. For those of you that are too young to remember, the hokey sitcom was about a single mother and her five children that formed a band in order to raise some money to make ends meet. They toured in an old bus that they custom painted and of course, they found all kinds of funny situations. It actually looked a lot like the buses that the crazy Tea-Baggers travel in these days. (see photo below) The show was sort of a poor man’s Brady Bunch but it was just as popular to us young teenagers during its short broadcast lifespan.

Please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s topical song parody.

POINT ME IN THE DIRECTION OF COSTA RICA

(sung to the Partridge Family song “Point Me In The Direction Of Albuquerque”)

Limbaugh’s leaving town now, we all hope for good
With the passage of health reform, he must now leave the hood
We all heard his soundbyte that he cannot deny
When he leaves our country will he even wave goodbye?

Brainless little ragdoll, once again he has lost
He said he would flee the country, Rushbo did not mind the cost
He said it on the airwaves where everyone could hear
The passage of health reform was something Rush could not bear

Point Rush in the direction of Costa Rica
He wants a new home, to rest his bald dome
Point Rush in the direction of Costa Rica
But he’ll be unknown, in his new home

Maybe he’ll borrow Palin’s book-tour bus to cross that border-line
Or maybe Mark Sanford’s mini-bus
But anyone that helps him leave is a real good friend of mine
(Real good friend of mine)

Point Rush in the direction of Costa Rica
He wants a new home, to rest his old bones

Rush will leave the station he’s broadcast from for years
Leaving us so happy we can’t hold back the tears
Faster than a greyhound running away in fright
Head against the window as his bus rolls out of sight

Point Rush in the direction of Costa Rica
He wants a new home, to rest his bald dome
Point Rush in the direction of Costa Rica
But he’ll be unknown, in his new home

Point Rush in the direction of Costa Rica
He wants a new home, to rest his old bones

  1. Great stuff! But his ass is far too small. : )

  2. I was hoping he’d be leaving right away. I don’t think I could stand another 5 years of that guy being in the news here. Hope there are poisonous bugs, where ever he lives.
    (Vaguely remember this show, but not the song. That bus looks more like a Piet Mondrian painting than anything a Teabagger could come up with.)

  3. Going South

    If the best government is that which governs least, isn’t Mexico the place for him? It’s a Libertarian paradise! Hardly any government at all, and lots of guns! Total freedom and very few taxes!

    But isn’t Limbaugh firmly anti-immigration? Would our bigoted Ugly American want to be treated as a “foreigner”……….by foreigners?

  4. Good riddance to that windbag Rush! Nice of you to keep the Partridge family memories alive. I suppose it would’ve been to easy to do a Rush song called “I think I hate you”
