    Like all those right wing hate radio guys he's a huckster and a charlatan who would have no compunction lying about some malady just so to boost ratings and profits.

    Could be a PR stunt, but he had his wife on to make his big disclosure. I think it's psychosomatic.

    I read this article about it where he never mentions exactly what the diagnoses is and also mentions the several times God speaks to him.

    Somehow, neither he or the "journalist" from The Blaze never seem to put 2 & 2 together..

    He's a bugfuck lunatic. Worst part is people seem to legitimately care what he thinks..

    You may be right, I remember a few years ago when Rush claimed he had lost his hearing and then it miraculously returned.

    I actually find him entertaining. I don't lean too far one way or the other and listen to radio on both sides. I didn't say I BELIEVE everything he says, I just find it entertaining.

    I was confused that he seems to be saying he is now cured, but that he only has 5 years left to live. Not sure what that means, or maybe I am missing something.

    Rush's hearing has never returned to normal. He has a cochlear implant. His loss of hearing was probably related to his addiction to OxyContin. Loss of hearing is a side effect.

    His oxy addiction most likely caused the deafness - it is a known side effect of taking tons of the drug. And as Short said, he then got the cochlear implants

    Is Glenn going to be writing a book about how healthy eating saved his life and start doing his show via ISDN line?

    What was the "bombshell" he was going to drop on Obama? I remember the media hype and "slow build" but never heard the outcome. I guess it wasn't such a bombshell after all.
