    A Huge Void in Our Hearts

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, indulge me for just a few minutes here. We all here at the EIB Network are experiencing a huge void in all of our hearts here today because of a death, one of our staff members, the very first staff member to join me 27 years ago in New York. Christopher Carson, "Kit," my trusted chief of staff, aide-de-camp, passed away today at 8 a.m. at his home in New Jersey after what really was a four-year battle, really valiant, never-seen-anything-like-it battle with essentially brain cancer. He thought that it was beaten back two years ago, but it came back again last fall with a vengeance.

    To give you an idea, December 19th, staff Christmas party, and he was fine, normal as anybody ever remembered him. Ten days ago I flew to New York to see him in the hospital, and it was the last day that he had any kind of a short-term memory at all. It was a good visit. It was a really good day. For him, too. I've always said that I wanted to be older, and I never factored something in about getting older, and that is people you know getting sick and dying. But Kit was in all ways, every way I can of think of, a special human being and person.

    He's exaggerating. Like Michael J. Fox and his Parkinsons.

    Rush is only sad because homeboy was his hookup for those dope-ass prescription pills that got him so high that he forgot how to hear.

    I'd cry, too.

    I'm pretty sure Rush's guy didn't ask people "what do you do for a living" and Rush didn't have guests to not book with the defense "they can call us if they want to be on the show".

    Always heard Rush was a closet homo... allegedly

    Also I could never figure out why Pizza Hut used him as a spokesperson at one point... and when he was really fat... it was creepy

    It is always interesting how a good conservative scares the shit out of the left.

    "Robin, I have an important announcement today, I regret to say Gary lost his long battle with gingivitis last night. His memorial is this weekend, I'm afraid Beth has a celebrity garage sale to attend so we won't make it but I did send a nice plate of cold cuts. Bobo will be replacing Gary after we return from our two week Arbor Day break"

    I haven't listened to his show more than a few seconds at a time since the advent of satellite radio. But I always wondered why he engendered so much hate. I think it was that he poked fun at liberals. He certainly didn't fit the stereotype of the religious zealot conservative they seem to hate so much.

    Wow that was pretty beautiful. As bad as everyone makes Rush out to be I bet he takes care of his staff.

    Can you imagine the uproar from the left if they did this today?

    pretty much

    he's a dj with a carefully crafted persona that entertains some, infuriates others and makes oodles of cash

    nothing wrong with that


    but rip to the other man---and my condolences to his friends(including rush) and family
