Despite his hospitalization a few days ago, Rush Limbaugh says there's nothing wrong with his heart. Or the nation's health care system, for that matter.
The conservative talk show host just couldn't resist turning his own health problems into a political dig at a New Year's Day news conference in Honolulu.
Rush, who suffered chest pains that landed him in a Hawaii hospital Wednesday, said Friday that tests revealed nothing medically wrong with his heart.
"The pain was real, and they don't know what caused it," Limbaugh said.
Rush Limbaugh: I'm fine - and so's the system!
Doctors said he did not have a heart attack and he doesn't suffer from heart disease, however, and he says he is remaining cautious after the scare.
Turning from himself to politics, Limbaugh declared yesterday that he got the best health care in the world "right here in the United States of America."
Politicizing one's own heart problem? Well, would you expect less?
"I don't think there's one thing wrong with the United States health system," Limbaugh said, referring to Congress' massive overhaul of the system.
Here's wishing Rush a speedy recovery.
