Rush Limbaugh's emergency hospital visit inspired fervent prayers from his fans and maledictions from his foes, but now the titanic radio host has emerged to speak for himself. Never lacking for an opinion, Limbaugh took the moment to praise "the best healthcare the world has to offer--and that is right here in the United States of America." He went on to describe the experience of his chest pain, saying doctors found "nothing" but urges people experiencing similar pain: "Don't mess with it."
The big line comes at around the 2:30 mark: "Based on what happened to me here, I don't think there's one thing wrong with the American health care system. It is working just fine, just dandy."
