Yes, Rush Limbaugh has left New York City in protest of the increased taxes that were enacted last year. I've made mention several times of the fact that notorious right wingers like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and various other Conservative media personalities and pundits who preach the right wing, low tax, low government services lifestyle live in New York City, the most Liberal city in America. I guess the dichotomy got to be too much for Rush. Is it too much to hope that Coulter and the rest will be moseying down the road soon too?
Rush's final act of separating from NYC came in the form of selling his ten room, four terrace condo on Fifth avenue for $11.5 million as reported in the Wall Street Journal. The condo overlooks central park on East 86th street.
As soon as I heard the news, I couldn't get Ray Charles song "Hit the Road, Jack" out of my mind.
Rush still lives in a Liberal area and that is among the funnier things about this protest. Rush's radio show continues to be based out of Palm Beach, Florida and he has a waterfront house there. Democratic registration in Palm Beach county greatly exceeds that of Republicans by a margin of 372,000 to 236,000.
