Oopsi Doopsi Whoopsi Daisy: Rush Limbaugh Dead According To Wikipedia Error

203425“Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”  Once coined by Mark Twain could now be blurted by Rush Limbaugh from his hospital bed.

Looks like the folks at Wikipedia were prepared for the worst when it came to Rush Limbaugh. Actually they were a little too well prepared according to who noticed that the conservative political radio talk show host who was hospitalized was  pronounced dead on his Wikipedia page.

His bio did read earlier today:

Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (pronounced  /ˈlɪmbɔː/;born January 12, 1951, died December 30, 2009) is an American radio host and conservative political commentator. He is the host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, the highest-rated talk-radio program in the United States. It airs throughout the U.S. on Premiere Radio Networks.

That was posted shortly after midnight, EST. Rush is very much alive as of right now.  The ‘Oopsi Doopsi Whoopsi Daisy’ was later removed 15 minutes after Wikipedia pronounced him so.

“Someone should build a Twitter list of all those who have expressed hatred for Limbaugh tonight so their presence can be known,” wrote Republican strategist Patrick Ruffini. “I remain at a loss at how politics becomes so personal that many cheer for Rush’s death,” said “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough.

Wonkette said, “RUSH LIMBAUGH is in ‘serious condition’ at a Hawaii hospital, and we shall save the Death Jokes until he earns them the old-fashioned way.”
