Rush Limbaugh said he would go to Costa Rica if it did. For nearly 100 years Presidents from Teddy Roosevelt on forward have tried to make inroads in this direction, but it almost seemed that the promise of Rush taking a hike was the magic shove that made it happen. I could see it.
And two guys from Brooklyn want to help us help Rush get packing. Salon.com's 3/23 story Go to Costa Rica already, Rush Limbaugh details the rich, ironic goodness of A Ticket for Ru$h which is asking for $1 donations to buy a first-class one-way ticket for Limbaugh; if the talk-show host refuses the donations will go to the Planned Parenthood Action Center. If they don't raise enough - hardly likely since according to the 3/23 Newsweek blog they had raised $1,158 - the money will go to Planned Parenthood.
Newsweek also says that Rush claims to have been "quoted out of context," though you can hear it right here. Now, it could be that he meant that if US health reform passed he would go to Costa Rica for health care - they do have universal health care (the link is from International Living, also from the HuffPo website) - you can have a listen and decide.
The only bad thing? He could still broadcast from there. Well, you can't win 'em all.
