Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said tonight that he will be spending the next four years "in exile" in Costa Rica.
The controversial provocateur says he cannot fathom living another four years in Obama's America and will be retreating to a private villa near the Costa Rican resort town of Puntarenas until 2016.
During a live broadcast of his eponymous radio show, the veteran broadcaster explains that he may be leaving, but he won't be silenced:
"America I did not come to this decision lightly. It"s something I've thought long and hard about. Two weeks ago I made a silent promise to myself that if Obama won, I'd leave the country. And I plan on making good on that promise."

"The fact is America is no longer the America we grew up in. Obama has turned her into a socialist paradise ruled by the Marxists, the femminazis and radical transsexual pirates."
"I'm not giving up on America. But I am staging a strategic retreat in my fight against the left. Like General Lee at Gettysburg, we may have lost the battle, but we will win the war."
"I want every one of my listeners to know that I'm not going quiet. I've spoken to my producers, my distributors, and my advertisers and we've all agreed that the show will go on. I'll be doing The Rush Limbaugh Show live 5 days a week from Costa Rica."
Limbaugh won't be giving up his American citizenship, and will thus be forced to continue to pay 'confiscatory' U.S. taxes. He has threatened to make the move to Costa Rica before, most notably during the debate on Obama's healthcare reforms.
