Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has been treated like a GOP leader since Obama's election, didn't mince words when it came to pontificating on a new New York tax plan which aims at the state's highest earners.

Limbaugh entitled his rant 'El Rushbo to New York: Drop Dead,' and said on his radio show Monday, "I'm going to get out of there totally, 'cause this is just absurd, and it's ridiculous."

But Limbaugh isn't the only one who doesn't mince words.

"Finally!" Jon Stewart shouted in relief on Wednesday's edition of Comedy Central's Daily Show before "revealing" the long-running conspiracy aimed at getting the conservative to leave the city.

"For years, for years, for years, New Yorkers have done everything in our power to get this guy to leave town," Stewart joked. "We passed laws making it tougher for hot dog vendors to sell along the streets. We hold gay pride parades and there are barely any gay people in the city so we shipped them in."

Stewart added, "We knew he was into drugs so we cleaned up Times Square."

Finally, the comic host offered Limbaugh directions along with his EZ pass then shouted out, "Get the f*ck out of here!"
