If last night's edition of The Daily Show is any indication, few New Yorkers are viewing Rush Limbaugh's decision to permanently decamp from part-time digs in New York City, in order to avoid onerous municipal and state taxes (which by Limbaughian standards could simply mean any taxes) as anything other than a cause for celebration. "Finally!" Jon Stewart exclaimed to the delight of his studio audience, adding, "For years, New Yorkers have done everything in our power to get this guy to leave town." Tactics included holding gay pride parades, kicking Rush's potential narco connects out of Times Square, and stocking Chinatown with "Chinese extras." "He was the Truman in our city-wide Truman Show," said Stewart.

He then ended the segment by saying, "If you're heading out from Uptown, take 42nd Street west to Ninth Avenue take a left, go down four blocks, Lincoln Tunnel's on your right, and you know what? Here's my EZ-Pass. Get the fuck out of here."
