(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh tends to inspire either love or hate, and for one Milwaukee teacher, it's apparently the latter. After the right-wing radio host revealed his lung cancer diagnosis, high school English teacher Travis Sarandos tweeted, "limbaugh absolutely should have to suffer from cancer. it's awesome that he's dying, and hopefully it is as quick as it is painful."

Milwaukee High School of the Arts placed Sarandos, who has since deleted his Twitter account, on leave the following day, USA Today reports. (Read more Rush Limbaugh stories.)
