Rush Limbaugh: Deranged Drug Addict

Today must be a happy day for Rush Limbaugh. For years he’s been spewing out hatred and venom toward drug users. And now, the latest drug-addled pervert to be arrested is: Rush Limbaugh. What goes around...

The other day on his radio show, Limbaugh was gloating over a legal ruling against medical marijuana. He said “This is going to be a setback to the long-haired, maggot-infested, dope-smoking crowd.” Ah, those Compassionate Conservatives.

A few years ago, he said “Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. ... And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up.”

Careful what you wish for.

Now, of course, we know that Mr. Righteous has been partying on OxyContin all this time. He’s accused of doctor-shopping. He received about 2,000 painkillers from four different doctors during a 6-month period.

At least he didn’t smoke marijuana.

Take care,

I don't like seeing anyone addicted to drugs. I also don't like seeing Rush spouting the anti-drug crap when he has his own drug problem. I hope he is able to overcome his pill addiction, and if he can, I hope he also overcomes his addiction to telling untruths. Sometimes a person can experience an epiphany if they have an experience like a drug addiction with subsequent recovery... although I wouldn't expect Rush to suddenly renounce his paleoconsertavism and become a talker on Air America any time soon.

Matt: Yup, now more than ever.

Ariadnek: Cool, I'll link up to both of yours as well. (I'll link up to yours too, Matt.)

Snave: I agree, it's not right to make fun of Rush's drug addiction, but still...He's made a career out of stomping all over people who've been jailed for drug use. It's hard not to gloat when the shoe is on the other foot. But I'll try...

Well, you know, it's not the same for good ol' Rushie, because he gets the cute little pretty-colored pills that come in clean, labeled bottles from the doctor's office. They're not like the dirty street drugs poor people buy on the street, that you have to break up (with your own hands-gasp!), roll in some papers and smoke, or cook up in a dirty metal spoon then push it up through your hardened and scarred veins. Oh, no. It's not hypocritical for him to say all those ugly things about drug addicts, because when rich people become addicted, it's something a few months at Betty Ford can't fix.

Mags: Oh yes, two completely different things. You can't possibly compare the righteous, dignified Rush Limbaugh to some pinko hippie snorting marijuana and shooting LSD.

It's nice to see him being subjected to the same laws he thinks should only be for other people to obey. But he'll probably get slapped on the wrist by one of those liberal soft-headed judges he's always railing about.

NOW YOU WAIT A MINUTE TOM!

Rush may have taken the pain pills, but he never swallowed them.

My *only* regret is that this won't go to trial. I wanted to see that fat fuck take the stand and sweat it out like he used to waiting for his maid to return with a fix.

Erik: That's a good one -- He didn't swallow.

Jeremy: Yup, that would be poetic, watching him take the stand and have to sweat it out.

Great blog Tom, the shoe don't fit well on the other foot. But he got off easy on the drug rap.

Floyd: Thanks. Yeah he got off easy. Those damn liberal judges :)

I have to take prescription pain killers but for some reason I have pills left over when the date on the bottle says they should be used up. Am I doing something wrong, should I call Rush. Damn, I don't have the link, have you heard about the new drug laws in Mexico.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

David: What, you have pills left over? I'm sure Rush has some advice for you. Yeah, I heard about Mexico legalizing drugs. Maybe there'll be thousands of Americans sneaking over the border into Mexico.

There already are hundreds of americans sneaking over the border to buy drugs..the ones that are overpriced here.

Rush will someday meet his "maker"..and I can only hope that guy will look Rush in the eye and laugh his ass off as he sends that fat fuck down below..

Dusty: Yup, Rush will get his. It'll even out.

Limbaugh is a classic neocon example.

Now let me hypothesize about the other neocon example of the day, the gay basher. I know (or at least in what passes for my heart I know) that the venomous spew of the hateful Jesusistanis is at least in part because of something deep and dark within themselves that they are afraid to face.

Jolly Roger: I think you're right about both gay bashers and anti-drug fanatics. Both groups see something in themselves that they hate and they project their hatred outwards.

They should send him to prison where he cant get any drugs......er..well.

Rich people arent addicts they have a problem. See Kennedy family for examples.

James: Yup, rich people have "a problem." They're not addicts. It's like the definition of a kleptomaniac: a rich thief.
