Can You Hear Me NOW, El Rushbo?
Limbaugh is his name. Drug addiction is his game. He calls himself "El Rushbo." Says any news he doesn't talk about, we don't need to hear. He says his talent is "on loan from God." Maybe that's where he got all those pills he's not talking about -- especially after his former housekeeper, Wilma Cline, and her husband, David, backed out of the deal and blew the whistle on him after years of selling him what they admitted were "large quantities" of prescription drugs they bought on the streets.
It's difficult to muster any sympathy for Limbaugh, who has for years relentlessly condemned others for succumbing to drug addiction. He has brayed for years that anybody foolish and weak enough to be an addict ought to go straight to jail. One strike and yer out. He has even less compassion for the homeless. "I can solve the homeless problem in New York City," he once chortled. "Just move all the homeless over one block where I don't have to see them on my way to work. Easy solution -- they're all alcoholics and drug addicts anyway...human flotsom..."
It's been almost two years since Palm Beach (Fla) prosecutors seized Limbaugh's records from four different doctors, and he and his attorney, Roy Black, kicked and screamed all the way to the Florida Supreme Court to keep them secret. They lost last week. Now, although it's been ruled that prosecutors properly seized the records, Black is insisting that he be allowed to go through them and decide which ones are relevant to the investigation...
Black said some of the medical information could be embarrassing to Limbaugh. Well, ye-aah. I can see where it would be embarrassing for El Rushbo to get caught red-handed breaking the law, illegally shopping for doctors willing to write prescriptions for enough OxyContin to make him go deaf -- not to mention the Hydrocodone, Xanax and morphine they rounded up for him...that's even worse than people finding out he refused to serve his country because he had a boil on his ass...
It doesn't matter how the conservatives and Dittoheads spin it, this is a criminal investigation concerning a man (sic) involved in massive criminal activity. If justice is served, this nation will lance one of the most festering boils on its own ass, and the world will be much better for it. If justice is served, Limbaugh's goin' down.
Can you hear me? Can you hear me now, El Rushbo?
