The American Civil Liberties Union has supported Limbaugh's position, saying the seizure of medical records violated Florida's constitutional right of privacy and doctor-patient confidentiality.

So while Limbaugh was wrong, I do support his defense by Roy Black and the ACLU. He should not have to give up privacy in order to defend himself.

But the worst thing of all, the absolute worst- the thing that makes my blood boil; he should be left alone. Firstly, because drugs are the business of those taking them, I honestly believe that. Secondly, because medical records are priviledged. Doctor shopping is illegal, but it's not a serious crime in my mind, therefore it doesn't merit breaking patient/doctor confidentiality.

9 Dec 1993 "If [Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders] wants to legalize drugs, send the people who want to do drugs to London and Zurich, and let's be rid of them." Rush Limbaugh, admitted drug addict, inexplicably still lives in America.
23 Feb 1994 "I think this reason why girls don't do well on multiple choice tests goes all the way back to the Bible, all the way back to Genesis, Adam and Eve. God said 'All right, Eve, multiple choice or multiple orgasms, what's it going to be?' We all know what was chosen." (TV show.)
16 Dec 1994 On his daily radio show, conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh declares: "We have alcoholics and drug addicts in our society, don't we? And what do we say about them? 'Well, they can't help it. Why, it's genetic. Why, they have a disease. Why, put one thimbleful of scotch in front of them and they can die.' We totally exempt them from any control over their lives, do we not? Some athlete will spend two years snorting lines of coke. 'He can't help it. You know, it's -- it's just -- it's not -- it's -- it's genetic. These people -- they're predisposed to having this addictive syndrome. They -- they can't help.' Yeah, like that line of coc aine just happened to march into the hotel, go up to the athlete's room and put itself right there in front of him on his blotter."
May 1996 "I've warned to skip some topics like: Newt Gingrich's first wife. Bob Dole's first wife. Phil Gramm's first wife. Dick Armey's first wife. Rush Limbaugh's first wife. Rush Limbaugh's second wife. Rush Limbaugh's third wife." Al Franken, White House Correspondents Association Dinner.

After using his pilonidal cyst - a congenital birth defect - to
avoid military service in the Vietnam War, Limbaugh briefly
worked for radio stations in Pittsburgh, PA and Kansas City,
MO. Fired from both jobs, he worked as a wiener salesman for
the KC Royals baseball franchise, eventually slithering back into
the radio business.
In 1971 Limbaugh attended Southeastern Missouri University,
where, according to reports, he had a brief but heated affair
with Elliot Sanders. So gay is Limbaugh, guarantees Sanders,
that, "none of his marriages was ever consummated."
A pilonidal cyst or sinus is an abscess (localized collection of pus) or a chronic draining sinus (canal or passage leading to an abscess) located in the opening between the buttocks muscles. This cyst may have a deep cavity containing hair and may be without symptoms unless it becomes infected.
In May 2004 Rush's third wife, Marta, grew tired of never
having sex with her allegedly closeted homosexual of a
husband, and so asked for a divorce. Limbaugh complied after his
desperate wife agreed to never reveal the true nature of Rush's

Taxpayers fund Limbaugh/Kagan Tryst?
This is so sweet and romantic, so very Valentine's Day. Al Kamen reports in the Washington Post that Rush Limbaugh and CNN anchor Daryn Kagan [the young woman he left his third wife for] are taking a little trip to Afghanistan on the dime of US taxpayers, to create a nice piece of propaganda designed to ease the pain of legislators [who are beginning to fuss just a tiny bit about the gazillions of tax dollars being poured into the blasted-into-oblivion black holes that are Iraq and Afghanistan] -- and maybe to honeymoon.
