I think the right's radio hero Rush Limbaugh should be awarded the award for Biggest Hypocrit of 2003. He sure deserves it.
Back in '96 Limbaugh was discussing how he thought law enforcement should deal with white drug addicts. He said, "Too many whites are getting away
with drug use. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them, and send them up the river." That burns in light
of his own little pill popping problem.
In the run-up to the '96 election, I could tell Rush had sold his soul to the dark side. It was at that point that I stopped listening to him. Little
did I know that he was breaking the law on top of that!
But, he said....
Now that he has been exposed for the hypocrit he is, he's been whining lately about how he should be treated more fairly. Why? He had no compassion
or empathy for those he thought should be "sent up the river." I sincerely hope Florida law enforcement holds him to the same standards he would've
held others to.
That exactly what he deserves for being so judgemental of others.
I love the way he describes the situation.. the attempt at wording. (He must've learned it from Klinton.) He calls his problem an addiction to
prescribed pain medication.
Here's another interpretation: PRESCRIBED lessens the blow attempting to sound legitimate, PAIN MEDICATION hides the
pill popping part. Rush is a pill popping junkie. He deserves to be - as he once said - prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is nothing
worse than a hypocrit.
Here's an interesting editorial on the subject:
Rush Limbaugh should stop whining

Stop! Don't touch that dial. There's nothing wrong with your radio. That piercing, high-pitched sound you hear is not a mechanical malfunction.
It's just Rush Limbaugh, whining into the microphone.
Silly me. And I thought conservatives were real men. You know: stand-up-and-take-your-medicine-like-a-man kind of men. Limbaugh is just the opposite.
He's a crybaby conservative. He wants to take his medicine - mountains of those little blue pain pills - and suffer no consequences.
