ANOTHER MOUTHPIECE MUZZLED BY HIS OWN WORDS

Good ole Rush is at it again:

"WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Rush Limbaugh and prosecutors in the long-running prescription fraud case against him have reached a deal calling for the only charge against the conservative commentator to be dropped without a guilty plea if he continues treatment, his attorney said Friday.

Limbaugh turned himself in to authorities on a warrant filed Friday charging him with fraud to conceal information to obtain prescriptions, said Teri Barbera, a spokeswoman for the Palm Beach County Jail. He and his attorney Roy Black left about an hour later, after Limbaugh was photographed and fingerprinted and he posted $3,000 bail, Barbera said.

Prosecutors' three-year investigation of Limbaugh began after he publicly acknowledged being addicted to pain medication and entered a rehabilitation program. They accused Limbaugh of "doctor shopping," or illegally deceiving multiple doctors to receive overlapping prescriptions, after learning that he received about 2,000 painkillers, prescribed by four doctors in six months, at a pharmacy near his Palm Beach mansion."

I'd give him a pass, but for this:

"Before his own problems became public, Limbaugh had decried drug use and abuse and mocked President Clinton for saying he had not inhaled when he tried marijuana. He often made the case that drug crimes deserve punishment.

"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," Limbaugh said on his short-lived television show on Oct. 5, 1995."

This, I find interesting:

"Limbaugh reported five years ago that he had lost most of his hearing because of an autoimmune inner-ear disease. He had surgery to have an electronic device placed in his skull to restore his hearing. But research shows that abusing opiate-based painkillers also can cause profound hearing loss."

I've never really liked Limbaugh: he's a conceited, self-serving, loud-mouthed lying ass. A Republican whore who spreads his legs for any Conservative President.

It's what I always say: Be careful what you shoot your mouth off about, or it may bite you in the ass.

Now, if there was a god, Rush Bimbo would be going dumb, not deaf. As there is none, I guess we're stuck with this sock puppet, for the nonce.

I have Z E R O sympathy for Mr. Rush Limbaugh. It's not like he's going to be on skid row if he has a Palm Beach mansion to fall back on. The ride is OVER. Time to step out of the limelight and step aside. If you're going to be in the public eye you better conduct yourself better than that. His credibility (if he ever had any to start with) is down the drain. Good riddance. Another one bites the dust. Boop, Boop, Boop, Another one bites the dust yeah.

Hey, me too. Walk the talk, I always say.
I remember when he had his first show. I watched it, learned a thing or 2, & then realized it was all about his swollen ego. Never had controversy or debate.
I heard 1 person (on Letterman?) say: "Limbaugh's a cowardly demagogue."
Rush Bimbo is my nick fer him.
