The return of I Don’t Like The Drugs But The Drugs Like Me
We haven’t checked in on Big Pharma™ for about a week, so let’s see how his rehab is going:
“Bush is the president. He shouldn’t be responding to all this chattering going on that’s beneath him. John Kerry is just a senator. The president’s not going to respond to individual senators, even if he is a candidate for president.”
“If you want to talk about Bush on TV and so forth, let’s talk about some of the Republicans in the Senate who don’t have the chutzpah to stand up to the people in the Senate who are dealing them dirty as well.”
“What bothers me is that the guys going after the bad guys are the guys being attacked. The bad guys are getting a pass and Bush is being attacked for an appearance on television! I think it’s a dangerous road to travel.”
As you can see, Rush is in an amphetamine rage over Manuel Miranda having to take one for the team for hacking Senate computers and then leaking them to the press, when what we should really be ready to pop a rhoid over is those dirty dealing Democrats and what was in those leaked memos. Because the real crime is what is in those memos, and not the person who leaked them to the press.
This is just another example of how drugs can impair your ability to think clearly and consistently:
Prosecutors investigating whether Rush Limbaugh (search) illegally went “doctor shopping” for prescription painkillers can examine his medical records, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Limbaugh’s attorneys argued that the seizure violated the broadcaster’s privacy. Martz said the records were taken to ensure they were not tampered with or destroyed.
Limbaugh recently admitted his addiction to painkillers, blaming severe back pain. He took a five-week leave from his afternoon national radio show to go into rehab.
During his Tuesday show, Limbaugh accused authorities of leaking information to damage his reputation, and said prosecutors have a political agenda.
“The Democrats still cannot defeat me in the arena of political ideas. And so now they’re trying to do so in the court of public opinion and the legal system,” Limbaugh said. Prosecutor Barry Krischer disputed the allegations.
That consistency hobgoblin must really have him spooked.
Or it’s the crank talking…
