Open thread – major malfunction – and a Rush bonus
Crazy news of the day: Man with faulty penile implant gets $400K. The therapeutic boner device wouldn’t go down.
Charles “Chick” Lennon, 68, received the steel and plastic implant in 1996, about two years before Viagra went on the market. The Dura-II is designed to allow impotent men to position the penis upward for sex, then lower it. But Lennon could not position his penis downward. He said he could no longer hug people, ride a bike, swim or wear bathing trunks because of the pain and embarrassment. He has become a recluse and is uncomfortable being around his grandchildren, his lawyer said.
The manufacturer, Dacomed Corp., said there was nothing wrong with the device.
Once the evidence was “presented”, I don’t see how Dacomed could have made that claim.
And in related boner news, something almost too good to be true. El Rushbo ran into a little difficulty at the airport after a flight from the Dominican Republic in his private plane (hat tip to Paul, pointing from AB).
Customs officials found a prescription bottle labeled as Viagra in his luggage that didn’t have Limbaugh’s name on it, but that of two doctors, said Paul Miller, spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
A doctor had prescribed the drug, but it was “labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes,” Roy Black, Limbaugh’s attorney, said in a statement.
Customs took his little blue pills away. Since the bottle didn’t have Rush’s name on it, this may be a second degree misdemeanor violation.
I had to make a quick Freepi run…
No harrassment here! I wonder how many hollywood types get treated like this! Sue the pants off ’em Rush!
This was leaked so that the MSM could ‘leak’ the fact that Limbaugh uses Viagra, and thus mock him for it. I would suspect that it will be hard for them to do so when he owns the CBS affiliate in Miami, as I suspect he soon will
you can bet Rush is on a special watch list because of what he has gone thru. He most likely has been advised by his lawyer that he will be a target for searches and he probably had a letter from the doctor explaining why the meds were labled differntly. Someone leaked the story to embarass him. It’s no big deal to me but it will be a big deal to those who will ridicule for it. So what…it won’t cause people to not listen to him and if anything, it might cause people to have more sympathy for him as it shows the left will stoop to any level to destory a person.
The libs cannot hide from the truth, so they harass those that expose their criminal, lying, cheating, Godless ways. Give ’em Hell Rush!!!
To win the War On Drugs, some eggs must be broken.
The sleazoid lib war on Limbaugh continues. Can you imagine the thermonuclear ‘privacy’ uproar if this kind of leaking of personal, confidential medical info was inflicted upon a liberal, say Pinch Sulzberger???? I’d guess that ol’ Pinch needs lots of viagra with his boy-toys, but if any CUSTOMS official ever leaked that info to the media we’d have a frickin’ constitutional crisis on our hands. The hypocrisy and double-standards of the libs never ceases to amaze me, even if it no longer surprises me.
