Poetic Justice

How embarrassing is this? Conservative gas-bag Rush Limbaugh was detained for more than three hours Monday at Palm Beach International Airport, after authorities found a bottle of Viagra in his possession without a prescription. The private plane carrying the 55-year-old radio talk-show host had just arrived from the Dominican Republic and was being inspected by U.S. Customs agents, who found the unlabeled bottle of Viagra in Limbaugh's luggage.

The drugs were confiscated, and Limbaugh was released without being charged; however, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office plans to file a report with the state attorney's office for possible indictment on a second-degree misdemeanor violation.

Limbaugh had reached a deal last month with prosecutors who had accused him of "doctor-shopping" in order to receive illegal overlapping painkiller prescriptions. The charges were to be dismissed after 18 months of good behavior, as long as Limbaugh submitted to random drug tests; however this incident is likely to wreck any such deal.

Now if someone would only please arrest Ann Coulter. Her hate-filled, bigoted, sexist, and lewd speech, if not illegal, is certainly more offensive than El Rushbo getting clipped with a bogus bottle of Poke.

    if I understood this all, the doctor wrote the prescription to himself and then gave the pills to Rush, you would think that would be illegal!

    the ACLU defended Rush the last time, maybe he's trying to bankrupt them

    lbmuz <== heavy music???

    lbmuz = pound music, right? That's actually pretty funny.

    My brother was mad when they removed Rush from the country cable TV that we used to have. Mike thought that this guy was pretty intertaining.

    It amazes me that after his last ordeal that he would try to bring a prescription that was not filled for him through customs. I guess some are just hard learners.
