I just can’t understand people who worship hypocrites and cult figures — from L. Ron Hubbard to George W. Bush, there are charlatans and liars and downright bastards out there who manage to wrap the weak-willed around their fingers and no matter how judgmental or hypocritical they might be, to their admirers they can do no wrong.
I offer the following as an example of that kind of nonsense. What’s most amusing about this one is the fact that we’ve been through this before, and the cult leader didn’t seem to learn his lesson the first time. What’s double amusing is that he obviously has some sexual dysfunction problems, as well.
(CBS) MIAMI Sources have confirmed to WFOR-TV in Miami that conservative talk show host [Rush Limbaugh] has been detained at Palm Beach International Airport for the possible possession of illegal prescription drugs.
Limbaugh was returning on a flight from the Dominican Republic when they found the drugs, among them Viagra.
Limbaugh entered a plea deal back in April in a previous case where his charge of fraud to conceal information to obtain prescriptions was dropped under the condition he continue undergoing treatment for addiction.
Limbaugh had admitted to being addicted to pain killers on his radio program and had entered a rehabilitation program prior to that arrest.
Now, why aren’t those law-and-order Republicans demanding jail time for Limbaugh? Oh, right. He’s a wealthy, right-wing white man, so he deserves compassion.
