This, from Newsweek:
Will the Dittoheads forgive him? Probably. Gary Bauer, president of the conservative organization American Values, drew a distinction between a crack addict and Limbaugh?s brand of addiction. ?From a moral standpoint, there?s a difference between people who go out and seek a high and get addicted and the millions of Americans dealing with pain who inadvertently get addicted,? Bauer told NEWSWEEK.
Uh, I don’t think the level of drugs he was taking was an “inadvertant addiction”. When it comes down to it, as they said on Stern this am, he needs to just admit that he liked getting high and that he is now an addict. It’s as simple as that. And that is where all addicts, whether it’s drugs, sex, booze – are alike. They chase the high at whatever cost.
Hypocrisy really bugs me. And this one is right at the top of the list for that. I hope that’s the last we see of Mr. Limbaugh. (hahah Mom)
And this comment from Table Talk:
Yeah, if Tommy Chong can go to prison, why can’t Rush? Seriously, Ashcroft sics his dogs on a silly, 65-yr-old comedian for selling “drug paraphernalia” online, but Rush scores thousands and thousands of pills in a parking lot and we’re supposed to pray for the fat bastard while he does his third stint in rehab?
And, Dear Media, it’s not “prescription medication” if you don’t have a fucking prescription! If a doctor is not prescribing them for you, YOU ARE BUYING ILLEGAL DRUGS! Duh!
I say HUZZAH! to that poster!
This reminds me of an event in seventh grade where, for a joke apparently, we voted Margie Duel and Thomas Scally in as our student council reps. Now, Margie and Thomas were somewhat of the class outcasts for various reasons. I don’t even remember who thought it up or why but I do remember Mr. Houston giving us all hell when they were out of the room. He said “You made your bed by voting for them. Now you must lie in it.” And they were the worst reps we ever had. But that was our fault for being smartasses in the first place. (well, it was 7th grade, you know!)
And so, Kuhleefornia, I give you the Duel/Scally “Made your bed” award. I wish you the best of luck when you lie in it. I have a feeling the mattress is going to be really bumpy.
My man, Mike Grier, gets suspended for elbowing a guy in last night’s Toronto game. Apparently, the NHL is cracking down on shots above the neck and this one totally fit that description. So, perhaps it was deserved but we all know Mike G (Hardest working man on the ice (tm me)) doesn’t play dirty so we will assume it was inadvertant (much like Rush’s pill addiction, hey? hehe)
Last night ended in a 2-2 tie. We play Montreal tonight.
Me and my hostees (Witchybitch, Atomic, Snapper, Lauren and Twinnie) all thank you very much for your time, skills and patience. Without you, we would be, uh, not blogging. Just sitting around bitching to each other about stuff and not bitching where everyone can see it.
And this from Snappa himself: Mad props to Lisa for all her hard work on getting us back up and running. Well, it’s my understanding that she didn’t actually do all the work, but she did bug the shit out of some guy that managed to get things fixed.
Some guy = Mark! :)
So, from the bottom of our bitchy hearts, Mark, THANK YOU!!
