"Pay close attention to that man behind the curtain!"

Might as well face it...

Addicted to more than just hate, Rush Limbaugh has admitted that he's "addicted to prescription pain medication." Of course, he doesn't admit how he obtained them, for that would subject him to the same scorn with which he has viewed others less fortunate than himself. On this very topic, he has said things like:
"[T]oo many whites are getting away with drug use. Too many whites are getting away with drug sales. Too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too." [LINK]
Normally, I wouldn't advocate that sort of treatment of drug addicts. But it's not especially Rush's addiction that I have a problem with. It's his hypocrisy. To which precinct did he say he was going to turn himself in? Oh, he didn't?

But is the left going to get its "trifecta"? A few days ago, it seemed that Limbaugh, the White House "leaker," and perhaps Arnold Schwarzenegger would be knocked off their high horses and wind up on their asses. Well, the jury is obviously still out on all three, though the neocons are already whining that the "liberals" are picking on them. Ha! Maybe the media is getting a bit gutsy, but when the New York Times is still (9/29/2003) publishing the LIE that Saddam Hussein "threw weapons inspectors out in 1998" (after having corrected this information once before, back in 2000), one can't really call it a "liberal" paper. (Note: they did correct this on 10/4/2003 after hundreds of people complained, but the recurrence of this "mistake" is inexcusable.)

I hope to put up a response to the California recall results soon, but I'm still doing research.
