Idiot Limbaugh III

Good old Rush. I could spend all my time writing in this blog about Rush.

But, this one really takes the cake. He has the audacity to be upset with the Associated Press because it reported last Friday that he had been arrested for a drug-related crime. He claims that was inaccurate.

Newsflash, Rush. When you surrendered to authorities last Friday, you were under arrest. Now, while it only took a couple hours for you to reach a settlement with the prosecutor, you were, indeed, under arrest.

For someone who can dish it out, he sure can't take it, even when it's true.

Even better, I loved how he framed this plea deal on his radio show on Monday:

"There was no arrest. There was no new charge, no new case. Case closed. Story's over. I won. Operative words: 'not guilty.'"

He won? What did he win? Here are the specifics of his plea deal on the charge of doctor shopping:

* Limbaugh will eventually see the charge dismissed in 18 months if he continues treatment for drug addiction

* Limbaugh has agreed to make a $30,000 payment to the state of Florida to defray the public cost of the investigation.

* Limbaugh cannot own a gun

* Limbaugh must submit to random drug tests

* Limbaugh must refrain from violating the law during this 18 month period

* Limbaugh must pay $30 per month for the cost of supervision and comply with other similar provisions of the agreement

* Limbaugh must eat some of his own words: "Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. ... And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."

So, what exactly did he win?

Isn't it amazing, that if a regular Joe gets caught he's scum of the earth.
In Limbaugh's words, put him out in front of a firing squad, becuz they are the very reason Crime is so high, but when he does it....

He linked our posts about ol' Rush the a##hole and called us some unhappy left bloggers.

Isn't it amazing how the truth hurts, when it lands on your front door step.
