-- The secret drug tapes
-- His other pill suppliers
-- Drug abuse suspected of causing his deafness
Desperate to feed a growing drug addiction, Rush Limbaugh left a slew of messages on his supplier's answering machine seeking the powerful painkillers he craved.TBogg reminded us that: "In 1994 Rush married Marta Fitzgerald, a woman he met online (which explains so much). Again, we don't hear the pitter pat of little Limbaugh cloven hooves. " This by way of Lilith at A Rational Animal
And The ENQUIRER has obtained copies of those answering machine recordings along with hundreds of e-mails he sent to his former housekeeper Wilma Cline, who's admitted to supplying him with drugs. Shock and Awe updated his time line and it is a vital piece of work
If Bill Clinton were an addict, here's how Rush might spin it This article is too true a parody of Limbaughtomization at work - read this one it's a hoot.
Rush Limbaugh's battle with prescription drugs was so private that even his wife may not have known, it was reported yesterday. Marta Fitzgerald may have been just as shocked as his 15 million fans to hear her hubby's on-air admission: "What's interesting is that he apparently hid the pills from his wife," an unidentified friend told Newsweek magazine.
"What did he tell his wife when he checked into the treatment center, unless these were 24- to 48- hour clinics to clean out your system? There's an awful lot of mystery about it," the friend said. "He's a very private man," said his friend, ex-federal drug czar Bill Bennett. "Rush takes his problems into himself." Sources have told The NYPost that Limbaugh may have checked himself into the upscale Sierra Tucson facility in Tucson, Ariz.

You gotta love the H. L Mencken quote on Musings of a Philosophical Scrivner today:
The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.Although I disagree with his characterization of my friend Al (and I do call him Al) Gore; the Septic Tank may be on to something with his open letter to Al Gore
