Limbaugh junky and hypocrite

By Noble Johns

If hypocrisy had a name it would surly be called “Rush Limbaugh,” the holy-than-thou racist who has for years spouted insults against Blacks and other minorities in the name of conservatism. If reports are true, now, this clown my go to prison for drug trafficking! He's checked into a drug recover program to put up a front as a junky! Limbaugh admitted Friday he is addicted to prescription painkillers and said he would immediately go into a 30-day treatment program.

Recently, Limbaugh gave up his job as an ESPN sports analyst Oct. 1, three days after saying on the sports network's Sunday NFL Countdown that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a Black quarterback succeed; which even the Klan admits was a racist statement.

"I first started taking prescription painkillers some years ago when my doctor prescribed them to treat post surgical pain following spinal surgery," Limbaugh said. "Unfortunately, the surgery was unsuccessful and I continued to have severe pain in my lower back and also in my neck due to herniated discs. I am still experiencing that pain. Rather than opt for additional surgery for these conditions, I chose to treat the pain with prescribed medication. This medication turned out to be highly addictive."

The reports of possible drug abuse surfaced at about the same time, first in the National Enquirer. The tabloid had interviewed Wilma Cline, who said she became Limbaugh's drug connection after working as his maid. She said Limbaugh had abused OxyContin and other painkillers.

Law enforcement sources who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed to The Associated Press that Limbaugh was being investigated by the Palm Beach County, Fla., state attorney's office.

"At the present time, the authorities are conducting an investigation, and I have been asked to limit my public comments until this investigation is complete," he told listeners. "So I will only say that the stories you have read and heard contain inaccuracies and distortions, which I will clear up when I am free to speak about them."

"I am not making any excuses," he said. His daily radio show attracts 2 million listeners who tune in on 600 stations coast-to-coast, according to Premiere Radio Network, which syndicates the show.

"You know, over the years athletes and celebrities have emerged from treatment centers to great fanfare and praise for conquering great demons. They are said to be great role models and examples for others. Well, I am no role model. I refuse to let anyone think I am doing something great here, when there are people you never hear about, who face long odds and never resort to such escapes. They are the role models. I am no victim and do not portray myself as such. I take full responsibility for my problem."

His radio show will continue with guest hosts, he said.
