Rush Admits he’s a drug addict

“Rush Limbaugh is telling his fans that part of what they’ve heard about him is true: he’s addicted to painkillers. In a statement on his radio show today, the conservative commentator said he’s “not making any excuses” and takes full responsibility for his problem. He says he’s no role model and refuses to let people think he’s “doing something great here.” Limbaugh says he’s twice checked himself into medical facilities to try to break his dependence on prescription drugs. He says his doctor prescribed the pills years ago after his spinal surgery, and he kept taking them for pain in his lower back and neck.”
Boo hoo! The poor, poor guy. Here’s what he’s had to say about drug abuse by others:

“What this says to me,” he told his listeners that day, “is that too 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.”
