What's Up With Rush Limbaugh's Doctor's Viagra Prescription?

Don't answer that question!

I'm still trying to get beyond the unmarried, über-Christian, self-proclaimed drug addict flying off to the Dominican Republic for a weekend of Gawd Knows What (Psst! Sex Tourism, Anyone?) —with his doctor's bottle of 29 Viagra pills—— while on probation for controlled substance abuse.

Rush's lawyer says it's no big deal.

Stop laughing.

Big deal or not, Rush is currently on probation, which means that breaking the law-- any law-- should nullify his plea agreement. But, hey! This is Rush, the darling lardass of the Bush administration.


Rush Limbaugh halted over Viagra at airport


A Customs inspector going through the baggage of conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh on Monday afternoon found 29 small blue tablets -- a supply of the impotence drug Viagra.

Trouble is, the name on the bottle wasn't Limbaugh's.

"Limbaugh said it was for his own personal use and that the name on it was his doctor's," said Sgt. Pete Palenzuela, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Possession of drugs prescribed to someone else is a second-degree misdemeanor. --snip--

A doctor had prescribed the drug, but it was "labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes," Roy Black, Limbaugh's attorney, said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.

Limbaugh was arrested on prescription fraud charges in April, and is bound by the terms of a deal he cut with prosecutors that dismissed those charges and allowed him to plead not guilty as long as he fulfilled certain conditions, such as random drug tests. A new charge could jeopardize that deal, said Palm Beach State Attorney's office spokesman Mike Edmondson.

I, for one, am waiting to see Rush's doctor frog marched out of his office.

And I have to admit that I've enjoyed the photoshoppers' paradise this morning:

Of course, Rush's doctor's Viagra pills are just the latest in a long line of Rush Limbaugh lies about controlled substances...

Hell, no, I don't feel sorry for Rush Limbaugh today. And I don't feel sorry for his stupid doctor, either.

Cue that Law & Order pizzicato!

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
