Looks like Rush Limbaugh may be a step closer to answering for his illegal drug use. The only reason I’m cheering is the utter hypocrisy of the man on drug use. He had no compassion for those who’d gotten addicted to anything, despite his own continuing addiction.
The other thing is that this proves that being an addict also does not necessarily lead people into the gutter. Sure, he was addicted, but he also managed to run a national daily talk show and increase his audience during his addiction.
That his own experience failed to give him pause about demanding everybody else go to jail for drug addiction (or who are just casual users) isn’t surprising, but it does give you a reason to wonder the next time he calls somebody else “hypocrite.”
