A Hypocrite In His Own Words

Let me say up front - I have no problem with the plea bargain (and that's what it was just as the arrest was an arrest). I'm a believer in rehabilitation, not jail, for users.

However, look at what Rush believes - or did

From Zay N. Smith - Chicago Sun-Times - Quick Takes

======================

Rush Limbaugh and prosecutors reach plea deal calling for drug fraud charge against him to be dropped if he stays drug-free. This is the humane and sensible resolution. As Limbaugh himself has observed about our drug laws:

"These tough sentencing laws were instituted for a reason."

No. Wait.

As Limbaugh himself has said:

"We're becoming too tolerant as a society, folks, especially about crime."

No Wait.

More to the point was when he said: "If people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."

No. Wait. . .


============

It all depends whose ox is gored.

    It's hard to feel sorry for a man who has made a career of dumping on those weaker than him.

    As a newly minted "lover-of-America" (courtesy of Rex Kramer, Danger Seeker), I found for the first time that Mr. Limbaugh and I were in perfect agreement. Then I got a bolt through my little frog brain.

    But, I'm not worried. You can't afford to be when you love America as much as I do. ;-)

    OOOOOO!! Kvatch!! Surely he is speaking tongue in cheek about our colorful froggie friend!!How could anyone possibly be serious about such remarks concerning our beloved frog and cohorts.?

    If he is serious, just know he's an annoying fly buzzing about, and you know what frogs do to insects.
    One flick of the masterful tongue and he's devoured alive. Blip!

    zJuBlu. You know what those liberal hippies say, "What goes around, comes around."

    Or, the Holy Scripture says, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." So-o, perhaps he did unto others as he wanted them to do unto him. :-)

    All cured, thank you very much. Turns out I only had 4 "freedom-loving" posts in me before the Kommandos came and knocked some sense into my little frog brain.

    I'm now back, refreshed, regurgitated, with all the bile and twice the snark!
