What the Limbaugh/oxycodone scenario ultimately proved is that Limbaugh is a hypocrite. But I think most sensible folks realized long before his drug addiction problem that the guy is an arrogant jerk. I would never waste any of my time watching or listening to his ridiculous rants. I have to give some credit though for being able to make millions playing fools.

I recall his reaction to the death of Jerry Garcia..."just another dead doper" I find that exceptionally ironic because they both had a taste for the same type of dope.

I also love the "accidentally addicted" angle. "Whoops!"

Being addicted isnít what the hypocrisy is all about, nor is it a crime. Hell, Iím addicted to a few things, windsurfing and Starbucks are just two examples. The reason Rush was charged with fraud was for doctor shopping where he illegally deceived multiple doctors to receive overlapping prescriptions to the tune of about 2000 pills from four different doctors over a six month period. But luckily, for him, heís white and wealthy so he got a pass.

By the way, everyone wants to know how a guy who gets 100 days a year draws a disability check?

I have to say that his addiction doesn't make him a hypocrite, but acting like some sort of principled character while being an addict behind the scene makes him one. Kind like some of the politicians and preachers out there who were gay, but at the same time voiced strong anti-gay messages.

Did you know???
VA Disability Compensation Pay:
The amount of basic benefit paid ranges from $123 to over $3,100 per month, depending on your level of disability and number of dependents.
Note: You may be paid additional amounts if:
you have very severe disabilities or loss of limb(s)
you have a spouse, child(ren), or dependent parent(s)
you have a seriously disabled spouse
These benefits are tax-free.

Inquiring minds would like to know more....

Come on , Mike. We really need an explanation.

You spew endlessly about your vaunted athletic prowess in windsurfing and any other sport you pursue. And at the same time, you tell us you're collecting a taxpayer funded disability payment, while excoriating anyone who dares to propose taking care of the less fortunate in our society.

You are currently looking as hypocritical as Limbaugh and similar characters.

This cancels any possible credibility on your part, particularly given your silence on this issue since it's been raised some time ago.

Let's hear it, bud. I can't wait.

isobars has been called out, and he's clearly wimping out big time. Where isobars really screwed up is calling attention to an active disability claim that he was making now. Hell, the guy is probably 66 years old now, and he retired at 45.

After all his bragging about his standout performance during much of his life on so many arenas, one has to wonder about an active duty claim originating from so many years ago.

For such an rabid anti-government ideologue, things just don't add up. Is this guy blatantly scamming the system trying to cheat and collect from our government?

Oh, silly me. I forgot whom I'm dealing with. The answer is recreational drugs.

Oh, silly me. I also forgot who your news sources are. Obama admitted in print to using cocaine. Even though he quit (?), it shows a lack of character.

And ... don't bother; the same went for Bush and his alcohol, but Bush isn't running for reelection.
