Rush Limbaugh, Oct. 5, 1995, on the Excellence In Broadcasting network.

Try 8 years, given the reference above! Anyway, there's a big difference between "having a nose like a Hoover" and becoming addicted to a prescription drug in the course of medical treatment for chronic pain. In the quote above, Rush was referring to the former. As far as the latter is concerned, there's about as much moral baggage involved as in getting a stroke as a consequence of open heart surgery. Both are understandable risks run for legitimate reasons. Leave it to a liberal to be incapable of acknowledging, much less understanding, the difference.

What difference is that? Is Rush any less addicted, or is he a higher class of addict because his drug of choice was an opiate rather than cocaine?
