Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Drug Addict

I'm sure this had NOTHING to do with the Enquirer articles last week...

NEW YORK -- Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh announced during his radio program Friday that he is addicted to painkillers and is checking into a rehab center to "break the hold this highly addictive medication has on me."

"You know I have always tried to be honest with you and open about my life," Limbaugh said during a stunning admission aired nationwide. "So I need to tell you today that part of what you have heard and read is correct. I am addicted to prescription pain medication."

"Immediately following this broadcast, I am checking myself into a treatment center for the next 30 days to once and for all break the hold this highly addictive medication has on me," he added.

Note: The post title is a play on the Al Franken book title. I'm neither pro Rush or anti-Rush. He obviously needs help, and hopefully will get it.

We'll see. Addicts can often suceed if they have a motive to do so. Rich addicts have more of a problem, or more properly, can go a lot longer before the problem becomes acute.

I'm suffering from the lingering doubt that I spelled suceed correctly.
