OxyRush. Up to his old oxytricks?

I was driving midday and hit upon oxyRush while channel surfing. He sounded different than usual, like he was on something really strong. Although I haven't heard him in months and am no oxyRush expert to begin with, so I may be imagining things.

Maybe Obama's inauguration, coupled with the continuing drop in his listeners is becoming too much to bear.

He's still on now, at least in Boston, in case anyone wants to wade into his show and see if I'm nuts? (Well, nuts about this specific subject.)

2. Someone that overweight and that sedentary and that angry...

 

...can't be very healthy. I'm frankly surprised he hasn't had some kind of cardio-vascular event live on the air yet. He gets so hyper his blood pressure must be astronomical.

3. Another good candidate for Mao's cultural revolution camp.

Send him to the farms and let him eat cow dung to see how worthless his entire life has been. No human is a greater black hole than rush. If he was replaced by a pile of dung, the world would be a better place, a zillion times over.

6. Were you listening to NPR today too?

A horrific tale of the so-called cultural revolution I had not heard.

5. I remember after he "came clean" he portrayed himself as a victim. Poor Rush was just

doing what the doctors prescribed and innocently became hooked on a legally prescribed drug.

He never took responsibility for his part in the addiction or his actions.

In my long drug and long drug-free history, it's generally people like that who are never fully recovered in their hearts and souls. Like dry drunks.

I wouldn't be surprised if his concern about ratings could send him back into the loving embrace of Oxy. We're brilliant at justifying our behavior, his back could start causing him agonizing pain in order to make it okay. He'd convince himself it was legit and warranted. I speak from experience.

But I'm not Rush and he's not me and my armchair diagnosis/projection ultimately means nothing.

It will be interesting to see if your observation is correct.

8. I don't think that he's ever been off of Oxy or some form of opiate for very long, quite frankly.

Just my opinion.

9. Perhaps we should have mandatory drug testing for people who are regularly

on our public airwaves?

10. I'm not into mandatory drug testing for most people.

Unless the safety of others' is concerned; such as school bus drivers, LEOs, etc. I think it is a violation of one's privacy.

In fact, I think if more people smoked (vaporized, ate, etc.) marijuana, we would have a more peaceful society.

15. I basically agree with not drug testing. But...

I suspect that in the case of on-air screaming heads, drug testing would get a bunch of the crazy rightys off the air.

16. I do, too, but depriving everyone of a basic right is not worth it.

There's got to be a better way. I think that the recent boycott of Rush's advertisers might have just done the trick.

What gets me is that the religious crazies are all over the radio spouting their lies, too.

11. Yes. Heard him today as well.

Was drinking in his sweet tears the day after the inauguration and I noticed it also. His voice sounded slow, slurred and slightly deeper, as if (showing my age here) a record was on a turntable and someone placed their finger on it almost imperceptibly. I don't wish relapse on anyone, but let's just say I won't lose any sleep if he ends up being recalibrated by his demons.

14. Thanks for the confirmation

Hopefully he just goes off the air, in whatever way is least painful for him.

18. I listen to him often

So I will know what the jokers at work are going to be parroting. I consider it oppo research, albeit inconsequential. He is definitely sick or back on the oxy.

17. I actually listened to him a few weeks ago for

the very first time. I was shocked at how BAD he is. Not for the content, but delivery. it takes him 15 minutes to make a point, then he repeats it three times. I guess his audience need a lot of slow repetition. I found it unbearable.
