Maybe Rush's college frat days were like Iraq

"This is no different than what happens at a (college fraternity) initiation. And we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort ... because (the soldiers) had a good time. You ever heard of emotional release? You heard of the need to blow off steam?"
-- Radio commentator Rush Limbaugh on the Iraqi prisoner torture scandal.

Those comments probably shocked few of Limbaugh's 20 million listeners. Today, with the release of these pages -- reputed to be culled from Limbaugh's personal college schedule -- it's far easier to understand why. We can only speculate as to the authenticity of the following excerpts:

8 a.m. Monday: Another round of naked human pyramid with the other frat brothers. Not that this daily ritual isn't fun, but why do us husky guys always have to be on the bottom row?

(more)

I love his humor. As always, he is right on. One of the few bright spots writing for this ultra conservative paper.

3. Welcome to DU
:hi:

Rush got his radio start as a DJ in western PA (although I don't remember him from those days) and btw, Al Franken is right!

4. I don't think Rush graduated from high school
let alone go to college. He just makes everything up.
