Limbaugh says silence until he finds out legal situation
CBS Evening News just ran a report on Oxycontin and featured PigMan's problem with it. The news report made a point of showing that he resorted to bashing Clinton. They played a clip of him saying, "People have accused me of being Clintonesque..." Then he went on to say his silence was until he learns what will happen to him legally.

Something interesting about Oxycontin is that it is a longer, cheaper high. An addict they interviewed made the point that heroin will last three-four hours but Oxy lasts far longer. Likewise, a typical painkiller will be taken every two to four hours but Oxy only has to be taken every eight hours. So like many others, I again ask the question: why did the PigMan have so many pills? If anything, the nature of this drug is that one would need fewer pills to get high.

A drug official says Oxycontin is America's newest epidemic.

2. If he's going to be silent, he should just shut up.

3. Junkies like to make sure they don't run out.
He probably had built up a resistance to it, too.

Four thousand OxyContins in 42 days will kill a family of polar bears.

7. Unfortunately, many of the Hitler Youth will follow der Fuehrer's example
I get many, many spam emails that promise drugs like these using the spammer's "doctors". And Limbaugh's getting off Scot-free would send a signal that it's socially acceptable.

8. He's been on this kind of stuff since 1998, went deaf in 2001.
Yet all his supporters are saying he got hooked around the time of his deafness. American Otological Society study says Vicodin can cause sudden deafness.

I think he was on Vicodin first and that made him deaf and then he changed to Oxycontin.

11. Well, sauce for the goose.....
Like they always said about the Clintons, "If he did nothing wrong, why doesn't he just say so, and tell the TRUTH?

12. As much as it pains me to say it...
Pigboy is probably right not to talk about it.

He's already seriously lawyered up, and the lawyers have undoubtedly warned him to avoid saying anything about the subject as there is an investigation involving him.

There's always the chance he won't be able to avoid shooting his mouth off, though.

13. Did they play the full quote - where he said
". . . He was waiting to see what to lie about. I'm not waiting to see what to lie about. People, you can trust me."

May not be verbatim, but that's the gist of it.

Rush said, all those times, "He's waiting to see what to lie about." Now that the microscope is turning toward him, he's trying to paint himself as angelic and victimized.
