NPR Reports that Rush Limbaugh admitted to his drug addiction on air today
Advertisements [?]
NPR just reported that Rush admitted to being addicted to prescription painkillers today on the air, and states his intention to undergo a thirty-day rehab program.

I have personal experience with dealing with addiction issues, and the compassionate part of me understands and wishes Mr. Limbaugh the best in dealing with this serious health issue.

The side of me that despises hypocrisy absolutely loathes this despicable individual, in light of his previous stances on drug issues. This is just another example that it always seems to be the ones screaming the loudest about a problem of "virtues" always seems to be the ones that are grappling with those demons themselves. It is far easier to scream loudly that some extrinsic force provide moral compass, and cast blame on everything around them for being the evil influences that lead to immoral behaviors, when in fact, these individuals aren't willing to acknowledge that morality and behavior are issues that are dealt with from within. This is why it is called "personal responsibility." One of the things that addicts are taught in dealing with their addictions is that we are going to have lots of influences, and lots of feelings. It is the choices that we make, how we act on these urges and feelings, that defines our character.

Rush is a man of questionable character.
