A racist *and* a junkie

Are we sure he never did time in the Big House?

Oh, I know everyone in blog-land and the greater collective gossiping universe, is buzzing about Rush's double news whammy. Leaving the ESPN brouhaha alone, I'm more tickled by the Rush Limbaugh's addiction to hillbilly heroin story.

It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

By the way, Rush's reported med monkeys, include:

- Hydrocodone
Anti-cough agent and painkiller similar to morphine. Side effects include anxiety, poor mental performance, emotional dependence, drowsiness, mood changes, difficulty breathing and itchiness.

- Lorcet
Brand name for the combination of Tylenol and hydrocodone, prescribed for moderate to severe pain. Side effects include dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, dizziness, tiredness, muscle twitches, sweating and itching.

- OxyContin
Potent time-release medication for relief of moderate to severe pain, known as hillbilly heroin because of black-market popularity in some rural areas. Side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, sweating, muscle twitches and decreased sex drive. A large dose can be fatal.
