Almost listened to Air America

Limbaugh clowns about Viagra stop
Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is joking about his police detainment at the airport yesterday for carrying Viagra in his luggage.

"I've been racking my brain. I'm trying to figure out how Bob Dole's luggage got on my airplane," Limbaugh clowned as he opened his national program today. "I told the doctor, I said, 'Look, I'm worried about the next election, not ... .' A misunderstanding. Now, things are what they are."

I almost tuned in to Air America to hear the endless running of viagra jokes. Seriously though, this was just plain stupid. Why he wouldn't take care to follow all the laws in this area is beyond me. (NOTE: We should all take care to follow all laws in all areas)

And for the record, I'm disapointed in his (and Dole's) use of Viagra. I mean c'mon, Republican men are supposed to be just that: men. Virile, potent, dominating men.

I can understand a limp-wristed liberal needing some help in this area (perhaps during "Sexy Tuesday" with Planned Parenthood, a great place to catch something itchy) but not a conservative.

I am surprised that they did not strip search him looking for explosives because of his cochlear implant.

I had a friend give me one of those little purple pills,he said they were fantastic. I told him i never have had a need for viagra.i work just fine, so i put the pills away in a drawer and sort of forgot about them. About a year later i was lucky enough to spend some time with a nice sweet lady and i thought...."Let's give those viagra pills a try". I went over to the drawer i had put them in and got one and dusted it off. I forgot what my friend told me to do,so i just popped it in my mouth while the girl wasn't looking and tried to swallow it down....without water. Damn thing got stuck in my throat.....I HAD A STIFF NECK FOR THREE DAYS!!!

For the record, no laws were broken. Rush complied with the law.

There was suspicion because his name was not on the label. However, he followed proper legal procedure for getting his Rx filled under his doctor's name for privacy (after all, if you were the pharmacist and you got an order for Viagra for Rush Limbaugh, you could make a fortune "accidentally" slipping a photocopy to the Enquirer).

Meanwhile, NO ONE ELSE on a private plane flying into Palm Springs EVER has their travel bags searched for drugs. That don't happen to "normal" rich people, because if it did, every rock star and actor on vacation would get busted.

This is clearly the result of an anti-Rush witch hunt on the part of local law enforcement.
