ALSO KNOWN AS BRITANY SPEARS SYNDROME......After a couple of days of listening to friends and foes of Rush Limbaugh defend and bash the chatterbox's latest medical faux pax, I have come to the conclusion that there are way too many people in this country with way too much time on their hands. There are so many more issues in this country that are more worthy of discussion and debate than Rush and his indiscretions.
At this point, I should say that I am no particular fan of Limbaugh. Quite frankly, I could care less one way or another. I think his days of relevance as a political commentator are fast declining. There are some young lions coming up through the ranks that are much more informative, engaging, and entertaining than Limbaugh is. People like Laura Ingram, Sean Hannity, Jay Severin, and (like him or not) Alan Colmes are much more relevant and captivating on the radio. These folks and others like them are the future of talk radio and deserve all the success that comes their way.
As for Limbaugh's latest run in with the law, all I'll say is that his latest problems (again of his own making) are pretty stupid. He should've known better considering his history and track record in this area. All you can do is shake your head and say..."Oops, He Did It Again!"
