Ah, Scrat -- he's made that statement in so many different form over the years, I'm not going to bother to look back in archives to pull it up. You can choose to deny it if you will but it won't make a lick of difference. Why do you think the press is being so hard on him?

Sorry, the "everybody knows" response is no response. If he said it so often, you could easily find me an instance.

Show me where Rush Limbaugh said "throw all the drug addicts into prison".


Sure, buddy. How many you want?

Quote:
"Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."

-- Rush Limbaugh, October 5, 1995 show transcript.

Quote:
"What this says to me is that too many whites are getting away with drug use, too many whites are getting away with drug sales, too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."

Quote:
"It's kind of like sentencing. A lot of people say that we have a heavy sentence for this crime and a light sentence for another crime, and what we ought to do is reduce the heavy sentence so it's more in line with the other. Wrong. In most cases we ought to increase the light sentence and make it compatible with the heavy sentence, and be serious about punishment because we are becoming too tolerant as a society, folks, especially of crime, in too many parts of the country."

Here's another one, just so you can't say that some liberal website put false words into Pigbaugh's mouth:

Newsday (scroll to the bottom)

That one went out over the Associated Press,and appeared in several hundred newpapers, broadcast media, and websites on October 12.

(You probably shouldn't say 'prove it' when you already know it's true, because it makes you look like a fool. 'Course, it makes you look like a fool if you didn't know, so either way...)

That enough, or you want more? :wink:

Great post, PDiddie.

I guess that clears that up.

Thanks, PDiddie -- I was about to do that this morning and you beat me to it. Anyone who can even think of defending Rush Limbaugh for this gross hypocrasy must be on drugs themselves.

Elmer Gantry, Bill Bennett, and Rush Limbaugh sat together in a Las Vegas diner ordering breakfast. They were all featured speakers at the Hypocrites Anonymous World Conference (a digression to set the scene: poor Elmer was crammed into the side of the booth with Bennett because Rush said his pilonidal cyst was hurting, not that there would've been any more room over on that side anyway).

Preacher Gantry said, "What do you fellas want to do after the seminars?"

"I'm just going back up to my room to watch NFL football," Rush said. "I expect that some black quarterback will lead his team to victory, but I'm equally certain it will also be the damned liberal media's fault--pardon my Freedom, Pastor, " Rush winked. "Besides, my housekeeper--I brought her along for this trip with Marta and I to reward her for her excellent work of late--is preparing a nice little salad of cabbage and blue babes--errr, bleu cheese."

"I'm just going back to my room also, Minister," blurted Bennett. "Those heathens in the casinos make me sick, gambling away the rent money with every pull of the slot. I wish I could get to the elevator without walking past them."

Just then Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart ran up to their table, breathless.

"Guess what, Elmer! You'll never believe what we just saw! Jessica Hahn, Lulu Bains, and Debra Murphree are all Jello-wrasslin' over at Rick's Cabaret!"

"Now, you fellas know I don't go in for that sort of thing, at least not in public; and neither should y'all." The two defrocked pastors turned and ran before Elmer even finished his sentence.

"Never did think those two were the sharpest tools in the shed..." Gantry said. "Only got religion once they got caught," Limbaugh agreed. "Shouldn't have played the milk money; they didn't have to put their family at risk," Bennet nodded.

The waitress brought breakfast and the three men began eating, without saying a blessing.

"I've gambled all my life and it's never been a moral issue with me. I liked church bingo when I was growing up. I've been a poker player*," Bennett said, as a bit of scrambled egg launched out of his mouth onto Gantry's plate.

"Ever since those discs in my back and neck began to herniate, I've had to take medication," Limbaugh mumbled through a mouthful of sausage. "You know, over the years athletes and celebrities have emerged from treatment centers to great fanfare and praise for conquering great demons. They are said to be great role models and examples for others. Well, I am no role model.*"

Gantry nodded and spooned Cream of Wheat onto his white toast. He watched as the waitress--a matronly redhead with "Doris" pinned above her ample left breast--poured coffee refills for the table.

"I pray that someday the United States will be a moral nation*," Gantry said. Hear, hear, the Bookie of Virtue and the Man with Talent On Loan from God said in unison.

As he ate his breakfast, Gantry's mind wandered to something Sister Sharon Falconer said to him once:

"I guess I've been around sanctimonious folks too long. You're amusing and you smell like a real man.*"

How he longed for her! But he knew those times were gone forever.

As he glanced from one morbidly obese moralizer to the other, occasionally bumping elbows with Bennett, he couldn't help but think, why am I here? I never got caught pants-down, red-handed. I was always smart enough to skate over the thin ice without falling through.

Then he remembered: oh yeah; I'm fictional. :wink:

(* are their actual words.)

PD - Thanks for the citations. I actually didn't know one way or the other, but I am used to people claiming that this or that person said such-and-such, and people rarely seem to actually know what they are talking about.

Now, show me where Rush is saying he shouldn't be held to account for his actions. Thanks. Cool
