Pill-popping blowhard busted

To many, he's the voice of Red America, to others he's a bloated nuisance with an insatiable taste for prescription drugs. Yesterday, authorities at the West Palm Beach airport found one of the country's most beloved - and reviled - radio hosts in possession of pharmaceutical aphrodisiacs.

A search of Rush Limbaugh's luggage Monday by U.S. Customs and Border cops revealed he was in possession of drugs without a prescription. It seems that self-professed patriot Rush Limbaugh, 55, only flies his flag at half-mast, as cops yesterday found Viagra in his luggage. The name on the bottle's label was that of Limbaugh's doctor.

"We believe there may be a second degree misdemeanor violation, which is possession of certain drugs without a prescription, because the bottle does not have his name on it," said Paul Miller, spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

The drug was "labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes," according to the talk radio star's attorney, Roy Black.

A recovering Oxycontin junkie, Limbaugh last month reached a deal with prosecutors that would've made charges of "doctor shopping" - duping multiple doctors into giving you drugs - go away. If he had managed to stay clean for 18 months, the whole nasty business would've gone away. Oh, well.
