Rush Stands Firm

Rush Limbaugh's attorney, Roy Black, issued a statement Monday that the Viagra that led to Limbaugh's three-hour detention by customs officials had been prescribed by Limbaugh's treating physician but labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for "privacy purposes."

On his radio program yesterday, Limbaugh joked about the matter saying, "The people at Customs were as nice as they could be. They just didn't believe me when I told them that I got those pills at the Clinton Library gift shop... " according to -- get this -- WorldNetDaily. (Apparently WorldNetDaily has embraced situational ethics for right-wing radio hosts.)

Although some wags have suggested the family values maven was bringing the Viagra back from the Dominican Republic -- a notorious sex tourist destination -- for Ann Coulter, RSR personally doubts she needs any help in that department.

Certainly, Limbaugh, a manly man now divorced for the third time, wouldn't have needed the male enhancement drug for himself. We're quite certain that a man like Limbaugh, a staunch defender of the sanctity of marriage who is probably as close to God as anyone but Pat Robertson, would never violate one of His Ten Commandments with a women to whom he was not joined in holy matrimony.

RSR doesn't know which particular infirm friend Rush was trying to help with the Viagra, but it's possible that the radio talk show host's charitable instincts will throw a monkey wrench into the deferred-prosecution agreement he reached with prosecutors over his abuse of OxyContin and other painkillers from 1998 to 2002 . Under the agreement the admitted prescription-drug addict must refrain from violation of any law.

If prosecutors conclude the radio shouter's Viagra possession to be a crime, he could face felony doctor-shopping charges again.
