OK, let me get this straight. You have your shrink, a Dr. Strumwasser (say it again slowly…you’ll giggle I guarantee it), prescribe himself Viagra – remember now, STRUMWASSER. He does this so you’ll be saved the embarassment of having it in your name. Then you get caught with prescribed medicine that is not yours…after having gotten off with some high priced lawyering for being addicted to Oxycontin and doctor shopping to get more. Anyone see a trend here at all?
What is the defense? My shrink prescribed me a woody.
I love hypocrisy, but not quite as much as irony…and boy do we have a huge “cache” of irony here.
Strumwasser, who is Limbaugh’s psychiatrist, told authorities he “agreed to have his name on the label in an effort to avoid potentially embarrassing publicity for the suspect,” according to a filing by the prosecutor’s office.
“Thus, the medication contained in the subject pill bottle was legitimately prescribed to the suspect by his physician,” the filing said.
Nice job on avoiding the embarassing publicity. Got a mulligan? WTF kind of legal system do we have anyway? “Thus, the medication contained in the subject pill bottle was legitimately prescribed to the suspect by his physician”. Really? I’m gonna remember that the next time I try prescription drug fraud. I will admit some ignorance in the ins and outs of Viagra, but do psychiatrists really prescribe such things? Seems more like a urologist job, but what do I know? I’d really like to have heard the doctor visit:
Limpbaugh: Doc, you know I had to cut way back on the pain meds. Now I’m having this little problem with El Rushbo Junior.
Strumwasser: Your son?
Limpbaugh: No, Doc! JUNIOR! (looks down)
Strumwasser: Ohhh…junior! Why don’t you get some Viagra or something.
Limpbaugh: Well, I did doc…but, uh…it’s bad. I’m gonna need alot more. Can you get me some more? I gotta keep up with Mary Lynn afterall.
Strumwasser: Ah, Mary Lynn. Good one. Nice trade up there Rushie.
Limpbaugh: Indeed. Headed out for the DR on vacation Stevie…hook me up holmes.
Strumwasser: Got it. This will surely save you from some embarassment – in more ways than one if you know what I mean…yuck, yuck, yuck.
I guess we’re gonna have to update the PLH moniker to include this latest bit. Rush Limbaugh: Fat ass limp dick drug addict.
Update: With his divorce from Marta in 2004 marking the third such attack on the sanctity of marriage, how long until wingnut bloggers, Rethuglican officials, and rightwing fundamentalists condemn Rush for such Godless behavior? Best to keep breathing, one assumes.
