02:09 pm - Rush Limbaugh, drug addict

rachelmills made the following lovely observation:


Here's a fun game. Every time a Drug Warrior uses the phrase "drug addict" replace with their favorite hero, Rush Limbaugh, and see if they'd still agree with the statement. Here's one from the Republican Drug Warrior Vermont Governor James Douglas, from his budget message speech on January 23, 2003:

As he said it:

"More than anything, these drugs threaten our way of life. All the values that make Vermonters great -our independence, thrift, work ethic and community spirit are endangered when drugs command our bodies. Addicts are not independent; they are dependent; they are not prudent in their finances, only concerned with funding their destructive habits; they are not industrious, but unproductive. When drugs come into our neighborhoods, violence follows and thugs and criminals dominate our streets. This is not the Vermont way."
