The Onion Is a National Treasure

The Onion is a national treasure:

Limbaugh Says Drug Addiction A Remnant Of Clinton Administration: WEST PALM BEACH, FL--Frankly discussing his addiction to painkillers, conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh told his radio audience Monday that his abuse of OxyContin was a "remnant of the anything-goes ideology of the Clinton Administration." "Friends, all I can say is 'I told you so,'" said Limbaugh, from an undisclosed drug-treatment facility. "Were it not for Bill Clinton's loose policies on drug offenders and his rampant immorality, I would not have found myself in this predicament." Limbaugh added that he's staying at a rehab center created by the tax-and-spend liberals.

Leak Scapegoat Still At Large: WASHINGTON, DCA White House administration official who can be blamed for leaking the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame to the press remains at large, White House officials announced Monday.

I was hoping that some realy wingnut would find a way to blame Rush's problem on Clinton somehow. Actually I'm amazed it hasn't happened for real already.

After all, didn't Linda Tripp blame Clinton for her being ugly?

Prof. Delong-

It's sad you have to rejoice in someone's drug addiciton promblem simply because they hold different political views than your own. This shows an obvious insecurity in your own beliefs.

Feel free to factually point out the hypocrisies (war on drugs, etc.) but how does kicking a guy when he's down give you pleasure? Same goes for any republicans who had a few laughs at Kitty Dukakis' expense.

This obviously shows an insecurity in your own beliefs as it is the lowest form of argument.
