    Clinton, McCain emerge as comeback winners in New Hampshire primary



    WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Clinton pulled off an unexpected narrow victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday, dramatically rescuing her bid for the White House in a tense battle with Barack Obama.
    Clinton, who's fighting to become the first woman in the Oval Office, mounted a surprisingly strong showing after bracing for a second defeat following her devastating third-place showing in Iowa.

    Republican John McCain also nabbed a major comeback victory, putting him solidly back in his party's nomination race.
    While Obama, vying to make history as the first black U.S. president, scored big among independents and voters between 18 and 24, Clinton attracted lower-income voters and seniors and did best among voters citing the economy as their top concern.
    But a big factor for Clinton was women voters, who had gone over to Obama in large numbers in Iowa. Nearly half in New Hampshire were once again supporting her, while Obama got only a third.

    I'm 6' 1". It's just the beginning of the song. They could turn it off after that.

He is often a blowhard/showman.

    His personaly struggles with addiction have been noted both in the press and on his own show. He has openly admitted that problem. Due to some legal advice he had to limit his discussion of some of the extraneous details, but he admitted the problem with painkillers.

    However to be a hypocrite as suggested I would say he'd have to demonstrate that he goes "easy" on the Republicans, and rips the "Democrats" when they commit the same infraction. However I've found that he'll routinely rip into a Republican, just as quick and hard as he will a Democrat, and sometimes harder if it is on an issue where the Republican has betrayed his constituency.
    Rush has been defending Obama this week. Hell, he has had more good things to say about the character of Obama then most of the PUBs lately.

    I haven't seen him do or say anything that felt made him a hypocrite in any way. He worked his way up to the position he is in. He earned his status. All he preaches is that anyone can do the same thing if they so choose to. I don't think that makes him a hypocrite. Believe it or not, he does care about the less fortunate. He just wants to see them rise up and not depend on the government for everything.

    My point exactly, he isn't afraid to praise or rip a person on either side of the aisle. Like I said, he's a lot of things, but I don't see hypocrite as one of them. Not to say HH can't say he does or doesn't like him, but the word choice probably could've been better.

    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...

    If you listen to what he says today, as crazy as it may sound, you will find that 9 times out of 10 he turned out to be right.

    Drug rush: Limbaugh to listeners: I belong in jail! - Rant


    Reason, Dec, 2003 by Jacob Sullum

    RUSH LIMBAUGH MAY not be arrested, let alone spend time behind bars, for illegally buying narcotic painkillers. "We're not sure whether he will be charged, a law enforcement source told CNN in early October.


    "We're going after the big fish, both the suppliers and the sellers."


    Following up on a story The National Enquirer broke on October 2, CNN reported that the conservative radio commentator's name had come up during "an investigation of a black market drug ring in South Florida," where Limbaugh has a home. A former housekeeper told the Enquirer she had sold him tens of thousands of hydrocodone and oxycodone pills during a four-year period.




    If Limbaugh escapes serious legal consequences, there will be speculation about whether a pill popper who wasn't a wealthy celebrity would have received such lenient treatment. Still, the distinction between dealer and user drawn by CNN'S source is both widely accepted and deeply embedded in our drug laws.


    That doesn't mean it makes sense. If drug use is the evil the government wants to prevent, why punish the people who engage in it less severely than the people who merely assist them? That's like giving a murderer a lighter sentence than his accomplice.


    Another argument for sending Limbaugh to jail was suggested by the talk radio king himself. In an October 3 column, Newsday's Ellis Henican cited remarks Limbaugh made in 1995 concerning the drug war's disproportionate racial impact. "What this says to me," Limbaugh told his listeners, "is that too many whites are getting away with drug use.... The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them, and send them up the river too."




    Before we start building a boat for Limbaugh, perhaps we should consider the arguments for letting him keep his freedom. The strongest is that it's nobody's business but his if he chooses to pop Lorcet and OxyContin, as long as he's not hurting anyone else. When the painkiller story broke, the New York Daily News reported that Limbaugh's lawyers "refused to comment on the accusations and said any 'medical in formation' about him was private and not newsworthy."


    On his show the next day, Limbaugh already was moving away from that position, promising to tell his listeners "everything there is." A week later; be announced he was entering treatment for addiction to painkillers he began taking after back surgery. "I take full responsibility for my problem," he declared, while blaming his situation on "highly addictive medication" (thereby reinforcing the opiophobia that has led to scandalous undertreatment of pain in this country).


    The quick switch from privacy claim to public confession is reminiscent of Bill Bennett's humiliating retreat on the issue of his gambling. Before renouncing the habit, the former drug czar noted that losing large sums of money on slots and video poker hadn't "put my family at risk." Nor does it seem that the time Bennett spent in casinos interfered with his personal or professional life. It certainly did not keep him away from TV cameras mad op-ed pages.


    Likewise, drug use did not stop Limbaugh from signing an eight-year contract reportedly worth $285 million in 2001, or from maintaining a demanding schedule that included three hours on the radio five days a week, or from retaining his status as the nation's leading talk radio host, reaching nearly 20 million listeners on about 600 stations. If Iris housekeeper hadn't ratted on him, we might never have known about all those pills.


    I'd say that's how it should have been, except that Limbaugh seems to prefer a different approach. "If people are violating the law by doing drugs," he told his radio audience in 1995, "they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up." Maybe the government should respect his wishes.
