On another thread a poster dug up a quote from Rush's doctors at the House Clinic stating that his hearing loss was not caused by overuse of medication...which if this "maid" story is true, he would have been using in the time frame before his hearing loss. Surely they had investigated his medication thoroughly and wouldn't knowingly lie in a press conference. Even if they knew he took the stuff but didn't think it caused the hearing loss (hydrocodone=Vicodin, which can cause hearing loss if abused) you'd think they wouldn't touch any of that with a ten-foot pole. The House Clinic is the finest hearing clinic in the world and I can't imagine they'd jeopardize their reputation. Something isn't right here. I also have trouble believing that anyone as smart as Rush would send emails on this subject, knowing how the left would be gunning for him. You never know -- I mean, who woulda thunk Bill Bennett was a high-stakes gambler? -- but something just seems odd here, especially combined with the ESPN story.
I'm sick of conservatives always being the "good guys" who fall on their swords -- and in this case it was totally unnecessary. The leftists (who kept quiet when Dusty Baker made totally racially idiotic comments earlier this year!) twist and turn and demagogue and suddenly the truth is what they've made it, not what really happened. (I see some of the same stuff going on in the "CIA" scandal story, media playing hide-the-ball with pertinent facts, blowing it up with gusto...) They're gonna be crowing about this "kill" for years. Just once, whether it's Frist and filibusters or Rush and ESPN, I want to see a conservative say "I'm not going to take it anymore" and push back.

I don't think Rush would place his entire future on the line , with a chance of going to jail. This isn't right, anyway you cut it. The man is worth at least $200 million. No one with Rush`s open intellect and public stature could be that destructive. Hmmm.

I want to go on the record as being in complete agreement with the others who believe that this is an organized effort to destroy our beloved Rush. This has B.S. written all over it.
Prayers are being sent up, and I encourage others to do the same, for however long it takes.
"Just once, whether it's Frist and filibusters or Rush and ESPN, I want to see a conservative say "I'm not going to take it anymore" and push back."
SEE where his "new tone" has gotten us?
Are you listening, GOP? ...ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
This is WAR and you don't win wars by appeasement!!!
