It's a context thing again.


Apparently, sometimes personal privacy is a good thing (emphasis added):

Rush Limbaugh was detained for about 3 1/2 hours at Palm Beach International Airport after authorities said they found a bottle of Viagra in his possession without a prescription.

The 55-year-old radio commentator's luggage was examined by U.S. Customs and Border Protection after his private plane landed at the airport around 2 p.m. from the Dominican Republic, said Paul Miller, spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office...

"We believe there may be a second degree misdemeanor violation, which is possession of certain drugs without a prescription, because the bottle does not have his name on it," Miller said.

A doctor had prescribed the drug, but it was "labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes," Roy Black, Limbaugh's attorney, said in a statement.

Rush's Viagra-related privacy: Critically important.

Your personal privacy, according to Rush? Not so much.

AFTERSNARK: I'm betting Daryn Kagan is infinitely grateful about having bailed just in the nick of time. That CNN water cooler gossip can be so cruel, you know.

Rush Limbaugh with Viagra.

Great. As if we needed him to be a bigger dick.

If it's not painkillers, it's boner pills. It seems Rush is being followed by some kind of a pharmaceutical cloud.

No.

No, I don't want to even think about it.

There are some beings who are simply not permitted to have a sexual identity in my mind. They must, MUST, forever remain androgynous automatons.

No.
