RUSH: Now, another thing, before we go to the break, this was last night, I was finishing show prep, and a dear, dear friend of mine in New York, is very, very much worried about me. "Rush, you're going to endorse McCain at some point, aren't you? You know, he's probably going to lose anyway, but if you don't endorse him you're going to get the blame. The whole Republican Party is going to blame you." I wrote back, "How? I'm irrelevant. I have been defeated. I have been relegated to the ash heap of the past." "No, no, no, you know that's not true. They wish you were there, but you're never going to go there," she wrote back. "You are going to get blamed for it." And I said, "No, I'm not." I mean, some people will. But I laid down the marker on this last week. Let me lay it down again.

Rush must have read our extensive thread about the apparent loss of influence of talk radio. Frankly, I think he had that discussion inside of his own head, might be lingering effects of his past drug use.

Ron Paul would decriminalize many drugs. Rush should embrace him.

So Oxycontin, aka 'Hillbilly Heroin', is what? Rush's condiment of choice?

Rush doesn't take Oxycontin. You are about 4 years behind the times!

It's easy to fall behind, I'll always choose listening to music over some hypocritical gas-bag. From what I've read he was always going off about drug-users while he himself was nothing more than a junkie with a bankroll.
