  1. So, it turns out Rush was lying.

    All those months when he said he was innocent and it was a “liberal” prosecutor witchhunt, was all lies as he was just negotiating a plea bargain.

    I don’t think he or most substance abusers should be imprisoned but I do enjoy lying weasels being exposed for what they are.

  2. A cost benefit analysis of prosecution is about the dumbest arguement I’ve ever heard in my life. Lets just add another layer of beaurcracy into the mix. “Oh nooo’s that man has a defense attorney. We can’t possible prosecute him that would cost too much $”

    The only reason this cost so much is because somebody lied. Instead of standing up and taking personal responsiblity Rush hid behind his defense attorneys. Trying to garner public support for his cause. When will you conservatives call it like it is. Rush didn’t take responsiblity, he wasted tax payer money in the process and basically ends up with a sweet heart deal that he only could have gotten being a rich white man.

    Also lets be a little clear. Rush wasn’t charged with drug possession like the Mexican law. Rush was charged with FRAUD. I don’t think the Mexican law covers FRAUD. So Rush has to pay some of the costs … Why not ALL the costs?

  3. Thanks for the comments, but I don’t think either of you are understanding my point. None of my post is to be construed as a defense of Limbaugh. Quite frankly, it seems you are both reacting to seeing his name as oppossed to reacting to anything that I wrote.

  4. Rubyeyes,

    You miss the point entirely about cost/benefit. I am not talking about Limbaugh in a vacuum, but about the generic policy approach.

    Indeed, I was not arguing anything about Limbaugh’s specific case, but simply pointing to the behavior as an example of something that the law enforcement does spend a lot of time on. I question whether that is a good allocation of scarce public resources.
