Small point, but Rush Limbaugh is not a criminal because he is a “recovering addict,” noble as that is. He is a criminal because he, by his own admission, trafficked in controlled substances. That he is also a hypocrite is not against the law, but it does make his side of the story as credible as the “shady” couple’s from whom he repeatedly and illegally purchased his own drugs of choice. That prosecutors, “watchdogs,” politicians and other self-interested, self-righteous and self-important poseurs can also be hypocrites does not make Mr. Limbaugh less culpable; it only puts him in like company.p>That said, of course it is highly objectionable to attempt to recover his medical records without his consent or his doctor’s consent. It seems to me there is plenty of evidence to convict him without violating doctor and patient confidentiality. Every American should vigilantly resist the alarming and continuing deterioration of our civil rights. The ACLU deserves all of our encouragement and support for taking on principled causes, even in defense of Nazis, the Klu Klux Klan, and Rush Limbaugh. After all, even those who would deny rights to others deserve protection themselves. Don’t they?

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
