Limbaugh medical files given to lawyers

A judge Wednesday gave some of Rush Limbaugh's medical records to prosecutors, allowing their long-stalled investigation into whether the conservative commentator illegally purchased painkillers to move forward.

Circuit Court Judge Thomas Barkdull III also returned some of Limbaugh's records to his attorney, Roy Black.
Prosecutors seized the medical records after learning Limbaugh received about 2,000 painkillers from four doctors in six months at a Palm Beach pharmacy near his oceanfront mansion.

On Wednesday, Black said only 1,863 of the pills Limbaugh received were painkillers, and they were to be taken over a period of 217 days, which equals a lawful dose averaging out to just more than 8 pills a day.
Black--who Limboob once said you wouldn't hire unless you're guilty--is absolutely right. I myself make a habit of taking "lawful" rather than "prescribed" doses of all medications my physicians write for me, and I maintain a steady stable of no fewer than four internists at any one time. They're busy folks, don't you know, and I wouldn't want to inconvenience them by asking them to write refills for stuff like controlled substances every two months.

Maybe Limbaugh and Rove could be locked up together with Judith Miller.
That should prove to be interesting
