Limbaugh is special

Rush Limbaugh's attorney stated:

"Suddenly an elected public official could not ignore the name Rush Limbaugh. They are looking to publicly embarrass him and affect his radio program. . . . Why is Rush Limbaugh the only person treated like this in America?"

Of course, he is perfectly right. Limbaugh is being treated like no one else in America. If Limbaugh were black, or even a poor white, regardless of what the facts are - and it looks like Limbaugh may have been laundering money and doctor-shopping in order to obtain quantities of drugs that it was medically impossible for him to have consumed himself - he would be in jail now, without possibility of bail, and would never get out.
