Rush was ebullient today. In his own words ...
It's Over: The Operative Words are "Not Guilty"
From my point of view, the end result will be as if I had gone to court and won, but the matter is concluded much sooner, and at much less expense for both me and for the public. I have spent thousands of hours and millions of dollars with lawyers over the past 2.7 months [I think he meant years] fighting this at every stage. We finally got a favorable ruling from the last judge to hear a ruling, rule on a motion in this case, in which he basically told the government that, "Well, you can talk to Mr. Limbaugh's doctors but you can't ask them anything that'll help you unless he waves his privacy privilege, and I don't think Mr. Limbaugh is going to do that."
There was no arrest; there was no handcuffs. There was no perp walk; there was no charge. I have not relapsed. I am as healthy and happy as I have ever been, ladies and gentlemen. A lot of that is due to you and your continuing loyalty here. You've stuck. We haven't lost one radio station. We haven't lost one advertiser. We have not lost one business associate through all of this, and we haven't lost any audience. We've gained audience, and, you know, I'm in awe of it.
As to the random drug tests: I have been undergoing random drug testing for two years and seven months. I never know when they're going to happen. I have not failed one yet. Folks, I haven't even craved a pain pill since I got out of rehab.
Rush likes the Newsweek story: [I]t's amazing. It's straightforward and it's fair.
First the honest, if not friendly, Newsweek article on Rush. And now, as Mark Finkelstein points out, Lordy! Lauer Recognizing Rush is Right?: If Lauer did not explicitly endorse Rush's take, he came close, certainly recognizing that Rush's point merited a response.
Not everyone finds justice ...
