I don't normally do politics, because a million other blogs cover it way better than I ever could, but I have to link to this defense of Rush Limbaugh in The Nation magazine. I mean, what are the odds?

Let me be on record as being strongly opposed to sending Limbaugh up the river, even though that is the penalty he wished to inflict on others. Just chalk me up as one of those bleeding-heart liberals who believe that drug addiction should be treated as a medical rather than a criminal matter.

It's nice to see that Mr. Scheer is consistent in his principles.
