Who's feeling your pain?

Not liberals. Not if your name is Rush Limbaugh:
What seems to anger the Left, other than Limbaugh's fame as the most successful radio star since Jack Benny, is that Rush has been a long-term opponent of illegal drugs. ...

Florida authorities ... are very lenient in dealing with drug addicts, and officials say Limbaugh's plea deal -- which will spare him jail time if he continues treatment for his addiction -- is not unusual.

Yet this has not satisfied the Left.
These are the same leftists who for decades have told us that illegal drug use is a "victimless crime," despite the numerous crimes committed by dope addicts, or the general social harm caused by those under the influence of intoxicants, legal or otherwise. ...


Perhaps Rush Limbaugh's experience with drug addiction will make him more sympathetic to others suffering similar problems. But, given the enormous law-enforcement resources which an elected Democratic prosecutor has devoted to investigating Limbaugh, we suspect Rush will be even less sympathetic the next time some Democratic official accused of wrongdoing cries, "Partisan witch hunt."

Go read the whole thing!

And here comes Rep. Major Owens, on HuffPo, proving our point. Not to mention lefty bloggers like this one, this one, and this one.
