Rush Limbaugh and the Liberal double-standard

From WorldNetDaily...

Judge David F. Crow is prohibiting prosecutors from questioning Limbaugh's doctors about "the medical condition of the patient and any information disclosed to the healthcare practitioner by the patient in the course of the care and treatment of the patient."

"We are pleased with the court's ruling upholding the patient's statutory right of doctor-patient confidentiality," Limbaugh's attorney, Roy Black, said. "We've said from the start that there was no doctor shopping but Mr. Limbaugh should not have to give up his right to doctor-patient confidentiality to prove his innocence.

"The medical records that the state has seized and reviewed now for nearly six months show that Mr. Limbaugh received legitimate medical treatment for legitimate medical reasons. Mr. Limbaugh has not been charged with a crime and he should not be charged."

Limbaugh admitted on the air last year he had become addicted to prescription drugs he was taking for severe back pain, and he subsequently took himself off the air while he underwent rehabilitation.

Here's what I understand about this whole mess. Rush admitted to being addicted to painkillers. Some Liberal DA decided that was enough to subpoena all his medical records and his doctors to find out if he'd broken any laws. The trouble is there's this annoying things called the Fourth Amendment that was supposed to have prevented the Liberal DA from grabbing private stuff without evidence to support it.

Did Rush break the law? I haven't the foggiest idea, and neither does the Barry Krischer, the state attorney pursuing the investigation. Meanwhile Florida has drug dealers, couriers and all kinds of criminals wafting through on a daily basis confident in the fact that the authorities are way to busy pursuing Rush to bother with large shipments of cocaine and heroine.

And this is the state that almost stole the election in 2000 and later murdered Terri Schiavo. Unbelievable.

Oh, and recently it turns out that actor Colin Farrell has also admitted to addiction to painkillers. Will the LA Liberals demand the suspension of his Constitutional rights in order to wade through his medical records for anything remotely looking illegal?

You want to hear about some double standard. The ACLU has filed briefs on limpballs behalf in this case. Where's the usual RW ACLU demonizing now?

Even a broken clock is right at least twice a day.

Actually, they are just consistent and non-partisan.
