Of course everyone this morning is writing about this story, in which talk-radio king Rush Limbaugh was caught at Palm Beach International Airport with a big fat bottle of Viagra tablets and no prescription, but who but BigCityLib can put the story into its broader political context?
For it was only a few days ago that I suggested on this very blog that elements of the Conservative Moral Agenda were driven by the transference and refetishification of sexual drives made unfufillable by reflex malfunctions down in the old torpedo room.
And here is the evidence, albeit making its appearance in one of the Canadian movements American Spiritual Forefathers!
CNN does not tell the rest of the story, by the way, which is that airport officials, when they discovered Mr. Limbaugh's bottle of little blue enablers, ordered him to drop his pants to see what the problem was. And it isn't exactly a fact that he was "released", either. Mr. Limbaugh simply walked away while airport staff were doubled over with laughter.
Such stories bode ill for Canada. Oh Ralph Klein, Stephen Harper, and Vic Toews! Must the whole nation suffer from your erectile disfunction?
