I may have been a little quick on the draw regarding Rush Limbaugh yesterday. I asked why a guy like Rush, an unmarried and un-paired conservative guy, would need to take Viagra to a country that has a thriving sex-trade (and, yes, some very nice resorts, as one commenter pointed out; though I don’t think anything precluded Rush from enjoying both on his trip). It seems I may have been wrong on at least one of my wild speculations.
Apparently, Rush may not be single. And he may not have gone to the Dominican Republic alone. But that still doesn’t explain why an upstanding, unmarried conservative guy would need Viagra. And, as this bit from Roll Call today explains, that still leaves some unanswered questions about the Viagra and why it was needed on this particular trip to the Dominican Republic.
Rush Job. Rumors were swirling around Capitol Hill and beyond Tuesday that Rush Limbaugh is dating actress Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Chloe O’Brian on the Fox series “24.” Though that still doesn’t explain the unauthorized bottle of little blue pills (shhh, Viagra!) that customs agents found in Limbaugh’s luggage at Palm Beach International Airport on Monday.
The conservative radio talk show host hinted on his show Tuesday that he went on a boys-only trip with the cast of “24.” Chloe is no boy. If you saw the papers over the weekend, including The Washington Post, there were photos of Limbaugh planting a big kiss right on Rajskub’s lips during a dog-and-pony event at the Heritage Foundation.
No one at Heritage seemed to know whether Limbaugh and Rajskub were more than photo-op kissing buddies. A spokeswoman for Heritage who asked not to be named told HOH, “Nobody knows. Several people have been asking today. I have no idea.”
Our guess is, probably not. Though why would Rush take Viagra on a boys-only trip? [emphasis added]
I’ve never watched “24,” despite having a thing for Keifer Sutherland going back to my high school days. And I don’t want to know or even think about him accompanying Limbaugh on a penis-pill powered drip through the Dominican Republic.
But the Roll Call piece does underscore an interesting question. Why would Rush Limbaugh need Viagra on a “boys-only” trip to the Dominican Republic? There are only two answers I can think of, and no matter which one is the right one, if the Roll Call piece has any truth to it I’d advise Ms. Rajskub to put the question to Limbaugh.
Because tossing Viagra into his trickbag for a “boys-only” trip suggests he was either planning to use it with “the boys” or whomever he could afford find once he got down there. Or maybe he was just bringing it along to score points with his new Hollywood friends. Because how cool would Rush be if he came to the rescue if one of the “24” guys forgot to bring his own blue pills?
Was it for him or was it “for the boys”? None of the answers I can think of jibe with Rush’s public persona. (Unless he’s a Coulter-esque whore who says whatever will get him paid, whether he quite believes it or not.) And I can’t imagine any of they passing muster with any woman whose boyfriend got busted for taking Viagra along on a “boy’s only” trip.
