Socialized Bomb Squad Called To Limbaugh's House

Oh, Rusty! Is it really worth it, to live in this fevered, paranoid fantasy world of yours? (Much like Glenn Beck, who's also fixated on his personal safety.) Is it really that fulfilling to be the live-action version of Eric Cartman, a walking right-wing id? Maybe, somewhere in that pompous personae, you actually have a conscience, and you sensed that you actually crossed the wrong line yesterday:

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The package sent to Rush Limbaugh's home was nothing more than "a business opportunity," WPBF 25 News' Ari Hait reported Thursday night.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad was called to Limbaugh's Palm Beach home to assist the Palm Beach Police Department after the well-known radio host received a package from Pennsylvania earlier in the day.

A multitude of emergency vehicles rushed to the 1400 block of N. Ocean Blvd. before 6 p.m., where the conservative Limbaugh lives and does his popular radio show. His audience is so supportive of him that he has more than 101,000 Twitter followers despite not having sent a single Tweet.

"Supportive"? The word that came to my mind was something different, but never mind.

Limbaugh, who was home at the time, has a scanning device in his house, and a package that was screened appeared to show wires inside, so he called police.

Poor baby! I wonder what scary nightmare will pop out of your closet next?
