Saturday Night Live laughs at drug problems right of center, mourns those closest to them

Saturday night’s SNL episode had a little sketch where a marionette looking thing that was supposed to be Rush Limbaugh overdosed on pills, vomited and collapsed on the bathroom floor.

Limbaugh aside, that’s about the reaction the average viewer has had after watching the show in the past couple of years.

Strange how they can pick on Limbaugh, but leave unscathed onstage those they’ve helped scathe offstage (Farley, Belushi, Downey Jr., and countless other messed up SNL alum). The SNL lifestyle has put down more people than Don Rickles, and it’s tragic– Unless it happens to a conservative, then it’s comedy!
