Rush Limbaugh is resting comfortably after being hospitalized for chest pains in Honolulu last night, and the shock jock reportedly told paramedics that he was taking medication for "a back problem." TV news outlets are reporting that straight, without commentary, as they probably should until more information comes in. After all, there are probably medications for "back problems" that are not painkillers like the ones to which Rush was addicted and faced jail time in 2006 for attempting to procure. At the time, Rush attributed his addiction to back pain.
