"Rush" Job

More Late Night Humor

NBC’s comedy depiction of talkradio king Rush Limbaugh passed-out in vomit from drug abuse ignited backstage outrage at SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.

The animated sketch left one senior production source stunned and outraged, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.


“Would we have done this to [John] Belushi? [Chris] Farley?” the source said on Sunday from New York.

The source asked not to be identified fearing retribution from SNL’s executive producer Lorne Michaels.

“We’ve had more fu**ing drug addicts on this show through the years… more tragedy. I have lost count. Did we ever have some laughs about Robert Downey Jr.’s serious drug addiction?”

The crass montage which aired on NBC featured Limbaugh vomiting from drugs on a bathroom floor, in an apparent overdose.

Last year, Limbaugh announced to his radio audience that he was seeking treatment for an addiction to pain medication.

I guess it’s not such a bad idea to go to bed early!
