Rudy Guiliani and Rush Limbaugh suffered a crushing defeat in court today:

ABINGDON, Virginia (AP) -- Purdue Pharma L.P., the maker of OxyContin, and three of its executives were ordered Friday to pay a $634.5 million fine for misleading the public about the painkiller's risk of addiction.

Designed to be swallowed whole and digested over 12 hours, the pills can produce a heroin-like high if crushed and then swallowed, snorted or injected.

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani played a central role in negotiating on behalf of Purdue with federal prosecutors

The heroin producers don't have to worry much cuz they got Rudy arguing on their behalf - he'll make sure there's plenty of dangerous smack available on the streets for drugies like Limbaugh to score at will.

Yeah, and he'll probably let them keep buying model glue, Robitussin and Sudafed, too. That MONSTER!
