Come Clean About That Boil on Your Butt, Rush!

| February 19, 2003

A recent Buzzflash New Anal-ysis ?examines? the question of whether Rush Limbaugh was excused from military duty during the Vietnam war because of a purported anal cyst. The catalyst for this inquiry?a December 2002 episode of his radio show in which a caller reminded Limbaugh that he once mentioned his success in dodging the draft by claiming to have a boil on his butt. Limbaugh dismissed the allegation as ?[J]ust a bunch of Internet B.S.? To refute his denial, Buzzflash points us to a well-reserched entry on Snopes, ?the definitive Internet reference source for urban legends,? corroborates the claim by citing Paul D.
