    Are you kidding me?

    "In the interview, Mr. Limbaugh said the new contract would pay him about $38 million a year for eight years. He also said he would receive a $100 million signing bonus."

    It's better than some of the recent NHL signings.

    In a related story, six tanker trucks carrying Oxycontin were intercepted on their way to Palm Beach today.

    Roger Goodell thinks this is ridiculous.

    Not really considering unlike the rookie that Goodell was talking about Limbaugh has been doing his job at a very high level -- like him or not if you can't admit he is good at what he does then you are a fraud -- and proven he is worth the investment over the past 20 years or so.

    Not quite Howard Stern money, but close...

    Love Rush or hate Rush, he has a huge following...

    Stern's deal is bigger, but it includes production, studio and staff costs. Rush's deal is a paycheck.

    As many are now saying, to themselves:

    "Jeez . . . if I'd only known when I was young that sheer douchebaggery could pay so well . . ."
