Rush's Return

Rush Limbaugh didn't lose any of his bite on Monday when he
returned to his syndicated radio show after five weeks of what he
called "intense" rehab for a painkiller addiction. While he
stayed clear of rehashing his ESPN exodus, he did fire one shot
at the network. Taking issue with Massachusetts Senator Ted
Kennedy's use of the word Neanderthal to describe some of
President Bush's judicial nominees, Limbaugh--who left his job at
Sunday NFL Countdown on Oct. 1 amid backlash over his comments
about Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb--cracked, "It's just a
good thing Senator Kennedy didn't say it on ESPN, or he might
have resigned." --R.D.
