Obviously, the White House feels as though it's OK to fly Air Force One low over New York City, but jokes about terrorist attacks are out of the question.
And speaking of which, how do you "wish" an administration would fail? Are some people so twisted up in being right (pun) that they would hope for their nation's government to fail to further their career and political agenda? Apparently, yes. This is a transcript from Limbaugh's own web site:
My hope, and please understand me when I say this. I disagree fervently with the people on our side of the aisle who have caved and who say, "Well, I hope he succeeds. We've got to give him a chance." Why? They didn't give Bush a chance in 2000. Before he was inaugurated the search-and-destroy mission had begun. I'm not talking about search-and-destroy, but I've been listening to Barack Obama for a year-and-a-half. I know what his politics are. I know what his plans are, as he has stated them. I don't want them to succeed.
I hope he fails." [interruption] What are you laughing at? See, here's the point. Everybody thinks it's outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, "Oh, you can't do that." Why not? Why is it any different, what's new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what's gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it? I don't care what the Drive-By story is. I would be honored if the Drive-By Media headlined me all day long: "Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails." Somebody's gotta say it.
Well no, somebody doesn't "gotta say it" Rush. The really sad thing is that this guy has an audience. I could go on but I think his words speak volumes.

Go figure. Pills don't work. Maybe ... just maybe ... people are sad and depressed and a pill isn't going to make that big a dent. I'm just speculating because I'm not a doctor or a drug salesman. Actual medical studies show that the pills don't work, but the pharmaceutical companies say that they do. Whom to believe.
