More Republican values
The painkiller Oxycontin, otherwise known as hillbilly heroin, is apparently the drug of choice among prominent family-values Republicans such as Rush Limbaugh and this guy.

Republican media adviser R. Gregory Stevens, who was found dead in the Beverly Hills, Calif., home of actress Carrie Fisher on Feb. 26, died of an overdose of cocaine and the painkiller OxyContin, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
A spokeswoman at the coroner's office read to The Washington Times portions of the report, which was completed Friday. "Cocaine and OxyContin," the spokeswoman said when asked by phone what was the cause of death. When asked specifically whether there was a drug overdose, she said "yes."
Mr. Stevens, 42, was an associate with the powerhouse Washington lobbying firm Barbour (as in former RNC chair Haley) Griffith & Rogers and had traveled to Los Angeles to attend the Academy Awards.
