Limbaugh attacks Michael J. Fox AGAIN
Limbaugh "apologize" for being "wrong" that Michael J. Fox "didn't take his medication," then suggested Fox over-medicated himself "so you would really, really hate Republicans"

1. He is an obese drug addict who has erectile issues
If he wants to make someone's Parkinson's an issue, then his health issues should also be on the table (before Rush eats those too).

4. My friend's total right-wing brother is now hating Rush. Her brother's
wife has Parkinson's disease and is close to death, at less than 60 years old. She has suffered for many years. He's outraged that Rush would be critical of the disease and would make fun of it. He's living the horror of it so it really hit home for him.

Finally.

15. he should never have attacked Michael!!
Many people love Michael J Fox whether they are republican or democrat and since he got that disease, many people have shown compassion and empathy for him.

I saw a poll a few days ago that said that, in the areas where his commercial was shown, people said their opinions of democrats increased about 10%.

After Rush attacked him, I bet they favored democrats even more!!

You just don't accuse someone of faking an illness........and you certainly don't accuse Michael J Fox!!

29. Not only that
You don't accuse someone that is passionate about curing a progressive disease (whether you agree with them or not) of lying about their symptoms.
Old school Republicans would shudder at that--it is over the top.
I don't think that because it is Michael J. Fox that it is the issue nearly as much as everyone knows how he WAS--and can see now how he is.
It brings home a very uncomfortable point that it could easily happen to someone they know.
I believe with all of my heart if the Reagan's had allowed photographs and video of President Reagan at his worst--it would have persuaded many that sit on the fence of stem cell to jump off. However, that being said, I totally understand why they didn't, and respect their right to privacy.

25. He called Janet Reno "Janet 'Shake and Bake' Reno"
made fun of Chelsea Clinton's looks at 13 years old, and makes fun of the homeless.

6. I said elsewhere,
If the media (msm) wants the repugnican party to be synonomous with scum, liars, drug addicts, pedophiles, adulterers, hate mongers, well ... whatever.

7. You know what is so grand right now?
Rush has hitched his wagon to the imploding BushCo star--and we'll see the demise of Limbaugh.

He's such a hopeless wannabee. He's sold out his supposed conservative principals--and has become
a Bushbot. The entire conservative movement is rejecting Junior.

I can't wait to see Rush go down with these thugs. He's such a schmuck.

This Fox thing is horrendous. Limbaugh isn't worthy enough to utter Fox's name. Fox is a blessing.

17. I truly hope you are right on this,

but wondered all week if he was abandoning Bushco via the Fox nonsense. He made little or no mention of the Iraq flip flop, seemed to spend all his vitriol on the "fly by media" and his other RW targets. Distancing?
We'll see.

24. Fox is beloved.
America watched him grow up. He is our son. Our brave son who is sick and still doing his best.

10. I just can't believe
that talent on loan from god didn't get it right the first time, especially with his experience with over-medicating.

HEY RUSH, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!!!?

14. You know why hasn't anyone asked Rush
If he skipped his oxycontin to be a bigger asshole, or if going without makes him that way? Why is just the man with the debilitating illness 'on trial' in the public eye?

to make himself taller.

20. I don't get to listen to Randi Rhodes very much, so I don't
know how much of an issue she has made of Roach Leadbutt's chemical self gratification, but this should open the doors to an all out attack.

Little need for culture or niceties. Of course, battling at his level is a bit like the heroic experimenters searching for a treatment for yellow fever.
I'm thinking that "I'm a Nazi" tune of Rush's is probably the all time best attack and defense. He can't stand being ridiculed.

30. She let Rush have it.
And she let Katie Couric have it too, for insuinating that MJF had the burden of 'proving' he wasn't faking....among other things.

32. Thank you. Wish I could have heard it.
If we can get this criminal edifice to crumble, the entire shebang will come down, the credibility gap will become obvious, the neo-clowns will lose all credibility and a bunch of millions of people will be bewildered, wondering how the hell their brains were so scrambled for so long.

21. Rush over-medicated himself because
I listened to him talk about Michael and thought... wow, maybe I do really, really hate Republicans. Then I quickly remembered Limpbaugh is just a doped up entertainer and most of my Repub neighbors are voting for Dems this year. :-)

22. Should we send him Thank You cards?
Bless him for keeping both stem cell research and the heartlessness of Republicans front and center in this crucial time before the election?

Wouldn't it be polite?

27. Karma
This man's karma....is going to be unbelievable. *shaking head*

No one says and does evil things like that without receiving in kind. If not in this life, certainly in the next.

I almost fear for him.....ALMOST.

28. You'd think after making an ass of himself the first time, he'd shut up.
There's a special place in hell for those who enjoy spreading hatred against someone afflicted with a disease.
