Limbaugh says Michael J. Fox ad is worse than Spencer calling Hillary ugly.
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 02:51 PM by 11 Bravo
He also went on to say that Fox was faking it when he trembled and twitched during his campaign ad for Claire McCaskill. My God, that fat bastard re-defines "contemptible" every time he opens his mouth!

That's pathetic.

105. wasn't he on vacation with a bunch of guys in the Dominican Republic
when he got caught with all that viagra?

It wouldn't occur to me to take that for a night out with the boys unless there was going to be baby oil and wrestling involved.

Or did you have Bill Frist make another "video diagnosis"? His last one wasn't very good, as I recall. You might not want to depend on Dr. Frist for a diagnosis if all he has to review is a piece of videotape.

9. Fox doesn't have to send a maid to a gas station to get his medicine
The same bastard who made fun of Janet Reno for shaking; she has Parkinson's as well. The same bastard who vacations in a country which has a booming child sex trade industry. The same badass motherfucker who is oh so brave behind the microphone but allowed a pimple on his fat ass to keep him from serving his country. All Fox wants to do is allow for advancements in medical research. What kind of monster can that Michael J. Fox be?

10. Limbaugh's restaurant has a limited menu. They serve
only their Swiftboat Plate, which comes with cynicism, falsehood, deceit, misrepresentation, and daily lies.

But be sure to save room for their lone dessert: the Character Assasination Sundae.

Go, Claire. Whomp that damn Jim Talent.

13. My God, what an evil thing to say
I would not wish long-term serious illness on anyone. But I do hope that all people who sneer in this way should spend about 2 weeks experiencing frightening and painful symptoms, with scary tests and the real possibility that it could be something very serious - and then recover, but hopefully with a bit more empathy for others.

What is really scary is that people actually LISTEN to someone as nasty and idiotic as this.

19. Why do people insist on sullying these pages with that name? We
know that he is going to spout reactionary RW talking points faxed right from Tony Snowjob and KKKarl R's office. We know he drinks concentrated freep-juice. We know he is a moran.

It is bad enough knowing that he is "out there" - but at least I can avoid him. When I come here for some R & R and see his name (among others) it reminds me again that there is no place on earth that I can hide from his atrocity.

Sorry - had to rant.

We all know Limbaugh is a big fat idiot, and we know everything he says is contemptable.

But it's an occasion when he stoops so very, very low that even we are surprised.

It just makes me angry that to see their disgusting hate filled rhetoric spread onto DU. Not that I actually read it mind you - but just knowing that it is here feels like an intrusion and an invasion into one of my favorite places of refuge. Its like someone forgot to take out the trash last week and it really smells.

Burning in Hell for his hand-maimed host.

Cutting his hands off, down in Hell.

37. Well you would, wouldn't you
Are you this Ellis Wyatt?

"Ellis Wyatt is not my real name, but I do live in Rockford, Illinois. I'm a father, a husband and a lawyer, in that order. I consider myself to be a libertarian conservative or, perhaps more accurately, a "South Park Republican." I dislike Dick Durbin with a passion and I think he is one of the worst Senators currently serving. I distrust the Mainstream Media and believe that blogs are the "wave of the future" with respect to staying informed. I hope to contribute in some small way to the blogging revolution."

Do you really hate Dick Durbin? At DU he's quite a popular fellow. Try Freerepublic.com to give Rush the benefit of the doubt.

66. I just googled the name. There was an oil tycoon with
that name and the thing I posted above.

Didn't you find it odd that in THIS day and age, after YEARS of LIES out of that fat bastard's mouth, we were urged caution by an Ellis Wyatt? Call me suspicious, but I'll fling shit at anyone urging restraint against Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, etc. Do I think they should be hunted and killed? No.

But come on...

Sherrod Brown is a black guy.
Fox fakes Parkinsons.
History happens. The event occurs and you write it down, there is nothing to interpret.
the liberal media...(x 1,000,000).

We could go on and on. No transcript of his show is needed to demonstrate the depths of his depravity.

Let the man tell us why I'm wrong about Rush Limbaugh. Let him show how the left has misquoted rush Limbaugh for so many years when the poor man never said such horrible things.

All I said is that I would be interested in an actual quote, as did another poster later in the thread, who wasn't hung up on a cross after asking for it.

Not one single complementary word about Limbaugh was written or implied by me. I asked for (heaven forbid) facts supporting the posters claim that Limbaugh said what he said.

If you are one, who takes heresay as fact just because you happen to dislike the object, then too bad for you. I'm not the one who should be apologizing.

I never said he was a good guy and didn't say horribly stupid heartless things. Thogh I really wouldn't know, because I haven't looked at a word he's written or heard a word he's said in about a decade.

Forgive me for not taking someone's word on a messageboard. I'm not saying anyone's lying, I'm just saying that I would like to see a transcript of someone's horrible statements rather than a summary.

48. Bullshit. Complete fucking bullshit.
Limbaugh says shit like this all the time, and I have NO reason to doubt the OP. YOU find me a transcript and come back here and show us he didn't say that. Sorry, but Limbaugh's track record vetoes any benefit of the doubt.

The OP isn't making "horrible statements." This is typical Limbaugh. I find it most curious that you defend him, though. Most curious.

You have got to be kidding me! Someone else in this thread also asked for a transcript. I am in no way shape or form defending him. Be rational.

I don't care whether it's Rush or Mel Gibson or Putin or Adolf Hitler. I don't lend credence to anyone saying "hey, this guy said this". Show me a link or at least a quote.

It's just common sense. People get burned too much by relying on heresay online. It's got absolutely nothing to do with the original poster or Rush Limbaugh. I just want to see an actual quote before I comdemn him FOR THIS.

Which is such an incredibly not-of-this-reality position, I hardly know where to begin. Common sense is understanding that this is typical Limbaugh.

I'll be back with the transcript, when one's posted. I don't expect you to admit you were wrong, but I'll HAPPILY post it.

If you can find one, I'd be interested to see it. I'm interested to see any transcripts of any other simiarly idiotic statements you can find by people who are basically accusing Fox of being a faker.

71. Let's nip this in the bud.... Here's a link to Limbaugh's latest
attrocity, thanks to Crooks & Liars.com:
Rush Limbaugh will say anything to attack anyone who challenges George Bush and his policies. This time, his target is Michael J. Fox. Meds are something Rush does have a little experience with.

Emailer Doug: Rush Limbaugh today accused Michael J. Fox, actor and Parkinson's Disease victim, of deliberately going off of his meds to appear on camera with exaggerated symptoms of his disease for dramatic effect. Fox appeared in a recent Clair McHaskill (D-MO) Senate campaign ad, touting the need for stem cell research. Limbaugh even goes so far as to accuse Fox of faking his symptoms all together.

www.crooksandliars.com/2006/10/23/rush-limbaugh-attacks...

"I stated when I saw the ad, I was commenting to you about it, that he was either off the medication or he was acting. He is an actor, after all." (Emphasis mine)

(Why people ever give that maggot the benefit of the doubt anymore is beyond me.)

I heard him with my own ears, so I didn't feel any need to defend my post. As for a transcript, I have no freaking idea how to obtain a Limbaugh transcript, nor do I have any desire to do so. I knew fellow Duers with more time and computer savvy than I possess would have my back. (Thanks, helthe2b and Hong Kong Cavalier)

88. You're welcome. I figured that C&L or Media Matters would have it soon.
Limbaugh intentionally does not post transcripts of his show exactly because of this reason.
That might have changed some time recently, but I believe the Excrement in Broadcasting netowrk doesn't post
transcripts because it would be fairly easy for someone to come back and rake him over the coals with something he's said.

Of course, that's why his show is probably the most-screened radio talk show with a long broadcast delay time. So he can always control the message.

89. Oh please, I heard it too. Along with other steaming turds of "news."
I stayed on the station for about 40 minutes today and heard not only that Michael J. Fox was deliberately not taking his medicine and ACTING in order to gain sympathy for Parkinson's patients....

I also heard all the "evidence" that Al Qaeda is actively rooting for Democrats in November, because they know Dems are on their side.

He also cited a SanFran Chronicle article on sex trafficking and announced to the world that sex slavery is alive and well in Nancy Pelosi's district.

You really need to hear what he said in context, to believe it?

76. From telling idiots their opinions yes, he does
However, just sayin' that the medical system in Canada allows for medications de be purchased by all citizens and not just those who are rich like Rush's Canadian counterpart (I'm sure there is one.)

Fox has that luxury...and I wish we did too.

29. They've nothing left.
The Repukes have nothing left. They've painted themselves into a corner with no mode of egress. The Democrats own all the issues, now including national security. All they have is personal attacks which is going to play directly into the Democrat's hand. First, Hillary is ugly and now Michael J. Fox is faking his Parkinson's disease. At long last, have they no decency? We all know the answer to that question.

Rush Limbaugh deserves today's "Worst Person of the World".

49. Even if true
So what? So what if he is off medication? So what if he's even completely faking his tremors. Does it change the fact that he's got this disabilitating disease that is going to kill him slowly and painfully in front of wife and children?

Does any of that change the fact that using ALREADY DISCARDED fetuses could potentially cure this disease?

God, how I hate how religious zealotry has become interwoven with secular laws.

36. Coming from a fat, anal-retentive junkie who's been masquerading as a
member of the human race, he's not in a position to talk about anybody "faking it".

You're not getting any younger, Limbaugh. Remember that when a debilitating disease affects you.

Wife beater: "Oh, honey, I'm so sorry I hit you." Yeah, makes it all better. He's not stupid, and he knows exactly what he's doing. "Apologizing" for it later makes no difference whatsoever.

Rush Limbaugh would say something that mean and cruel.

It's time for him to leave the airwaves. That was unforgivable.

107. Limp-ass should try saying that to Michael J. Fox's face
instead of from the comfort of a studio, where the person in question cannot respond. It must take a pretty conceited man to sit in a studio and lob out wild accusations at a person suffering a terminal illness.

He owes everyone who suffers from Parkinsons an apology.
