TRANSCRIPT:

SHATNER: Here's my premise and you agree with it or not. If you have money, you are going to get health care. If you don't have money, it's more difficult.

LIMBAUGH: If you have money you're gonna get a house on the beach. If you don't have money you're gonna live in a bungalow somewhere. That's, that's...

SHATNER: Right, but we're talking about health care.

LIMBAUGH: What's the difference?

SHATNER: The difference is we're talking about health care, not a house or a bungalow.

LIMBAUGH: No! no! You're assuming there's some morally superior aspect to health care than there is for a house

SHATNER: No, I want to keep the subject, for the moment, on the health care debate

LIMBAUGH: Alright

SHATNER: Alright. Let's talk about health care...

LIMBAUGH: I am talking about health care.

SHATNER: Isn't the premise, isn't this valid -- that the health care system today is breaking the country?

LIMBAUGH: No, it's not.

SHATNER: It's not?

LIMBAUGH: I don't believe it is.

SHATNER: But we're told that it is

LIMBAUGH: Of course we're told that, because that's how they get us to act like sheep and get us to go along with...

SHATNER: but how do you KNOW that? That's... the sum total of what i want to ask you, politically, is HOW DO YOU KNOW?

LIMBAUGH: It's my job. It's my life. It's my career. It's my passion. I study this stuff. I want the best country we can have and we're going backwards!

1. Why is Shatner even talking to that pile of dung?
Edited on Fri Dec-04-09 02:53 PM by TheCowsCameHome
What was the point?

Actually like the idea of Limbaugh being grilled,......




....around 375 degrees on a barbeque spit.

19. Love Chair from the Addams Family
My guess is Shatner likes the camera angles as they semi-face each other.

4. Shouldn't it be if you have money you live at the beach and if you don't
you live under a bridge. Isn't the question about people not having health care, not weather their health care is better than the next person? Is he that stupid?

8. C'mon Capt Kirk! You can do better than that!
Shatner should have looked at Limbaugh like the insane, ranting drug addict he is forcefully told him that the difference between being able to afford healthcare or beach home is that in one case you are disappointed and in the other you die!

13. "I want the best country we can have and we're going backwards!"
Going backwards? Isn't that what the right wants to do? Founding fathers blah blah blah... When will people realize that this guy is nothing more than an entertainer who is playing his game to ring in the cash?

16. Limbaugh has no mirror neurons in his brain. He cannot feel human compassion
Its either that or warped frontal lobes....

18. He's a Canadian.
He knows healthcare as a RIGHT for ALL citizens.

Pop quiz: name the only industrialized nation on the planet that allows tens of millions of its own citizens to go without healthcare.

20. Damn good question, "HOW DO YOU KNOW?"
Limbaugh is a multi-millionaire, doesn't have kids, only occasionally has a wife.

He has as much experience making ends meet with rising health costs, insurance company screws, and bankrupting bills as he does with actual debate: theoretical, on his terms, from a very safe distance.

24. Limbaugh is a disturbed angry man; who should be talking to a shrink...
...instead of Shatner.

And who wants to live in world of sick fellow humans instead of healthy ones..
