Limbaugh on shaky ground with Fox


Limbaugh Posted by Picasa

The Rush Limbaugh / Michael J. Fox controversy is foolish at the core.

Fox admits that he goes off his pills before testifying to Congress, so that they can better see the effects of Parkinson's disease.

As if they'd notice anything unusual in a witness who fidgets.

And Limbaugh, who should get on satellite radio with the person he most resembles, Howard Stern, offers a conditional non-apology apology to Fox for saying that Fox must either have been off his meds or acting during the campaign video.

Limbaugh knows about that. Remember when he was busted for getting painkillers illegally?

When Limbaugh goes off those pills, he becomes a real pain.

Doctors now tell us that the violent shaking seen in the Fox ad is a side effect of his medication. The medication allows him to walk and to talk coherently, with the shaking as a tradeoff.

The use of embryonic stem cells for research is presently legal, and funded in the federal, state and private arenas. Since 2001, federal funds cannot be used for new stem cell lines. In 2004, California voters approved a $3 billion bond for embryonic stem cell research. New Jersey, Massachusetts and many other states, pharmaceutical companies and foreign countries are starting vigorous programs.

If Fox doesn't like that, maybe he should move to another country. He's done that before. And he should take Rush with him!

Laurel shouldn't go anywhere without Hardy.

    Why is it that when a vile creature like Rush Limbaugh is discussed, he is lumped in with Howard Stern?
    If you listened, you would know that Howard supports Michael J. Fox and Stem cell research. In fact, Howard said that Fox saw him on the street and thanked him for his support. You show your ignorance with these flip comments on Stern. He is a very moral, thinking individual. Get a Sirius subscription and learn something.

    It is because, R.A.B., people like you don't think.

    The FCC has fined Stern $2.5 million over his career, and not for excessive morality or critical thinking skills. His shows are obscene, and his product is smut. Spanking games, lesbian love fights, you name it. He is on satellite because terrestrial networks won't have him anymore; they can't afford the fines.

    Thanks for your glib comments. By defending the likes of Stern, you help us to understand the likes of you.

    I already understand "the likes of you". You are a Conservative Christian, you watch the Meth snorting, gay bashing Ted Haggart, you listen to the Oxy gulping, Viagra chomping, Dominican "vacationing" Rush Limbaugh. You trust the FCC (government) to crush freedom of speech, but you want the government to be "hands off" your agenda. Howard Stern has goofy stuff on to make us laugh, which isn't affecting you, but I am not allowed to listen to "smut". Who gets hurt by "spanking games" etc., by the way, how do you know so much about Howard? Secret fan?
