I can tell you I am not a big Talent fan. I contacted his office for support on dealing with a bureaucratic government agency and his staff was very unhelpful.

They said they would call back and never did on numerous occasions. I wrote to him and requested help twice and have not received any response in over 2 months. If you can't at least make an effort to help a Republican constituant during a tough election then something is wrong.

There are a lot of people here in Missouri fighting to defeat Amendment #2. An editorial in the Springfield News-Leader came out solidly against amendment #2. Of course St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Kansas City Star favor the amendment but that is to be expected from those two liberal fishwraps. Besides the Catholics the Baptists are working very hard in their churches to defeat this amendment too. So be of good cheer, it's not over until the fat lady sings.

I find your comment hard to believe. I contact Senator Talent all the time on line and with personal letters and I have always received a response.

The Fox ad was a twisted perversion of what the amendment is allllll about.

MJ Fox should be ashamed of himself. He's GOT to know adult stem cell, if it'd work which is NOT proving to be an answer for his problem, would be his ONLY chance. The other stem cells through research are causing tumors...not working at all.

Besides, if he'd stop drinking diet sodas which is most likely why he's got the disease in the first place...aspartame is the culpirt...daily he'd drink gallons of diet soda...

You know who I always thought the Republicans should get to do some adds for them- Angie Harmon. She's fantastic, beautiful, smart and a conservative.

Wooooooooo-hooooooooo!

And her husband's a football player, so he can take on the union goons!

While I understand that there is a moral objection to "embryonic" stem cell research, beyond that, what is the problem?

answer: Adult stem cell research is now permitted, even is Missouri.

Amendment 2 is reported to include legalizing CLONING and embrionic stem cell experimentation. Note Michael J. Fox's words "expanding stem cell research" I don't think he uses cloning or embrionic in the ad. Clonig is not legal now.

One for your collection...

"A small number of Parkinson's disease patients, like actor Michael J. Fox, first develop symptoms at a much younger age...It usually takes 12-14 years before a patient declines to the stage where drugs afford only limited benefit.

...Spain, where researchers working with monkeys extracted cells from a site near the carotid artery in the neck and transplanted them into the monkey's own brain, where they produced the key neuro-chemical dopamine at 35 times the rate of fetal cells. This raises the possibility of a Parkinson's patient being able to be his own donor, utilizing a group of cells with potentially far greater efficacy...

Parkinson's disease expert Dr. Mark Guttman of the University of Toronto points out that up to 3% of brain cells in a person's gray matter may actually be a form of neural-based stem cell. A pool of these cells can be extracted from brain tissue removed from humans for a variety of therapeutic reasons, then cultured, stored, and eventually encouraged to mature into dopamine-producing cells, suitable for transplant. -- "Media Sugarcoats Fetal Tissue Transplant Failure", Paul Ranalli, M.D.

It looks like Fox is purposefully misleading people, especially by not taking his medication while filming for a CAMPAIGN AD!




Wednesday, November 25, 1998

Last March Fox underwent a thalamotomy -- brain surgery aimed at managing the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Since then, the worst of his tremors have been eliminated and he takes the drug Sinemet to control the milder tremors, he said.

How is this a response to Fox? They are discussing Amendment 2. Fox was discussing Talent and Federal fetal stem cell legislation. Am I missing something?

Also for an ad with such stars it is of embarrassingly low quality, and the Cavizel aramaic opening line strikes most as weird.

Yea, what about that. If Fox's willingness to gamble on untested, unproven procedures by having experimental brain surgery paid off, then why is he out of control in McHassle's ad?

"A promising new experimental brain procedure. Known as a thalamotomy, this procedure destroys the part of the thalamus involved in movement control. In 1996, Fox underwent the operation, and it helped relieve the worst of the tremors."

Me too. That ad is TERRIFIC and should take the wind out of MJ Fox's sails. I am very sorry that he suffers from such a debilitating, incurable disease, but I agree with Rush that it is reprehensible for him to allow himself to be used in such a way by the Democrat propaganda machine.

If you're not into sports or TV, you may not recognize them. I think a lot of Missourians will though.

Well hold on there! I AM a football fan. Of FOOTBALL. Not the Starbucks Commodity of the NFL. I like watching college kids play that are having fun and still have the cartilage and skulls to survive the game, not doing it because they get millions of dollars and are pumped up on pain killers. I was a "series hugh" Cowboy fan growing up when I thought that the teams had something to do with the pride of their locale. The "Tennessee Oiler" sham, etc just made it kinda redundant and fast-food. Super-size, super-bowl, whatever. USC v. Texas in the Rosebowl last year---THAT was a football championship.

And baseball is just slightly less boring than soccer, I'm just not a fan of 9 or 15 innings and my arm is tired so someone wins! Yay!

And no, I don't love Raymond!

Anyway, I apologize for the diatribe on professional-sports and sitcoms, but to the extent that this ad is directed at people who take their political direction from QBs and sitcom actresses, maybe this is good! I wish it luck.

Just curious; How concerned was Michael J. Fox about a cure for Parkinsons before he had it? Every year I give $500 to MDA even though I bust my arse as a taxi driver... I`ve lost nobody, no family members to any nerve disease or any muscle disease yet I give $500 every year without fail (which takes me about 3 - 4 days to make)...How much did you give Mikey before you were diagnosed?

That is so true. Another good point is that if it were expected to be wildly successful (and therefore profitable), there would be more willingness on the part of private corporations to fund it.

That's cause the lib lefties have managed to convince many Reps that they HAVE feelings. Just cause they emote and use emotion like a political club, doesn't mean they have the capability to 'feel'. It's a convenient tool lefties use against non-lefties that don't know any better.

" Last March Fox underwent a thalamotomy -- brain surgery aimed at managing the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Since then, the worst of his tremors have been eliminated and he takes the drug Sinemet to control the milder tremors, he said."

Wow. Great catch. Send this to Rush.
NBC News did their expected hit piece on Rush tonight- showed video of the evil, heartless Rush demonstrating how Fox was whipsawing from side to side in the ad .
Mitchell ( of course ) never explained that Rush was contrasting Fox's wild , wild, wild whole body tremors in the ad with calm , tremor free guest appearances on Boston Legal.
Fox's admitted purposeful discontinuation of all medication prior to stem cell and Parkinson's testimony in front of Congress was also not mentioned-naturally.

Then Andrea Mitchell interviewed Fox and his tremors were under control and barely noticeable-thus making Rush's point.

If a diabetic celebrity purposefully stopped their insulin and went into diabetic coma for a Republican ad and then the family blamed Democrats for their loved one's disease- the hew and cry from the media would be immeasurable.
