Actually, this ad is against a proposed amendment to the state Constitution, not against McCaskill.

I am hoping that the Fox ad backfires, and it could. It's so personal, such a public airing of something private, it has to make some people uncomfortable.

If I were a campaign consultant, I would not reccomend this ad to my client.

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...

If diet soda CAUSED Parkinson's disease, we'd be seeing people with it all over the streets.

Including in Maryland for Cardin who voted against the Embryonic Stem Cell research bill. This proves Fox is just using this as an excuse to help Democrats in contested races.

This afternoon, Michael J Fox was stumping for Tammy Duckworth, sprouting the same garbage. Fox is becoming a trophy case for the Left.

What do you have in this amendment passing?

My mother died three years ago from Parkinson's. She was worth thousands of zygotes or whatever you want to call them. Beyond that medical science shouldnt be inhibited because a minority believe that doing anythign with an embryonic stem cell other than adopting it is murder. They are going to be dumped in the trash anyway. Isnt it better than they have an opportunity to save life rather than just having a legacy of being garbage?

I've never watched Raymond either....lol

As for celebrities making political ads - I really don't mind if they would keep it civil. The problem is, civility is a foreign word to Babs, Springsteen, Dixie Chicks, Affleck, and so on. Several democrat celebrities don't shove it in your face and insult folks.

But I don't let it influence me, either. That's what FR is for. Haha.

My father died in 1999, so I know about a loss. This amendment does NOTHING that is not already being allowed to do. What it establishes is a constitutional avenue for tax dollars to be diverted without legislation.

I find it immoral to LIE about and con the voters of this state using horrible physical ailments as means and methods to gain the reach into voters pockets.

Hmm...whom has more importance to Missouri voters?

A Canadian born liberal only recently become a U.S. Citizen that supported John Kerry in 2004, lied about Talent and is supporting a candidate against what he says he stands for (Cardin), or their pitcher in the world series and the man who portrayed Christ humbly in TPOTC speaking the truth?

You want to play dirty and try to ruin a Senator with lies and promote modern day snake salemen that take advantage of people that are ill and desperate for a cure? Fine. Enjoy your just desserts Dems.

Lots of people keep saying Michael J. Fox is Canadian, which is where I believe he came from, but in the commercials I've seen during this campaign, he *says* "I'm an American."

Some of the reading I did about this said that the medication itself, if it's l-dopa or a form of it that he is taking, can cause the same symptoms after a great length of time on it.

Don't know if that's what he's on, but it is what my grandmother took for her Parkinson's, 15+ years ago.

So be of good cheer, it's not over until the fat lady sings.

Yes, I know that's the real approach.
I guess I just got a bit down after watching the EWTN discussion on the
future vote last Friday night.
But, "you can not win, if you do not play", so we have to buck up
the spirits and continue onward.

Wonder how Mike Fox would feel if it was discovered that by sucking out the brains of MS victims and extracting their DNA you could cure cancer?

The frustrating part is that Talent has yet to even make some type of comment. The Michael J Fox ad is not even mentioned in Talent's campaign site.

I've noticed that as well... very disappointing.

I heard on Rush's show today that Michael Steele immediately issued a statement defending himself and his record, regarding a similar Michael J. Fox ad in Maryland. Where the heck is Jim Talent?

Michael J Fox swung by in the Congressional District next to mine today to stump for the RAT candidate. Fox blasted Rush.

The GOP candidate had a sick person with him who is being healed by adult stem cells. The GOP candidate managed to distinguish between embryonic and adult stem cells. Other Republicans are catching on.

In the first 2 seconds of the ad Jim Caviezel says what sounds like "La bora nash bin a shak." I assume that's Aramaic for something??

Someone on You Tube said something funny, that is was Aramaic for, "I am Jesus, and I approved this message."

I agree the ad is awesome. But, unlike the MJF ad, which was a campaign ad for McCaskill, it did not ask for votes for Talent.

Here's the response to the Michael J. Fox ad. This ad stars "Passion of the Christ" actor Jim Caviezel, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jeff Suppan, Kurt Warner, QB of the Arizona Cardinals, actress Patricia Heaton and Mike Sweeney of the Kansas City Royals.

Jeff Suppan will be pitching tomorrow night in Game 4 of the World Series. This ad will be apparently be running in Missouri tomorrow night, although I don't know if it will be run during the World Series...

Thanks for posting that text. And kudos to Jim Caviezel for putting his faith out there for all to see. It's probably hurting him in liberal Hollywood, which makes me respect Jim for his bravery and willingness to take financial hits for his beliefs.

Check this out!

Interesting excerpt from this article:

Fox addressed the controversy on Tuesday.

"I'm kind of lucky right now. It's ironic, given some of the things that have been said in the last couple of days, that my pills are working really well right now," he said.

Duckworth called Limbaugh's opinion ridiculous.

"That comment is trying to take attention away from the real issue at hand, which is we need embryonic stem cell research," she said.

Duckworth's congressional opponent says that's not true. He was joined by a cancer survivor from Wheaton, who was treated using adult stem cells.

"His life has been transformed," Peter Roskam said.
