Fox rips Limbaugh at Milwaukee rally
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES ^ | November 7, 2006 | AP

Posted on 11/07/2006 10:54:37 AM PST by bulldozer

MADISON, Wis. -- One last celebrity plug, several pep rallies, and even more meet-and-greets marked the final day of Wisconsin campaigning Monday.

Gov. Jim Doyle, who is seeking to become the first Democrat re-elected governor in 32 years, welcomed actor Michael J. Fox to a rally in Milwaukee.

Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, spoke about the governor's support for embryonic stem cell research. Fox, who had to occasionally brace himself as he twitched, referenced remarks conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh made two weeks ago accusing Fox of not taking his medication before cutting ads for Doyle.

''I recently had a run-in with a not-so-compassionate conservative,'' Fox said. ''He thinks I should wait until my symptoms go away before talking to you.''

Every time Fox opens his mouth these days, he loses about an inch in height. I figure by the end of the year he won't have to worry about the Parkinsons because he'll have shrunk down to nothing.

I've lost any respect I ever had for that twerp.

A 'brilliant' idea!

But that would require the Hollyweird types to put their money where their stem cells (and their mouths) are.

Much easier and economical to stick it to the public.

You got it, AG! Mr. Fox told a lie about the promise of embryonic stem cells. Rush said it was "cruel" to give sick people false hope. But the press reports otherwise to make old Rush-Bo look like a creep.

They should be ashamed. But they ain't.

If they actually believed that this research was perfectly moral, wouldn't they be creating their own embryos to donate?

You want to end it? Get Congress to pass legislation stating that nothing funded in full or in part by federal, state or local funds can be covered by a patient, a registration or a copyright and that all development, from creative works to scientific discoveries shall belong to the people who paid for it. Nationwide, we'd save tens of billions.

Because it is a wedge issue. It is being shamelessly exploited by the Democrats, who promise Pie-In-The-Sky cures in exchange for votes.

I do not understand why the Republicans don't take this issue to the Democrats, and hard. They have behaved disgracefully.

If they want to discuss Abortion, we can do that all day long. But instead, they run their stealth campaigns and hide behind children and cripples. They build up hope in the most vulnerable members of our society, and don't give a damn whether or not that hope is ever fulfilled. They are beneath contempt.

Typical Hollywood Jackazz. If you admit messing with your meds to exaggerate the effects of your illness, don't get offended when someone suggests you might have done it again.

I am overdone on Fox's self-pity.

He could have waited to film that TV commercial till his symptoms subsided, even assuming he didn't manipulate his meds to make his symptoms worse than they are in everyday life when he filmed it.

What gagged me was that final sentence about "people like me" when he looked straight into the camera (remember, this man is an accomplished actor) and fixed his mouth with a pathetic grimace, like he was about to cry.

Oh puleeze! How many other people in the spotlight, actors or not, have had devastating diseases, debilitating illnesses, and haven't milked them for political purposes?

One thing we all have in common is that we were all once embryos. I'm glad no one sacrificed me for my stem cells and I don't believe we should sacrifice other potential humans for theirs. As noble as finding a cure for diseases such as Parkinson's may be, killing embryos is not the way. Some, like Fox, believe that we should prey upon the most innocent and defenseless for our own benefit. Yet one of the strongest measures of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable and defenseless. I would think even a demonrat would understand that. How ironic they think Republicans are heartless and cruel.

I voted to dump Doyle at 7:01 AM and was number 14 in line.
It took 5 seconds to vote straight R.
When I exited there must have been 100 people in line (mostly conservatives because they were all well dressed and on their way to work just like me lol).

That constitutes a "ripping", now? Since when have conservatives gotten as mushy and weak-kneed as that?

No, he thinks that you should read the legislation you support, and not get involved in political campaigns and slander an opponent.

I have a thankfully mild, yet still irreversable medical condition myself.

So I can't say here what it is that I really think of Fox's whoring his disease to get a political candidate (ANY political candidate!) elected to office, without my getting banned.

Therefore, calling him a ....in' scumbag!, will just have to suffice.
