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.''

"...not-so-compassionate conservative . . . [who] thinks I should wait until my symptoms go away before talking to you."

Wow, a lying pro-abortion leftist. That's . . . so . . . surprising.





Actually, it's so redundant. Twice over.

Michael, to be honest, the Dems have more than enough twitching, spastic freaks already without having to exploit you.

"Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease...

Yeah, AP, I KNOW he friggin suffers from Parkinsons. I'm just going to call MJF "Mr. Disease" from now on since that seems to be his new last name.

Or perhaps, AP, you could try a new line. How about, "Fox, our current posterboy for perpetual victimhood..." And while you're at it, how about getting new lines for, Cindy "whose son died in Iraq" Sheehan and John "who was in Vietnam" Kerry. Or is that asking for too much?

Since Rush just mentioned this, will post a reference to the rich couple I wrote about earlier in this thread:

From: http://blog.bioethics.net/2006/10/wall-to-wall-cash-in-missourithe-next.html

"What’s particularly interesting is that almost all the spending in support of the amendment has come from one couple---Jim and Virginia Stowers, the founders of the American Century family of mutual funds. The Stowers have also donated over $1.5 billion to found and support the Stowers Institute, a first class medical research center In Kansas City that is heavily involved in stem cell research. In addition to supporting the amendment, the Stowers have also put a major planned expansion of the Institute on hold pending the outcome of the amendment vote."

So if Duckworth, Cardin and McCaskill lose I think we can officially say he's useless as an activist. His former candidate, has already lost twice. 2004 and now a week ago.

Campaigning for an incumbent Dem Governor in a purple state isn't impressive and can't be attributed to him.

Oh, and BTW, MJ has been such a valuable asset the cloning/embryonic amendment is below 50% and tied.

MJ may be beloved as an actor because he played a Republican on TV and had a successful trilogy of Back to the Future movies, but when it comes to issues that transcend the screen he's proving to have little traction.

I have 2 sisters who have always voted Democrat, Both of them said the "Fake" Fox add (meaning he obviously wanted to appear pathetic & the Kerry insult, made them decide to vote Straight Ticket GOP) I nearly fell out! I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it astounded me.
Pray for America & Pray for a GOP win. We're doomed if Dems take power. IMHO.

I could have been in that line with you. I was #36 to vote and went straight Rupublican as well. RealClear Politics has stated this race is 6 points to Doyle, but I don't buy it. Doyle's history of corruption is well documented and Green has put a lot of cash into pointing that out. To those of you outside Wisconsin, Madison may be the San Francisco of the Midwest, but the rest of the state, including Milwaukee, is pretty balanced or leaning Republican. Green is scaring the crap out of Doyle, and that's great news!

Hasn't Fox gotten enough mileage out of his OFF-Meds performance? Is attempting to diss Rush 'after the fact' ALL this pathetic creature has left?

If the Dems and their stooges can't handle criticism then maybe the Dems should stop trotting out these undeducated neanderthals.

No Mike, he thinks you shouldn't EXAGERATE your condition in the course of misrepresenting the potential for ESC research, in the course of misrepresenting the law to constitutionalize embryonic cloning.

(If I weren't compassionate, I'd have used terms like "faking" and "lying".)

Once again, Ann Coulter was absolutely right. The Left makes it their mission to find and exploit those who are "morally untouchable" to send their messages. Any who dare to disagree with and/or criticize these "untouchables" will be fiercely roasted alive.

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

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!

Not only that, but the Dem modus operandi is to find and exploit issues that appeal to bleeding-heart liberals. Forget whether or not it's viable, just trot it out and dare anyone to ridicule or criticize.

What is really sad is MJF has been used as a "human shield", and he doesn't realize it.

Same here, now if we could just get the dead in Milwaukee and the Brain-dead in Madison not to vote, we might have an honest election in Wisconsin.

They use a victim for every argument so they can't be attacked.

Fox is playing his Parkinson's to the hilt. I was watching him on one of the alphabet channels and he was doing a poor Don Knott's imitation. I wonder what Fox would look like if he were to use a phone booth? He'd probably knock out the glass on both sides.

Someone should point out there was just as good a chance that the cure for Parkinson's would come from not aborting the future scientist as it would playing with embyros.

It would seem that Mr. Fox is Canadian. He may hold US citizenship; he remains, however, a foreigner.

Msg to MJF: Compassionate Conservatives tell the truth even if it hurts.

Stick to making movies and television shows, which you are excellent at, and leave politics to people who can handle the critics. When you enter the political arena, you are fair game regardless of whether people agree with you. If you are going to come out against something, then you've got to know what you are talking about. That's what "gotcha" politics is all about. This isn't Canada.

FOX is sicker than he looks. For instance he wants to inject embryonic stem cells into the brains of the handicapped and give them cancer.

Not sure you can get sicker than that unless you're ripping open a baby's skull with scissors.

You have to be one sick puppy to endorse embryonic stem cell research. What next? Abortion farms with bounties for high-quality embryonic stem cells? May God have mercy on these misguided souls.
