They say that when you can see a politician’s lips moving, he must be lying. The conservative talk radio corollary is, “If you see Rush Limbaugh’s lips moving, he must be saying something stupid.”
Rush’s latest bloviation is a dig at Parkinson’s sufferer Michael J. Fox. When a visibly shaking Fox cut a campaign commercial in support of stem cell research, Rush took to his EIB (Excellence in Bacon) Network to accuse Fox of chicanery.
“He is exaggerating the effects of the disease,” the drug-addled Doughboy solemnly intoned. “He’s moving all around and shaking and it’s purely an act. This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn’t take his medication or he’s acting.”
Rush even professed inside information about his allegations. The Corpulent Carbuncle said he knew they were true because Fox claimed in an E! True Hollywood Story segment that he’d not taken them before his recent testimony before Congress on Parkinson’s and stem cell research.
E! True Hollywood Story? Rush, have you been hittin’ the OxyC again?
Drawing on his voluminous knowledge of the legal principle that you are innocent until proven guilty, Dillhole Dan ranted on, “Now people are telling me they have seen Michael J. Fox in interviews and he does appear the same way in the interviews as he does in this commercial. All right then, I stand corrected. So I will bigly, hugely admit that I was wrong, and I will apologize to Michael J. Fox, if I am wrong in characterizing his behavior on this commercial as an act.”
Several sources, including doctors familiar with Parkinson’s and the medications effects on victims, have said publicly that Fox was exaggerating nothing. In fact, some pointed out that the meds can actually increase tremors.
Is that the sound of crickets I hear over at The Rush Limbaugh Pain Clinic and Erectile Dysfunction Lab?
Here’s the point you’re missing you sanctimonious, drug-abusing prig. It doesn’t matter if he did stop his meds to appear sympathetic. Even without the tremors, he has a deadly disease that might be cured through stem cell research. Even you, in your overbearing ignorance admit that. He is also a United States citizen who is free to exercise his rights to campaign for his candidate of choice. And, he is willing to conduct that campaign with considerably more grace and class than that crazed cabal you run with.
It takes a mighty cynical, disingenuous, and hypocritical asshat to accuse Fox of, “allowing his illness to be exploited and in the process…shilling for a Democratic politician.”
Rush, get real.
You have never met a crackpot politician, raving lunatic fundamentalist, or Constitution-abusing President you didn’t pander to like a man with a foot fetish in a shoe store.
So Rush, step right this way. I think I have a nice little pair of open-toed pumps in size unbelievably huge you’ll just adore.
