Communist squirrels not withstanding, we here at Very Important Blog do not usually care to engage in serious political discussion, stemming from the fact that there is WAY too much of that swimming out there in Blogdom.
However...this was just TOO easy. Please read the story below (taken from the IMDb website...the ONLY place for news):
Limbaugh Blasts Parkinson's Sufferer Fox for "Acting"
Controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh has slammed actor Michael J. Fox for "acting" his way through a new campaign ad for his favorite politician. The Parkinson's Disease sufferer is seen frantically shaking as he urges voters to consider Missouri Democratic Senate candidate Claire McCaskill in the TV spot. McCaskill shares Fox's hopes for a cure for Parkinson's Disease, and is a strong advocate of embryonic stem cell research. But right-wing radio pundit Limbaugh is far from convinced the Back To The Future star was being honest in the tough-to-watch TV ad, accusing him of faking his condition. He says, "Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting... He's exaggerating the effects of the disease. This is the only time I have ever seen Michael J. Fox portray any of the symptoms of the disease he has. This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox." In his radio rant, which aired on Monday, Limbaugh continued "I will bigly (sic), 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, especially since people are telling me they have seen him this way on other interviews and in other television appearances. Michael J. Fox is using his illness as a way to mislead voters into thinking that their vote for a single United States senator has a direct impact on stem cell research in Missouri. It doesn't, and it won't."
As someone who's adopted grandmother has Parkinson's...I can firmly say:
What a dickhead.
It boggles the mind how someone could make a such a STUPID public statement. Especially coming from someone who...uh...USES ILLEGALLY OBTAINED PAINKILLERS! (....And uses the word "bigly". In what language may I ask is that a word Mr. Radio Talkshow Host?...)
That's an awfully high horse you continuously ride Mr. Limbaugh...
What an idiot.
