Can you believe this? Rush Limbaugh is an a**hole and you all know how much I hate to use bad words. Mocking Michael J. Fox is just wrong in so many ways. I don't care if he has since apologized, the painkilling pill popper should think before he speaks. We know the ad that MJ did is sad to watch but Rush should not have opened his mouth up like he did. Michael J Fox was the original poster boy for my generation. Secret of my Success is still one of my favorite movies of all time. Why would anyone bash someone suffering from such a serious disease as Parkinson's. Here's more:
Michael J. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, appears in a TV ad for a Senate candidate who supports stem-cell research, and the severe shaking and stiffness associated with the disease are evident in his movements. But conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has accused the actor of exaggerating his symptoms for the camera.
Commenting on Fox's commercial for Missouri Senate challenger Claire McCaskill, Limbaugh said on his syndicated radio program Tuesday, "He is moving around and shaking, and it is purely an act."
Limbaugh later said on the show, "If this was not an act, then I apologize." He also went on to say, however, that Fox is allowing his illness to be exploited.
Fox's rep, John Rogers, called Limbaugh's remarks "shameful," USA Today reports. "It's an appalling, sad statement. Anybody who understands Parkinson's disease knows it's because of the medicine that one experiences" involuntary movements like those Fox shows in the commercial.
