    No, I honestly thought that maybe you guys got the same talking points by mistake.

    What were the terrible things Rush said? Was it the part where he suggested that in order for Michael to make a bigger emotional appeal he was perhaps not on his drugs during the commercial in order to have a greater impact?

    Honestly? You think you are being honest about your trolling and baiting? I don't think you would know "honest" if it whacked you on your thick skull.

    Perhaps you need find a hobby?

    Yeah, you're right. It's perfectly okay to mock a guy with Parkinson's just because you don't agree with his political message. And it has already been proven that the medication is what makes him do that, not a lack of medication.

    Sure, why not, when that guy is telling the world that if only we killed more babies he might get cured of his twitchiness.

    If he's willing to prostitute himself for his cause, why shouldn't we make fun of him?

    Because there's a little thing called being an adult and attacking his message if you don't agree with it rather than him and his illness.

    How was he being mocked? Did Rush say; "look at that retard, he's faking it?"

    No, he merely suggested that in order to have a greater effect, he allowed himself to be recorded with his "tic" in order to appeal to emotions rather than the facts of the cause he supported.

    He also suggested that he had done plenty of other appearances completely normal and without evidence of having the "tic." How is this mocking him?

    I am always amused at the emotional hysterics of Liberals who when called on their tactics become hurt and insulted.

    The debate about embryonic cell research was based on a lie: That President Bush was denying funding for it, and that it was somehow this miraculous cure for conditions that Michael suffered from.

    The truth was that Bush merely refused Federal Tax Payer funding for the research on moral grounds which, if it was such a miracle cure, can easily find PRIVATE funding. The other TRUTH is that to date, there has been ZERO evidence that embryonic stem cells are any better at cures than adult stem cells.

    So aside from all the emotional hyperbole you bring, how was this in the least way mocking Michael?
