    What does this have to do with anything contained in this thread?

    As for Rush's addiction; do you think he is the first person to ever become addicted to a prescribed drug OxyContin?

    Your desperate desire to avoid honest debate is noted however. Here are some facts about it, read and become informed:

    But Rush never attacked him and his illness; once more what we are talking about here is highly emotional hysterics and nothing related to the facts or the truth.

    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?

    Um...are you serious?
    Did you not see the video where he mimicked Michael J. Fox shaking?

    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.
    Which is absurd, but that also doesn't begin to address the fact that he mimicked Michael J. Fox's shaking.

    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?
    That isn't mocking him. That is making ignorant judgments based on knowing very little about Parkinson's Disease.

    I am always amused at the emotional hysterics of Liberals who when called on their tactics become hurt and insulted.
    Emotional hysterics? I merely said that he does what he does for ratings. To get upset over his antics would be like getting upset over a professional wrestler. It's entertainment pure and simple and he does it quite well.

    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.
    I could care less about that. Nowhere in my post did I indicate my feelings on embryonic cell research.

    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.
    See above.

    So aside from all the emotional hyperbole you bring, how was this in the least way mocking Michael?
    I know it's hard for you to do this, but just try this for me: Take a calming breath or two and read back to what I actually posted before you start foaming at the mouth and continue with your business as usual tactics. I know it's hard for you to be civil to someone who disagrees with your points but just try it this once.

    You seem to be doing more baiting and trolling; fascinating that you never seem to tire of such childish games.

    You have no problems with Fox deliberately twitching to garner pity to support his cause, though? It's just plain rude of Limbaugh to point it out for what it is, right?

    That's not making fun of his disease?

    If he was deliberately doing so but Rush Limbaugh nor you have any proof that he was. The twitching is a result of the medication.

    How ironic; the only one who appears to be foaming at the mouth about this issue is you. Civility is something that is apparently foreign to Liberals when they get called on their emotional hysterics.

    I am sorry, but I didn't know Rush was a TV show, I only listen to him. Perhaps you can supply the video showing Rush "mocking" Michaels affliction; if that is the case, then I would be in agreement that he indeed "mocked" Michael.
