    Carry on; once again you add nothing to the thread topic or debate.
    Uh...what did I post that was intended to provoke and bait?

    You were claiming that Liberals were emotional, yet you're the only one in this thread throwing little tantrums.

    Are you now claiming Liberals are not emotional? How so and when did they become un-emotional? This should be a fascinating lecture from the forums baiting troll expert.

    Really? And so you project your little tantrum onto me in order to prove what? That you have a profound expertise at avoiding substance and are a professional DP baiter and troller?

    I assure you, nothing contained my above arguments can be construed as throwing a tantrum unless of course you are a troll attempting to bait. Got substance?

    Carry on; I look forward to more of your expert attempts to bait the thread with your troll like posts.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Are we an arrogant country?Alright. While the next person that does a one line post that has no point other than to attack the other person and not their actual argument (and calling their points "trolling" is NOT attacking their argument) is getting a thread ban.

    Now get back onto topic or some kind of debate. Whether someone is Truth Detectors clone, whether YOU feel someone is trolling or baiting or not (you feel that way? report it), or other such things are NOT the topic.

    He mentioned me in the post and I thought that's what you were referring to. I was mistaken obviously.

    Re: Are we an arrogant country?

    Let me preface this by pointing out I'm hardly a big TD fan in regards to many of the ways he presents his stances, that said.

    How is mimicing something mocking it? The video is even there because Limbaugh provides a webcam feed for subscribers to his site to be able to see his broadcast. If he said someone was waving as they left on a boat, and he mimiced waving, would he be "mocking" them? Because your original argument was that he was mocking Fox.

    As far as the video you posted, I'm at work so can't view it. However I'd be interested to know if it was the one that was spread around on the broadcast networks that was purposefully sped up to increase the speed and then looped to make it appear to go on longer then it did.

    Which is absurd, but that also doesn't begin to address the fact that he mimicked Michael J. Fox's shaking.
    Which again, mimicking does not equal mocking.

    Now, I don't agree TD with you trying to play on emotional hysterics. HOWEVER, I actaully DO agree with Rush. I've watched Fox on Boston Legal numerous times and on the previews for Rescue Me. He is no where NEAR as fidgety and shaky as he was in the video.

    So my question to you, would be WHY would he purposefully take lengths not to be that way when on television shows, but was doing it while in his commercial? Its obvious that he COULD'VE been FAR more composed in his commercial than he was, but he wasn't. Why was that?

    My guess would be, trying to view it from his side, he wanted to the most raw look into parkinsons that he could provide in the commercial, and thus didn't want to take steps to make himself seem "better" than he really was. And you know what, I don't blame him for that. But to say that the reason you'd want to do that is for any reason OTHER than to hope that it still strike an emotional cord with people is simply dishonest in my opinion. The REASON you'd want to show it at its worst for him is specifically so people feel more emotionally disgusted at not helping such a horrible illness than if he just seemed like a perfectly fine person up there talking on the screen.

    Which is exactly the point Rush was trying to make; albiet in his normal verbose, over the top, rather idiotic way.

    Obviously; because when it comes to substance, you have him easily beat. At least you are trying to make a point, he doesn't even exert that much effort, and one could never confuse you two other than you both like to thank each other a lot.

    It is one and the same; the video posted was from Youtube.
