Infamous Episodes in GOP History: Rush Limbaugh Mocks Michael J. Fox


The OxyMoron, Rush Limbaugh, has done a lot of despicable things in his time. But one of the most infamous occurred on Oct. 23, 2006, when Limbaugh mocked Michael J. Fox's symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Limbaugh mocked and imitated the symptoms that Fox displayed during a TV ad that supported political candidates who favor stem cell research.

"He is exaggerating the effects of the disease," the Pig-Man told his delusional listeners. "He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act....This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting."

As we all know, taking medication is something that the Pig-Man knows quite a bit about.

You know, watching Limbaugh bouncing around as he does in this video, reminds me of the "bowl full of jelly" line in the classic yuletide poem, "Twas the Night Before Christmas."

Indeed, I guess you could even think of the plump Limbaugh as a Santa Claus of sorts (that is, if your image of Santa is an obese, thrice-divorced, serial lying, cowardly chickenhawk, hillbilly heroin-guzzling, NeoNazi piece of shit).

Yes, I will admit, Rush has made some mistakes in his two-decade long career. But I don't recall Rush ever claiming that he was perfect.
To those who continue to criticize Rush, I say this:
"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

With all due respect, Nr. Miller, criticizing Limbaugh for his numerous cold-hearted, inaccurate and hyperbolic statements requires no amount of perfection on anybody's part. Limbaugh is hateful and vile and deserving of all the criticism that comes his way.

Hi Jim: as long as we're quoting Bible verses, here's my favorite: Mark 10:21:

Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.

Thanks, as always, for your insightful comment, Jack!

Jim, Jim ... Lardbaugh is an SOB who has made a fortune by casting stones for hours every day he broadcasts. And even after being exposed as a hypocrite, he's still casting them. The man lacks any of the contrition or humility that are expected of anyone who would profess Christianity, so that isn't a mask he can credibly wear.
