    Rush wouldn't know what it's like not to take your pills.

    It's funny, because when I heard this last night on CNN, I was like "WTF, like this ******* doesn't take enough medication for the both of them!"

    What a total ass. I mean, it's literally mocking someone's disease/handicap. Horrible!

    Rush Limbaugh has just dropped a level in my book- even lower than before.

    My guess is his boner meds arent working right and all that blood is going from 1 head to the other. Another fine example of a republican.:rolleyes:

    Don't stereotype republicans using Limbaugh as the example. I'm a republican and agree that Limbaugh is a complete fool, as is Anne Coulter.

    Yes, Bush is an idiot. However, I agree with Republican policy. The Democratic party isn't what it used to be either. It has strayed very far left.

    Too good for him. Leprosy would be better. :mad:

    Incidentally, Keith Olbermann covered this well. He showed footage of Fox testifying before a congressional committee in 2004, in which Fox did not shake. That was because, Olbermann explained, the shaking is caused by the medication. As the disease becomes more severe, when someone with Parkinson's is off their medication, they become increasingly immobile.

    Mr. Fox deliberately appeared before that committee without taking his meds so that various Congressmen could see how Parkinson's debilitates a person.

    So Rush doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.

    And, pouring salt in the wound, that smug idiot Glenn Beck, on his show, tried to spin it by claiming the media purposely left out the part of Limbaugh's quote where he said, "...or he's off his medication." Far as I know, the media didn't leave that out; Glenn Beck was just trying to spin it to make Limbaugh look good. Besides which, as I said, Beck has it wrong anyway; you don't spasm more when you're off the medication, it's when you're on it.

    But then Glenn Beck is a disgusting little slimeball himself. (Am I the only one that looks at Glenn Beck and thinks, "This dweeb looks like he probably got the **** kicked out of him in high school every day"?)

    Aw, come on now guys -- you're all going soft! Rush is just striking another blow against political correctness. You know, like when he doubted that so many people died in the Indian Ocean tsunami. Somebody has to be a cold-hearted alpha male SOB. Somebody has to set an example for the rest of us.

    Your aren't a student of history, are you? The Democrats are about as far right as they've been in the last 100 years. Get your facts straight.

    I don't think there's so much fact as there is analysis. The country has been pulled so far right in the past 20 years that Teddy Roosevelt looks like a socialist and Franklin Delano looks like Mao Tse-Tung.

    The United States Democratic Party would be an extreme right wing association in most developed countries.

    I'm left wing and I choke whenever I hear someone claim the Dems are even close to it.

    I'm still standing in the same spot, but my government has gone way off and shifted to the right. ;)

    Anyway...

    Being non-USofA I don't know this Rush guy, but his comments were the sort not to be made unless you know for a fact.

    But seeing MJ Fox like that for the first time was a shock for me. This is the same guy I watched in Back To The Future! I mean, it just shows how mortal we are. :(

    I didn't realise the Republicans had a policy. Could you explain it for me?

    I second the question, what is the Republican policy? Is this the Republican ideal or the policies of the RNC? Or Bush?

    Secondly, what does the Democratic party mean for the Republican policy, must they be so relentlessly intertwined that by critiquing one we must immediately assess the other? Or is this merely a 'they do it too' defense?

    Now, don't read this as a defense of the Democratic party, but rather how the Democrats supposed 'stray to the very far left' affects the GOP in your opinion. Should they drift left as well or further right? Or maybe there's some tidal effect whereby the Democrats lean left and the Republicans lean towards incompetence and malfeasance. Weird, if that's the case.

    Maybe so but I have less to fear from some tree hugging save our planet love everyone party then from I want to spy on you,remove your freedoms and liberties while doing nothing on the border and bombing the crap out of a country for WMDs they didnt have Republicans. Republicans have been destroying this country, its govt and its reputation. They are simply for big business $$$ and hiding behind a christian label. The policys from this party are not christian values by any stretch of the imagination. Its about Greed & power. America can do better then this.
    Rush is a perfect example of what this party now is.
