If you were to ask me what I thought of Rush Limbaugh, I’d have to quote the great R.J. Fletcher in saying “people like that should be put to sleep.” As Don Imus said in 2003,
Rush is a fat, pill-popping loser and an undisciplined slob who was
turning his maid into a drug pusher, and she’s the one who’s gonna go to prison,
and – as soon as he gets caught – he starts whining…
For those of you who don’t know, yesterday, Rush “I-Don’t-Have-a-Drug-Problem” Limbaugh accused Michael J. Fox of putting on an “act” — faking the symptoms of his Parkinson’s disease in tv advertisements for Democratic candidates:
“He is exaggerating the effects of the disease…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.”
Now, I know there’s a disagreement over embroynic stem cell research. Go ahead, Jay, argue for adult stem cells — even though they aren’t effective.
I’ve written about this issue a thousand times, and it’s clear I’m never going to persuade those on the right. Let’s tackle Stem Cell Research for the 1,001th time, shall we?
The debate: Stem cell research will take cells from unused human embryos, that would otherwise be destroyed as a result of IVF donors’ decision not to use them. When conservatives realize they really don’t have any sort of argument, they link it to cloning and abortion.
John Danforth, a man I admire and respect is in favor of Stem Cell Research. I don’t understand why the right can’t follow his example.
11/02: Ok, so I retract the part about being a murderer. I respect your convictions if you oppose research — Matt, you’re right. It’s unfair to call anyone who opposes ESCR on moral grounds a ‘murderer.’
