A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Shaky Arguments



Rush Limbaugh has criticized Michael J. Fox's appearance in support of stem cell research, seen as a Democratic vote-getting issue.

In the commercial, Fox shakes and rattles, displaying outwardly the symptoms of the Parkinson's Disease that took him off the big screen in 2000.

Limbaugh said Fox was "either off his meds or acting". And he should know.

It's certainly possible. Fox can act. He could be faking having Parkinson's in order to generate interest in finding a cure for Parkinson's using stem-cell research. Sure he could.

Rush--are you back on the hillbilly heroin wagon?

Actually, now that he's off his meds, Rush seems to be having trouble faking it on-air. No news on whether he's still faking it in the bedroom.

There is no doubt about whether his latest wife (sorry--girlfriend) is; be she chat room chick or Dominican child prostitute.

Rush hasn't got the chops to criticize anyone anymore.

Update: Rush just proved my point by apologizing. Not that I'm against the idea. Perhaps he could start one of those "restitution" things where you go around and personally apologize to everyone you've ever insulted or harmed.

But where would he get the time? The three-hundred-millionth American was born last week.

You missed the fine print. In the classic "I'm not actually guilty" weasel, Limbaugh apologized "IF" his comments had been wrong or offensive. How bout just a plain "I was wrong and I'm sorry"? Oh, right, it's Roxy Vicoviagrauh we're talking about here.

Ah, but in the Limbaugh lexicon, anything other than "this is Clinton's fault" counts as grovelling.

Faking it in the bedroom??? If your wife wasn't my friend I would put a pox on you.

Sorry?

Limbaugh was caught with Viagra, acquired using a prescription with his doctor's name, on a return trip from the Dominican Republic.

What he was up to is anybody's guess, though the DR is known for the quality and availability of prostitutes of all ages.

There are those who say Limbaugh has short eyes. And as Rumsfeld says: Do I think that's a debate I'm willing to engage in? Why sure!

But whatever it is, it clearly doesn't excite him enough, hence the big blue vitamin pills.

So why would you curse me with a pox?

Do I think Limbaugh should get checked for pox? You betcha!

Thank you for not explaining the WHOLE article to me. After having refrained from comment for 2 weeks I'm not about to blow it now. I was hoping you would reread and understand where I was coming from. To your male readers a disclaimer. I(and most women that I have spoken with)understand that ED has NOTHING to do with "excitement" not being "enough" nor do we think you are "faking it in the bedroom".
