The current imbroglio into which Slimeball has dumped his toxic bloviating--Michael J. Fox's disease/disability and the political uses to which Fox has appropriated his condition--elicits from me those familiar symptoms: at the barest minimum, I want to be present when Slimeball incurs injuries (like Chris Reeve's) or receives a diagnosis (a la Mike Fox) that writes his destiny in stone--absent a miraculous, yet scientifically plausible, cure.
With that in mind, consider this report on the most recent installment from ThinkProgress:
Rush Limbaugh has smeared Michael J. Fox, claiming that he exaggerated the symptoms of his Parkinson’s disease in an ad supporting embryonic stem cell research. (He also mocked Fox by impersonating tremors associated with the disease --albeit invisibly to his audience--on air.) In an effort to deflect criticism, Limbaugh told Katie Couric the following: “I believe Democrats have a long history of using victims of various things as political spokespeople because they believe they are untouchable, infallible, they are immune from criticism.”
As I watched the video of Slimeball flopping and shaking, accompanied by the unfolding narrative the unregenerate bully spun to his moronic, degenerate, knuckle-walking, slack-jawed, drooling ditto-heads, and then considered Fox's reply, I was struck by how ignoble Slimeball is, and how fortunate that he's never yet propogated. And how I hope he copmes to experience the consequences of his professed opinions.
