ok, if you havent seen it then you should go check out michael j. fox doing a commercial for a missouri senatorial candidate named claire mchaskill on youtube. go ahead i'll wait.........
ok so you've seen it. if your anything like me your shocked at how much hes shaking. i've seen him on boston legal and he wasnt shaking like that. at least not during his scenes but the shaking might have been edited out. hes stumping for claire because she is for stem cell research. her opponent (along with all the other bush cronies) pander to the religious right and oppose stem cell research. god himself hasnt voiced an opinion yet though i understand jesus and the holy spirit are leaning toward being in favor of it. those commercials were the big thing yesterday on the net. not today though. todays big thing is rush limbaugh. rush stated yesterday that he thought michael went off his medication to make it look worse or hes just acting. he is an actor rush pointed out. now to defend rush (and i dont do thast often) is there anyone who knows what its like to be off the pills then rush. wasnt he the guy who was buying oxycontin off of his maid. wasnt he caught running off to south america with a crap load of viagra. maybe it was another rush limbaugh with a radio show. anyway to get back to the topic...this just points out that rush limbaugh is a complete waste of life. hes morally bankrupt. he would say anything about anyone to defend the republicants. somewhere theres one of his sheeple who is quoting rush like gospel. hes telling everyone that michael j fox was faking it because rush told him so and rush wouldnt lie. i'm only suprised that he didnt blame the parkinsons on clinton.
heres a comment from a doctor daniels off of the net......
the chorea that Michael J Fox has in that ad comes from chronic use of dopamine agonists in the context of Parkinson's. They're movements from the medicine, not the disease itself. Although he might have odd movements OFF of his meds, they wouldn't look like the ones in the ad. They'd look like the Parkinson's-like presentation of Muhammed Ali's Dementia Pugilistica.
In addition, those movements are hard to imitate accurately because they stem from circuits between the basal ganglia and cortex that you can't just turn off or on. Those aren't volitional circuits. There is little chance he was acting, and if he was, he could only accentuate slightly movements he already had. In other words, this is as tragic as it looks.
hes right, it is tragic. its a shame this happens to anyone and its a national shame that this country is going backwards do to the religious right and this administration. its also a shame that sheeple cant see through a pompous, piece of shit, windbag like rush limbaugh.
ok get on with your tuesdays everyone. if your a big fan of rush you can comment or kiss my ass.
