    Rush is not obese. He lost his extra weight years ago.

    What sexual perversity?

    Rush is not a fascist pig. He is not a fascist. And he is a human being created in the image of God, not a pig.

    As all human beings do. And I've never seen name calling cause any person to come to Jesus in repentance and faith.

    Now what is your sexual perversity statement about? I hope you have some facts to back up your statement, you being a Christian after all.

    Ken we can either debate Rush mocking parkinson patients or you can do your little thing called "hijacking a thread to prevent the debate" but I stand on what I said in righteous indignation in what Rush did in mocking people who are dieing...imho he is a fascist because he wants the bullys to control the world and he has gained all his weight back just watch the YouTube.

    do lets do this again

    Well, ASLANSPAL, if you wouldn't use perjorative language such as your sexual perversity statement that you have yet to back up, and wouldn't call someone obese when they haven't been obese in probably about a decade, then maybe there could be rational discussion of your topic.

    But until then, you will find it difficult for other folks to discuss the topic you want discussed. Drop the perjorative language and I think you will have better discussions.

    You could have simply stated: "I think that Rush is mocking Parkinson's patients in this video clip. What do ya'll think?"

    back on topic one more time!

    Are you finished KenH...Rush did grope his housekeeper and he did go to a sex haven in the Dominican Republic that is known for abusing children who are used in the sex trade ..he just so happened to take a full bottle of Viagra with him...so it is my opinion he is involved with sexual perversity. My discernment...my call ..my opinion plus news items that have backed it up...but the main debate is the mocking of Michael J. Fox ...so are you in favor or rush limbaugh mocking people who died...hmmm notice nothing on that.

    now if you want to KenH you can start a thread about how you think rush is a Godly man ...do so...but take you bullying tactics elsewhere they may work on a new person on this board but not me.

    in a soundbite ..don't tell me how to post...got it! you are perfectly free to start a Rush Limbaugh is Godly roll model if you want but in my righteous indignation rush limbaugh is a fascist,racist, pig...whoops I added one more...if he represents those on this board ..then it is a sad day...but they can always use "He is just an entertainer excuse" again!

    He needs to repent of sexual perversity ...obesity....anti-christ fear mongering ...he hurts this nation...and please do not use the excuse he is "just an entertainer" he is clearly not, he is an opportunists for his own greed and tyranny of the majority helps him.

    For the record, I disagree with mocking anyone - visually or verbally - by anyone of any political persuasion. I didn't hear any audio on the YouTube clip and the other one is a huge file to open. If Rush was actually mocking people with Parkinson's disease then I disapprove of him doing so.

    I wish that both the Democrats and the Republicans would lose the election next month.

    As I stated at the end of my call on the local talk radio show this morning, I think it's time to let the Greens and the Libertarians have a go at it. And the talk show host agreed. :)

    Rush is not a fascist, but this is further proof that he is simply a bad guy. Just look at the clip.

    I have already gone on record claiming that the Republicans will maintain control of both the House and the Senate. Rove said it, and I believe it. So you will only be 50% disappointed.

    He not only did not mock, he empathised rather profusely.

    Well Rush is not the only one in need of repentance and saving.

    For the record, Rush absolutely did not mock Fox, but did take umbrage at the dishonesty of the political ad.

    I watched the long segment from MSNBC and I must say that I was really not offended by the movements done by Limbaugh. I do not believe he was mocking him as an act to make fun of Fox or other Parkinsons' people, rather it looks like he was just portraying back to the camera the way Fox had been moving. I must also say, after watching Fox perform on camera this past season on Boston Legal on ABC, it does look as though his actions are more exaggerated in this ad. His "rebuttal" to Limbaugh's statements, as shown in the MSNBC video, is also less "shaky" than the ad. Also, if you go to the 4 minute mark on the MSNBC video, you will see that in a 2004 ad he put out for Arlen Specter, he had hardly any noticeable uncontrolled movement at all. Has his disease progressed so much in 2 years? I don't know.

    While I am most certainly not a fan of Mr. Limbaugh, and do not agree with him on many issues, and also do not agree with his big mouth and his tactics, I honestly do not see why there is all this fallout over this. Frankly, I don't necessarily disagree with what Limbaugh suggested, other than that he claims Fox is being used by the Left, which I do not believe. I think Mr. Fox knows fully well what and why he is doing what he's doing.

    For the record, I have not listened to over about 1 minute of Limbaugh's radio show since I carpooled with a die-hard Rush fan in college. Rush is too "unbalanced" for me, and I don't mean he's too Republican.

    The only thing I'll remind you of is that they film episodes of TV shows WELL in advance of when they air, and it is a miracle what can be masked or fixed with editing technology. Not to mention, the myriads of takes. I would not be surprised if the Boston Legal episodes were filmed a year ago.

    Yes, he DID mock him. All you have to do is watch the video at the links provided. Again, this is simply more proof that Rush is a bad guy.

    No Rush is not mocking anyone in this clip, he is just imitating. Rush does mock a lot of people on his show and uses all kinds of voices. But he is not attacking Fox or anyone with Parkinson’s.

    Even if he does, so what? Does having a terminal disease make you immune to criticism for your political views? Just on this thread Rush has come under attack for his weight (which he has in better control than I do) and his sex trip to the DR. (Hey the guy is single and lost what do you expect? I am not saying it is right it is shamefull and sinful.) Those issues have nothing to do with the lying political ads or stem cell research, but he still gets attacked for them. Why should Fox get a pass?

    On his show when he brought up the Fox ads Rush went out of his way to give Fox the benefit of the doubt. The advertisements are misleading and not factual but Rush says Fox probably did not know that. He mentions that Fox may have been off his medication, something Fox has admitted doing before previous interviews and before testifying to congress. He admitted this to Diane Sawyer on national news and wrote it in his book so this is not something Fox is trying to hide. Rush does not even say that this is a bad thing but that it may be a good way to sell your point.

    Rush’s attack is on an add that lies about the political record of those Fox would campaign against and lies about the ballot initiative that has nothing whatsoever to do with stem cell research.
