The Truth-In-Advertising Pledge

I Pledge Allegiance
to the Rag
of the United States of America
and to the Republic
for which it stands
all humbug
and so's "God"
with liberty and justice
a mirage.

Michael J. Fox faking his Parkinson's Disease, Rush Limbaugh says

Rush Limbaugh has determined that Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's tremors are "an act." This is his response to ads by Fox against candidates who oppose fetal stem-cell research. (Actually blastocyst stem-cell research.) This type of intellectual thuggery is in lieu of actual political debate. We are supposed to pretend it represents an actual "clash of ideas." But Limbaugh's various lies and preposterous assertions (such as insisting that CFCs don't deplete upper atmosphere ozone, about which there is no scientific dispute) are no more "ideas" than any other demagogue's ranting. Apparently there are a lot of nasty people in America who vicariously enjoy the sick invective and bullying of Limbaugh and the numerous imitators foisted on the public by those who control the media.
