本周的Jackass:Rush Limbaugh

大卫蒙哥马利,报道华盛顿邮报

周一赶去林堡,迈克尔JFox looked like a faker. The actor, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, has done a series of political ads supporting candidates who favor stem cell research, including Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin, who is running against Republican Michael Steele for the Senate seat being vacated by Paul Sarbanes.

“He is exaggerating the effects of the disease,” Limbaugh told listeners“He’s moving all around and shaking and it’s purely an act......这对Michael J来说真是无耻狐狸Either he didn’t take his medication or he’s acting.”

这很难看,因为这种疾病显然对福克斯造成了影响,但是这是一个强大而诚实的商业广告,我鼓励你观看它福克斯没有歪曲这些广告所针对的共和党人的立场,他并没有夸大干细胞研究的前景任何怀疑David Montgomery引用Limbaugh脱离背景的人都可以听来自Limbaugh's show的整个片段

有些人可能会觉得这对于万博manbetx贴吧来说太政治了但我并没有把林堡称为蠢货,因为我不同意他在这个问题上的政治I’m calling him a jackass — and it’s taking a lot of restraint not to call him something far worse — because his response to Fox’s honest, genuine advocacy regarding an important, serious issue is one of the lowest, most demeaning cheap shots I’ve ever seen.

更新:几位读者通过电子邮件指出,“邮报”中的文章声称Limbaugh“道歉”,引用他如下:

“So I will bigly, hugely admit that I was wrong, and I will apologize to Michael JFox, if I am wrong in characterizing his behavior on this commercial as an act.”

然后林博转向另一种批评:“迈克尔JFox is allowing his illness to be exploited and in the process is shilling for a Democratic politician.”

因此,根据林博的说法,福克斯的状况使他无法就此问题发表言论即为...提供对干细胞研究的支持是不公平的展示这种病多么悲伤。

我相信Michael J如果他活着看到帕金森病治愈的那一天,福克斯会感到极度剥削。

更新Redux:一些道歉。林堡,今天:“我支持我说的话我收回了我所说的一切我不会以任何不同的方式改写它It is what I believe; it is what I think这是我发现的真实。“
