Michael J. Fox = Class, Rush Limbaugh = Ass
MS is a chronic, unpredictable neurological disease that affects the central nervous system. Parkinson's disease is a chronic, progressive disorder of the central nervous system that belongs to a group of conditions called motor system disorders. Parkinson's is the direct result of the loss of cells in a section of the brain called the substantia nigra. Those cells produce dopamine, a chemical messenger responsible for transmitting signals within the brain. Loss of dopamine causes critical nerve cells in the brain, or neurons, to fire out of control, leaving patients unable to direct or control their movement in a normal manner.
It is vital to anyone with a with a neurological disease that stem cell research continues. It could lead to cures and treatments.
Mr. Fox did an ad for Claire McCaskil running for Senate in Missouri:
Rush Limbaugh decided Mr. Fox was "faking" or "acting" in this ad.
From Limbaugh's site: Michael J. Fox is allowing his illness to be exploited and in the process is shilling for a Democrat politician. In the process of doing that, creating an impression like John Edwards tried to do that is not reality. Michael J. Fox is using his illness as a way to mislead voters into thinking that their vote for a single United States Senator has a direct impact on stem cell research in Missouri.
Oy. This coming from the expert on drugs.
Enjoy this Crook and Liars tidbit. In which Keith Olbermann gives us the delightful visual of the attack on Michael J. Fox.

For your viewing pleasure - Mister Reusch!
I stumbled here bopping about the net. I looooooove anyone that has bright colors and luscious pinups. And bug-eyed dogs! He proves that Saturdays spent in front of the TV to catch the Creature Double Feature actually can be useful in a career. His work is creepy but oh so much fun.
In his words:"Freelance illustrator/ mask-maker/ poster artist/ spookshow collaborator holed up in a big spooky apartment (that came with its own embalming machine in the cellar) with self-described "evil hootchie dancer" Miss Firecracker and our bug eyed Boston Terrier/ home wreckers, "Frankenstein" and "Mr. Rupert Giles."
Co-founder of the horror-themed Black Cat Burlesque and art guy for Miss Firecracker's "La Gata Negra League of Masked Lady Wrestlers". I type with my middle finger with occasional assists from mister thumb. I've designed snowboard art but prefer sledding and snowball fights. I sit at home all day painting pictures and playing with my dogs, and at night I put on homemade monster masks and chase my girlfriend around on burlesque stages of the Northeast. I really like sitting in the tub with hot water. If it's hot out, I like sitting in the tub with cold water. I look forward to becoming a very destructive ghost someday. There are a lot of mean shitheads in the world, so in my future job as a ghost, I will make them miserable and scare them 24/7 until they go crazy and/or lose all control of their bowels. I think the world would be in much better shape if everyone had great sex lives."
This is how I see the moon. Sweetly shining. Plus I'm a moonchild so..

What Tarot are you?
Which tarot card are you?
Spiritual enlightenment, inner illumination, hidden power. Link between seen and unseen. Balance of positive and negative forces. Receptivity. Unseen guidance.
A young woman sits on a throne holding a scroll labeled "Tora" meaning "law." On her breast is the sign of the meeting of heaven and earth, the Maltese cross. Her crown is the full orb supported by horns, the crown ofthe Mother Goddess Isis, who rules all things changeable, shown by the moon at her feet. Her power, upon which her throne rests, derives from the creative principle of duality, shown by the two pillars of light and darkness. To those who know and love her she dispenses the sweet fruit of the world itself, symbolized by the pomegranates.
