Fox endorses Doyle

In a new television spot, Michael J. Fox urges voters to re-elect Jim Doyle on November 7th. He points out the investments that Doyle has put into embryonic stem cell research in Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, Doyle's Republican opponent Congressman Mark Green has stood in the way of advancements in embryonic stem cell research. His votes speak loud and clear.

On May 24, 2005, HR 810, the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act came up for a vote. It would have allowed for funding research on embryonic stem cells derived from embryos from fertility clinics that would have otherwise been destroyed. Mark Green voted no.

The bill passed, but President Bush vetoed it. On July 16, 2006, the House held a vote on overriding Bush's veto of the bill. Again, Green voted no.

When Mark Green says he supports stem cell research, he's talking about another bill which passed the House 431-1 to support cord stem cell research.

Rush Limbaugh is saying Fox intentionally didn't take his meds or is faking his symptoms for another ad endorsing a Missouri Democratic Senate candidate, so says ABCnews.com.

a) People should see the real face of the diseases on which so many are turning their backs.

b) Is it funny that Rush Limbaugh is chiming in on the issue of abusing prescription medication?

Limbaugh is a complete and total idiot. Anyone who takes any credance in his comments needs to re-examine their own priorities. Take your meds and go to bed Rush!

Here's an article about it too. Maybe Rush was a little doped up himself on his meds... For once I wish Rush would shut it... he's taking up our oxygen.

That lying bastard, how dare he shake uncontrollably as if he had a neuro-degenerative disease.
