Doing the Deepest Sender Test at Home

If I didn't have ENOUGH reasons to love Something Positive, THIS pretty much nails a topic that's been on my mind of late. After hearing Rush Limprod come down on Michael J. Fox for the Stem Cell ad in support of a couple of senate candidates* for "exploiting" his "tradgedy" for political gain...

Wait, you mean like scores of republicans did with 9/11?

I won't even ask what he was thinking -- I doubt he was. When I mentioned it to Roni, her reaction was incredulous -- "Isn't he, like, the most beloved actor over the last few decades?" Coming down on Michael J. Fox is like kicking Lou Gherig in the nuts -- and as about as popular with the hoi polloi.

To "counter" the ad? Patricia Heaton, the guy who played Jesus in Passion of the Christ, and the pitcher for the Tigers baseball team. Apparently they're opposed to human "cloning", which has little to nothing to do with stem cell research. Oh, and news flash? These three "C" list celebrities wouldn't counter an ad starring Danny Bonaduce, much less Mr. Fox.

Now if they could come up with a cure for the crazy asshole who keeps screaming across the street.

* I'm not even speaking of the initial "He's off his meds/acting" comment, but the smarmy little pseudo-apology after he was slammed from coast to coast -- even by other repugnants.
