Rush is at it again today---he's attacking Michael J Fox once again saying: "Fox is being "duped" by Democrats." That's odd because as FDL notes, "you know, only a sap would actively work in favor of finding a cure to a debilitating disease from which they suffer if it meant jeopardizing a big November happy for the GOP.". Now we have Michael Steele's campaign weighing in:
Opponents of embryonic stem cell research who heard about the ad said they found it sad. "To me, this is a shame that they're exploiting someone like Michael J. Fox for something that the scientists say is not going to do anything," said Douglas Stiegler, executive director of Maryland's Family Protection Lobby.
Steele campaign spokesman Doug Heye agreed, saying he considered the ad "in extremely poor taste.
And as Jane says: That would be the same Michael Steele who compared embryonic stem cell research to the holocaust when speaking before a Baltimore Jewish group. Yes he really should be lecturing us all on "poor taste.".--..read on. MJ Fox must really be putting a scare into the Bush Cultists.
The always detestable Hugh Hewitt found another liberal conspiracy to write about--in support of Steele:
I get a lot of e-mail asking me why I point to polls like the one favoring Steele when I discount some polls favoring some Democrats. Because this question comes mostly from lefties, I will pause to explain in as uncomplicated a fashion as possible. Polling methodology and models favors Democrats.
So polls that show Republicans tied or ahead I see as indicating a race in which the Republican is in the lead. Polls that show a Republican within striking distance I see as a poll indicating a dead heat. It shouldn't be that hard to grasp, even for a lefty.
When all polls are lining up against Republicans, it's just your garden variety liberal plot. Hugh, where's your evidence? Anything? Going once, twice...Are they done with old typewriters? Maybe they've all been photo-shopped? Oh, I forgot---since Hugh writes it---it must be so.
