Poor Rush is complaining that irresponsible charges were brought against him because his ditto cam showed him mocking MJ Fox

LIMBAUGH: We had a call yesterday, and I dealt with this yesterday, and I will deal with it again today as often as I have to, because there is an irresponsible charge, and an irresponsible misuse of video from my ditto cam here -- by the way, welcome to all of you watching on the ditto cam today -- there is an irresponsible charge that I was making fun of Michael J. Fox, and that I said Michael J. Fox was faking it. Neither of those two charges have any foundation of truth whatsoever and, yet, they continue to be leveled and they continue to be distorted and amplified upon.

Then explain this to all of us Limbaugh?

Now he blames MJ Fox for taking too much medication:

I was wrong. He did take his medications, and now, he took too much medication. The point is, he did something differently to appear in this ad than when he appears on Boston Legal. And that was my first human reaction -- "Whoa! I've never seen this! I have not seen this before." Now, I gather from the past three days that we are to believe that this is the normal condition that poor Mr. Fox has to live with each and every day. That's the impression that they're leaving, is it not? That this is how his life is now.
But he himself said he took too much medication. He didn't do that when he goes on Boston Legal, but it happened for the taping of this ad; and I think the reason for that is so you would really, really hate Republicans, because Republicans don't want to cure it. Jim Talent doesn't care; Michael Steele doesn't care; nobody in the Republican Party cares. They don't want to cure these things. They're happy, in fact, to see people suffer like Mr. Fox is in his ad.

When you see my THIS WEEK clip with MJ Fox in a little while, you'll understand what's going on with him (his symptoms are unpredictable) and why Limbaugh should stop talking about people with serious medical afflictions and why so many people are pissed at him. He did his job though and I'm sure the Bush administration is very, very happy.
