Mega-dittos (whatever that means)

A recent story caught my eye. A broadcaster, who over the last two decades has built a media empire that nearly rivals my own, said something that was hard to believe. He criticized a man with Parkinson's disease for shaking. And not just any man; this was Michael J. Fox. The lovable Alex P. Keaton, Marty McFly. This statement was so outlandish -- and the ensuing "apology" so insincere -- that I had to investigate. The Armed Revolutionary Forces' intelligence wing pored over reams of data, analyzing facial movements, voice inflections, radio hiss. The ARF operatives then gave me a thorough presentation of their findings. And now, I am ready to release the results of this analysis.

No man -- regardless of how many illegal pain pills he was high on -- could be doltish enough to call Michael J. Fox "shameless" for displaying the symptoms of a disease he was diagnosed with 15 years ago. Rush Limbaugh must have been faking.

You tell 'em Ayatollah! No one disses MJF!

And your media empire is superior to Rush Limbaugh's anyway, in my poodle opinion.

I'd laugh at Limbaugh, 'cept my mom died of Parkinson's in 2001. It's an ugly disease.

Amazing how lacking in sensitivity some humans are, especially in an election year! I'm thinking Rush has this problem all the time.

Dogs are so much nicer than people.

"Doltish" was the right word, Bro. Mugsy. All I can say is consider the source...sometimes "doltish" louts need to keep their mouths shut and not let the whole world see just how insensitive, thoughtless, and totally ignorant they are about something as tragic as Parkinson's Disease.

It's hard to believe anyone doesn't recognize the rhythmic tremors and muscular rigidity of Parkinson's.
