Here's how gross and stupid (via Hullabaloo) Rush Limbaugh, Matt Lauer, and Susan Estrich (not to mention The Corner - please don't mention The Corner) are.
Now consider this, as I was reminded by a caller on Ed Schultz' show this afternoon. Where was all the outrage when Michael J. Fox crassly used his disease to endorse Republican Arlen Specter in 2004 because Specter supported stem cell research?
Compare Fox's crass performance in the McCaskill ad with his crass performance for his own website which was posted to YouTube four months ago. Being an advocate for a cure and not hiding one's disease from polite society is soooo crass.
