Two points worth mentioning:
* According to the NIH, Parkinson’s could be one of the first diseases treated by the product of stem cell research. That makes Michael J. Fox incontrovertibly right to let America witness his agonizing physical decline, and it makes Rush Limbaugh even more of an addled gasbag.
* [via Kos] Focus groups demonstrate that on a political level the ad was a home run with men on base. Please, Rush, say something stupid tomorrow. Watching this ad pushes Democrats, Republicans and Independents ten percentage points in the Democrats’ favor.
Overall this has to be one of the most inspired bits of political jujitsu in history. If he loses Jim Talent can spend long hours pondering how he got his ass kicked by a guy who can barely walk.
