Kurt Warner???

Whether or not it’s proper, if Claire McCaskill defeats Jim Talent in the Senate race in Missouri by a margin of two percentage points or less, I am going to go ahead and say that Rush Limbaugh’s attack on Michael J Fox — his accusation that Fox was utilizing his acting abilities to exaggerate his tremors or “off his meds” and that was what was causing his tremors– was what swayed the margin of victory.  I’ll say that simply for the irony affect.

Apparently, some anti-stem cell celebrities have come out and are in a commercial against the stem-cell ballot initiative, and by extension for the candidacy of Jim Talent.  They include actor James Caviezel, who portrayed Jesus in The Passion of the Christ, and Kansas City Royals baseball player Mike Sweeney, Everybody Loves Raymond actress Patricia Heaton; Jeff Suppan of your World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals, and…

 NFL Quarterback Kurt Warner.

That last one is instructive.  I begin to suspect him of gaining a sudden case of Parkisons during the Superbowl loss against the New England Patriots, hence the stiffness.  As we’ve learned, the medication tends to cause those tremors — a bit of over-compensation for stiffness and such — which accounts for all subsequent seasons that Kurt Warner has endured.

 Okay.  That was a bad joke.  But I had to say it anyway.
