Rushing to judgment with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Rush Limbaugh dissed Michael J. Fox for starring in a political ad and speaking in favor of stem cell research. In the commercial, the Parkinson’s-afflicted Fox appeared to be physically suffering from the disease. The ever-sensitive Limbaugh charged that Fox was “either off his medication or acting” in the spot. “Michael J. Fox is allowing his illness to be exploited and in the process is shilling for a Democrat politician,” declared Limbaugh. Gee, maybe Limbaugh could offer Fox some illegally-acquired painkillers.
• Wesley Snipes is ignoring the warrant for his arrest stemming from charges of ripping off the IRS, opting to continue filming a movie in Africa. “As far as we understand, Wesley is not going to be arrested in Namibia,” said the film’s producer. “We are shooting and we are continuing to shoot. … We are aware of the issue around the tax charges but we are not discussing it.” Somebody call Tommy Lee Jones to hunt down Snipes pronto.
• Coca-Cola is donating land for a civil rights museum in Atlanta. Wonder if the museum will include an historical diner set that refuses to allow Blacks to order Cokes. Just kidding.
