Outraged by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh's criticism of actor Michael J. Fox's appearance in a campaign ad, advocates for patients with Parkinson's disease are ralling from 1 to 3 p.m. tomorrow at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
Fox, who has Parkinson's, shakes uncontrollably in a commercial for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Claire McCaskill in Missouri. Fox touts McCaskill's support for federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, which scientists say may lead to a cure for Parkinson's.
Limbaugh said of Fox's powerful appearance in the commercial: "It's purely an act.''
