RUSH: I mentioned moments ago that a new ad will run tonight during the World Series. It’s a response to the Michael J. Fox ad running for Claire McCaskill in St. Louis, and it’s an ad on Amendment 2, the misleading stem cell research so-called amendment. Actor Jim Caviezel opens this speaking in Aramaic, people say, “I don’t understand what he’s saying.” Jim Caviezel played Jesus Christ in The Passion of the Christ, so he’s speaking Aramaic here. He’s followed by Cardinals pitcher Jeff Suppan, who will pitch game four tonight in the World Series, if they play it. There’s a 90% chance of rain tonight in St. Louis, temperatures in the mid-forties. Following Suppan will be former Rams quarterback Kurt Warner, now with Arizona, and the actress Patricia Heaton, Everybody Loves Raymond, Kansas City Royals player Mike Sweeney, then Warner, and then Caviezel comes back speaking in English. It’s a 60-second ad.
CAVIEZEL (in Aramaic): You know now. Don’t do it. Vote “no” on two.
SUPPAN: Amendment 2 says it bans human cloning, but in the 2,000 words you won’t read, it makes cloning a constitutional right. Don’t be deceived.
WARNER: Californians agreed to spend $6 billion on the exact same science. Now they admit there won’t be any cures for at least 15 years. Same science, $6 billion, no cures. Beware of loopholes. Missourians will pay. Don’t be tricked.
HEATON: Amendment 2 actually makes it a constitutional right for fertility clinics to pay women for eggs. Low-income women will be seduced by big checks, and extracting donor eggs is an extremely complicated, dangerous, and painful procedure.
SWEENEY: Twenty-five women have died and 6,000 have complained of complications. Missouri, don’t be fooled.
WARNER: Why does it cost $28 million to convince Missourians that an amendment to the Constitution is good for them? Maybe because it’s not. Don’t be bought.
CAVIEZEL: You know now. Don’t do it. Vote “no” on two.
RUSH: That’s what he was saying in Aramaic: “You know now. Don’t do it. Vote ‘no’ on two.” Now, these references here to Mike Sweeney of the Royals, 25 women have died and 6,000 have complained of complications. There’s a drug that is injected into women to enable their eggs to be harvested. There have been 25 deaths reported and 6,000 complaints of a various nature because of complications because of this drug. It’s just not a simple procedure to go harvest the eggs. Then, of course, Patricia Heaton’s point: “This amendment actually makes it a constitutional right for fertility clinics to pay women for eggs. Low income women will be seduced by big checks. Extracting donor eggs is an extremely complicated, dangerous, and painful procedure.”
Now, all of this, ladies and gentlemen, is about an amendment that has in its title “stem cell research.” Amendment 2, according to its title, is “stem cell research,” and then it says it bans cloning, but it doesn’t because if you read the amendment you will find that the scientific name for cloning is authorized. It will become part of the Missouri Constitution. Now, I’m told by the people — I read, I haven’t been told personally — but the people that produced this ad said the timing here is coincidental, has nothing to do with Michael J. Fox’s ad, and in fact all of these celebrities approached them to be in the ad, that they were not sought out. So that ad will run tonight in game four of the World Series. Well, I know Caviezel. I’ve never met Suppan. I’ve never met Warner. I know Patricia Heaton. I’ve never met Mike Sweeney. Snerdley says I’m behind this. (Laughing.)
Limbaugh Behind Ad in Game Four of World Series!
I’ll be getting e-mail shortly from the left: “What right do you have to talk about Amendment 2? You don’t have eggs. You can’t be harvested! What do you know about it?” That’s the typical way they try to shut up and silence debate, particularly debate that nukes ’em.
