Don't know much about Parkinson's do you?

Why let a few facts get in the way of a good opinion?

Actually my Great Grandfather had it, and it runs in my family. His head and hands would twitch and you never knew when or how long it would last. But I still can't image anyone would film a guy actually having the movements, they'd wait until he was finished for sensitivity reasons.

Unless the guy was ok with it to make his point.

But they can't really wait until he's finished because as I understand it there's really not a finished for him. It's a constant push pull for him with the medications and symptoms- and when he is under stress, such as in a TV interview, the symptoms automatically get worse. And he has had it for 15 years, it is a progressive disease and one person's symptoms will be different than another's.

The only person who needs to do anything for sensitivity reasons is Rush Limbaugh.
