MSNBC's Imus in the Morning show featured a report by NBC's Andrea Mitchell on "dirty politics" being employed by the Republican Party.

An advertisement supporting the Republican candidate in the Tennessee Senate race that the NAACP considers racist and attacks by right-leaning pundits against a political commercial supporting stem cell research and featuring actor Michael J. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, were given as examples.

Imus commented on Rush Limbaugh's character in reference his claims that Michael J. Fox was only "acting" in the commercial by "moving all around and shaking."

"Rush Limbaugh, a fat, draft-dodging, drug addict -- jacking his maid up, having her buy dope for him -- That fat son of bitch, I mean, enough bad stuff can't happen to him," Imus said.
