OhmiGod! The Oaf’s PD is in free-fall! Huge deterioration in just four months! From driving! From holding a job! From being able to stand for more than 10 minutes at a time! From being able to be “on the air” for several hours a day speaking clearly and without choking up!
Well, we can start by suspending disbelief. Yeah, I know that wasn’t the answer he hopes to hear, but the following probably aren’t things he really wants to hear either.
Our Oaf wrote those things and posted them to the Internet, let’s see…
…on August 8, 2012. He also said in that post that he had suffered from Parkinson’s Disease at that point for twelve and a half years. Let’s see what else Billy Sez that’s relevant.
Oh wait, wrong one…
No, not that one either.
You know, there’s a school of thought in all this brou-ha-ha that contends, based on the evidence that’s out there, that Bill Schmalfeldt really doesn’t have Parkinson’s Disease. I’m not a doctor, so I’m not qualified to hold an opinion on this that anyone with a grain of sense should take seriously, but I know… heh… someone who plays a doctor on TV. Using some random quotes taken from around the Internet, let’s see what he has to say.
Doc, what is a “progressive” disease?
Man, that sounds pretty bad. Is Parkinson’s Disease progressive in nature?
“…worsen over time.” That sounds horrible, like having your life taken away by someone using a ratchet wrench that only turns in one direction. Is there any hope?
Death sounds pretty final. Once they’re gone, I guess those neurons don’t come back, do they?
Okay, okay. I made that last one up. See, I told you nobody should take me seriously.
Or him, either.
