Ghoul Watch

One of the serious downsides to our current political bar fight is the fact we forget politicians are people, and have families.

Case in point? Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota has a blood vessel rupture in his brain. After the news I knew more about the history of sick senators not giving up their seats than the actual disease (arteriovenous malformation, which affects 300,000 Americans) that caused his problems.

The folks that are salivating over the possibility he might die or resign, and give control of the Senate to the GOP need to get a real friggin' life. This is a person, with a wife and family who are concerned for his life, not his Senate seat.

Senator Johnson, while I disagree with your politics, I wish you a speedy recovery, and hope you are able to make your own decision about your Senate seat. To your family, my heart goes out to each of you, and I hope you don't have to deal with the newsie idiots out there who have turned your husband into a number in the Senate chamber, not a person.

I feel the same way.

You will rarely hear that from the other side if the situation was reversed.

Don't forget those on the left that are so busy trying to figure out how Karl Rove caused this that they can't stop and feel for an ailing man and his family.

The whole world's gone mad.
