Hot prospect

At the news that Tim Johnson of South Dakota seemed to suffer a stroke in his Senate office this afternoon, Republicans leapt immediately to counting their chickens. As NPR’s David Welna reported,

“Should the Republicans regain control of the Senate, that would be an important victory for them after all the losses they suffered last month.”

Never mind that we don’t know Senator Johnson’s condition or prognosis, or that last month’s losses were suffered at the hands of voters in our representative Democracy, Bush will step over Johnson’s body to claim another “mandate’.
