Food Poisoning Symptoms Temporarily Sideline Kucinich
Kucinich Campaign via Yahoo News ^ | July 17, 2007 | Andy Juniewicz

Posted on 07/18/2007 12:21:45 PM PDT by Loyal Buckeye

July 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic Presidential Candidate and Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich is being treated in a Cleveland area hospital suffering from the severe effects of apparent food poisoning.

Kucinich became ill late on Sunday night while traveling from Cleveland to Ft. Lauderdale, FL where he was scheduled to address the International Longshoremen's Association (ILA) national convention on Monday morning. He was accompanied on the trip by his wife Elizabeth.

Despite experiencing severe gastrointestinal symptoms consistent with food poisoning, he proceeded with his scheduled appearance at the ILA event. Immediately following his speech, he flew back home to Cleveland where he was examined, diagnosed, and admitted to the hospital for inpatient treatment. He is expected to be released, fully recovered, within the next few days.

The name and location of the hospital are not being disclosed out of deference to other patients and to prevent any disruption to hospital operations.

His wife did it. She’s hoping to hook up with Fred Thompson.

Dennis had a speech to make
A so for the Longshoremem’s sake
He held it back
Though under attack
By some really bad shortcake.

One is hard-pressed to note any difference when Kucinich shows up on the floor of Congress. I doubt showing up on a hospital floor will cause much of a disruption. Well, except for the moonbats that vote for him. I'm sure there are some alternative medicine types who would like to go down to the hospital ward and burn incense or make sacrifices to Gaia or something.

Wonder what ward he's in? Pediatrics? Psychiatric? Is there an elf-specialties ward?

Damned if that wasn't my exact same thought. Notwithstanding, hope he does OK. Food poisoning is awful to go through.
