On the plus side for him...the hospital is sure to have a large supply of white sheets.
I’m sorry for your loss. My grandpa went exactly the same way.
The champagne from Kennedy’s wake is still cold....
The geeser needs to retire.
Thats some health care plan he has.
It's OK, he's insured. He's got Burnt Cross/Burnt Shield.
So let’s see, Joe Biden, Barack Obama and Ted Kennedy are out of the Senate. Harry Reid’s poll numbers weren’t looking good. Now Robert Byrd’s health is failing. That doesn’t bode too well for the Democrats.
20 years ago.
Eh, Byrd’s a tough old sonofagun. It really is time for him to accept a well-deserved retirement back home to West Virginia, though. There’s a point at which it’s just pointless for him to still be in the Senate, as many votes as he’s missing and as sick as he’s been. And it’s not even a partisan thing—I thought the same thing about Strom Thurmond in his last term, and I’m a huge Strom fan. Like somebody upthread said, right now, West Virginia’s only got one Senator, it’s Byrd’s staffers and office people that are doing all his work.
“Ambulances RACE to Byrd’s home.”
Does everything have to be about “race”?
Here's one reason... Robert Byrd Hwy, "Corridor H". He's a master of bringing OPM" to WV. Virgina has refused to provide a link from 66, due to Winchester and Front Royal lobby efforts. But, once you get over the first mountain at the WV line on 55, you come through the George Washington National Forest, on down a winding two-lane, and enter Wardensville, which does have a 7-11 where you can buy Jack Daniels, Couvoisier, Cheese Doodles, and a Slurpee. From there, you drive west at 65 on a 4 lane, until it stops at Moorefield near the WalMart... It's still "under construction", for about ten years now! It's planned to eventually connect east WV with Charleston by 4-lane. You can't get there right now, except of Rt. 50 w..
* other people's money!
My husband said he was sure that the last time they wheeled him into Congress in a wheelchair that he actually was either dead...or they left the machines outside the door just long enough for him to show up to vote.
Here in Georgia, at least in my county, they send cops, ambulence, fire etc for any emergency call.
I’ve always imagined that while they’re all standing around deciding what to do for the cat stuck up your tree, the other side of town could be being pillaged and burned to the ground.
In case you have trouble getting to sleep, I use this. It works better than hops and valerian root combined:
and they elected this to the Senate??
If he needs a caregiver he needs to resign from the Senate. He is clearly not capable of doing his job.
I’m hate to admit this...but that made my laugh.
Amen. It is sickening to see how respected the drunk windbag racist sheets is to some posters here.
