Gov. Jerry Brown is undergoing treatment for prostate cancer, his office announced this afternoon. The governor's office described the condition as a "localized prostate cancer" and said Brown is continuing to work a full schedule while being treated with a short course of radiation. It released a statement from Eric Small, Brown's oncologist at University of California San Francisco. "Fortunately, this is early stage localized prostate cancer, which is being treated with a short course of conventional radiotherapy," Small said in the statement. "The prognosis is excellent, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects." Brown's office said the treatment is expected to be completed the week of Jan. 7. The 74-year-old governor underwent a procedure in April 2011 to remove skin cancer from his nose.

"IIRC, Linda left because Jerry is a homo."

But, to a liberal, being a "homo" is a-okay, right?

it’s a good joke as Jerry looks more and more like his dad. But they’re both bald. It’s chemo that does that.

I hope he survives decades, long enough to see even the lefty types adjudge his Browndoggle Train To Nowhere the utter failure and waste that it is.

Leftist never admit their failures, they always profess we didn't spend enough, or we just didn't do it right.

Bottom line is more, more, more...of other peoples money, even though history proves blatantly otherwise.

Not if you're a normal female heterosexual.

Don't know what Linda's political persuasion is.

Won’t radiation therapy make his hair fall out?

I think heredity already did that.

Brown was a little like Jimmy Carter. If Carter had been more competent, he might have done the country more harm (or not, since he did enough harm as an incompetent).

If Brown had been more focused and not so easily distracted, he might have been more dangerous (unless you believe that his geeky, goofy side made it easier for him to work his way into positions where he could do real harm).
