WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was treated for an elevated heart rate at a Washington, D.C., hospital on Thursday but later walked out of the hospital without needing assistance and was resting comfortably at home, his office said.
Holder, 63, the chief U.S. law enforcement official, felt lightheaded and short of breath during a morning staff meeting, according to a statement from his office.
He never lost consciousness, and stayed at the hospital for about three hours for tests.
Although he was given medication to restore his heart rate to a normal level, doctors ruled out the possibility he had a heart attack, a Justice Department official said.

Well, at least we can confirm he has a heart.. albeit hardened , nay , blackened against those he ought respect and not neglect and ignore.
If it was Bush they would say it was impossible because he didn’t have a heart.
I wonder if he was treated at the Cheney heart center @ GW hospital?
perhaps there’s is a remnant of a conscience in there somewhere...and ricky has just had his first encounter with it in decades?
He shouldn’t get worked up over skittles. There is no white in the rainbow to worry about.
They would have likely made a big deal out of whether or not his health made him ‘fit for duty’ and whether or not he should step down.

If he has another episode, the death panel will have to get involved.
Same thing that happens to Chris Matthews every time he sees Zer0 on the tube. No big deal.
I was hoping for better news.
why didn’t he just get the pain pill??

Holder (Terrorisms’ BFF) reportedly had a nightmare
that he was going to be subpoenaed, indicted and imprisoned.
But he woke up and realized that McConnell, Boehner,
and the rest were on his side to help Obama.

You think they’d take him to the Nelson Rockefeller center for cardiac care.
It’s nice to have options. lol
There’s a movie plot in that, alien invaders, emerging from cocoons or pods.. hmm,, no, been there done that, ya got the part about pretending right tho.
Hmm,, the old 3 strikes and you’re out.. I like it.
Ron Brown probably wishes he’d had a shot at an offer like that.
Is it elevated heart rate and respirations that polygraphs measure? If so he’s been very lucky to have stayed out of a hospital up to now.
