Well, I have to pray for both of them regardless.
He'll recover by Robert's hearing.

Lots of people have mini-strokes, some frequently. It might be nothing more than turning the head so an artery is momentarily constricted. Can happen at any age.

He's supposed to be dedicating the new Laughlin Marina next week. I was going to go and have a bit of fun. Damn. I know this is terrible, and I usually send out prayers for those of whatever political persuasion, but there's something about him I cannot stand and I just don't care. I know, it's horrible. But I'm being honest.

Sounds like a TIA to me sometimes referred to as mini strokes. He will probably have to take a low dosage asprin daily for the rest of his life.

The primary concern at this point from a medical standpoint is WHY the TIA occurred.
Without targeting that, the spells are very likely to continue.
Sounds like the Lord is giving him a warning shot off the port bow

In the 60's there was a TV show called "The Invaders". The aliens in the series, who looked human, used a small hand-held device to induce heart attacks in people who discovered the aliens true identity. Could Karl Rove.....? Naw!

Better check Karl's pinky fingers.

"Strokes are caused by a lack of blood supply and thus oxygen to the brain."


Minor correction. Strokes are caused by blood clots or blockage in the brain. They can also occur in tandem with heart attacks, or from the collapse of an arterial wall.

Lack of blood and oxygen to the brain result from those events. You're spot on there.

A minor stroke for a minority party leader. The rats can't seem to commit to anything these days.

I hope he recovers soon else the rats might pick a less incompetent minority leader.

As I recall, when the aliens were killed in "The Invaders" they dissolved into red flame, then dust... An intrepid reporter was tracking them down. Hmmmnn...

For three years (1999-2001) there was a SciFi channel show called "First Wave" where the aliens dissolved into red flame, then dust when they were killed... A man falsely convicted of murdering his wife (the aliens did it to set him up) was tracking down the aliens and their operation.

Seems a bit re-cycled.

The man has been nothing more than a pompous blowhard willing to say or do anything to impugn the integrity of our president and undermine the war effort. By his statements, he has given aid and comfort to our enemies. How many soldiers lives have been lost because Iraq terrorists have been encouraged by his statements? If this stroke takes him out of congress, good riddance to bad rubbish.

If I hear another "Sending Prayers" "Praying for Harry Reid" I'm going to be sick.

Harry Reid doesn't deserve anyone's prayers. He is a dirty lying corrupt politician. While wishing ill on him is something I'd never do, praying for him is taking it a bit too far.

Ever see "Dave" Of course the guy playing the president really had a stroke and Kevin Kline's main charachter was just a stand-in, but that was the premise, that a "minor circulatory problem of the head" gave him an epiphany that changed him as a leader...

Prayers for Dingy Harry for a speedy recovery, and a speedy retirement...

Well, I guess that Turbin Durbin would be the leader of the dims in the senate, but Dingy Harry's demise doesn't throw the senate to the dims. The GOP is still in charge-it's just hard to tell by looking since the Republicans don't usually act like they are.

Knowing one near and dear who suffered a mild stroke/TIA, some of the side effects are often underdiagnosed; including mild depression, detachment, forgetfulness, confusion, anger, fatigue, etc.
