Is it the Robert Byrd wing of the Robert Byrd Hospital?  Is he in a Robert Byrd gurney?  Is the hospital on Robert Byrd street?  Is it a Robert Byrd stethoscope they're using?


Anyone not getting the pun: Byrd has brought more federal earmarks to West Virginia than you can shake a stick at, and it seems about half the things in the state are named after him.  Would probably only increase if he passed.

Would it be too much to hope that the members of Arfcom will show the smallest amount of civility and decorum when discussing this?


ETA:  I guess not.

Byrd hospitalized after suffering a high fever
By J. Taylor Rushing
Posted: 06/02/08 09:12 PM [ET]
Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W. Va.) was admitted to the hospital for the third time this year on Monday night, this time for overnight observation after suffering a high fever.

Byrd, 90, the longest-serving senator in U.S. history, was taken to a Virginia hospital in the early evening and will stay there overnight after feeling ill throughout the day, spokesman Jesse Jacobs said. Jacobs said Byrd had felt “lethargic and sluggish” throughout the day, but attended the lone Senate vote of the day, at 5:30 p.m. He was one of 14 senators to vote against debating a climate change bill.

Shortly thereafter, Byrd went home and reported the same symptoms to his caregiver. The caregiver discovered that Byrd had a fever and consulted the senator’s physician, who recommended a hospital visit, Jacobs said.

Byrd, who was elected in 1949 and now assumes the powerful Appropriations Committee chairmanship, was hospitalized briefly in February after a fall at his home and again in March for adverse reactions to medication.

Some Democrats publicly speculated his chairmanship duties should be distributed elsewhere, but the senator quieted his critics with strong leadership of an April 15 committee hearing on President Bush’s war supplemental measure.

Last month, Byrd brought spectators and reporters to a standstill with a dramatic, tearful speech for Sen. Edward Kennedy on the day the Massachusetts Democrat was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

I'm not going to piss on him for being 90 and sick, thats how life works.

But I've always been amused at the amount of plaques bearing his name in WV.

I'm wondering why, if our health care is SOOOOOOO bad, are they not going to Canada, Britian, or Australia for their jolly excellent treatments.

Thats right, they'd be dead before the treatment started...........................

I'm sure we'll be more civil than with Ted Kennedy.

But, to be honest, I'm kind of happy that 08' is looking like a two-for-one special in terms of Democratic bucket-kicking.

The things that were earmarked by Byrd for WV have just been happening in the last 5-10 years. Before that, no money was ever earmarked for WV. Love him or hate him he has done good things for this state in the last decade. He finally called in favors that he had been doing for years. It is past time however that WV vote him out. May not have to worry about that last part much longer.

The DUers are lamenting the old Kluxer's condition. Put an (R) after his name and the knives would be out. Go figure.


I can't take two old lions at the same time
They both better damned well be back at work on Monday.

I felt really bad with the Kennedy news. This new news is more than I want to handle.


Then they go off on a tangent about commercials that make them boo-hoo.


And how about the ad for adopting animals?
I literally have to turn the mute on because the song she's singing is so sad. And the expressions on the dogs and kitties, oh my god!

We can't have animals now because of allergies. If I listened to that ad another time I'd run right over to the pound.


I'm not making this up.


cat food commercials, now they get me wispy.
Edited on Mon Jun-02-08 09:29 PM by undergroundpanther
And sometimes after I get that way I grab the nearest in proximity of my location one of my three kitties and I kiss'em and hug 'em. Next thing ya know they all want some lovin'too. It turns into myself wishing I had more arms like Shiva or something..But I never remember the cat food brand after that ,maybe because I focus on the cats that much so the ad part I could care less about falls on deaf ears.
Get better byrd. Or I'll send my cats over there and they'll purr and be so sweet and I won't be able to do anything to stop them.


I'm thinking cat dander drives you looney.

I pray that he will repent and get saved before he passes.


I hope that he will soon depart from the US Senate.


I suspect that Hillary may have some sort of poison ut into Bill's drink. Something to induce an MI. Imagine the sympathy vote that something like Bill passing away could generate for her. If she hangs on until the Convention, I will not be shocked to learn of ol Bill assuming room temperature the night before.
