Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota is at George Washington University Hospital in critical condition. He was initially thought to be suffering from a stroke, but now it’s not clear what he’s suffering from.
Johnson is a Democrat, which means that if he dies the control of the Senate reverts back to the Republicans. This is because the governor of South Dakota is a Republican and he can appoint whomever he wishes to serve out Johnson’s term. The Senate would then be tied 50-50 with VP Cheney as the tie-breaking vote.
Now, I’m not saying that the CIA and the neo-cons are responsible for this…. all I’m saying is check him for polonium-210.
