Feeding on carrion with Michelle Malkin

At times, this woman pisses me off. Like today - Senator Tim Johnson, a Democrat from South Dakota, may have had a stroke. Malkin's mouths platitudes.

It's unconfirmed, but word is that U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) has suffered a stroke. First and foremost, keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. There's already a rush to calculate the political consequences in the Senate. Left-wing blog Raw Story has details:

But bubbling beneath the smile - the gleeful Republican power calculation. "If" he dies....

If Johnson were to pass away, or be forced to retire, the US Constitution delegates the task of appointing a replacement to South Dakota lawmakers, who in turn, often turn that task over to the Governor. The Governor of that state, Mike Rounds, is a Republican, and both houses of the state legislature are dominated by Republicans. - via MSNBC
