DU: Rove Caught Strokin' It

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has suffered a mild stroke today, but fortunately suffered no complications and seems to be fine. We wish hims a complete and speedy recovery.

The "reality-based community" was quick to note, however, that Reid's stroke came after the stroke of Cindy Sheehan's 74 year-old mother, and you know what that means:

"KHANNNNNNN!!!", err, uh "ROOOOOOVE!!!"

Luckily for democracy, we have the best and brightest of the Democratic Underground on the case.

From long-time DU poster kilbotfactory:

they already have drugs that cause heart attacks but don't worry, I'm sure the Bush administration would never do something illegal like that...

Why, of course not. Not with these intrepid detectives waiting in the wings.

This is quickly followed up by wakeme2008:

I do not know, a lot of stokes this week and one pulled Cindy out of Crawford which does help *.

completes the trifecta for the Party of Serious Thinking with:

If They Take Reid Out, Do the Rethugs Pick Up The Seat?

Yep, they're onto us.

Good post, I was going more with the "obstruction-blockage-filibuster" angle......

With Reid, it would be difficult to tell the difference.

Everytime I think they can't get any crazier...

Clinton would have just shot down the plane Cindy was on or had her commit suicide (pull a Foster).

I think these folks have moved beyond a red state/blue state divide... They're on another planet and the oxygen supply is running low.

You have to be a raving loon to even think such things in regard to Reid's health problem, let alone write them down and expose your lunacy to the world.

To even begin questioning whether his death would give the seat to the GOP is just nuts! And somehow, I don't think that Senator Reid would appreciate all the speculation on his premature demise. But these creatures writing this garbage are his creatures, he feeds them, and now they come back and bite the master.

The DU's aren't the only ones with this theory:;action=display;num=1123592134;start=120#120

Apparently, this is simply a continuation of the tactics Nixon used to give Martha Mitchell cancer.

I dunno... You didn't mention "ChimpyMcBusHitler," so they may not have all the evidence yet.

*sheesh* What the heck is in their heads that attempts to function as a brain?!
