Senate freakout update

There has been reassuring news about the recovery of Tim Johnson, with doctors reporting that he is recovering well after the surgery, and, specifically, that he is "appropriately responsive to both word and touch". Or, well, I assume that's meant to be reassuring. I find it has the opposite effect on me, actually, because I can't help pessimistically translating it as "He sort of moves his head towards you when you say hello, and he twitches when you poke him."

"Appropriately responsive to both word and touch" is more than can be said for a good third of the sitting senators.

I heard Bill Frist viewed a video of Johnson and compared the Democrat from South Dakota to Robin Williams after an 8-ball.

He only has to last until January 1.
