Some things are beyond politics

You may have read that Senator Edward Kennedy had a seizure over the weekend and was taken to the hospital in Boston.  And now we find out why:  he has a malignant brain tumor.

I just lost my mother-in-law to an aggressive angiosarcoma seven months ago and it was a fast, nasty, painful, and horrific five-month ride from diagnosis to death.  Cancer is not something that I wish on anybody–regardless of how virulently I oppose their political beliefs or what I think of some of the things they’ve done in and with their life.  This transcends politics and moves into the realm of simple humanity.

This is one hardcore conservative who will be praying for Teddy Kennedy to make a full recovery.
