... unless of course some miracle or coincidence tips the balance to 50-50, in which case the President of the Senate, Vice President Rich, Rich, Richard Halliburton would cast the deciding vote on any and every 'tax break for the oil companies' bill that would otherwise be split straight down party lines.
This unlikely occurrence would save Senator Joe Lieberman (DINO-CN) the embarrassment of being forced to show his true colors by voting in alignment with the oily, bloodthirsty war lobbyists over and over and over again.
Wouldn't it be amazing if that were to happen?
I mean... imagine the odds?
Democratic Senator Johnson Hospitalized in Washington
What? A Democratic Senator has fallen ill from an unidentified illness?!? And this just three weeks before the Senatorial newbies swear their oath to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and John Woo. That is preposterous!
This coming on the heels of Senator Paul Wellstone (D-MN) dying in a plane crash just weeks before an election in a race that at the time was perceived to be the one that would tip the balance of the Senate as well!
Maybe lightning DOES strike twice in the same NeoCon ascent to absolute power!
The Wellstone crash occurred in cold but clear weather conditions with two highly qualified pilots onboard who never made a distress call and whose charred remains had to be identified through dental records. All of the plane's occupants had to be identified that way since the fire - which couldn't be put out by standard fire fighting means - burned for over five hours.
For the record, white phosphorus burns under water and cannot be put out by standard fire fighting measures, although we all know white phosphorus would have no legitimate business being on that light plane. White phosphorus is for the citizens of Fallujah, just ask the Pentagon:
US 'uses incendiary arms' in Iraq
Despite plenty of highly suspicious evidence of foul play such as this - and the unexplained 'eternal flame' is just the beginning - a criminal investigation was never initiated by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
"The Senator Wellstone Assassination" - Dr. James Fetzer
Wait? What? The NTSB can't initiate a criminal investigation, only an accident investigation? Huh? A criminal investigation could only have been initiated by Attorney General of the United States John Ashcroft? But wait...
Didn't the election opponent of John Ashcroft die in a light plane crash weeks before an election just two years previous?
Missouri Gov Mel Carnahan Killed In Plane Crash
Since initial reports are that the hospital can't seem to identify Senator Johnson's illness and that they ruled out heart attack and stroke, my suggestion would be search for some sort of foreign substance being introduced into his diet unbeknownst to him.
I'd look for minute traces of Putin
