This breaks my heart:
Doctors who examined the stricken Chief Justice John Roberts called the episode at his Maine vacation home a “benign idiopathic seizure,” meaning they found no tumor, stroke or any other explanation.
Roberts, 52, had a similar, unexplained attack in 1993.
The seizure Monday caused the chief justice to fall on a dock, where he sustained minor scrapes, Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said.
She said he was kept overnight at the Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport for observation.
By definition, someone who has had more than one seizure without any other cause is determined to have epilepsy, said Dr. Marc Schlosberg, a Washington Hospital Center neurologist who is not involved in the Roberts case.
Whether Roberts will need anti-seizure medications to prevent another is something he and his doctor will have to decide. But after two seizures, the likelihood of another at some point is greater than 60 percent.
Roberts is a fine man, and one of the greatest jurists of our time. Our prayers and our hopes go out to him and his family in this difficult and troubling time.
Unfortunately, I notice the moonbat media does not agree. They explicitly refer to Roberts as an “idiopath”, proving once and for all that those shameless prostitutes will exploit any tragedy or personal misfortune to stick a knife into the Republican Party’s back. These people have no shame, and are in league with abortionists, terrorists, and the unspeakably racist Darwinists and Heliocentrists. The only fitting retort to their slanders is to ignore them, which I shall now proceed to do.
Update (by Psycheout): Your prayers have worked!
Chief Justice John Roberts walked out of a hospital in Maine Tuesday, released a day after he suffered a seizure. The White House said he told President Bush he was doing fine.
Well done, everybody!
