GOP Senator Suggests Brain Tumor Contributed to McCain’s No Vote

GOP Senator Suggests Brain Tumor Contributed to McCain’s No Vote:  Republican Sen. Ron Johnson is suggesting that Sen John McCain’s vote against the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare last month may have been because McCain’s brain tumor affected his judgment.  When I first saw this story, I thought perhaps its the good senator and not McCain who’s the one with the head injury, or maybe he just does all his thinking with his Johnson.  But now that I think about it, Sen Johnson may just be on to something.  I mean, if I had a brain tumor, I’d probably think twice about voting to cut off everyone’s health insurance too.

Wi-Fi Signals May One Day Be Used to Tell If You’re Dreaming:  Researchers from MIT have developed a wireless, artificially intelligent (WiFi) sensor that can detect the various stages of sleep, including rapid eye movement - the sleep stage associated with dreaming.  Terrific, so I suppose this means they’ll soon be broadcasting commercials directly into our dreams - “we now take a brief pause from your nightmare, for a word from our sponsor.”

Scientists Say Engraved Bones Evidence of Cannibalistic Rituals:  Engraved bones unearthed in a Somerset cave have revealed new evidence of macabre cannibalistic rituals carried out by early humans 15,000 years ago in Britain.  No surprise there, the British have never been known for making the best food choices.  That said, there always does seem to be that one family of crazy cannibals that ruins a nice cave dwelling for all the other tool making homo sapiens in the area.

That's close to what I would have said about Senator Johnson

Then I understand he tried to walk it back, essentially saying "Can't anyone take a joke?" You're right -- no shame. Haven't had a lot of use for McCain since the S&L bailout scandal (the Keating Five) of the 80s, but Johnson's slur was over the top, even for the them.

McCain always tried to portray himself as sort of a "Maverick" until he ran for President in '08 at which time he sold his "soul" to cater to the Tea Party types (with the possible exception of when he told that racist lady in his crowd that Obama is a good man.)
