Chief Justice John Roberts is OK!

Chief Justice John Roberts was released from a Maine hospital after having a small seizure yesterday, cleared to go home after spending the night under medical observation.  At 52 years old, he’s the youngest member of the Supreme Court and so far looks like a real strict constructionist.  While on vacation, he fell from a dock as a result of a seizure and received minor cuts and bruises.  But, he’s apparently OK!

He had another small seizure back in 1993 but for 14 years showed no damage or evidence that it came from a stroke, heart attack, or anything else for that matter.  It’s something to watch, but apparently not serious.  I was a bit nervous about this, for sympathetic and political reasons.  He’s a national figure who may have been very ill because of this and a real friend to the Constitution whose presense on the Supreme Court could be felt for another two or three decades.  I’m glad he’s OK.

This event illustrates the lunacy of the left. Many a liberal blog yesterday had posts hoping for Roberts’ death. One headline I saw stated “Roberts lives — tyranny remains” and bemoaned the fact that he hadn’t died, but then hoped that he would live long enough for SWMNBN to appoint a successor. Very sick…
