Michele Bachmann hospitalized


Paddy just linked me to this, and asked, "Did she fake it to miss the Blunt fundraiser so as to not piss off Tea Baggers even more?"

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann canceled a scheduled campaign appearance in St. Louis, Mo., Saturday for GOP Senate candidate Roy Blunt after being hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.

Is an undisclosed illness like an undisclosed location? You go there in case of an emergency... ?

According to her office, it was a "sudden illness". Her spokesman refuses to divulge what that sudden illness is. I suspect it has something to do with that cavernous void in her cranium, but that's just me. Oh wait. That isn't sudden, that's chronic.

They say she's well on her way down the road to wellness, so my Official Joke Censor 2000 hasn't kicked in.

The illness kept her from making a trip Saturday morning to Missouri, where she is backing Blunt, a U.S. House member running in the GOP primary for the U.S. Senate.

Blunt's opponent is backed by the Tea Baggers, including  Not Joe the Not Plumber. Hence, Bachmann riled a few Missouri Tea Potty groups when she decided to pal around with Blunt.

We wish here a speedy recovery.
