It was just announced that Arlen Spector has Hodgkins Lymphoma. I am pissed. I have no desire to share anything, even a disease, with that man.

I'm sure your variant of Hodgkin's is far superior, Maureen. And probably more curable and less disfiguring too. So there.

And hey, at least it's not the other senator from Pennsylvania.

He was diagnosed with stage IVB Hodgkins (involves organs outside the lymph system), and his oncologist says in the Philadelphia Inquirer that his five year survival rate is seventy percent.

You'd think he'd come up with something really original, like an exotic form of BSE or something.

At least this may distract the press from important news, like wondering who James Guckert's john was in the White House.

While I have no stomach for the man or his opinions, I wouldn't wish this disease on my worst enemy -- which he isn't. My heart goes out to anyone with cancer, regardless of their politics -- and I find it ironic that in this battle with Hodgkins, we share for the first time the same motives. Strange bedfellows, the homo-hater from the left, and the right-loving homo.
