I heard he's leaking Novichok.
May his suffering end quickly.

Socking, NOT!. Guy (sorry for his family and no one else) has one foot in the grave. He can barely string a sentence together. Just goes to show length of service not competence goes a long way in that $hit hole aka DC.

You get one of those by kissing Democrats.
He gagged in the truth?

The GOV of Vermont is a republican. He would name a successor
It is wise to actualy know how these things work around here. We could see an epic swing of fortunes depending on the health of some old farts.
