Presidency Off to Hopeful Start, Except for Pheasants
UPDATE – The Pheasants Fight Back!

Of course there’s nothing funny about seizures (except that old joke about having an epileptic make you a glass of chocolate milk), but when I go to Fox News for awful reporting, They never disappoint:

Sens. Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd both were removed from President Obama's celebratory inaugural luncheon on Tuesday -- Kennedy after suffering seizures and Byrd after becoming "emotional."

A Republican House leadership member said Kennedy suffered a series of convulsions that lasted a while. He was taken out on a wheelchair and had to have his legs lifted up to get him out of the room. He was loaded onto an ambulance and removed.

“A while?” “Emotional?” Are these medical terms? As in: “Well ma’am, it doesn’t look good. Your husband was without oxygen for a while. The human brain can’t go a while without oxygen. I see you’re becoming emotional – I’ll prescribe something antibiotics for that.”

I don’t know how those pheasants did it, but they’re managed to kill two birds with one entree.

Touché, pheasant. Touché.

Epilepsy, however, can be dancing. At least according to Anthony & the Johnsons. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWPJLohfov0&eurl

Seriously? This is the type of thing that people report on? It's a bit on the sad side. And disturbing, of course. I think I'll pick up a pheasant for dinner...
