Diff'rent strokes for democrat folks?
 
2022-05-16 4:56:05 AM  
It's less that the Democrats are having more strokes and more the GOP doesn't announce health issues.  Have you seen McConnell's hands?  That's not normal.

Being a lich is a private medical issue between McConnell, his family, and the voodoo shaman that helped him move his soul into a black diamond painted with the blood of a newborn.

When Democrat politicians have a stroke, it's usually because of the stress of the job.

When Republican politicians have a stroke, it's usually because they're looking at CP or rent boys on Grindr.

Well, they might be stressed that their constituents don't think they're evil enough to be reelected..  okay, that's a long shot.

What's wrong with his hands?

Yes, it does appear he may he replaced his original hands with hands removed from a partially decayed black man's corpse in some ghoulish bid to extend his life, but that's not so unusual for a politician.

I wonder if he has Raynaud's disease. My dad had it, his hands used to turn that colour if the weather got cold (which around here is still always well above freezing).

Not defending this pos, but that looks like the nurse couldn't find a vein for the IV. I've had bruises on my hands (not that bad) after some young nurse used me as a pincushion.

Genuinely curious, I've never previously heard of this guy, why's he a POS? All I'm seeing on his website is pro-reproductive-choice and pro-labor-union? He sounds better than most to my uninitiated ears.

Does anyone know of there's video of the incident?  I'm just finding news coverage, no videos of the incident.

And before you accuse me of being sick and morbid, I teach ski patrollers, and it's useful to see what strokes actually look like.

Like how quickly it happened for Ron Paul:

Now, nobody ever said that operating the Jewish Space Laser and Obama Time Transmogrifier was completely safe.  There are some risks when not wearing proper head protection.

It's almost like there's an extremely contagious disease circulating right now that comes with a huge blood clot risk, and is known to cause strokes in healthy 30-year olds in some cases.

Wear your KN95s if you value your brain, folks

Yeah, researchers are finding a COVID infection greatly increases risks for strokes, blood clots, heart attacks, and other things for a long time afterwards. Some of the damage COVID leaves behind may be permanent, even for folks who didn't end up hospitalized with a nasty case.

We're probably going to be seeing a lot of strokes and heart attacks over the next few years.

Yep. There are a lot of cardiac and vascular effects. Increased incidences of A-fib, which increases stroke risk. Coupled with high blood pressure and diabetes in our population, and it is a perfect storm for increases.

Well, hopefully there won't be a third Dem Senate candidate who suffers a stroke.  Because 3 strokes and you're out.

FAST.  As in RIGHT NOW!

/dad had a stroke in his sleep two years ago
//mom was in denial as well (or didn't want to drag him to the emergency room before the vaccine kicked in), so two weeks before he saw any doctor.
///he is more or less incapacitated now, with very little working memory (granted, he wasn't doing all that well as an 80+ year old man to begin with).

Johns Hopkins put out this story not long ago:
https://publichealth.jhu.edu/2022/covid-and-the-heart-it-spares-no-one

"Covid and the heart: It spares no one". This should be so obvious, and so predictable - we're going to see an increase in a lot of bad health outcomes in coming years. Allowing COVID to run rampant without any serious attempts to impede the spread is a mistake that's going to haunt us for decades.

Pro Tip: You can get the blood of a newborn for your dark ritual from the placenta, so no one needs to get hurt.
You're probably still going to have to hurt someone to get the diamond.
