Are You A Treasonous, Hate-Filled Sack Of Pus Or Do You Just Have A Brain Tumor?

It's wrong, of course, to find pleasure in the suffering of others, but who among us can completely hold back the schadenfreude at the news that menace to society Bob Novak has a brain tumor.?

After all, Novakula is the sort of character who makes one hope not only that Hell is a real place, but that Dante's imagination only scratched the surface.

I can't help but thinking of something the English novelist Evelyn Waugh wrote when he heard that Randolph Churchill had had surgery to remove a benign tumor: "A typical triumph of modern science to find the only part of Randolph that was not malignant and remove it."

There's nothing benign about Bob Novak, and it's certain that the world would be just a little bit more pleasant without him in it. Too bad justice will be cheated and he won't end up in the same electric chair they used on the Rosenbergs.

We can only pray for a short resolve.

You never know... maybe they'll put him on systemic taxol. That's way worse than the electric chair.
