Get Well, Prince of Darkness!


Bob Novak has had a shitty month of July. First he got fed bad information about John McCain possibly announcing his VP pick during Obama’s overseas trip, then he ran over a man almost as old as him while driving around DC, and then he is abruptly diagnosed with a brain tumor while vacationing at Cape Cod–the same spot where Teddy Kennedy incurred whatever symptoms inspired him to get checked out for what was eventually diagnosed with brain cancer. The nation’s longest-tenured living political columnist is now off the job for the first time in 45 years, and may or may not return. This prescient column, from a couple months ago, might end up serving as his epitaph, but let’s hope it doesn’t come to that yet.
