    Sen. Robert Byrd hospitalized in serious condition - On Politics: Covering the US Congress, Governors, and the 2010 Election - USATODAY.com

    Sen. Robert Byrd, the longest-serving member of Congress, was admitted to a Washington-area hospital last week and is considered "seriously ill," according to a statement released today by his office.

    Byrd, 92, was admitted to the hospital after "suffering from what was believed to be heat exhaustion and severe dehydration as a result of the extreme temperatures," according to the statement. "However, upon further examination by his doctors, other conditions have developed which has resulted in his condition being described as 'serious.' "

    '

    Wow so you feel sorry for a crotchety old former member of the KKK eh. Nice. I wonder how Obama feels about the man. :)

    I bet the Democrats are secretly praying he dies. I am sure they are tired of him being around. After all that the Democrats were the original party of racism and people like Byrd are some of the last remaining reminders of their parties shameful past. Of course these liberals in here will try and tell you all the Racist southern Democrats that fought integration and the Civil right movement were actually republicans hiding in Democrat cloths though. That is the kind of Fantasy world they live in.

    While the Republican party was born out of the Abolitionist movement before the Civil War. The Democrats have much less noble beginnings as a bunch of racist bigots :)

    I wonder if these same people would show the same respect if Cheney or Bush were dying that they show for a former member of the KKK. I bet no. :)

    People can change, I have not seen any evidence of Cheney doing that but Bush is alright.

    Byrd has worked long and hard for the Democrats, you should just shut up about the man, you know nothing but talking points.

    Fool.

    I know you support a racist and a member of the Klu Klux Klan. Thanks for proving it again.

    you said FORMER, which IS CORRECT plus he also said being a member was one of the biggest regrets and mistakes of his entire life....I believe him and take him at his word.

    He was reared in a different era than any of us....

    Plus good people make mistakes, when they change for the good, I REJOICE and praise God.
