19. Yeah - do you suppose he faked the tumor or did he actually bribe

someone to implant it so he could beat a hit&run charge?

As always, DU shows themselves to be the classless pigs they are.

44. Are we supposed to make nice about this motherfucker, too?

Payback time, asshole.

But, unlike St. Tony, I hope the end is near.

Get him off the planet, pronto.

46. I hope that

you didn't scream and shout then, when the RW said the same thing about Sen Ted Kennedy.

TiT is such a sweetie.

50. I'm sure...
he felt the same way about Ted Kennedy's diagnosis... (sarcasm)
Oh the irony. I'm sure ImForGore felt the same way about Kennedy's diagnosis as he does Novak's. Right???:rolleyes:

22. so is Karma what gave Elizabeth Edwards and Teddy Kennedy cancer? Double standards abound. What the always seem to say though is that the person they hate deserves it, while the liberal doesn't. That's how they justify all the hate.

42. Don't know about your experience with brain cancer
but I lived it thru my old room-mate when her mother was dying of brain cancer and it was awful. The hosptial could not give her enough pain meds to kill the agony and screaming the last month - it was totally horrendous and even Novak doesn't "deserve" it. Now, Cheney, yes - the man is pure evil and nothing is too bad for him. Novak is just an enabler.
And then there's Ian who is the definition of hateful.

59. Treason carries the death penalty. Novak has thwarted Man's Justice. So now he gets God's.
You and your sister have my sympathy.

Novak on the other hand... not so much.

I only wish he could take your sister's suffering all onto himself.

28. Not a factor in his "accident." Novakula has ALWAYS driven that way...
... and in 2001, he wrote a column saying he wishes he could run-over pedestrians.

The only surprise here is that someone from his family called 911 when he fell ill, despite being the ones who know him better than anyone.

You would think they would have told him to take personal responsibility for getting himself to the hospital.

79. I'm seeing very little proof of compassion on this board
Edited on Mon Jul-28-08 02:39 PM by Mike Daniels
Don't fool yourself.

There are people on this board that make some Freepers look absolutely understated when it comes to wishing ill health on people from the other side of the political spectrum. true

55. LOL.....HuffPo closed the comments section
on the Novak brain tumor story. Gee....I wonder why... Not surprising. They HAVE to this whenever a conservative or someone they hate is ill or dies because they KNOW how liberals act and they don't like the attention they get when it is pointed out in one form of the media or the other.

They're the worst I've ever seen. I didn't think people like this existed.
