The big news broke earlier tonight that Sen. John McCain has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. He had surgery earlier this week for what was said to be a blood clot discovered during a routine checkup, but it sounds like they also found cancer with it. It appears the cancer was taken out and McCain is out of immediate danger, but this is an aggressive cancer with a low survival rate. It sounds grim.
Also, the political implications of this are huge — the GOP cannot afford to lose John McCain in the Senate. Not that anyone down there in D.C. really cares about that at the moment, they are all praying for his health. Anyway, this is not good news; I just thought I would pass it along.
