(CNN) — U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has a malignant brain tumor, doctors treating him at Massachusetts General Hospital said Tuesday.
Kennedy was hospitalized Saturday morning after suffering a seizure at his family’s compound at Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
"Preliminary results from a biopsy of the brain identified the cause of the seizure as a malignant glioma in the left parietal lobe," according to a statement from the doctors treating the senator.
"The usual course of treatment includes combinations of various forms of radiation and chemotherapy," they said.
The story is less than ten minutes old, and already there is much (sickening) rejoicing at The Free Republic:
"I would take a stab at what Mary Jo will say to him but I don’t think they’re going to meet in the same place."
"Strange how you can wish all sorts of terrible things upon someone who has almost single-handedly destroyed the country and then you hear about something like this and you remember what your grandmother told you about not saying anything if you have nothing nice to say, so……"
"Not wanting to get banned,I won’t reveal my complete thoughts on the matter.But if I did they would feature the frequent use of the word "hell"."
UPDATE: The comments were so bad, the forum had to be shut down
