Can't Win For Losing

Having felt a little bit like I can't win for losing lately myself, I can't help but feel for Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-West Virginia) who is still in the hospital after checking in for a minor infection, he was hospitalized as a precaution--the man is ninety-one after all, and then he developed a staph infection. It hasn't been an easy year for the President pro tempore of the United States Senate. He lost his chairmanship of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee and has battled various health problems since his historic choice for the presidency, Barack Obama, took office. What do you want to bet he had a pocket added to his hospital gown so he can keep his pocket Constitution close to his heart?
