    So he will be resigning “for health reasons” then? Nothing to do with the other thing. Got it.

    ^ Could be, but my money’s on “to spend more time with family.”

    IIRC, back about ’80 when there was another Congressional sex scandal breaking (that time involving Certain Reps and their pages) Robert Bauman from Maryland (“born in Baltimore, reared on the Eastern shore”) also headed for the hospital.

    Chapped lips, I heard.

    Stress, huh? Yeah, I’ll bet! Stress from wondering how the ol’ iconic Sen. Horndog is going to get his bootie fix from now on.

    Your soccer theatrics examples witness the reason soccer will never take over as a major sport in the US. Except maybe for laughs. Or as a way to induce naps.
    (And I say this as someone who played soccer for our high school team.)

    From the little I’ve read, Conyers ought to be distressing de-stressing in a prison cell. Flat out rapist.

    Burn the witch!!!

    Since he can’t jump up his butt and disappear, this is his only option.
