Robert Byrd Returns to His Favorite Resting Place

Don't you dare mess with Robert Byrd's State even once. His health state, that you can mess with three times in one half season.

Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W. Va.) was admitted to the hospital for the third time this year on Monday night, this time for overnight observation after suffering a high fever. Byrd, 90, the longest-serving senator in U.S. history, was taken to a Virginia hospital in the early evening and will stay there overnight after feeling ill throughout the day, spokesman Jesse Jacobs said. Jacobs said Byrd had felt “lethargic and sluggish” throughout the day, but attended the lone Senate vote of the day, at 5:30 p.m.

Shortly thereafter, Byrd went home and reported the same symptoms to his caregiver. The caregiver discovered that Byrd had a fever and consulted the senator’s physician, who recommended a hospital visit, Jacobs said.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, we begin to veto predictions that this is the end of the road for the Senator.
