I fortunately can't say whether it's worse to suffer from regular migraine attacks that take up to one or two days than from chronic back problems or being in a wheelchair.

You're understating JFK's problems a little bit. The guy would stay in bed for weeks at a time and had an addiction to severe pain killers.

Could migraines cause crazy political positions? Tongue
Yes.

I'm not really joking, either.

And JFK obviously was incapable and ought never to have run for the Presidency. And yes, American policy probably suffered - especially with the posthumous veneration thing thrown in. Though it's possible to overrate this stuff. Heck, America survived Woodrow Wilson's last two years.
As to brower, lol. There was no "rapid response" to the Kuwait invasion.

So JFK probably shouldn't have been President.

I'd say he did pretty well considering the circumstances. Avoiding nuclear war on numerous occasions should always be appreciated.

Can already feel this blowing over.  But it does shows us a glimpse of Pawlenty's and/or the establishment's growing desperation to sink her.  More on the way I assume.

Lots of people suffer from migraines. Why is this an issue, why is there a thread about it, and why has said thread managed to run for three fycking pages?

Pawlenty is polling 2-4%. This is a rare case, where one needs to play with fire. I just think Bachmann is the wrong target.

Hes probably not very likely to be VP to someone from the same state as him. Of course he should still be kissing ass for a nice cabinet position or something.

Oh yeah... Bachmann's being pimping her Iowa credentials so much I forgot she was from Minnesota.

In case anyone's forgotten (which on this site is unlikely), it's actually Constitutionally prohibited for both people on the ticket to have the same state of residence (hence Cheney's return to Wyoming after an absence of more than a decade).

I think its wrong to attack Marcus Bachmann for being a closeted gay man married to a woman.  Its not okay to make fun of effeminate men with supposedly gay tendencies.
If he wants to live his life as a straight man, then that should be his choice.

He isn't bipolar. He suffers from Kerryism. It's much worse.
