    Dodd Diagnosed With Early-Stage Prostate Cancer

    Dodd is scheduled to undergo surgery during the Senate's August recess and said he expects to be back at work after a "brief recuperation" at home.

    "It's something that's very common among men my age,'' said Dodd, who is 65 and the father of two young daughters. "In fact, one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during their life.''

    Yes, I am about to politicize this and if you have a problem with it, too bad. You're a wuss.

    It’s rather ironic that Senator Dodd has been inflicted with prostate cancer while at the same time he is one of those running around supporting socialized health care in this country. The survival rate for American men with prostate cancer is 81.2%. Take a look at the countries that have socialized health care, or what people like Dodd wish to refer to as the “public option.” In France, the survival rate of men with prostate cancer is 61.7% and in the U.K 44.3%.

    Of course, Dodd wouldn’t be using the “public option” anyway. The Democrats’ health care plan is so good that the Congress exempted itself from having to participate in it.

    I would not wish that on our worst enemy.

    What a coincidence.
    Thank you

    What with all the diseases that effect females exclusively, I'm reeeally glad that, as a woman, I'll never have to worry about this one.
    It is very common, and it sounds just awful.

    News flash! Most politicians are crooked. Is it really fair to wish death upon this man just because of the D behind his name?

    He made no reference to his party.

    Would it be OK to wish death on all of them as long as it is non-partisian?

    .
    While it may be considered by some to be in bad taste, I find your request reasonable!
