Senator Tim Johnson's Stroke: Have We Lost The (Slight) Democratic Majority In The Senate?

Well, time will tell whether Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota will be able to recover enough from his stroke yesterday to continue on. If he must be replaced, however, this is at the will of South Dakota's governor, a Republican.

While reports yesterday said ranking Republicans were quick to say they did not want to take back the Democrats slim Senate majority in this way, I'd sure as hell hate to have to depend on the honest good will of ethical GOPers like Karl Rove, Ken Mehlman, George Bush, and Dick Cheney.

And with Lieberman one of the Dems... well... he's about as ethical as Rove and Cheney.
