First, the surgery itself may be "minimally invasive" for someone else, but for McCain it certainly wasn't "minimally invasive." At least if this happened to me, I wouldn't call anyone drilling a hole in my cranium minimally invasive; it would be a "big deal."Today we learn that Senator McCain has a malignant brain tumor.
Second, and worse, no one has talked about the underlying reason for a "small" blood clot to have been found. I would assume there was some underlying condition that led to the clot. If so, the question arises, are their other blood clots waiting to reveal themselves; is the underlying condition life-threatening (cancer is one of the leading causes of hypercoagulability)?
We should soon start hearing stories about a) Agent Orange; or, b) cell phones.
What happens next?
Hawaii and Arizona require the governor to appoint a temporary Senator from the party that the Senator who left office was from. So, for example, if Senator Mazie Hirono were to get a new job, the governor of Hawaii would appoint a Democrat to fill her spot. If a Senator from Arizona flaked out, the governor of Arizona would appoint a Republican, as both Senators from Arizona are Republicans. So there would not be a change in representation by party in the US Senate.
This Surprised Me
