Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman fainted in his district office in California yesterday. As chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, Waxman had recently finished up work on mind-blowing climate change legislation and was gearing up for almost-as-disastrous health care reform when Congress returns from its July 4 recess on Monday.

I would like to offer my congratulations to the Congressman. Once anyone really thinks about the kind of harm these bills could inflict on the average American citizen, fainting is a pretty darn good reaction. In fact, I think it indicates a level of robustness and health previously unseen in House Energy and Commerce Committee chairs.

Undoubtedly, Waxman has realized this himself, and a radical change in policy is forthcoming.

.....on a more serious note, I do, of course, hope that the Congressmen makes a full and speedy recovery.
