You Know Who Also Had Migraines?

Thomas Jefferson. Meanwhile, John Adams possibly had hyperthyroidism (or something with similar symptoms), and Abraham Lincoln had clinical depression. Yet the historical contributions of all three of these men are incontrovertible.

The fact that Michele Bachmann’s struggle with severe migraine headaches somehow constitutes a “scandal” is sign of how shallow we have become as a nation. Sheesh! If you wish to disqualify her for the top seat, disqualify her based on the issues, not on a benign (though extremely unpleasant) chronic medical condition.

(Sorry. I have a painful and periodically debilitating disease myself, so I take this kind of thing rather personally.)
