You may remember this post where you were directed to a wingnut who got all excited about former Republican senator Fred Thompson running for president of the US in 2008. You may recall the excitement wasn't over Thompson's qualifications, but over a possible campaign poster.
It turns out Fred Thompson has had cancer for three years in the form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He disclosed the fact because, if he wants to be president, people have the right to know there could be a problem carrying out the duties of that office sometime in the future.
Jill puts the situation right out there and pushes the button on the way-back machine to bring up the decade old debate about the health of candidates seeking the presidency. She also points a finger at Katie Couric who did a hack-job on Democratic presidential contender, John Edwards, for continuing his campaign even though his wife has cancer.
