Maybe it was like that Evil Twin Horror flick where the extra head was growing and making the guy do evil things? Hope they got the right one!
In all seriousness, I hate to see anyone go through that sort of health issue. I had to deal with a tumor that could not be removed, since the surgery would likely have killed me. Luckily radiation seemed to work and only time will tell. It's not fun to go through that sort of thing. However, when you have a public "figure" like Durbin, he's game for jokes. I just wouldn't want to see anyone go through that sort of issue, not even a Democrat of his caliber. A better deal would be a severe and humiliating defeat in a public election.
