Stephanie Tubbs Jones is Dead in Critical Condition

posted by on August 20 at 11:15 AM

She was the first African-American congresswoman from Ohio, and a huge Clinton supporter, and she died today of a brain aneurysm, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. She was 58.

UPDATE: Conflicting reports. MSNBC says she’s still in critical condition and that news of her death is incorrect, so I’ve changed the headline.

There are plenty of other sources who say she is still on life support.

How sure are you of your sourcing, Eli?

My congratulations to nobamano8 @3 for the penning the best example of schizophrenia-induced punctuationless rant I've seen this week.

@ 3: Are you fucking serious?

Do you really expect the mostly intelligent folks who read your scrawl to pay attention to the message of one who can't even punctuate?

Furthermore, to paraphrase the wonks who only post singular, annoying, phrase-ology:
Hillary will be re-defeated in Denver, we will not support a "No-Obama" rhetoric.

Barack to the future, jackass.

I'm not dead yet!

I'm feeling fine!

It's just a flesh wound ...

Hey, anyone got a spare heart?

Underscoring once more that you are not a journalist at all, in any sense of the word. Underscoring once more what "blogging" really is: taking news fed to you by real journalists, posting it on your own page, and profiting.

You don't know shit until the big boys pass the info to you. weasle.

And no, I'm not a pro. I'm an obserant consumer

Sorry, but I almost forgot to add: before Ms Tubbs-Jones died and was resurrected - she had given her full support to Obama following Hillary's supposed withdrawal from the race. Take that, nobamano8.

@3, I wish you would trade places with Ms. Tubb-Jones. She is a decent human. You are a bitter prick. This is about HER well-being, not your idiocy.

@3, Don't you know this is revenge for what Hillary did to Vince Foster?

So if she was dead, and is now in critical condition, is she Brain Dead, or Born Again?

How do you tell the difference?

NPR just reported she is dead. /shrug

Posted by npr | August 20, 2008 2:06 PM

Well, then.

Update us if her condition changes.

Novak--you're next. Next!

She's a super, too. Seems like Clinton supers are not having a good month.
