George McGovern Placed in Hospice Care


Recommended Posts

Here's some very sad news: George McGovern has been placed in hospice care to live out his final days. He had been seriously ill for the past year.


Though I strongly disagree with Senator McGovern's political views, I would rank him alongside Bob Dole and John McCain as among the most honorable men to receive a presidential nomination (in modern times). He was a World War II hero, but never bragged about those accomplishments. Prior to getting the 1972 Democratic nomination, he headed a commission that made the nomination process far more democratic than it had previously been. (Before 1972, party bosses largely controlled who a presidential nominee would be.) Though he set out to only reform how the Democrats nominated their presidential candidates, the GOP adopted many of McGovern's own recommendations by 1976.

I wish George well on his journey home. He was not just a good person and a war hero, he was a true public servant who fought for the average and poor citizen. His loss to the depraved criminal Nixon sent our country onto a path of darkness from which I do not think that we have every fully recovered. Goes to show how the American people can have horrifically bad judgment of politicians.

    • Kenny mentioned how quickly they all got sick and died. How about Kayla? She was doing her rounds and they wanted to do blood work. She resisted saying she was fine but finally agreed. A few moments later she's told her numbers had dropped. She's like I'm fine and boom she collapsed. Please register in order to view this content  
    • Miami Vice weakened Falcon Crest in 1985/86 and if NBC left Miami Vice at Friday 10 pm in 1986/87 it might have finished off Falcon Crest. Miami Vice may have been the new hotness, but they still got beat by Murder, She Wrote. It will never not be funny to me that Miami Vice was clean swept by Murder, She Wrote (in weeks where new episodes of both shows were broadcast, Murder, She Wrote finished ahead of Miami Vice in all those weeks). Angela Lansbury referred to Miami Vice as Miami Heat in a 1985 Los Angeles Times interview. It might have been an accident or she might have been throwing shade but in an elegant and classy way though. 
    • I uploaded this episode. I wondered why there were missing scenes. When you scroll at the timeline you see all scenes, but when you watch the video, the end is black for 6 minutes.   i hope they upload it full again.

    • Team Thomas, but getting full custody of Douglas is a LONG shot.  This simply comes down to what Douglas wants.  Poor kid, torn between his parents.
