Why switch off the lights?
While at the table, Kennedy began having seizures that lasted for several minutes. As they were carrying Kennedy out of the room, he was still seizing. President Barack Obama went out of the room with him, but he is back in the luncheon room now.
"After being taken from the lunch, Byrd was seen sitting in a wheelchair in a hallway outside the House chamber, surrounded by three individuals," Roll Call reports. "He appeared alert and responsive, telling an individual, 'I’m OK,' when asked. At 2:45, Byrd was wheeled around the corner and onto an elevator north of the chamber.
"Meanwhile, House Chaplain Daniel Coughlin told the luncheon attendees that Kennedy, who apparently was seizing, 'responded well to the Congressional medical team here and has now been taken from the building.'"
"Dodd said that Kennedy told him, 'I'll be okay. I'll see you later,' reports CNN.
"Kennedy's wife, Vicki, was with him, Dodd said. 'She knows what to do. He's in good shape.'
"Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, said Secret Service officers moved in right away and that someone later asked for a moment of silence.

[...] Sen. Robert Byrd also collapsed at the same luncheon.
Currently there is no information available on the status or condition of Sen. Byrd.

The people of Mass would vote his mummified corpse into the seat if they could. I'm beginning to think they keep electing him not because they like him but because they get a kick out of driving the rest of the country crazy.
Yeah... must be that. So now Obama has killed his grandmother, campaign manager, and is attempting to off Senators Byrd and Kennedy.
