Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond: Now you tell me Johnny; thanks a lot -- Isakson's health mystery solved

Tom Keefe writes in the AJC:

The big mystery behind the illness that put Sen. Johnny Isakson in the hospital and rattled his re-election campaign has been revealed.

It was a tiny bump on his right ear.

Odds are on Republican Isakson to win re-election. But concern over his health was one of the reasons Democratic Georgia Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond, 57, cited in his decision to run against the senator, who's seeking his second term.

Isakson has downplayed discussion about his health ever since.

"My health scare," he told me a few days ago, "was an anomaly."

Here’s a little tidbit from our Senator, Johnny Issacson (R – Georgia) during his meeting with Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle.

Republicans, who heard Angle’s presentation were, to a letter, impressed. “She said she won, she needed money, and wanted to be a part of the team and was glad to be here today,” said Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-GA, who said Ensign also showed a recent Rasmussen poll showing Angle up 11 points against Reid. “She did a good job. She’s an articulate lady…This was an introduction. It wasn’t the kind of speech you would give to the unwashed back home, she was talking to her colleagues,” Isakson recounted.

It’s nice to know what Johnny thinks of his “unwashed” constituents.
