No Stroke For Ted Kennedy...

"Sen. Ted Kennedy's condition appeared to be improving as his friends, family and colleagues prepared for the night watch Saturday evening after two apparent seizures sent him to a Boston hospital.

The Massachusetts senator is "conscious, talking, joking with family," according to a spokeswoman.

Kennedy, the liberal anchor of the U.S. Senate and remaining patriarch of the storied Kennedy family, was still undergoing tests at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a medical update was not expected for at least another day. He does not appear to have had a stroke as was initially suspected."

Looks like the old drunk may have had one too many, and his slurring of words, lack of coordination, and general inability to frame a coherent sentence was mistaken for something other than downing shots till he dropped.
