This isn't funny in the slightest: Last night Attorney General Michael Mukasey collapsed while giving a speech at the Federalist Society dinner in Washington.
No word yet on what caused him to lose consciousness, but emergency responders transported Mukasey to George Washington University Hospital, where he was admitted for observation.
Happily, reports this morning seem to indicate Mukasey's condition has improved…
Justice spokesman Peter Carr said Mukasey did not transfer his power to Deputy Attorney General Mark Filip.
"The attorney general is conscious, conversant and alert," Carr said after Mukasey was hospitalized.
And best of all, he's had no late-night visits from Bush operatives who want him to authorize illegal spying programs.
Those are terrible for your health.
