Leftist bloggers have been extremely kind and encouraging in comments about my illness. A few who weren’t seemed to be struggling with issues beyond politics, so it would unfair to claim them as representative of broader left-based feelings. Allow me to present just one example, a chap who calls himself Gandhi, here quoting Tony Snow:

Tony Snow writes to fellow wingnut cancer patient Tim Blair:

“Keep your spirits up, your attitude aggressive and positive. We live in an age of miracles, and researchers are finding new treatments every day.

“At any rate, I’m one of many thinking of and praying for you. If you need to bounce things off a fellow cancer patient, don’t be shy. But in any event, fight – and enjoy every moment!”

Sounds like a familiar attitude …

His emphasis throughout. Apparently we aren’t even allowed to fight cancer.
