Oh that Joe. Always tryin’ to knock em dead, never succeeding, literally or figuratively:
President and CEO of General Electric’s Appliance and Lighting Division, was rushed to a doctor after he collapsed just before 11:30 a.m. Monday as Vice President Joe Biden was speaking.
Campbell, who was seated on a stool at the end of the stage set up inside a warehouse at GE’s Appliance Park in Louisville, fell from a stool and off the stage as Biden was nearing the end of his remarks.
Biden paused and called for a doctor.
“Do we have a doctor here?” Biden asked. “Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a sad note to end this on. Do we have a doctor here?”
You haven’t learned anything from Barack, have you Joe? You were also supposed to offer the fainter your own bottle of water and say, “Give him air”. (Except with Teh One, it was always “Give her air”).
According to GE spokeswoman Kim Freeman, Campbell appears to be fine, but was taken to an on-site medical clinic to be seen by a physician.
Campbell is reported to be fine. It was said that his episode was “heat related”. Well, we all know that nobody generates more stale hot air than Joe.
Worse yet, all those GE executives are feeling kind of faint these days now that their knuckle-cracking Cap and Trade profiteering plans might be scrapped.
As Campbell was taken away, Biden remarked: “So folks, as my grandfather used to say, ‘keep the faith.'”
I’m rolling my eyes here.
I guess we should all be grateful he didn’t tell the guy to stand up for applause like he did with the quadrapalegic in the wheelchair during another one of his ridiculous monologues.
Glad you’re okay, Mr. Campbell, and I am sure you are well taken care of, considering your stellar health insurance coverage. I hope you are much improved today. But with Joe, that’s another story. He’s never going to improve.
When you get back to your temperature controlled digs there in the rarified-air headquarters in Fairfield, you might want to reflect on all the workers in that warehouse in Appliance Park you were so proud of — You know, the ones who were left after you outsourced CFL production to China — and how they have to work every day in the same heat that made you faint. Just a suggestion.
