Novak Quits, Condition "Dire"

8/4/2008 3:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Right winger Robert Novak has just announced that he has retired -- effective immediately.

The political columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times decribes his prognosis following the diagnosis of a brain tumor as "dire."

"The details are being worked out with the doctors this week, but the tentative plan is for radiation and chemotherapy," Novak told the paper.

Just two weeks ago cops cited Novak for hit and run after he hit a pedestrian in Washington, D.C. crosswalk. Novak told us he didn't even see the person he hit.

Thank you TMZ for posting this sad news update of Mr. Novak's condition. It gives us all a chance to view liberal extremist HATE on full display. Anyone who would take this opportunity to slam a great man suffering from a brain tumor is a morally and ethically bereft, ignorant human being.

Oh, and TMZ...when you post articles on extremists like Michael Moore, Sean Penn, Rosie O'Donut, do you use the term "Left-wingers?" If not, you are nothing more than liberal hacks, operating a liberal RAG!

John Galt forgot to take his medications today. Guess he is one of the few, the 27% who still support the tightie righties!!!
Novack should be in jail for outing a CIA spy, along with Cheney, Scooter, etc.

Democrats are evil    

You can always tell the compassionate and tolerant democrats when they post comments. They are always the ones who just love to hate, even when someone is facing death. Just think what this world would be like without them. Can you say "peaceful"?
