We all remember this headline:

Bottom line: Elect Mitt Romney… if you want to get cancer!

Which leads us to this headline:

null

What do you think about that, Priorities USA? Priorities USA? Hello…?

As they say, you can’t make this stuff up:

On Tuesday, September 4th, the DNC will officially kick off. Tens of thousands from around the world will head to the Queen City and there’s no secret, the convention will have a major impact locally, including on people battling cancer.

Matthews resident Sue Falco is fighting stage four colon cancer, and says the DNC will force a major cancer treatment center to close. Carolina’s Hematology Oncology Associates on South Tryon will close for four days during the DNC, because of security and traffic concerns.

Carolina’s Hematology Oncology Associates will have two other locations open around Mecklenburg County during the DNC. An employee says South Tryon patients will be able to receive treatment at the two other locations.

“I’m very fortunate that I can drive myself to and from chemotherapy but I know a lot of people depend on family members who have to drive a distance to get to their therapy,” she said.

Damn that Bain Capital!

The Free Beacon adds:

Democrats are arranging transportation for those who wish to view Obama’s speech. It is unclear if Democrats will also arrange transportation for the displaced cancer patients receiving critical treatments for their life-threatening conditions.

It’s a good thing this happened because of the Democrats’ convention and not the Repulicans or else somebody’s health might have been put in jeopardy:
