Mukasey Collapses

From TPM:

“Attorney General Michael Mukasey collapsed this evening while giving a speech to Federalist Society in Washington, DC. (…)

As best we can tell no news service has any new substantive information about the AG’s health, other than the initial news that he began slurring his speech and then shaking and then collapsed. There seems to be no solid information about whether he regained consciousness.”

I hope he’s OK; my thoughts are with him and his family.


UPDATE: From a DoJ statement (via TPM):

“The Attorney General is conscious, conversant and alert. His vital statistics are strong and he is in good spirits. He is receiving excellent care and appreciates all of the good wishes and prayers he has received. The doctors will keep him overnight for further observations.”

TPM also has an eyewitness account of his collapse here.
