While I am severely tempted to make a remark about injuries suffered after being thrown under the campaign bus, I shall stick just with what we know. Barak Obama’s 86 year old grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, is described as critically ill, and Obama is heading to Hawaii to be with her.

It is expected that Obama’s wife Michelle will fill in for her husband at his scheduled events while he visits with the woman who raised and nurtured him after his father abandoned him.

Barack Obama had previously described his grandmother as a “typical white person”; a racist, in his campaign. However, he does in fact owe his very existence to her.

We at Right Pundits wish her well, regardless of our politics. And at 86 years old, she has led a great life and lived to see her grandson run for president. It is more than many of us could ever hope for.
