Heart of a Cheney Author: velveeta jonesDate:03/25/2012 13:51:25
Be afraid, be very afraid. Dick Cheney now has a heart. Now, if only he had courage and a brain! Also, the capacity for honesty, compassion, love, tolerance, and justice; but sadly, those things are not for sale, no matter who you are.
But, let's be happy for Dick, after all he needed a new heart because as he said back in Jan of this year, the pump that worked perfectly fine and kept him alive made it "awkward to walk around."
Oh dear GOD! We don't want the former VP to feel awkard! That is reserved for teenagers going through puberty and women who've accidentally tucked their skirt into their panty-hose after leaving the restroom.
Thankfully, Dick will now live maybe another 5 to 7 years with this expensive little procedure that we paid for. According to the Associated Press, more than 70 percent of heart transplant recipients live at least five years, but the rate is lower for people over 65.
And how many people, many under 65, did Dicky-poo jump over? According to the United Network for Organ Sharing,there are more than 3,100 Americans currently are on the national waiting list. I wonder how many of them are in worse shape than Dick?
Also according to the United Network for Organ Sharing, more than 2,300 heart transplants were performed last year, and that 332 people of them were for people over age 65. Last year, 330 people died while waiting for a transplant.
Well, I sure hope that Rushy and his ilk are equally pissed off that our tax dollars paid for this. After all, I don't need a heart transplant, (crossing fingers) so why should I have to pay for him to have a beating heart? What's he doing with all that blood flow? He sounds like a .... a..... well, um.... a jock. Yes, that's it! Only someone who was constantly playing sports would need to have sooooo much blood flowing and beating and such! He's a JOCK. A veritable PRO (fessinal athlete). He's playing hoops all night long in some seedy bar!
Yeah, I dunno.
The Tin Man once sang:
When a man's an empty kettle He should be on his mettle And yet I'm torn apart Just because I'm presumin' That I could be a human If I only had a heart
I just hope he got the heart of a rabid Socialist. A black Muslim one at that!
