Default Cheney Undergoes Heart Transplant Surgery

Quote:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney underwent heart transplant surgery on Saturday and was recovering in the intensive care unit of a northern Virginia hospital, according to his spokeswoman.
Quote:
Mr. Cheney, who has a long history of heart disease, had been on the list for a heart transplant for more than 20 months, according to the statement released by his office.

Neither he nor his family knows the identity of the heart donor, the statement said, though "they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift.''

Mr. Cheney, 71 years old, was recovering in the intensive care unit of Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va. Staff at the hospital declined to comment Saturday.

Two years ago, as treatment for "end stage heart failure,'' doctors implanted in Mr. Cheney a "left ventricular assist device''—a mechanical device to help his heart pump blood, the statement said.
Quote:
"Former Vice President Cheney is thankful to the teams of doctors and other medical professionals at Inova Fairfax and George Washington University Hospital for their continued outstanding care,'' the statement said.

Mr. Cheney suffered his first heart attack at age 37. In June 2001, less than a year into his first term as vice president, he had a pacemaker implanted, following multiple bouts of heart trouble since the presidential election the previous November
All the best to him and his loved ones.

The blogsite "Ace of Spades" decided to start up a Chuck Norris-like thread for Dick Cheney...Some are hysterical!...

Quote:
While on a sex-spree in a Tijuana whorehouse, Dick Cheney used a live cougar as a condom.

The bodycount was fourteen Mexican whores and one cougar.

In Tijuana, they refer to this as "The Night of the Sodomizing Cougar-Man."

Dick Cheney refers to it as "last Thursday."
Quote:
The only thing hard enough to cut Dick Cheney is Dick Cheney.
Quote:
A Three-fer:

* When a new senator places his hand on the book to be sworn in, very few realize it is actually the Necronomicon until Cheney laughs and tells them "you're mine now".

* Bathes every night in the warm, viscous plasma of freshly killed Iraqi insurgents to keep his skin soft.

* Ted Kennedy is afraid to drive with him.
Quote:
After turning down an offer from Mafia Don, Cheney woke up with a horse head in his bed. He grabbed it, held it like a teddy bear, and went back to sleep.
Quote:
Dick Cheney was bitten by a radioactive spider in high school, imparting to the spider Cheney-like powers.
Quote:
For the past 32 years during his family's Christmas dinner Dick Cheney has carved and served the turkey pardoned by the President at Thanksgiving.
