Weekend at Cheney's

I just read that Dick Cheney had six hours of vascular surgery today to repair two aneurysms, one in each of his legs. I wasn't really surprised to hear about the surgery, so much as I was surprised to hear that Dick Cheney is still alive. As reported by the Houston Chronicle:

"Cheney, 64, has had four heart attacks, quadruple bypass surgery, two artery-clearing angioplasties and an operation to implant a special pacemaker in his chest. The pacemaker starts automatically if needed to regulate his heartbeat."
Seriously. I thought that surely he was dead by now...

I know it's not really cool to make light of another person's ailments, but I have to admit that I keep thinking of that movie, Weekend at Bernie's, which involved a dead guy being propped up and puppeteered by a couple of young party-boys, so it would look as if he were still alive...

He might as well be dead, I don't believe there is a soul in there.

Unfortunately Bush is the brain dead one

Bush has no brain , Cheney has no soul.
What a pair we have running the country.

Did you see REW's blog (I am sure you did....but just in case not...)? A hysterical video clip about W.

I have lost all confidence, not that I had any.

Speaking of people with ailments, did you see Mindy McCready in the news too?
That chick is a mess! And the media is ruthless!

I was going to write that Cheney is the puppeteer and Bush is the puppet, but I am just being redundant. YC, you should write a blog piece on the evils of redundancy, one of the cardinal sins of writing.
