Unspeakable Outrage: Dick Cheney Gets A New Heart!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Former Vice President Dick Cheney was recovering on Saturday after undergoing heart transplant surgery, a once risky procedure whose survival rates have improved over the years.

Cheney, who has suffered five heart attacks, the first at age 37, had been on the cardiac transplant list for more than 20 months before he received the heart from an anonymous donor."

Cheney has had heart trouble throughout his adult life -- ironic considering he doesn`t have a heart. The former vice president is one of the most divisive and hated politicians in American history.

Cheney is also the biggest tease in history, whenever he has a heart procedure there are millions of people in Iraq and Afghanistan (and in America) who pray he won`t make it.

The 71-year-old Republican was the real power behind the throne during the George W. Bush administration, he convinced Dubya to invade Iraq, and promoted the war on terror that has trampled over our civil liberties.

Why was a 71-year-old man given a heart transplant, when there are thousands who have been waiting for years for a new heart? I would have put Cheney in 30,000th thousand place on the waiting list for a new heart, right behind Lil` Kim (The madman of North Korea) and the tin-pot dictator of Iran.

Giving Cheney a new heart makes as much sense as transplanting an extra stomach in Oprah Winfrey. I`m pulling for the Grim Reaper, dozens of times Cheney`s soul has been within his grasp, it would be cruel beyond words if he escapes his clutches one more time.
