Is this the end of the line for wannabe Dick Taters?

Former US Vice-President Dick Cheney, once a leading candidate for the title of "Most Evil Man In America"

Cheney gets heart transplant, in intensive care

Dick had an enormous heart; too bad it wasn't ticking
right. It was a real problem finding the right organ to
replace his dysfunctional heart. Finally a farmer in Idaho
offered this mutant potato, which perfectly fit a man
of Dick Cheney's stature.
WASHINGTON, March 25 — Former US Vice President Dick Cheney was recovering yesterday after undergoing heart transplant surgery, a once risky procedure whose survival rates have improved over the years.

The 71-year-old Republican, who wielded unprecedented power as vice president during the George W. Bush administration’s war on terrorism, was in the intensive care unit at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia.

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.

“Although the former vice president and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift,” the spokeswoman, Kara Ahern, said.

According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, about 88 per cent survive the first year after heart transplant surgery and 75 per cent survive for five years. The 10-year survival rate is about 56 per cent.

Cheney’s transplant followed a series of procedures in recent years to extend the use of his heart. Cheney had bypass surgery in 1988 and later had two angioplasties. In 2001, he had a defibrillator implanted in his chest.

He had a heart pump implanted in 2010 to compensate for worsening “end-stage” congestive heart failure. He said after the operation he was considering whether to seek a full heart transplant.


During Cheney’s eight years as vice president from 2001 to 2009, he pushed a “go it alone” world view that enraged his critics and dogged him long after he left public life.

Cheney was a strong advocate for the 2003 invasion of Iraq and was among the most outspoken of Bush administration officials warning of the danger from Iraq’s suspected stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. No such weapons were found.

In recent years, Cheney has appeared increasingly frail in public.

So, this is Cheney's idea of "a change of heart"? Dick, you shoulda listened to your mama and become a poet. Now, all you'll get is a million Iraqis dancin' on your grave.... and everyone who died on 9/11 will be waiting to greet you on the other side.

This old man is nothing compared to our Messiah Mamak, who singlehandedly in 22 years destroyed Ketuanan Malaysia without people noticing it.

Thank God for Abdullah Bodowi & now Najib Rosmah, Malaysians have finally attained nirvana

Haha, I know how you feel... and no doubt the Evil Mamak's misdeeds have massively screwed up the whole country and contaminated the psyches of millions. Still, he was never in a position to initiate any wars and so we can't pin the deaths of millions on him - even if he is totally guilty of murdering freedom, truth and justice in Malaysia.

WTF, why did they bother to give him a heart now. Isn't it too late for the dying old man to have a change of heart, after all these years? omg

Dick was the real president (the brains) while Georgie was pissed-drunk monyet half the time. Dick was said to have a whopping huge dick (serious) so maybe God is fair - lousy heart but great manhood. Maha Firaun will outlive all of us, I laughed when commenters said they wanna piss on his grave. He's alive while most of us are RIP!

Aiyah, people. Everyone during his/her lifetime deserves a 'change' of often has been said to be instrumental in a global shift in one's presumption about all things human and spiritual.

Well, ye old Dick Cheney might just walk out alive and...and show his newer gracious remade self...on the other hand them people might be dancing on his grave.
