Just a heartbeat away from the Presidency

Late this morning, Vice President Dick Cheney experienced “mild calf discomfort” sometime after delivering a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars and visited his doctor’s office at George Washington University.

An ultrasound revealed a deep venous thrombosis, a blood clot, in the lower part of his left leg.

The danger from deep venous thrombosis is that a piece of the clot can break off, travel with the blood and lodge as an embolus in a lung to damage the organ or cause sudden death.

My heart goes out to the big sensitive lug, and I know just the place for him to receive top notch treatment for this life threatening condition.

I really think Dick Cheney should be in the cell next to Scooter.

Giving up a clandestine US agent is an act of treason, and treason is technically punishable by the death penalty.
