Former Vice President of the United States Dick Cheney, 71, has received a heart transplant from an anonymous donor. The procedure took place yesterday.

Cheney, who has long battled heart problems, is recovering in the Intensive Care Unit of Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., outside of Washington, D.C.

His office said in a statement:

Cheney

"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."

Cheney, who had been on the waiting list for a new heart for 20 months, had his first heart attack when he was 37 and underwent bypass surgery in 1988.

Searched for this website because it seems that I too am a rotten person who wasn't taking adequate care of himself, and yet the government at some level paid for my second bypass surgery recently. Profuse thanks to The True God who softened the heart of Uncle Sam/Caesar in order to make it happen. Once it happens, though, there are plenty of people in our general poulation who delight in making your recovery a hard row to hoe ... c'est la vie in this present system of things....

Bonner88 is the loser here. My guess is that you think Cheney is a winner after bilking the country out of billions for Halliburton and spending a trillion on an unnecessary war. Do some reading you moron and watch something besides fox news.

Better given to Cheney than the loser sittin' in the White House. Least Cheney had a heart to start with....not so with The Anointed One! Dictator types are typically heartless!

He dodged the draft with five (5) different deferments during the Vietnam War and has lived off the governmenr tit for 40+ years. All this great service to the country not to mention helping to mis-lead the United States into an unnecessary war by lying.

HE SERVED HIS COUNTRY, WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT. HE DESERVES A TRANPLANT, MORE THAN SOME WELFARE RECIPIENT, THAT JUST TAKES UP SPACE, CONTRIBUTES NOTHING, AND PAYS NO INCOME TAX.

Actually, there is no proof that Cheney is now, nor has ever been human. He is of the Dark Lord species and needs to consume human hearts in order to survive. Once a consumed heart slowly withers away inside him, he demands his minions find him a new sacrifice.

Regardless of your political views, he is a human being. How childish to attack a man when hes down. I hope he does well, i dont care what his politics are. Heartless people

"wow" never knew he had a heart.

Cheney needn’t have waited 20 months for a “human� heart. Surely, there must have been some jackal road kill available somewhere; which would also, coincidentally, have solved the problem of rejection.
