Dick Cheney Has a New Heart

Just in case you haven't heard, former Vice President Dick Cheney has received a heart transplant.

Question #1: Why?

Question #2: What the FUCK were his doctors thinking?!

I'm sorry, but this is the man who is deliberately responsible for so many policy disasters that if there was a hall of fame for those who are destined for a one-way trip to the ninth ring of hell, he would be the principal exhibit.

He gave us two terms of George W. Bush.

He got us into two wars that have collectively cost this country over a TRILLION dollars.

He made cabinet appointments that resulted in the largest government deregulation since the Great Depression. With similar results.

He, more than anyone else, is responsible for the dominance of the neo-conservative movement that set this country on a course that would do it possibly irreparable harm both at home and abroad.

And now he has a new heart. He will probably live another decade or more as a result.

I think that someone else more deserving could have been giving the heart he received. A drug dealer who molested children would have been more deserving.

If you disagree, please articulate your arguments. I'm listening.
