Is Dick Cheney Too Old for a Heart Transplant?

"As Dick Cheney recovers from heart transplant surgery, questions are being raised about whether the former vice president is too old for a new heart. Cheney, 71, who received the new heart Saturday at a hospital in Falls Church, Va., has been on the cardiac transplant list for more than 20 months."

Brought to you by the same people who said there were no "death panels". Well if a bunch of ninnies are complaining about Cheney getting a new heart because they hate him and wished he would die,

what would you call it when the national health system does indeed say: You are too old to live?

DISCLAIMER: I am no fan of Dick Cheney but I don't see the need in wishing people harm as seems to be perfectly fine (and not vitriolic) if you are a neo-liberal. I'm sure if Jimmy Carter, Bill Kilthem (I mean Clinton), or Ted Kennedy were denied a heart if would be A FAILURE OF THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!

Quote of the Day

"I once read that as a little boy in Lhasa, you liked war toys."

Yes, very much. I also had an air rifle in Lhasa. And I have one in India. I often feed small birds, but when they come together, hawks spot them and catch them - a very bad thing. So in order to protect these small birds, I keep a rifle.

"So it is a Buddhist rifle?"

[Laughs.] A compassionate rifle!
