Newsweek Outraged “War Criminal & Evildoer” Dick Cheney Given New Heart

Sick. Far Left mag Newsweek is outraged that former Vice President Dick Cheney was given a heart transplant this past weekend.
Newsweek/Daily Beast reported, via Weasel Zippers:

When last we left our hero, he was slowly dying, living out his sorrowful last moments tethered to a left-ventricular-assist device, waiting to shuffle off his mortal coil with calm resignation and karmic equipoise (OK, this last part, maybe not really). After all, he already had attained executive-branch closure by penning a remarkably vain autobiography.

Well, dry those tears, America—he’s back! We all woke up Sunday morning with the chilling news that Dick Cheney has a new million-dollar heart and may be as good as ever, or as good as a 71-year-old man on multiple medicines who just underwent a major surgery can possibly be. Given his track record of opting never to die, we should figure he will be around and ready to go as VP for both Jeb Bush in 2016 and George Prescott Garnica Bush (one of the little brown ones—let’s call him “P”) in 2024. And never mind the minor business with the 12th and 22nd Amendments—Dick will take care of it.

How did this happen? No, not the Florida recount, but how could someone so old and frail be a candidate for that most precious commodity, the human organ? Did Dick do a dick thing and leapfrog a bunch of other worthies, people who aren’t viewed by some as war criminals and evildoers but rather are decent folk decades younger, likelier to contribute to society and to provide a better return on investment for our taxpayer health-care dollars?

Don’t expect to see the liberal media get their panties in a wad over this disgusting hit piece. After all, Cheney is a conservative so it’s OK to wish him dead.

Update: According to Reuters, Cheney, actually, waited longer than others for his transplant.  The average wait for a heart is six months to a year.  Dick Cheney waited almost two years.  But, Liberals never bother with the facts.

    And these are the very same people that want to be the deciders over Americans healthcare decisions?

    How fitting. In unrelated news, PETA kills 95% of the animals it claims to rescue (ht: Instapundit)

    Give them credit; From slaughterhouse to Buchenwald, PETA to ObamaCare, Progressives are damn consistent.

    Newsweek is worth less than the $1 that was paid for it. Far less.

    There is a degraded, dishonest segment of American culture that is the main stream media. I have successfully avoided it for years now.

    The Left wants Death Panels so they can condemn conservatives and their other enemies (free thinkers) to death. Hyperbole? Perhaps, but consider the monstrocity being argued over at the USSC.

    These people are seriously ill and clearly need some kind of mental help. Their reaction is so distorted and vile that you have no choice but to dismiss it entirely and surmise they truly have a problem. Idiocy (or mental illness) on display. At least they self identify!

    And the people who read Newsweek cheer when an old convict who has been in prison for most of his entire worthless life gets a taxpayer funded organ transplant (heart, kidney, liver, etc.) so he can continue to live off the system for another few more years.

    “the little brown ones”? Racist much?

  • Finncrisp

    This is a perfect sidebar for Obama’s Deathcare. Can you imagine who Sibelius would pick for the death panel? God help us. The selections would be totally political , and who got what , or who got done in would be at the whim of whoever was in power. Think Fannie and Freddie with lives in the balance. I think the Soviets euphemisitcally called them purges.

    I think the only right thing to do is purge Obama’s Deathcare now.

    Newsweek?? $1 Rings a bell

    Newsweek needs an organ transplant: a brain transplant.

    I heard that Newsweek can now be purchased in both the Economy and Extra-Soft aloe-scented rolls.

    Worthless magazine…just like ozero

  • 1RedBeard

    The writer of that flippant article apparently thinks he’s a real wit. He’s half right.

    Kent Sepkowitz is an infectious-disease specialist in New York City.

    Good place to study the infectious disease of treasonous progressive scum. Wall it off and make it a prison and I’m sorry we’ve lost even one of our military people trying to keep that sewer safe.

  • Texas_Treeroach

    I get junk mail that’s more interesting than Newsweek (an thicker).
    Let the fools continue to print their crap.
    It’s just a matter of time.

  • slypork

    @13 Thank you I needed a good laugh. This story just makes me weep for humanity. I pray for Dick Cheney and his family.

  • Joe College

    He’d probably get a new heart under Obamacare. As long as he was willing to beg for it.
