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) http://dailycaller.com/2012/02/24/documents-peta-kills-more-than-95-percent-of-pets-in-its-care/#ixzz1nP1mXYuv

    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.

  • Liz

    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.

  • Hugh

    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!

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    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.

  • Adirondack Patriot

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

  • democraps suck

    Worthless magazine…just like ozero

  • 1RedBeard

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

  • Carbon Pootprint

    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.

  • who advertises in this wonderful magazine.

  • MathMom

    Well. Words fail me. But, not for long! My husband’s heart transplant cost under $250,000, for everything, from the moment he went into the hospital until the moment he walked out with his new heart.

    So, Newsweak fact checkers – yo! Check your numbers! Then, check your attitudes!

    So now, the unimpeachably honest “media” will not only act as the self-appointed conscience of the country, but it’s healthcare jury as well.

    What’s not to trust?

    #9 “the little brown ones”? Racist much?

    I read this. Read that part again. Looked at his pic. Shook my head. Looked at pic.

    Bingo! I have it.

    This Poop Scooper must think he is a Black White.

    I feel sorry for all decent black/brown people having to live through these nightmares.

  • YourMaster

    the really disturbing thing is after 2014 when 0bamacare takes over totally…
    you won’t have the choice of your treatments…
    the beuracracy has final saw whether you actually get something or don’t get it.
    I think the supreme court will strike down the mandate through
    requiring peope to be forced to partake in 0bamacare – the left’s arguements are laughable for it’s defense.

    *lol* barely anyone will use it if what I believe will happen… with the mandate being taken out. and it won’t be able to collect enough revenue to support itself.

    And speaking of hateful Poop Scoopers, I am so glad to have run across Shep Smith getting honorable mention several times. Even heard a couple of honorable mentions for that old fair and balanced Mr Bill. Watch how he picks his storylines. I find it strange that on most he comes down on the side that does not inflame the mass race baiters or popular tv hosts.

    He has a shovel ready for Obama on every issue. The best to date has to be his take on gasoline prices. Scoop. Scoop. Scoop. But Obama gave him an interview and signed the paper. But wait. He has a clip ready to “show” you how he really beat them up. Sure.

    “Newsweek?” What is this “Newsweek” that you speak of? God bless you Mr. Chaney. You are and always have been a true American patriot. Godspeed, sir.

  • Freddy

    Just another desperate message of hate from the failing socialist left.

    If I describe this author as a media slut or prostitute, would I be chastized for my comment?

    You Bettcha!

  • MathMom

    #24 owl – #9’s comment about the “little brown ones” was a quote from George H. W. Bush, when he was pointing out his grandchildren. The press accused him of being racist, too! How could a grandfather proudly pointing out his half-Hispanic grandchildren be considered racist?

  • valerie

    Jim,

    Please include the name of the nasty piece of work that wrote this article: it is Kent Sepkowitz.

  • democraps suck

    Get well quickly Dick then you can invite ozero out hunting with you 🙂

  • connie murdock

    So i see it is anything nasty and vulgar is ok against republicians, but kid gloves talking about obamas girls or any dem. Did thier mother not teach them anything or they just ignorant!

  • I hope he lives to be 1,000.

  • jony101

    Is a “worthie” code word for democrat liberal? The heart is in good hands with Dick Cheney.

  • Mr Ed

    I bet this guy and his trash rag were OK with David Crosby after years of drug and alcohol addiction getting a liver transplant only to continue on as an obese diabetic.

    Cheney is a disgrace to this country. His actions were far more injurious to this country than the some total of the Wikileak releases. He would torture again to ensure the continuation of his illusory American rule of the world. A complete fool and ass. Thank God he is out of office. You so-called conservatives whooping it up for war and America kicking ass are just moronic would-be fascists.
