In the interest of dialing it back a notch, I'll refrain from snarking:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he has not decided whether to seek a heart transplant for what he called his “end-stage heart failure” but said he will make that decision “at some point.”

[snip]

Regarding his heart, Mr. Cheney said that he might be able to live for years with the new device implanted in his chest.

“The technology’s gotten better and better and we’ve gotten more and more experience with people living with this technology,” he said. “So I’ll have to make a decision at some point whether or not I want to go for a transplant. But we haven’t addressed that yet.”


Have at it.

Cheney might take an interest in transplant if he gets to kill the donor himself.

If I were a Wizard, I'd give him a heart-shaped watch on a chain.
If I were a Witch, I'd give him an hourglass, with the time running out.

"Oh, what a world!"

Amazing, because of his policies, people who are in need of transplants are dying but he talks about "maybe looking into it in the future?" If he was on medicare/medicaid he wouldn't have even gotten that whizbang pump that keeps him alive. May karma bite him in the ass!

Transplant? Doesn't he mean an implant? It's not like there's something there to swap out.

(See, you didn't have to do the snark. It supplies itself.)

FIVE heart attacks and he ain't dead yet?? I can only guess that it's because neither God nor Satan wants Dick Cheney on their hands.
