Get Well Soon!

According to Dennis Kucinich's congressional website, he postponed his planned introduction of articles of impeachment for Dick Cheney today due to reports of Cheney undergoing a medical procedure this morning. But it sounds like it was basically a checkup, so hopefully things will be back for on tomorrow.

UPDATE: The press conference is on for 5 pm today, mere moments from now.

Even people who commit crimes against humanity need a little TLC. Shotgun Dick deserves the best care and, yes, the best prison cell we can provide for him. Or at any rate, the best impeachment and disgrace.

We kicked him when he was up, why balk at it if he's down? DO IT NOW.

Actually, it sounds like he has a blood clot in his legs that isn't responding properly to the thinning medication. My grandfather died in a similar circumstance. Cheney's health really is precarious. I'd be willing to bet that he'll survive until Jan. 2009, though, out of spite.

Another day without IMPEACHMENT, FELLOW TAXPAYERS. I admit I was slobbering all night with anticipation but you'd think I should be used to disapointment by now. (I think I see where this is going, need more heat and a BIGGER hammer.)

remember the debt clock? I wonder if there's a blogger with a background in medical administration is keeping track of how much money the federal gov't is spending on Dick Cheney and his assorted maladies. There are so many bloggers out there, you'd think there would be at least one doing this.

oops: ..with a background in medical administration [who] is keeping track...

i think he'd look better with a peg leg, scooting around the talk shows warning of the great white existential threat

Sure, a peg leg. He's already got that "Yarr!! ye scurvy bilge-rat" face.

That's very sweet of Kucinich, but unrealistic if he's worried that the articles of impeachment would give Cheney a heart attack or something. Cheney could get a heart attack by getting his watch strap changed.
