Cheney gets a heart transplant?
What an argument in favor of Death Panels.
Cheney has suffered five heart attacks, the most recent in 2010, according to the AP. He underwent bypass surgery in 1988 and two subsequent angioplasties to clear narrowed coronary arteries.
A former heavy smoker, Cheney had a pacemaker implanted in 2001.
In early July 2010, Cheney was outfitted with a left-ventricular assist device (LVAD) at Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute to compensate for worsening congestive heart failure. The device pumped blood continuously through his body. He was released from Inova on August 9, 2010, and had to decide whether to seek a full heart transplant. This pump was centrifugal and as a result he remained alive without a pulse for nearly fifteen months.
But, how do you make a joke about him replacing it with a 'real' one? Something about still having a human soul?
