After all of the recent lectures and admonitions from the left about civil discourse, let’s check in with them and see what they have to say about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart transplant today:
The Daily Kos, under the headline “Cheney Gets a New Heart- Literally Sorry for the Confusion, says:
Contrary to popular belief Dick Cheney does have a heart. $omehow a man his age has come up on the transplant list. His condition has not been released besides his presence in the ICU.
They include this picture for good measure:
Our friends at the Huffington Post are carefully screening comments and excluding the ones that they deem too uncivil to be published. In fairness, the main article is compassionate and non-political, and many of the comments are along the lines of “I don’t agree with his politics, but I wish him a speedy recovery.” However, here are a few gems of civil discourse that survived the HuffPo filter:
First, wouldn’t surprised me if he bumped a few people to get that heart.
Second, maybe he will have a REAL heart this time. For all those who thank him for his service, he is a greedy, selfish, arrogant pidley excuse for a man.
This is TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS. This old old man doesn’t fit ANY of the requirements to get that new heart. He’s not worthy of it physically let alone as a decent human being. There isn’t a transplantation team in the world that would approve…unless there is a lot of cash involved. How disgusting.
Now that he’s got a heart, maybe he’ll learn how to use it and live in this wonderful world like a normal human being. It doesn’t take much, just a heart!
[This one was posted by a "HuffPost Community Moderator] “Cheney, 71, …has had a long history of heart trouble.” …understatement…
Yeah, there is no way in hell you would ever get a heart transplant with a medical history like his. Must be a 1% thing.
Something tells me that a younger, more vibrant person out there could have used a heart transplant more than this poor excuse of a human being. Giving it to a 71 year old tyrant who has done nothing but turn his country backwards seems to me that the Ethics Board of Organ Recipients has been greased with money quite adequately. How can a man of his age, history of poor health get a transplant?????? So much for integrity. I am ripping up my donor card. Money talks.
Wondering what comments the HuffPo didn’t print? Check out rawstory.com, which doesn’t filter comments (warning – graphic language):
Where did they find one small enough?
Almost makes me rethink my donor status on my driver’s license. I’d like the fine print to say use any organs except to help war criminals squeak out a few more years.
I’d wanna fucking kill myself if my organs went into a right winger let alone fuckin chainy!
Where did they find a heart black enough to be suitable for Cheney? Just hope it doesn’t last very long.
Wait…he had a heart?
What d’ya know? His FIRST heart. Imagine this asshole opened up and lying on the table when all of a sudden the doctor carrying the heart says “Oops!” then we hear a muffled splat. A beautiful sound that would have been indeed.
Oh SHIT !
pray for rejection
Boy, if I was the person who died and knew my heart went to Dickhead Cheney, I’d be pissed off .
That is a waste of a good heart. Die you miserable bitch, die.
straight out of a frankenstein house of horrors ….. EVIL lives again !! i’d wish for a staph infection …. but no bacteria will touch that thing.
Weak, immobilized and in pain is exactly where that asshole *should* be.
The clock is ticking on this evil prick who should be caged in a cell awaiting hanging. They will have to maintain 24/7 surveillance on his grave to prevent people from pissing and shitting on it. This monster fucked up the world for his own rotten greed. Car horns will be blowing all across the land when he finally takes his dirt nap. Worst American in my lifetime.
Unknown donor???? I wonder who’s heart they stole or diverted from someone more deserving of it.
Sheesh, how many people have to die to keep this POS alive, anyway?
Now, what was it you all you lefties were saying about how Rush Limbaugh needs to be taken off the air….?
