Amazing: after suffering his fifth heart attack, our former vice president is feeling good and expected to be discharged from the hospital in a day or two. Cheney is definitely going to be around forever; come 2100 his head will be floating in a tank of formaldehyde, barking out orders. From CNN:
Monday’s heart attack was Cheney’s fifth. The first occurred in 1978, when he was 37. He suffered his second in 1984 and his third in 1988 before undergoing quadruple bypass surgery to unblock his arteries. His fourth heart attack occurred in November 2000, after he became vice president. At that time, doctors inserted a stent to open an artery.
Doctors in 2001 implanted a device to track and control his heart rhythm. In 2008, he underwent a procedure to restore his heart to a normal rhythm.
