Former Vice President Dick Cheney received a heart transplant today.
The $5 billion procedure was complicated by the amount of time Mr Cheney’s heart had been in cold storage and required Voodoo experts from Haiti to assist. Although some had counselled against re-introducing the organ, right wing republican officials felt it necessary if Mr Cheney was going to stand a chance of mounting a late challenge to Mitt Romney.
A hospital spokesman said that Mr. Cheney was making a remarkable recovery, was alert, chatting with his doctors, and shooting people as soon as their backs were turned.
Attention now turns to former President George W. Bush with surgery planned later this year to re-introduce his brain with many in the Bush camp claiming it’s already “Mission Accomplished”.
