(AP) Surviving 5 heart attacks makes Cheney unusual, showing that he has good medical care as well as a particularly aggressive form of heart disease.
CHENEY walks taller now in a District
that has long known him all too well,
from White House to GWU Hospital.
He’s ‘He Who Walks Tall,’
taller than all of his enemies,
taller than his breaking wave of well-wishers,
admiring his ability to navigate political currents
as political sharks drift lazily down every street,
intent on drawing political blood daily.
Once again, Cheney’s the day’s top story,
thanks to his heart. Thanks to his heart;
thanks to his heart. “Thank you, heart,”
he prays as he falls to his knees again.
