    Excellent!
    There is still hope that Cheney will be prosecuted for 'high crimes'..
    What is an appropriate penalty for starting an illegal war (lying to Congress, knowing use of false 'evidence', etc.) in order to start a war which killed more than 100,000 (most of whom were fully innocent)??
    I'm against the death penalty, but in Cheney's case, I wouldn't lose any sleep. Cheney, Saddam, Hitler... they all belong in Hell.

    Here's a thought to ponder.....IF I had as many heart problems as the former VP would I still have health insurance or would I have been dropped like a hot potato by now?

    Seriously?! Damn! Well, one can never give up hoping. Seriously though... was he "released" or tossed out? Probably just trying to save a few bucks. He's got to be hurting financially after the rig blew up. Well....... damn!

    The only Dick Cheney headlines I care to see are "Cheney Indicted", or "Cheney Dead".

    Is this a mental hospital or a medical one? My first assumption is a mental hospital, considering it's Cheney.

    This little stub fails to mention that they gave him a fresh infusion of Blood of Innocent Iraqi Children to keep his bionic heart pumping.

    He should be rotting in a jail cell.

    I would never wish death on anyone, but if there were ever a Dick who genuinely deserved it, he'd be the one.

    I hope he recovers well and is able to face war crimes charges in the Hague.

    I say put some hospital signs up outside a few prisons. Next time he checks in, don't let him out. This guy is the biggest threat to democracy since Tricky Dick. Funny how the worst of them come from the [R] party. It is THE reason I'm no longer a [R]. Conservative or liberal, who wants to be part of a party that not only harbors legally convictable crooks, but glorifies them and seeks to put them in leadership positions? The insanity involved in perpetuating this sad state of affairs on this country says all you need to know about today's[R]s.

    Yes hurry up and get better so you can prove how "transparent" the Republicans are for finally telling us what Energy and Oil industry executives you met with behind closed doors. No longer a reason to hide it right?

    And here I thought you liberals were suppose to be caring. Instead I get to marvel at all the hateful comments on this site.

    As for my two cents, I hope Dick Cheney does get better, and I would not wish illness or death on anyone, even those I venomously disagree with (Obama).

    Bummer. I guess a soul-less person can't actually die, their evil will just live on forever.

    Hurry up and DIE already. We're sick of looking at your sour face.
