Nemo's Brother: If only Cheney were more like Che, Castro, Stalin or Mao. Then he'd be loved by every TFer.

I would have used Hitler, Moussolini, Batista, or margaret Thatcher... seeing how all of FARK is a conservative hotbed.

They died before automatic implantable defibrillators, state-of-the-art pacemakers, modern cardiac procedures and new heart medications were invented. Heart disease survival is a different ballgame now.


yes, but what about cancer. I've heard that there's still no cure for it.

WorldCitizen: His death would probably create sympathy and help McCain. Perhaps McCain is hiding behind doors and jumping out in surprise at Cheney.

wouldn't that be a double fatality?

McCain: "Surprise!"
Cheney: "GACK!"
McCain: "Hehe-GACK!"

right, because we're the ones who ruined the economy, our military, and our diplomatic standing over the past 8 years... right. You keep thinking that, buddy.


Republicans did not ruin our economy. Number one, it is not ruined. Our military is as strong as ever. Our diplomatic ties are as strong as ever. Where do you get this shiat?

Oh ya, you are a liberal, which means you don't think, you just repeat what the Democratic party tells you to.

mloree: lhclubs: gspazg: ucfknights: Wow, a 68 yr old man having heart troubles. Good thing nobody wants to put a 72 yr old man into the White House with an utterly unqualified candidate.

No they want to put an utterly unqualified candidate in office with a 65 year old man.

/Wow---sarcasm can work both ways!


John McCain is 72 and his mother is 96.

Barack Obama is 47 and the average lifespan of an African-American is 65.

That means that John McCain probably has about another 24 years to live. Obama, more like 18. So, they'll both probably be OK for 4-8 years.

you, sir are an idiot.

1)when looking at life expectancy one needs to take into account the year of birth, not simply their chronological age (why comparing John to his mother is the height of idiocy)
2)the lifespan of one's mother has no correlation to one's life expectancy whatsoever
3)The life expectancy for a 72 year old man today (white or otherwise) is certainly NOT 24 more years. It's more like -2.

Leave health demographics to the professionals.

KTHNXBAI


I cant follow this logic either. His father died at 70 and his grandfather died at 61. Don't those factor in to the numbers somewhere? Life expectancy is going up, but wouldn't that be for people who can expect to reach 72+, not people who are already 72?

lilbjorn: The Speaker becomes next in line, but is not promoted to VP.

Couldn't they appoint her, though? I mean, she could be President temporarily if the election gets really farked up and they can't resolve it by Jan. 20th ... is there a mechanism that could prevent such a promotion?

How long has the country ever gone without a VP? I know a few have died or resigned, and replacements had to be appointed, and it's 90+ days from Inauguration.

Well, if we counted age the way Japan did, we would be all okay. As I understand it (don't know if they still do thanks to Christianity) but Japan counts the day of your birth as your first birthday. You are one, not zero. What we would count as your first birthday is the second birthday for them.

In essence:

Us - Count time outside of the womb
Them - Count birthdays as years. Moment of creation on.

Haha, you really believe that? Who was murdered? Who is warmongering? Oh you mean freeing millions of people from rape, torture, and execution? Bigotry? Where is any bigotry?

That scene is playing in my head... McCain yells "Boogedy!" Cheney's clutching his heart and giving McCain his "I'm going to shoot you in the face" sneer, then the corner of his mouth turns up while McCain gives him a hearty Jesus thumbs up, and they decide they need some privacy, and... oh god, it won't stop.

You already gave me Tom Brady out for the year, God. Come on. One more. Make Cheney have a grabber and keel over. Please.


So we should only pray that Mooslims and abortion Dr's die? I lost my republican prayer book.

Dear Quetzalcoatl,
Pretty please let Mr Cheney have as many healthy years as all the men he sent to die in Iraq.

/get off my lawn


life expectancy is calculated for birth cohorts, meaning that the longevity of his parents is a poor indicator. Also, a probability of death can be calculated based on your birth cohort and your current age (adjusting for survivng childhood, adolescence, etc). The fact that he survived to 72 actually helps his life expectency numbers a bit, but the life expectency of men born in 1936 is well below 72, meaning he's a ticking time bomb.

SynthLord: lilbjorn: The October surprise? How does this help them?

- Cheney resigns for health reasons
- Not enough time left in term to vet & install a new VP
- Pelosi is expediently promoted to VP, removing her as Speaker
- Not enough time before elections to vet & install a new Speaker
- Dem leadership weakened, Rep leadership pushes House Reps
- Veto power if Obama elected, rubber-stamp power if McCain elected

/don't really know how all this stuff works at that level


Yeah... that's not really how it would happen. Bush gets to nominate the Vice President and it has to be approved by both houses of Congress. It would not be likely that they would force him to choose a Democrat in the event of Cheney's inability to finish the very short remainder of his term.

Well, with the obvious difference that Cheney has been in charge of farking up the country for the last 8 years, and Obama has done nothing as President yet.

But I'm sure you factored that into your whaaambulance call.

So, let me get this straight, it's bad if McCain speaks and people in the audience are shouting 'kill him', 'he's a terrorist!' because McCain is whipping up hatred and eeeevul rednecks....
but it's OK, even funny, to wish death for the VP in here cuz he's not part of the socialist collective. Got it.....
