I hope they poked around a lot just in case the Iraqi WMDs were in there somewhere
 
2013-08-06 09:44:13 AM  
Woah!


W has a heart?

Damnitsomuch beat me to it.

I feel fairly confident that it wouldn't be Mr. Itchy McTriggerfinger's first confirmed kill.

Cheney's tracking device.

It's the remnant of a conscience floating around.

Even if he manages to survive Obamacare, the drone strikes on American citizens will be sure to finish the job.

In before Dick and Bush jokes...too late...
 
2013-08-06 09:46:14 AM  
So they found a blockage and performed the operation within a few hours? What health insurance does he have because it sounds pretty good. I wonder what his copay is.
 
2013-08-06 09:46:22 AM  
Worked his way up from the colon?
 
2013-08-06 09:46:26 AM  
Well that explains everything!

/Haha

Just a lump of coal that was left over apparently.
 
2013-08-06 09:46:58 AM  
Well. This thread is going to be civil.
 
2013-08-06 09:47:14 AM  
Wait, George W. Bush is still alive?
 
2013-08-06 09:47:31 AM  
From the same page as TFA:


Former US President George W. Bush expected to return home tomorrow; procedure performed without complication - statement via @NBCNews


So... not much actually happened. For this we have a 'news flash'?

plcow: or a pretzel maybe?


Were they making him thirsty?

In before the first Ann Coulter fan says, "Stay classy libs."

Will the doctors raise a banner after the surgery saying 'Mission Accomplished?' Meanwhile, there will be years of complications, setbacks and opening old wounds before the eventual withdrawal of said blockage.

Carth: So they found a blockage and performed the operation within a few hours? What health insurance does he have because it sounds pretty good. I wonder what his copay is.


The same as the current president, and the president that came before him.
 
2013-08-06 09:50:28 AM  
I wish him a long and happy life and am glad he's not the POTUS anymore.
 
2013-08-06 09:51:26 AM  
Heart? Empty.

Head to match.
 
2013-08-06 09:51:59 AM  
he was in pretty good shape, too.  not the first one you would expect that needs heart surgery to remove a blockage.
 
2013-08-06 09:53:07 AM  
Non-story; over-zealous platelets.
 
2013-08-06 09:53:11 AM  
I was going to write something snarky, but I just don't care enough. I'm just glad we survived him (barely).

R.A.Danny: I wish him a long and happy life and am glad he's not the POTUS anymore.


I just hope The Hague gets a hold of him and a few of his Hitler Youth before they all croak.

Funny how none of them ever committed suicide. I guess you have to have a conscious to do something really stupid.
 
2013-08-06 09:53:59 AM  
Hope he's okay. I hated him as a president, but, you know, not wishing an unpleasant death on him. I'm not a Fark Libertarian (see: townhall shooting thread).
 
2013-08-06 09:54:05 AM  
For someone I disliked so much when he was president, he's been truly a class act as former president. Best wishes to him on a full recovery.

SlothB77: he was in pretty good shape, too.  not the first one you would expect that needs heart surgery to remove a blockage.


Probably the job stress eventually takes it toll. Clinton was in pretty good shape when he had his heart problems.

As commander in chief I think we should let them all use VA benefits.

Gotta count on Fark to green light something like that.  Anything that has to do with negativity of
GW or Cheney is pushed first.

Cheney is delighted to be receiving the heart after already having possession of the brain.

R.A.Danny: I wish him a long and happy life and am glad he's not the POTUS anymore.


This.
 
2013-08-06 09:55:53 AM  
I swore he developed a heart once he left office, so I have no ill feeling...
/now, if Cheney were to develop blockages...

Yes you are

When the doctors discovered the heart blockage, they immediately scheduled liver replacement. Unfortunately, that will lead to years and years throwing away money at a problem he caused while ignoring the actual issue. After realizing his new liver is shot as well, he'll drink a surge soda and hope for the best with his heart.

At the end of the day, he'll have a destroyed liver, a blocked heart, and a million dead Iraqis.

wait

Good lord...that thread did escalate quickly, didn't it?
 
2013-08-06 09:57:19 AM  
If the blockage is in his heart, naturally, operating on the spleen is the best idea.

You go into the surgery with the doctors you have, and not the doctors you wish you had.

Let's be real, they kind of deserve it.

wait what

Do I get to add that to the list of political ideologies people have told me I am? I think I have Bingo.

So he's getting a stint?  My dad had one of those.  Grandma had 5 15 years ago.  Not that you'd realize that when someone you love is going through it, but it's really not that big of a deal.

I believe it's called 1% Healthcare.

I read the headline as "possibly Dick Cheese".
 
2013-08-06 10:00:22 AM  
Hopefully, the surgeons have a good strategery in place to treat the problem.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Hopefully, the surgeons have a good strategery in place to treat the problem.


It's okay. Block me once, stent on you. Block me twice... block.. can't get blocked again.

Came here to say this.  Talk about burying the headline.

"Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity"

It's hard to hate W, the guy was dumb enough to think he was doing the right thing. Shiatty president but not an especially shiatty human being.

Cheney, though, is a cancer and when he gets to hell they'll be selling tickets to kick him in the balls for eternity.
