Cheney Sneer: More Health Or Attitude Related?
My hub and I are discussing Cheney's permanent sneer. He thinks it must be the result of one of his health issues. But I understood that he had had heart problems, not strokes...I know lots of people who had heart attacks, and none of them end up looking mean.

I think his particular brand of ugliness is more attitude related, that he is a smug, heartless SOB and it kind of bubbles over into this awful, Grinch-like expression.

Hub thinks that although he IS an evil SOB, it is not his fault that he resembles a Dick Tracy villain, but rather the result of some kind of facial paralysis caused by a health trauma.

Who's right?

1. His history falls in line with your thesis.
Though, if he's in pain, that could exacerbate his grinchiness by making him even more cranky.

2. Totally attitude related, so I think you are correct.
His is so ugly on the inside, it shows on the outside. He is a dark, evil, uncaring human(?). It is hard to cover up those personality traits with a smile.

3. Naw, its more likely a spiritual malaise.
Kind of a Picture of Dorian Gray kind of thing. He will just not die, but will ugly away.
This troll, ogre is evil throughout.

4. yes, due to a facial paralysis, he now can talk -
only out of one side of his mouth instead of both.

5. The Gollum effect...
Refer to the Lord of the Rings... such huge amounts of evil will take its toll and transform your appearance into that of a monster.

6. The sneer is probably the "cause" of the heart attacks...
not the other way around. You know, the SOB attitude, meanness, etc., really takes a toll on the body.

7. Research has proven that
people who carry around a great deal of anger are high risk for heart disease.

Results of study at Duke University...Dr. Redmond Williams as I recall.

So there you have it: meanness predisposes cardiac disease.

9. My mom always said your personality comes out in your face as
you grow older. Nice people (like her) have kind faces - nasty old creeps like him look just how they are.

16. I'm Over 50, and Yeah, I Deserve My Mug!
Edited on Sat Jul-10-04 07:07 PM by Unperson 309
I've been told I look decades younger than my age. I do have that smiling sort of visage that tells little kids they needn't fear running up onto my lawn.

*sigh*

Where have I gone wrong?

17. You give more evidence that the saying is true.

I sometimes "try" to play mean....to the unabashed delight of those who know me and any stray children who happen to pass by.

10. he has an inorganic device in his heart
Edited on Sat Jul-10-04 11:43 AM by stellanoir
(pace maker) from rumored multiple mini strokes and heart attacks. I think it's both attitudinal and physical.

That's why, prior to his expletive deleted incident, I always thought of him as "Robo-heart", "Dipstick", or "Snear".

But now, he's just forever ensconced in my memory as "!@#$%^&*()".

15. There was an episode of The Twilight Zone
where a dying old man made the mean scumbags in his family wear masks for a day that were, in fact, reflective of their true personalities -- all ugly and twisted. When they took the masks off, their faces had become the masks -- all the ugliness within reflected on the outside. That's how it is with Cheney. Evil oozing from every pore. I often wonder what kind of kid he was. Had to have been the meanest bully on the schoolyard.
