Dick Cheney refuses to answer questions as he leaves the Senate Republican policy luncheon - pics
WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 29: Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney (L) refuses to answer press questions as he leaves the Senate Republican policy luncheon with Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) (3rd L) at the U.S. Captiol November 29, 2011 in Washington, DC. The Senate Democratic and Republican caucuses met separately behind closed doors to discuss the annual $226 billion Defense Authorization legislation. The White House has threatened to veto the military spending bill over parts of the bill requiring that al-Qaeda members captured on US soil be held by the military and not civilian authorties. Senate Armed Services Committee ranking member Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said there was a robust debate on the detainee issue during the GOP luncheon, but Cheney did not join the discussion.

7. He plugs into a battery
That's the battery pack and the tubes route the power to his fake heart. It's pretty amazing technology for those who can afford it.

Edited on Tue Nov-29-11 05:03 PM by Bonhomme Richard
stay around.
It's probably because neither heaven nor hell wants to deal with him.

8. ya know, I thought about the same thing
concerning someone else. That God is making his health a nightmare, not enough hurt to die, not enough wellness to live fully, due to that person being an asshole of the nth degree.

It could happen, and only the good do die young. :shrug:

21. I've always assumed that God intended him to die at 37...
...his age when he had his first heart attack, but that God was taken by surprise by human medical advances.
I like your theory better.
I just wish the country wasn't suffering, too...

13. He wouldn't answer questions when he was on the public payroll
He sure as hell isn't going to answer any questions now, even though all that machinery keeping him alive is being provided at our expense, as well as lifetime protection by the Secret Service. And his pension(s). And his ongoing health care. Not to mention that sweet little $175,000 annual helping from the Treasury he voted for himself back in 2001 when the Bush tax cuts were first enacted.

A thoroughly loathesome and reprehensible human being.

29. yeah, wouldn't you think he would tuck it inside his clothing?
I wonder if he had a colostomy if he would wear the bag and tubes on the outside of his pants for us all to see.

Not that there's anything shameful about medical aids -- but most people keep such things private.

24. I hope they keep that mofo alive for years yet
whatever it takes, keep him alive. At some point if he lives long enough it'll hit him the damage done and the lost lives he's responsible for. I just know it has to at some point.

35. What is he doing there? The only reason he should be anywhere
near Congress is to answer questions about war crimes.

He looks as evil as he is. I guess after a while the poison inside shows on the outside.

Are cyborgs, vampires, and ghouls considered the 1%?
