Here's a way to save taxpayers some money: limit heart transplants to people less than 70 years old. And let's not forget, were it not for Medicare, a certain former veep, the contents of whose chest have long been in question (and not just in terms of coronary circulation), would never have had a transplant paid for, since he'd have lost his private insurance when he had his first heart attack over thirty years ago.

Thankfully, depending on one's view of extraordinary measures, a person who has a heart attack nowadays -- assuming the Rs don't succeed in ending the ACA -- would retain coverage for future heart ailments.


  1. Ah, but Dick is a multimillionaire so he would always be able to get a heart transplant. Also, how Steve Jobs got his liver.

  2. Sid,
    even with your terminal seasonal affective disorder, this is beneath even my admittedly vile standards...
    I mean, when Ted Kennedy got his Brain Tumor did I poke fun, make Mary Joe Kopeckney remarks, start a "Ted Kennedy Countdown Clock" on my Blog?
    Oh yeah I did, sorry.
    And you know what's really gonna piss you off?
    When Dick Chaney's made Sec Def in a Romney Cabinet...


  3. Transplant? Wouldn't "implant" be a more correct term?

  4. Yes, as through this world I've wandered I've seen lots of funny men;
    Some will rob you with a six-gun,
    And some with a fountain pen.

    And as through your life you travel,
    Yes, as through your life you roam,
    You won't never see an outlaw
    Drive a family from their home.
