Cheney has had four heart attacks, quadruple bypass surgery and two angioplasties to clear his clogged arteries.

Doctors, Long said, are “evaluating” Cheney’s condition.

Doug Thompson published his first story and photo at age 11 -- a newspaper article about racism and the Klan in Prince Edward County, VA, in 1958. From that point on, he decided to become a newspaperman and did just that -- reporting news and taking photos full-time at his hometown paper, becoming the youngest full-time reporter at The Roanoke Times in Virginia in 1965 and spent most of the past 55+ years covering news around the country and the globe. After a short sabbatical as a political operative in Washington in the 1980s, he returned to the news profession in 1992. Today, he is a contract reporter/photojournalist for BHMedia and owns Capitol Hill Blue and other news websites.


  1. Klaus, you are absolutely right! Everything he says about President Obama came right out of the PNAC policies. The only difference is that our current President is a Democrat. How can it work for one and not the other? This new announcement that Liberal Progressives are the enemy of all Americans. The Conservatives have broken our financial backs while claiming they are the true Patriots. One can break all the laws of family values and learn how to beg for forgiveness to succeed. I don’t see V.P. Cheney begging a mea culpa as he seems to think he is the perfect American patriot. How many deferments did he receive during the days of war service? That had to have been tough…Maybe his aches and pains come from his guilt.

  2. I wish Phallus Cheney a speedy flight to Cloud 9 -but I’m sure he’ll be smiling as he knows that O-Bomb-Uh is continuing the Smirk Administrations PNAC policies.
