Cheney suffered mild heart attack

(AP)

Family members say former Vice President Dick Cheney suffered a “mild” heart attack earlier this week.

Cheney was hospitalized Monday with chest pains — the latest in several trips to the hospital in what has been a long, protracted battle with heart disease.

Lab tests at George Washington University Hospital revealed Tuesday Cheney had, indeed, suffered a heart attack — his fifth since he was 37.

“The whole family has been working with heart disease for decades,” political consultant Mary Matalin told The Associated Press. “They are vigilant and attuned to treatment.”

Matalin said the 69-year-old Cheney “knows how to live” with his heart condition.

    Matlin’s trying to make excuses for Phallus. Phallus was notorious for eating like a pig and he mended his ways a bit but he’s back to eating those Big Macs again.

    Hell, he ain’t got nothing to worry about. The devil doesn’t want him, and he sure ain’t going to heaven, so we are going to have to put up with this pos for a long time.
