Cheney should be dropped for 2021. Not a good pick 


He did have several heart attacks.

I say he’s a good pick.

Most of them were a very long time ago

More importantly, his five heart attacks preceded his heart failure and consequent heart transplant in 2012, so all that ischaemic damage to his old heart doesn't apply any more. The median life expectancy for a man post heart transplant is about 10 years, so he may be running up against the limits of what the transplant can do for him at some point, and he also has had issues with blood clots elsewhere, particularly his legs, in the past... But it's no guarantee he'll drop soon.

Do you think he and Dubya stay in touch? 

The real question is whether he is in any of Dubya's paintings. I'm just imagining a painting of them two riding on a nuke dressed as cowboys.

Never trust statistics (is what my old statistics professor used to say).

If he gets COVID he will most likely die.Also he had a heart transplant nearly a decade ago.Odds on lasting 10 years after transplant until 2022 is statistically 50%.

A good title for him when he kicks the bucket.


Limp Dick.
