Political illness

Poor old Dick Cheney. He was "rushed" to hospital last night suffering from a shortness of breath and fluid retention. This was caused as a side effect of medication he is taking for a foot problem.

I'm guessing alot of his "medical" problems could be psychosomatic. Not on his part, but on the part of the Republican party. The reason? A desire to improve the election prospects of Condoleezza Rice in 2008. Poor Dick, they even have him walking with a cane now. He may well see himself benched as Vice-President and replaced by Condi in the near future. I guess he'll have to go back to managing Halliburton full time then.
