Darth taken to the hospital
The AP and CNN are reporting (no story up yet) that Dark Lord Sith and VP Dick Cheney has been taken to George Washington University Hospital “suffering shortness of breath.” Guess they couldn’t hide it this time, so it must be bad. Flip the defibrillator, folks.
UPDATE (7AM): Just fluid build-up because of a foot problem, they say.
Vice President Dick Cheney was taken to George Washington Hospital early Monday experiencing shortness of breath, a spokeswoman said.
Lea Anne McBride said that doctors found his EKG unchanged and determined he was retaining fluid because of medication he was taking because of a foot problem.
Cheney, who has a long history of heart problems and has a pacemaker in his chest, was placed on a diuretic.
