    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Dick Cheney was hospitalized for several hours early Monday at George Washington University Hospital after suffering shortness of breath, the White House said.

    The vice president left the hospital after about four hours, aides said.

    The problem is believed to be associated with medicine that Cheney is taking for a foot problem.

    "His doctors found that his EKG [electrocardiogram] was unchanged and determined that he was retaining fluid as a result of anti-inflammatory medication he has been taking for a foot problem," a statement from Cheney's office said.

    "They have placed him on a diuretic."

    Yeah right, his bile-spewing chamber was empty and needed to be refilled for a new round of smearing opponents!

    I used to be able to push the link button, it would prompt you for text, and then the link - it doesn't do that anymore.

    I usually type the text first, then highlight it and press the link button. Then paste the link in. But that's just me.

    You know, I was going to say that the title of this thread is kinda harsh. Even if it is Cheney. But he is in the hospital a lot. And if I said anything, I wouldn't be able to make a joke about God's wrath and Pat Robertson. Plus you're a Republican, so apparently it's ok for you to make fun of your own. I do wonder what would happen if Cheney kicked the bucket. VP Condi? Naw, someone used to tell a joke about not having an African American VP, because of how many people who would want the President dead (not that they don't already) just to have a black Pres. And a woman at that. That would be funny though. Not the assasination part (well), but the freaking out whitey. Plus I'm sure it will be all the liberals fault for giving Cheney a heart attack or whatever, even though we all know it'd be the hooker.

    Oh, went off on a tangent there. Ah, well, um... hope he gets better? My, uh... prayers will be with him? Yeah, m'kay.

    Welcome! You get to bash both sides now, and you don't have to defend the idiocy of anybody. Much more fun.

    I hope it's terminal.

    Or at least painful.
