    Default Cheney in Wheelchair

    Vice-President Cheney will be in a wheelchair for the Inauguration of Barack Obama.

    Washington Post Article
    Vice President Cheney will be in a wheelchair for tomorrow's inauguration ceremony, the White House said tonight, after he pulled a muscle in his back.
    Taken as an isolated incident, this would seem inconspicuous. However, I have reason to believe that the inauguration tomorrow is simply a ruse for all the politicos to dress up as their favorite presidents. Obama is already Lincoln. What next?

    Have you just been dumped?

    I ask because it's usually something like that which causes outbursts like this, needless to say I dissagree completely.

    I doubt Cheney likes FDR that much, but who knows.

    Maybe Obama can heal him...

    I'm just going to sit back and watch all the compassion, concern and caring the liberals will show about this...

    I was going to be caring until i heard it was just because of a muscle in his back... which i assumed healed fairly quickly... saying that i still wouldn't wish a wheelchair on anyone but if its just a week or something short its not so bad... anyway lets not discuss compassion for rival ideaologys politician pulling a muscle... because conservatives would never celebrate another politicians death.... right.. ?

    As understand it, he pulled a back muscle. That would not impair his mobility too much over short distances, but all those stairs and periods standing would be difficult.

    Why should we ? For all I care, Cheney can rot in hell, that's all the same to me.

    Note that I'm not a liberal, but I guess you just meant "leftist hippie"
