Vice President Dick (Dick) Cheney has entered Walter Reed Army Hospital for treatment of an undisclosed illness. Doctors have been more circumspect than usual when discussing Mr. Cheney's condition, other than saying it was an elective, but definitely necessary, procedure. The Vice President is expected to remain hospitalized for at least the next two weeks but is expected to be healthy enough to operate the strings of the George Bush puppet during the 9/11 Commission Hearings.
Mrs. Cheney, when questioned about her husband's procedure smiled demurely and would only say, " I always loved my husband Dick (Dick) Cheney, and now, there's just more of him to love. A lot more.", then giggling like a school girl she skipped down the hospital corridor humming the Oscar Meyer Weiner song.
Wide eyed Nurses and Candy Strippers have been seen fighting over who would get to bring the Vice President his Jello. One Nurse was quoted as saying, "He can be my Vice president anytime."
