Cartoon slideshow: Dick Cheney's Heart

Brian Fairrington / PoliticalCartoons.com (click to launch our cartoon slideshow)

So Dick Cheney got a new heart... [Insert punch line here]. 

Some people are complaining that Cheney received special treatment due to his advance age. Others point to the four years he waited for the transplant as an argument against special treatment. The only facts we know are 3,100 Americans are currently waiting for a new heart, and about 330 die each year before one becomes available.

Cartoonists have their own thoughts. See what they think of Darth Vader's new ticker in our new Dick Cheney's Heart cartoon slideshow.
