You mean Letterman? He'll be all solemn tonight.
He's done dozens of Cheney/heart jokes.
So have other so-called comedians. Here's just a few examples of what's out there:
"I don't know if you've heard the rumors George Bush may be dropping Dick Cheney. George Bush says he's going to give Cheney four more years. The bad news the doctor is only giving him two" Craig Kilborn"
"Cheney's temper got the best of him last week when he told Vermont Senator Pat Leahy to 'go F yourself' on the Senate floor. Wow that's so out of character. He seems like such a peach. ... Afterwards President Bush would not comment on Cheney's outburst adding, 'You think I want that psycho coming after me.' ... Dick Cheney does have a history of swearing, but usually he's clutching his chest and falling down." Craig Kilborn"
"Dick Cheney agreed to be President Bush's running mate once again in 2004. He made the announcement while riding in Ambulance One. In fact, he's got a new campaign slogan: No chest pain, no gain. ... He said he wanted four more years but his doctor is only giving him two." Jay Leno"
"Plans are being made to replace Dick Cheney if and when it ever becomes necessary. They have to plan for this kind of stuff, you know, Cheney had what, a stent, put in his artery to keep it open, had a defibrillator with batteries implanted in his chest. I think they've already started replacing him, piece by piece." Jay Leno"
"Earlier tonight, President George Bush delivered his first address before joint houses of Congress and I believe the speech went over pretty well. It was interrupted 97 times by applause, and it was interrupted three times by Dick Cheney's heart attacks. - David Letterman"
Transcript of Bill Mahar on Larry King Live:
"KING: We're moving on now. Very well said. Mr. Cheney. He's here, he's not here.
KING: What do you make of this, our sometimes absent vice president?
MAHER: I think he had another heart attack.
KING: Come on, Bill.
MAHER: But that's just a safe bet.
MAHER: I'm kidding. What?
KING: You got to say you're kidding about something like that, because that's...
MAHER: Because what? We didn't make 1,000 jokes about Dick Cheney having heart attacks before? What? You mean, Dick Cheney and a heart attack isn't funny now because of Osama bin Laden? I mean, come on.
KING: All right. No. But to presume someone had a heart attack, it's...
MAHER: Because we never see him! He's due. I mean, my God, it's been three months. No, I don't know. He's in an underground bunker. He's, you know, he's harder to find than bin Laden.
