Skip to comments.CNN's Don Lemon & Dana Bash - rude comments made about McCain's "72-year-old heart"
Posted on 08/30/2008 8:27:26 AM PDT by SilvieWaldorfMD
I just saw this on CNN five minutes ago.... Don Lemon telling Dana Bash that Sarah Palin is "a heartbeat away from the Presidency, and that's a 72-year-old heart!", to which Dana agreed and went on to say that Palin's executive experience for the past 13 years includes "a year and a half in the Gvernor's mansion and the rest as mayor of a small town in Alaska!" (emphasis made by her on the words "small town" and "Alaska").
This MSM 'meltdown' is so blatantly obvious........
(Excerpt) Read more at cnn.com ...
I know of men and women with 72-year-old strong hearts..... this is ridiculous.... the American Heart Association should put out a statement..... this comment discriminates against older folks and senior citizens.....
More sexually based assault on the person of Ms Palin by the Lefts attack misogynists.
Biden Healthy, But at Increased Risk for Aneurysm, Doctor Says
Monday, August 25, 2008
By Jessica Ryen Doyle
F CNN nobody cares what they say or the rest of the media, Nov 4 they will wonder why they were so wrong, again.
Yes, that’s my point, Tor.
ANYONE is at a risk of death — whether by an aneurysm (may my sister-in-law R.I.P. She died suddenly of a brain aneurysm at age 49 last summer), or due to an airplane crash or being hit by a Mack truck.
We know when we are going to be born, but we do not know when we are going to die.
This is VEEEERRRYYYY INNNNTERESTING!
I wouldn't be surprised if all of a sudden Joe Biden "is not feeling well" and decides to "drop out of the ticket" so that Obama can put a woman or someone else in the VP slot.... far-fetched but doable, no?
Sarah Palin appears to have a heart of gold
I love the left. How about we kick all the old liberal farts off of the Supreme Court, and out of the house and senate (looking at you Kennedy and Byrd).
They need to apologize.
Yea, how old is Breyer and Stephens? The combined age of their hearts must be over 150+ years of age....
Byrd’s heart — well, I don’t even want to go there.
Does he still have one?
"Dick Cheney's had four heart attacks and he's still with us. McCain doesn't even have a weak heart, so he isn't going to suddenly keel over and die."
Not my finest moment, but it shut her up.
Dear dems, don’t worry about the president’s heart. We have a great back-up.
I’ll have to remember that line for when I have my “run-ins” with other moms at our local grocery store....
This from a party who has Nancy Pelosi a couple of heartbeats from the presidency!
Palin can do this!
Our problem right now is that we have a "mutinous Congress" and the crew refuses to "do their duty".
I am so sorry to hear of your SIL's untimely death.
Yes, brain aneurysms are not reserved for the elderly. One of my friends dropped dead of a brain aneurysm at her 36th birthday party, and another relative had one at age 44.
If God forbid McCain would drop dead during the term, Palin would be the President...Would Pelosi be the Vice President?
Now that is very scary...
Don Lemon telling Dana Bash that Sarah Palin is “a heartbeat away from the Presidency, and that’s a 72-year-old heart!”, to which Dana agreed and went on to say that Palin’s executive experience for the past 13 years includes “a year and a half in the Gvernor’s mansion and the rest as mayor of a small town in Alaska!” (emphasis made by her on the words “small town” and “Alaska”).
U.S. Representative, Heather Wilson, On The Selection Of Gov. Sarah Palin
Heather: You know, Governor Palin has more executive experience than Senator Obama, Senator Biden, and Senator Schumer combined because those guys have never run anything. So I find that quite amusing.
I was very disappointed with Senator Obamas choice of a running-mate. He chose somebody else whos a Washington insider from the East Coast who knows nothing about the west and Senator McCain surely does. Im also very pleased that hes chosen as his vice president, the chief executive of the oil producing state in America, strong energy credentials and the energy issue is very important to Americans.
Bravo Zulu Heather! Sarah Palin has more executive experience than Snowbami, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Boxer and most of the rats in congress combined.
Is it working? Check these poll results:
McCain shaves Obama Biden 4 Points on Palin Pick: Rasmussen

Looking at the latest numbers at Real Clear Politics here:
You can see that McCain shaved 4 points off Obama’s bounce.
“They need to apologize.”
Elect John and Sarah and toss out the Pelosi 9% congress.
LOL.....after Nixon resigned a new VP was appointed......and I wonder just WHO Palin would pick? certainly a conservative!
No. Palin would appoint someone. IIRC, this is how we got Nelson Rockefeller in the vice presidency, when vp Gerald Ford ascended to POTUS after Nixon's resignation.
Thanks for the info, Gramps!
I actually don't see what is so rude about that statement. Almost the exact same thing was said at my small group meeting last night and most agreed. BTW we are all Republicans and most are over 72.
One only has to look at McCain’s great looking wife to know he doesn’t have a bad heart or it would have already gotten him. A problem no doubt Obama will never face!
But the Cheney line is great for "hit-and-run" shut-em-up-get-out situations.
This is something I’ve been wondering about a lot lately: The MSM has made it perfectly clear that in their opinion, being old is as good as being dead. Will this piss off enough seniors to put McCain over the top?
Dana Bash, AKA “the Blinker” (she beats Pelosi on this) is two faced - a far-out liberal on any CNN show except Lou Dobbs, where she reigns in her liberalism a bit.
It couldn't hurt.
SMALL MINDS CAUSE MORE HEADACHES!!!
Aren't they teaching anything in schools anymore?
No mention of Biden’s 65 year-old brain, or lack there of.
LOL. McCain is such a mean old guy, escaped death numerous times. Don’t kid yourselves Dems that he is going to die before he is POTUS for as long as he chooses. This is his destiny for what he did for his faith and his country.
Hopefully all of the state of Florida hears this. Stand by AARP.
Well, you do have to deal with the age factor but:
Obama only released a one page medical summary with few details.
McCain released his records.
Thanks to the PUMAs for keeping track of all this!
Is he still alive or do they just prop him up to appear that way?
Aren’t they teaching anything in schools anymore?
No. I guess not. I learn more from you and other FRiends than I ever did in school. The only reason I asked that apparent horrible question is that I keep hearing that Pelosi is third in line of the Presidency...so third in line sounds logical.
Cocaine use is also bad for the heart, right Bambi?
