Medical facilities across the United States are responding quickly to what could be called an epidemic by many.
“Some people – for some strange and inexplicable reason – are still listening to what Dick Cheney has to say, particularly his comments on Iraq,” said Dr. Milton Webb, a physician at a Minnesota facility.
The sudden outbreak surfaced after Cheney and his daughter Liz published an article in the Wall Street Journal, saying among other things that “rarely has a US president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many”, referring not to former president George W. Bush, but to President Barack Obama. And as a result of the article, the former vice president and dark lord is back in the media spotlight, doing interviews for news shows.
“This is the man who orchestrated a war that cost the lives of 4,500 Americans, 100,000 Iraqis and nearly a trillion dollars in debt. Only someone with serious mental problems would still be supportive of this person,” said one medical professional.
“If you know of someone who is under the delusion that Cheney and the rest of the Bush administration were justified in invading Iraq in 2003, please make sure that you get them help as soon as possible.”
Medical facilities are requiring that, prior to admission of patients, loved ones should prevent them from watching Fox News and CNN, encourage thinking for themselves, and of course, reconsidering their political affiliations as conservatives.
“But we can only help if they want us to help,” added Dr. Webb. “Let the healing begin.”
