While Dick Cheney was recovering from his heart transplant in the intensive care unit of Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va. Saturday, Twitter exploded with hate and ill wishes for the former vice president. (RELATED: Dick Cheney recovering after heart transplant surgery)
“Whoever donated their heart to dick cheney: fuck you,” tweeted @yokelesy.
“Cheney’s black soul keeps rotting out his heart. Fuck that bitch,” @SolidGlo waxed poetic.
“Why in the contumacious fuck are we wasting a perfectly good heart on dick cheney?” tweeted @mr_senor_pete
Another offered a different if similar perspective, expressing happiness for Cheney’s transplant — so that Cheney could one day meet his demise in a fire.
“I’m glad Cheney survived his heart transplant because I’ve always wanted him to die in a horrible fire,” @Jedimasterbator tweeted.
Others had suggestions for how to spend the rest of the evening.
It should be noted that Dick Cheney was on the transplant list for 20 months. The donor is unknown at this time. It will be said that Cheney “bought” his way through the list, but given his comments over the past several years about a possible transplant at his age, Cheney probably received this precious gift through the normal protocol procedures.
…… OK, Patdown…………….
Sen. Rand Paul told his communications director this morning he was being detained by TSA at the Nashville airport.
The Twitter account associated with Paul staffer Moira Bagley, @moirabagley, tweeted around 10 a.m., ET, “Just got a call from @senrandpaul. He’s currently being detained by TSA in Nashville.”
A TSA spokesman disputed that Paul was ever “detained.” But he was not granted access to the secure area of the airport when he tried to board a flight Monday morning.
The standoff was short-lived. By late morning, according to TSA, Paul had been booked on another flight and made it through the screening process.
Note: The Senator has since said that the TSA Agent “warned” him that if he attempted to “use his cellphone” they would give him the aforementioned patdown!
When Weiner (D-Queens, Brooklyn) was photographed by the Daily News fleeing the Capitol in his Nissan Pathfinder, it was clear the July 2007 registration sticker in his window was expired, and there was no inspection sticker to be seen. Weiner, through a staffer, said the 1988 Nissan Pathfinder was registered in New York State.
Not so, said the state Department of Motor Vehicles.
The New York license plate bolted on Weiner’s Pathfinder - US Congress 9 – had expired as of 2006, according to the DMV.
“That license plate should not be on a car,” a DMV spokeswoman said. It wasn’t even issued to the Pathfinder, but to another one of Weiner’s cars, a Honda, according to vehicle records.
As abuses of power go, this one is decidedly tamer than the scandal surrounding Weiner the last couple of weeks. Still, as one investigator told the NYDN, swapping plates is something one would normally expect of a criminal, not a member of Congress. Or is that a redundancy?
This new peek into Weiner’s approach to responsibility may lend itself less to double entendres and hilarious jokes, but it may also be more revealing. Until now, Weiner earned $174,000 in annual salary as a Congressman. His wife earns almost the same amount working for Hillary Clinton, putting their combined household income at a figure exceeding $325,000 per year. Weiner has agitated for higher taxes and more government regulation, but has apparently evaded his responsibility to pay for fees owed the state of New York for the last four years — even switching plates to save himself a few hundred dollars.

In the midst of tweeting about a hockey game and an appearance on the Rachel Maddow Show, NY Congressman Anthony Weiner “allegedly” tweeted an picture of himself in his “briefs”.
Throughout the weekend, “Weinergate” has continued to evolve, given that the “tweet” was meant as a private message for a 21-year old Seattle college student, who, according to her Facebook and Twitter, before she scrubbed it, was enamored with the Congressman (can we say “low self-esteem). While Weiner’s office says that his accounts were hacked, Weiner’s usage suggests differently. Furthermore, the Congressman’s office has not allegedly made reports to the FBI to have the matter pursued, despite tighter enforcement of attacks on politicians computer accounts.
In today’s segment of the saga, it appears that the Congressman tweets with a porn star and a teenager (yes…. allegedly). And all from his official @RepAnthonyWeiner twitter account. The picture(s) in question link to a “yFrog” account, which is also one of the Congressman’s accounts.
( One commenter notes that the picture actually looks like some middle-schooler…… which goes along with the Congressman’s persona , wouldn’t you say!)
Did we forget to mention that the Congressman has not yet celebrated his first wedding anniversary (July 10th). His wife, Huma Abedin, works for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton officiated at their wedding.
