Is Cheney's latest heart ailment a fraud -- and a set-up?

I have now read this in several places, and an idea which seemed at worst paranoid and at the very least cynical — now sounds quite plausible. Consider this:

Is Dick Cheney's recent heart ailment a fabrication by the White House in an effort to smooth the way for a Cheney resignation? And, would Cheney's replacement then run for President in 2008 with the strength that incumbency has historically proven to hold?


From BuzzFlash:
Before you dismiss this as speculation from a conspiracy nut whose tin-foil hat is on too tight, consider the fact that the Bush team created an elaborate and entirely false pretext for taking the country to war that snookered the corporate media and a majority of the public. Faking news of a heart ailment in order to quietly shuffle Cheney off the stage is child’s play by comparison.

I know that I am cynical but my first reaction when I read about this was - "Is HE going to resign?".
But then Bush would have NO brain left - except perhaps Kinda Sleezy..

Oh -- he'll always have Condi. She is so desperate to pull her role in the "legacy" of this Administration out of the toilet, she'll still be running dog and pony shows like the Annapolis conference on January 19, 2009.

By the way -- Thanks Denise!

I know there are lots of other folks reading, but I appreciate the feedback I get in the comments.

(hint hint, everyone else!)

"When a man's an empty kettle
He should be on his mettle
And yet I'm torn apart
Just because I'm presumin'
That I could be kind of human
If I only had a heart"

(thanks EH Harburg)

I thought it was paranoid, too but...

You're a monster, Mr. Grinch.
Your heart's an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You've got garlic in your soul.
Mr. Grinch.

I wouldn't touch you, with a
thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.

There are a myriad of ways this administration could manage to stay in power in some form or another after the 2008 elections, and this could be one of them. I just don't believe they are going to leave quietly, which is really scary.
