The saga of Dick Cheney's alleged EKG continues this week with an item in the New York Daily News -- the only place to get real political news these days. Arianna Huffington got the ball rolling last Friday with an entry on Huffington Post suggesting that the good VP had sneaked into a hospital in Vail to get his ticker checked out. Cheney apparently went to great lengths to hide the alleged test, using the name of his own doctor instead of his own.
Hardly the kind of information that will bring down presidencies, yet it provoked a firestorm of denials and anonymous counter-denials, followed by highly public counter counter-denials. The good/bad news: all sides agree that the man is healthy as a horse. [Attytood via Eschaton]
