Mary Katharine Ham writes that 78-year-old Harry Whittington, Vice President Cheney’s hunting partner, suffered a minor heart attack today:
It was what they call an asymptomatic heart attack, meaning he suffered no, um, symptoms. No chest pain, no arm pain. He’s conscious and talking to folks.
Good to hear.
Update: Was Paul Begala’s appearance on CNN where he dressed up as another Floyd R. Turbo/Dana Milbank clone recorded today? Was it recorded after news broke of Whittington’s heart attack? Truly classy stuff, by both Begala and CNN (who allowed him to go on the air in that getup), regardless.
Another Update: Ian Schwartz responds, in the same post linked to above:
Indeed it was. Begala appeared on CNN
