Kerry team slams reports VP Cheney had a flu shot

Wed Oct 20, 9:02 PM ET


PITTSBURGH, United States (AFP) - Senator John Kerry (news - web sites)'s presidential campaign slammed Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites), a heart patient, over reports he had a flu shot, despite a shortage of the vaccine.

The campaign complained that Treasury Secretary John Snow and Senate Majority leader Bill Frist also had jabs, despite Bush's advice that the young and healthy did not need to get an injection.


"Once again, the Bush administration proves that it is the 'do as we say, not as we do' White House," the campaign said in a statement issued in Pittsburgh where Kerry was campaigning.


"The very week that (health) secretary (Tommy) Thompson is telling Americans to keep calm, Dick Cheney, John Snow and Bill Frist are getting flu shots."


"It is unfortunate that the Bush administration failed to do the work necessary to ensure that all Americans, including those most at risk, had been able to get shots as well."


Cheney would fit into the government's definition of those most vulnerable to a looming influenza epidemic as he has a long history of heart disease.


Bush last week suggested in the final presidential debate that the young and healthy forgo the annual shot amid a shortage of vaccine that Kerry has blamed on the president's management of the health system.


Uh, Cheney is old and has heart problems you dipshit! Kerry is such an ass, I can't believe that the election is even this close.

What does he know that the rest of you don't ....!

Frist needs the shot--he is a doctor and much more likely to come into contact with sick people. Not that the vaccine matters much.

You guys are so blind.

Cheney died 25 years ago. They brought him to the 250th basement level of the Pentagon and rebuilt him from the spare parts of various historical leaders and businessmen. Everytime he "has a heart attack" he's simply short-circuiting and needs a reboot.

Cheney DOESN'T need a flu shot. He's 85% inorganic.

Sorry, a liberal pawn is a liberal pawn. Kudos for his role as Superman, no one else could have done it like he did.

Just a joke anyway, my Godmother is forever handicapped from a head injury from a horse accident. Different injuries, but same empathy towards each.

What a dickhead. Horse faced fucker.

I wonder when somebody is going to point out that it's Clinton's fault for the vaccine shortages. Seriously. After all, wasn't it his administration that fealt the vaccine makers were profiting too much? Well, now we have to import it, and there isn't enough.

Kerry should have bee vaccinated for dumassitis.

I believe the actual statement from the Capital Physician was, and I quote:

"They have to shake hands, be around people, and hold babies n' shit"

We gotta keep Ted Kennedy healthy ya know!

Kerry and all of his staff can get flu shots if they want to. I have no problem with the vice president getting a flu shot even if he did not have heart problems. Kerry is just making me hate him more and more each day. Kerry has to be the stupidest person to ever run for president. He may be book smart, but he just keeps doing stupid things.

Teddy K is healthy, heis packed in Alcohol! I am 51 and meet the criteria for a shot, yet I work circles around the young guys. I guess sKerry doesn'tlike old folks....WTH is Therizzia? The old Socialsit!

I am too. I don't know how much more of their stupid shit I can take before I just flip the fuck out. Honestly, how fucking stupid can someone be? To make matters worse there are even people of lesser intelligence out there that think he should be president.
