Sneaky Dicky

When you're the de facto leader of the free world, lugging a biochemical suit around just in case and changing your travel route so the Jackal can't get you might be a good idea.

Personally, I'd be more worried about that extra helping of salt crusted buffalo steak, especially after a bypass and a bad case of atherosclerosis.

By the way, how come we get full disclosure every time Bush gets a physical while Cheney's health condition is top secret?

As the The Carpetbagger Report noted:

I believe everyone, including Dick Cheney, is entitled to a degree of privacy regarding personal health issues, but this report is disconcerting. The VP helps run the country, and if he has a serious health condition that might impair his ability to govern, the public should probably know about it.

Let's also remember the context of all of this. The Bush White House will leak classified information about Iraq and undercover CIA agents, but the VP's physical condition is a closely-guarded secret.
