Harry Whittington suffered mild heart attack this morning

... most likely due to complications from being shot by Dick Cheney.

"Some of the birdshot appears to have moved and lodged into part of his heart in what we would say is a minor heart attack," Peter Banko, administrator at Christus Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-Memorial in Texas, said at a press conference outside the hospital.

There was an irregularity in the heartbeat caused by a pellet, and doctors performed a cardiac catheterization, Banko said.

All joking aside, have a speedy recovery Harry.

UPDATE: Ace of course makes the connection... VP shoots a guy and the Dow soars 113 points. Hopefully we don't need to do any further testing on this theory...
