Get Well Soon, Bubba

Bill Clinton was hospitalized in New York City today for chest pains; a spokesperson later confirmed he has had two stents implanted in one of his coronary arteries. He is recovering from the procedure and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days.

Get well soon, Bubba.

As an aside, the above-linked article (which Shaker Blusilva sent to me under the amusing subject line "Bill Clinton v. DEATH!FAT") has since been updated, but originally read, in total:
Former President Bill Clinton, who is 63, was hospitalized in New York City today for chest pains.

Clinton was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. ABC News' chief political correspondent George Stephanopoulos reported that sources said he was taken to the hospital "likely for a stent procedure."

Clinton's wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was seen this afternoon leaving the Oval Office and did not seem "too concerned" or "in a rush."

Clinton, who has suffered from overweight often in his life, lost considerable poundage after his previous heart problem. The pain could come from a partial blockage of an artery and the stent would reopen the passage.
One of the edits included adding: "[Hillary Clinton] flew to New York City immediately this afternoon."

The media never tires of calling Bill Clinton fat and Hillary Clinton a soulless harpy.
