Cheney to be President!!!!

...for two and a half hours that is.

Do we prepare for Armageddon?




WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Bush will undergo a routine colonoscopy Saturday, and will transfer power to Vice President Dick Cheney during the procedure, expected to take about two and a half hours, the chief White House spokesman said.

Tony Snow said Friday that the procedure, during which a doctor looks for any signs of cancer, will be carried out at Camp David, Maryland, and the president will be placed under anesthesia.

I'm waiting for witty and all I get is petty.

You guys can do better, I would hope.

Just keep Cheney away from the big red button on the President's desk. It's not the Staples easy button you know.

That seems like a long time for a routine colonoscopy. It shouldn't take more than 1 hour including coming out of the sedation.

Well, there's coming out of sedation and coming out of sedation. You have to have someone else drive you home, and they tell you not to drive for a few hours. How long before they would trust you with the key to launching 7000 nuclear weapons?

I dunno... maybe once the surgeon gets his hand up there, he can't pull out until the President declares victory???
