Spokesman says that he will temporarily transfer power to Cheney
WASHINGTON - President Bush will undergo a routine colonoscopy Saturday, his spokesman said, revealing that Bush will hand over presidential powers to Vice President Dick Cheney while he is under under anesthesia.
White House press secretary Tony Snow told reporters that Bush would have the procedure at his Camp David, Md., mountaintop retreat.
Oh hell no! Transfer of power over a colonoscopy? This is not needed for this type of procedure.
According to wikipedia:
"On average, the procedure takes 20-30 minutes, depending on the indication and findings. "
"This procedure has a low (0.2%) risk of serious complications"
"On July 20, 2007, it was reported that U.S. president George W. Bush will have a colonoscopy and temporarily transfer power to vice president Dick Cheney."
Cheney had better sit in his office and keep his hands to himself till America's dictator gets through with this simple procedure.
Brace yourself people, this could be it.
