I shouldn't stoop this low, but really the possibilities are too good to pass up. From the BBC:
President George W Bush is to have a 'routine colonoscopy' on Saturday. More soon.
I've had one of these procedures (being of a Certain Age). They pump several stiff drinks' worth of sedative into you -- you're awake but "feeling no pain", as they say. And you're not allowed to drive or run machinery for 24 hours after.
Hmm....didn't say anything about running a country. I wonder if we'll notice any difference?
Contest time: In comments, give your one-line reaction to that headline (mine is in the Title).
Prize for the funniest one: I'll buy you a drink next time we're in the same venue. (Astute readers will note that I can avoid paying out simply by picking a winner in, like, Australia or something).
(And now I'll find out who really reads this blog)
