Oh dear.

Vice President Dick Cheney will serve as acting president briefly Saturday while President Bush is anesthetized for a routine colonoscopy, White House spokesman Tony Snow said Friday.

    Also from the article:

    “The president wants to encourage everybody to use surveillance,” Snow said.

    I’m sure he does.

    Maybe while they’re up in his ass they can also do a dental exam.

    My favorite comment from the Lone Star Times, a generally bizarro-clusterflock conservative-wienie blog:

    “Maybe if the Congress hurries, they can have the doctor serve a subpoena to Rove while they’re in there.”

    That one was an exception. The majority of commenters thought having Cheney in charge was a pretty good idea. There are some real fun-loving fascist asshats on that site.

    “Asshat” what a great word. I am always amused by it.

    Briefly? I thought he was calling the shots for the last 7 years?
