Tomorrow Dubya will have a colonoscopy (insert joke here) during which he will temporarily transfer power to Vice President Cheney (insert joke here) as Dubya will be under anesthesia while doctors probe him (insert joke here.) Section 3 of the 25th amendment provides for the temporary transer of power in the event of the disability of the president (INSERT JOKE HERE).
Bush transferred power to Cheney during his last colonoscopy in 2002. Cheney will be in charge of the country for about 2.5 hours. I’d like to be under anesthesia myself during that time. Being awake will be too terrifying.
