Bush Medical Statement White House press secretary Ari Fleischer's statement Saturday after President Bush's colonoscopy: President Bush this morning underwent a colorectal screening procedure at Camp David in which no polyps were found and no evidence of any abnormalities was discovered. At 7:09 a.m. (EDT), Article XXV of the Constitution was invoked, temporarily transferring the power of the presidency to Vice President Dick Cheney. At that time, anesthesia was administered to the President. The procedure was concluded at 7:29 a.m. and the president awoke at 7:31 a.m. The power of the presidency was returned to President Bush at 9:24 a.m. The president says he feels ``great'' and will resume his normal routine at Camp David. © Copyright The Associated Press.

It really freaks me out that this event is/was the headline news item on every cable and network news source. It's totally common for people over age 50 to have this kind of screening every 2-3 years, and to have it make these kind of headlines really makes me wonder about the sanity of the broadcast news industry. Who the hell do they think cares? Now, if the test had shown up with some sort cancerous polyps, then I could understand making a news item out of it. But telling me that he had a noncancerous polyps three years ago, and none now----I'm sorry, I don't care.

I still debate wether we really needed to know such a personal tidbit about GW's colon. Keving67

Yeah, I'd rather not know about presidential colon exams. But it was worse when Reagan had colon cancer. Remember that? Turning on the tv and having special reports about the First Colon, along with helpful graphics to show you what Reagan's colon looks like.

Is it such a lousy news day that we are all concerned about what is in the Presidents ass? This is not exciting as to what is in old Slick Willie's!

Well, if they hadn't announced it and something happened while Cheney was in charge, there would have been cries of some kind of conspiracy by the same ones complaining that this is newsworthy.
