This Just In: Senate To Hold Hearings On President's Colonoscopy

(PIOOMA 7/26) Congressional Democrats have called for hearings to investigate  President Bush's polyp removals.  "The polyps were doing just fine, benign really, until Karl Rove stepped in," said Rep Henry Waxman (D-CA), head of the congressional Judicial committee.   "Something smells."
"These polyps were not removed for political reasons," argued press secretary, Tony Snow. "They were serving at the pleasure of the President until his doctor decided they were providing no pleasure at all."

"I would not put it past Rove to have his own polyps replace the President's because they would be more politically beneficial," said Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT). "We'll be looking into the President's colon and the procedure itself to see if there's any evidence of hanky-panky, or whatever the kids are calling it today."

In announcing that the White House would not let the President's Gastroenterologist, who performed the colonoscopy, nor the colon itself,to testify, Snow insisted, "the procedure was purely a medical decision to prevent any potential for cancer." 

"It's a little late for that," said former Nixon attorney, John Dean. "There is already a cancer growing on this Presidency."

Under contentious questioning from Senators yesterday, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez did not recall the President's colonoscopy


Steve Young, author of "Great Failures of the Extremely Successful" ( has had more than one colonoscopy and never needed to have any polyps removed, politically or otherwise. </em>
