For about two hours today, the scariest thing imaginable happened – Dick Cheney was President. Invoking the 25th Amendment (which all you West-Wingers will remember as the thing that made John Goodman POTUS – don’t we wish!), Bush transferred the powers of his office to the Dick at 7:16 am today. This “abundance of caution” was due to five polyps Bush had removed from his colon. Ouch. He has since taken said powers back, and is happily playing with his pooches at Camp David. Apparently, the President can go away for a few hours, and no one in the country even notices. Luckily, the Dick didn’t seem to have anything to do.
