Jamie reports on the inaugural ceremony:
US President George W. Bush will undergo a “routine colonoscopy” at the Camp David retreat on Saturday, temporarily ceding his powers to Vice President Dick Cheney, the White House said Friday. Cheney raised his hand and promised not to wipe out Muslims and promote Halliburton employees as a new Middle Eastern race of people.
Meanwhile readers of The Corner are breaking out the champagne:
Readers are really into Cheney being president for awhile. Suggestions for Acting President Cheney include
Commute the sentences of those border agents.
Fire Mike Chertoff.
Tell Harry Reid to … well, you know…
I wouldn’t mind seeing two and four being done tomorrow, but with pressure now even coming from the Democrats to have Compean and Ramos freed (an easy campaign issue winner), it’s going to happen before Bush leaves office – whether it be before or after his colonoscopy.
