President Bush Has Annual Physical ... In Oz

Munchkinland Official Posted by Hello

''(Doctors at Bethesda Naval Hospital) determined (Bush) is in superior health overall for a man his age,'' White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan said.

The White House put out a short letter signed by the 10 doctors who participated in the exam and planned to release further details late Saturday about what the team found. Buchan would not comment on any problems discovered during the exam, which lasted about three hours.

''I have interviewed and examined President George W. Bush and have reviewed his medical record,'' the doctors' statement said. ''Within the scope of my specialty, I find him to be fit for duty and have every reasonable expectation that he will remain fit for duty for the duration of his presidency.''


Sounds eerily like another medical pronouncement we all heard as children, from the Munchkinland Official in the Wizard of Oz, about the Wicked Witch of the West:

"As Coroner, I must aver,
I thoroughly examined her,
And she's not only MERELY dead,
She's really most SINCERELY dead."
