Choked on a pretzel, huh?

I think he fell down drunk...that the abrasion on his face was too obvious to conceal completely with make-up, and so they had to spin it. Then President Bush commented the next day on-camera that his glasses did that. Oops...wasn't 'sposed to say that, was he?...'sposed to just stick with the good ol' 'mother-said' jokes. Only a carpet-burn or table abrasion could produce an injury like that...and the force of a good fall...not a faint from a couch. Strickly a one-issue, non-partisan observation...but I do hope somebody else is holding the nuclear button

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man below. She descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his GPS. "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

"You must be a republican," said the balloonist. "I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help so far."

The man responded, "You must be a democrat." "I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault.

political shots go both ways.

Of course! Putting the spin on to conceal Presidential health and personal problems is a time-honored tradition! All parties equally guilty...and that includes the Whigs!

This is an argument about being right when you claim to be to the right of the extreme right, right?

Jeez, I just asked if anyone had seen Cheney! Innocent question enough, I supposed. And yes, if you keep turning right, right, right, or left, left, left you come full circle. If you do it fast, you are spinning. Then you get dizzy and fall down. I thought everybody knew that.

They did not tell, after all, what he used to wash down the pretzel... Nitroglycerol is still used for some heart conditions..

Why do I suspect it was more likely to be a large quantity of bourbon (or similar)?

I think he fell down drunk I so agree with you!!

Cross-threading to last week's theme of words from sports:

We used to take cheap shots at fellow ayleurs; I suppose it is a form of progress that we are now instead taking them at third parties. [bemused smile -e] Insofar as I can tell, however, there is reason (except idle speculation) to believe that "shots" of alcohol were involved.
