Washington, D.C. - Vice President Cheney is expected to turn over Presidential authority to President Bush for his scheduled surgery to have his pacemaker battery replaced on Saturday. It will be the second time Bush will be in control of the nation since his last heart surgery in 2001. Understandability, he is nervous as are the rest of the world leaders.
Reportedly, Bush was reluctant to take on such responsibilities at first but when he was told he could whatever he wanted as President in this era of American history of unchecked balances of power, he warmed up to the idea rather quickly, retreating to his ranch in Texas to do some brainstorming.
He is expected to run the country from there, while cutting trees, riding horses and reading top level security documents of impending terrorist attacks once more.
Cheney has assured Bush that everything has been taken care of and that if anything important, or unexpected, like an emergency should arise, he has ordered Bush not to break the glass cover on anything marked, "Break in Case of Emergency" and press the shiny red button, no matter what!
Cheney is expected to resume his Presidential powers by Monday.
