Crawford, TX - President Bush took a nasty spill while biking on his ranch in Crawford, TX on Saturday. The President was shaken but needed no medical attention as all of the wounds were superficial. Bush himself blamed the rocky terrain but unidentified insiders riding with the President hinted he may have been chewing gum while riding this morning, something that has been strictly forbidden by his doctors.
When asked about the accident and the surrounding circumstances Bush declined to get into details, saying only, "I told you I wasn't going to get into details about what they asked me and then I just fell into your trap."
In a follow-up question, one reporter seemed to probe the President for information about any severe injuries, specifically to his head. Bush appeared testy and uncomfortable talking about the incident. Asked for information about any head trauma, Bush grew impatient, "If I answer questions every time you ask one, expectations would be high. And as you know, I like to keep expectations low. "
While Bush appeared to dodge the general question about any head injury he did go into a little detail about a few other medical problems he has had experience with. "I had my first 'scope', as we say in the business, I think maybe five or six years ago. They discovered polyps for the first time."
It was noted President Bush appeared to still be chewing gum during the interview.
With the incident behind him now Bush planned to use the rest of his weekend working on other things his agenda allows for. A noted wordsmith the President shared a few new nuggets of gold from his most recent session, "I've coined new words, like, ‘misunderstanding" and "Hispanically'."
