(Washington) - Doctors and psychiatrists at Walter Reed Medical Center have examined all 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, all 100 Senators, and the President of the United States and have diagnosed every one of them as having severe Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

In layman's terms this means that America's top political leaders in Washington are incapable of concentrating on any legislative, judicial or executive tasks (other than raising campaign funds and getting re-elected). It also explains why Congress and the president have not proposed or passed any legitimate legislation addressing the critical problems facing the United States such as, the War in Iraq, illegal immigration, health care, crime, restless leg syndrome and erectile dysfunction.

A spokesperson for the Dr Phil TV show issued the statement, "Attention deficit disorder in politicians is bad for the country, bad for the people and bad for the country. Dr Phil recommends all U.S. politicians seek immediate treatment, before they completely ruin America by their inattention."

The first choice of treating political attention deficit disorder is ritalin and, if that doesn't work, experts recommend the immediate removal of campaign contributions; THAT gets their attention!
