Sources close to White House have confirmed that the reason why George Bush has so many slips of his tongue and puts his foot in his mouth during his public speeches is because he has irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
"You see, he has to visit the toilet at least fifty times a day," explained the in-house surgeon at the White House, Dr. Cureall Withakick. "This makes him dance on his toes all the time."
"Yes, that's so right," agreed Someache Allthetime, the resident Reiki Guru of the White House. "If he is in the middle of an important press conference or a speech, and if he has this sudden urge to go to the toilet, the poor guy can think of nothing else. The intense pressure on his bowels, puts a lot of stress on his mind, and then he just makes these silly mistakes."
Former President, Bill Clinton however felt that the White House was just trying to pull wool over everyone's eyes. "I should know better about this than anyone else, as I learnt the art of pulling wool over the eyes of the American public during my wonderful times with Monica," he grunted. "George? Bush? With IBS? What nonsense! They are just trying to cover his backside."
"But that is precisely the point," said Fara Khan, the Black Rights movement guy. "The whole problem with George is his backside. One cannot tell the difference between his backside and his head."
The White House has refused to comment on Fara Khan's statement that has caused outrage amongst the supporters of Bush - even though there are only three left in the world.
