DURST: The Health of the President

In a turnaround just shy of Frank Sinatra calling Jose Feliciano arrogant, Bob Dole has called for Bill Clinton to make his full medical record public. What's next: Madonna calling Mother Teresa a slut? Jim Belushi referring to Tori Spelling as a nepotistic parasite?Yeah, the health of a President is an issue, but considering the incumbent looks like he could down eight Big Macs while jogging to the signing of a bill taking food from the mouths of Inner City children, this has to be a smokescreen from Bob Dole, survivor of prostate cancer.Hell, you want to talk appearances here? You know how Presidents age while they're in office? Imagine what Dole will look like after a full term. A sarcophagus rode hard, put away wet, and beat with a wire brush is my guess. President Vlad the Impaler. A leader who would galvanize visiting dignitaries into demanding garlic strands served with the appetizers at State Dinners. White House mirrors -- gone. Perhaps the Dolemeister knows something we don't, (does the term social disease, and I'm not talking Liberalism, have any meaning here) or maybe he's just looking to break the world record for chutzpah. Will Durst gives him a 4.5. It would have been higher had he stuck his dismount.
