Q: What makes Bush's Chinese door blooper look like the Gettysburg address?

Since the guy was with the veep, we assume he'll be getting the very best of medical care, and the article makes it seem that he will in all likelihood be fine. In that spirit, let's place the over/under on the number of consecutive days that Letterman will joke about this in the monologue before skipping a day. Anyone? It's the monologue only, no desk chat, no audience games. And the offer is rescinded if the guy takes a turn for the worse; lowbrow is one thing, but tasteless quite another. One thing we will not do, rest well assured, is disappear this post down the memory hole.
