Grandma's View

I hate for this blog to seem like it's all about knocking Dubya, but please, just one more little story and I'll leave him alone... Do I have to promise?

My friend Dave's 103-year-old grandmother was recently released from the hospital after injuries suffered from a fall. Before her release the doctor wanted to make sure her mental condition was still satisfactory, so he asked her what year it was.

"1972," came her reply.

The doctor looked at her grandson with concern. He asked the centurion another question.

"Who is the president of the United States," asked the doctor.

"Bush," she fired back.

The doctor then asked, "Which one?"

Without hesitation she replied, "The crazy one!"

She was released without further questioning.
