Twist of Lyme

Maybe I’m wrong but I think the White House is missing a great opportunity in the recently revealed news that Bush was treated for Lyme disease a year ago, especially considering that some of the symptoms of untreated Lyme disease include memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and changes in mood. Left untreated for a long time, it can cause irreversible intellectual impairment, and dementia too. That would explain a lot about this president. But, then again, if the White House went that route, they’d have an uphill battle to convince people that the president has been successfully treated. Or, for that matter, that the whole administration didn’t somehow get infected with it.


  1. God I bet all the Democrats were infected with it too! They just must have never got any treatment. That may explain all the flip-flopping on opinions!

  2. You’re missing the point – the real point is that the President contracted a disease that can cause intellectual impairment and dementia, and no one noticed a difference!
