According to today's Washington Post, doctors are experimenting with a new kind of surgery which doesn't involve cutting into a person's flesh. Instead, organs can be removed through openings in the body. Using this procedure, for example, a gall bladder may be removed through the mouth so that the patient won't have to go under the knife.
Good idea---this virtually guarantees that Dick Cheney's heart may be delivered through his rectum, and the president's brain through his right ear. As for Sarah Palin, since she appears to lack both, the birth canal will have to do.
