This is an excellent thing to do for colon cancer awareness; however CBS' consistent support for Obamacare contradicts it since only those who are "more equal" will be able to get regular colonoscopies after Obamacare is enacted.

I had my first last month. Piece of cake. Nobody should fear this. I had nothing but a little case of diverticulitis, as do most of you.

Viewers will also learn what Smith had to do to prepare for it.

They are going to air him guzzling two quarts or so of a nasty tasting liquid then spending the next hour or two on the can emptying out his colon?

Yuck!

All I learned from that experience is why it is sometimes better to pay more money for the brand name soft butt-wipe.

Hi Harry. You remember what I told you. You know. What would happen to you if you didn't make sure my health care bill got passed?

Don't feel bad. Wait until you hear what I have in store for Nancy.

I had the procedure about a year ago. After it was over they handed me some lovely color photographs of my colon. My wife, being the character that she is, grabbed them and said, “Well, Honey, it looks like we’ve got our Christmas card for this year!”

Strange lady, but I love her.

I suppose if Harry wants to be guaranteed nothing is found inside, then he better have Geraldo there.

OK ....

Why do Katie and Harry even need a colonoscopy? Seriously? They spend so much time with their heads up their arses, they should have a pretty good idea what it looks like in there ...

I’ve had two and concur. Nothing to it. The worst part is drinking the koolaide that cleans you out, but even that wasn’t as bad this time.
