Chaffetz tweets colonoscopy

Who says August recess is a sleepy time for political tweeters? Republican congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah blazed a whole new trail Tuesday by noting a recent medical procedure on Twitter.

He said:

Clean bill of health. Prep for Colonoscopy is no fun, but the procedure is worthwhile. 5 yrs and do it again :)

His 11, 674 followers should have seen it coming, since Chaffetz had also joked about the procedure Monday:

Tomorrow I am getting a Colonoscopy. Routine. Just checking. (Let's see if they put that in the "Political Cornflakes")

Here's hoping the congressman, 43, stays healthy until the next one.
