Washington (Rotters) President Bush today convened a rare Sunday afternoon cabinet meeting. Rumor had it the the meeting was to address declining poll numbers as well as strategies for dealing with the emerging 'Downing Street Memos', and the controversy over closing the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Through a mix up in security reporters and photographers were allowed a brief moment's access as the meeting broke up. Cabinet members appeared visibly stunned, but refused to answer questions.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan later stated,"I've repeated the fact over and over that this President simply does not respond to polls. This was not a "Prayer Meeting", or a "Come to Jesus", in any way. It was simply an informal get together, who among us doesn't enjoy lounging around in a robe on their day off."
