Bush Is Drinking Again
Mainstream media has images of Bush drinking a beer and later rolling on the floor with laughter.
H/T to Crooks and Liars for the first picture and Think Progress for the second one.
But not too worry, though. C&L informs us, it's not real beer. Really..! You see, it was a non-alcoholic one; and it all depends on what the meaning of "beer" is.
What a bunch of crap! Besides, what's this business about Bush having to leave the summit early due to some mysterious ailment?!?
"President Bush is slightly indisposed this morning and will rejoin the working meeting as soon as he can," French President Nicolas Sarkozy told the press today. Of course, pictures tell the story of merriment the night before with British Prime Minister Tony Blair and German Chancellor Angela Merkel,"on the balcony of their hotel in Heiligendam." And news accounts note of the huge "foaming head [of] the German brew."
Ask any recovering alcoholic about near-beer and they'll tell you it's a definite no-no. There is no such thing as non-alcoholic beer. They have as much as 2 percent alcohol, you have to be over 21 years old to purchase it, and the beer can only be shipped to states where alcohol is permitted to be shipped interstate.
For more than two years, Howling Latina has written that she thought Bush had fallen off the wagon; and noted that media stories popped up from time to time that claimed the very same thing. There's even a YouTube video from CBS's "The Late Late Show."
Well, like the stain on Monica's blue dress, a picture is worth a thousand words. The persistent pesky rumors were obviously true. Drink enough O'Douls and yep, you'll get your buzz on and choke on a pretzel; or fall off your bike.
Don't believe me? Well, just go ask any friend of Bill what he or she would think if a drunk were to tell them they're still sober after drinking a few so-called non-alcoholic beers.
Pick up a new 24-hour chip, Mr. President You obviously fell off the wagon. Remember, "to thyself be true."
Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
