The Monday Flu

Considering our fascination with the personal lives of our presidents*, you'd think that the American press would be interested in whether W, an admitted alcoholic, is drinking again.

Especially since the day after he was seen drinking, he missed some meetings at the G8 due to "an upset stomach" or "the flu" or "a bug that has been going around."

All fine excuses for staying home with a hangover, as many of my own work colleagues could attest.

Check out Johnny Yen's post for the whole story.



*I know y'all were expecting a Bill Clinton link there.

Ah, the joys of working from home... I no longer have to say I have a stomach ache when I'm hungover.

And he can't even pour a beer.

Maybe he was to drunk to pour the beer the world saw him drinking.

Drunk and a "former" coke-head...

It's all OK so long as he doesn't get a blowjob!

Thanks for the link!

I'm reading in some places that it might have been a Buckler NA beer. Doesn't change a thing-- he's still a disaster.

My secret slang expression for a bout of heavy drinking is "getting stupid." The talented Mr. Bush seems to be able to do it without the booze.

Obberman reported it was Buckler (non-alcoholic)

Too drunk to fuck up the world any worse?

Pretzels. I repeat, we need pretzels.
