My Advice To Him...

My old friend The Elk posted about rumors that W, who's gotten a DUI and was known to have had a drinking problem in the past, was tying one on at the G8 meeting, and then missed meetings due to "an upset stomach."

Here's some footage (thanks Monkey Muck!):

People have been claiming that it was non-alcholic beer. According to blogs I've read, it wasn't. It was Krombacher, a hugely popular beer in Germany.

There has been a claim that it was an alchohol-free beer. Someone mentioned that the alchohol-free version has a red stripe on it. Here's a picture of it.

Um, I don't see no red stripe on the bottle in the video footage.

His presidency going down in flames. Even Republicans are being forced to admit that he was the blathering idiot who brought a pack of right wing nuts, grifters and religious fanatics into the White House. His legacy will be a Middle East that's even worse off than before he entered office. The blatant ineptitude of his cronies allowed 9/11 to happen, and left a major American city, New Orleans, in ruins. He's responsible for thousands of dead and wounded Americans and Iraqis.

And on top of that, he may even end up prosecuted once he is out of office and his presidential immunity lapses.

My advice to you, Mr. President, is to start drinking heavily...

Very, very heavily. He might want to consider mainlining vodka.

Tenacious S said...

Great advice! Nothing could ruin his reputation any more in my eyes. It's already in the gutter.

Not only that, he can't even make a decent pour. That's alcohol abuse, for sure.

I'm with you on that GKL, dude can't be bothered to tilt the glass a bit? WTF??

Seriously tho, he is abso-fucking-lutely the worst - ever!

You know what's amazing? He did the same thing at the G8 last year! Remember "yo, Blair" and the Merkel neck rub and the drunk photo op with Putin?

Oh, I love this rumor ...

Nice beer spillage o'er the top.

Back to Crawford, Mr. Bush!

Sadly true, Johnny. All of it.

I seem to remember him getting caught with alcohol on other occasions.

If I were in his shoes, I'd be drinking too.

Grant Miller said...

At least he doesn't do coke.

Johnny Yen said...

If he'd do that, I'd buy it for him.

From what I'm reading, it just may have been non-alcholic-- in a way, that's worse-- at least he'd have had drunkeness as an excuse for his appalling performance.

I know-- wtf! He went to college, nay, Yale and didn't learn a good pour?

He probably can't play "quarters" either.

Skyler's Dad-
I took a picture of a t-shirt in a shop window near my house-- you'll love it. Caption is "Worst President Ever."

I remember that!

This guy is such a nightmare-- it's as if the jerk who picked on the nerds and handicapped children in high school, then went off to college and joined a frat so he could continue his boorish lifestyle is now president.

I read a thing from Doonesbury authoer Garry Trudeau a while back-- seems that he and W's paths crossed-- they lived in the same dorm and ended up being on the dorm's student board. Trudeau said that the smirking asshole frat boy aura is geniune. W was a genuine jagoff.

Even if it turns out it was near-beer, I take some solace in the fact that even conservatives are starting to figure out this guy and his crew were bad news.

I'm pondering his retirement a lot these days. He's going to be an amazingly reviled public figure.

They really should just get Will Ferrell to step in for him - nobody would be able to tell the difference.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Holy god man, what a great piece. Good job. In other news, I tagged you. Go see my post called "Tag, I'm it" to see what the tag is all about.

The silence of our press on this is deafening.

Evil Spock said...

I'm drinking heavily to get through this administration. Hell, I'm drunk now!

(not really just in case my employer is reading this . . .)

God probably told W to toss back a couple (to relieve stress) during one of their many conversations.
