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...
