Our Teetotaler-in-Chief

The Associated Press caption reads:

U.S. President George Bush and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, right, enjoy a cold drink in historic Heiligendamm, Germany, Thursday, June 7, 2007. The leaders of the G8 nations are holding their annual summit in the sea resort on June 6-8, 2007. (AP Photo/Christophe Ena)

UPDATED* - According to reports, Bush got a little sick on the last day of the G8 summit. Our Teetotaler-in-Chief had to miss some meetings. Some say it must have been something he ate. Others say it was something he drank. However, his trustworthy advisers have insisted that Bush, a self-professed alcoholic, was sipping on non-alcoholic beer.

Caption reads:

President Bush drinks a beer as he jokes about his non-plans to reduce carbon emissions with German chancellor Angela Merkel and British prime minister Tony Blair
. Later Blair and Bush lamented the non-success of their war in Iraq. How they laughed!

And the video....

Well, I guess the rumors are true. W, a dry drunk who has never gotten counseling or gone to A.A. meetings, has fallen off the wagon.

During his last months in office, Richard Nixon was drunk much of the time and made decisions that way. Will W? This is serious because he is a confirmed alcoholic. So, this is not the same as another president having a beer. An alcoholic who has fallen off the wagon with his finger on the nuclear trigger is a real threat to us all.

I'd heard these rumors elsewhere as well. But then again, do we know that this isn't a nonalcoholic German beer? Is there such a thing?

While I cannot say for certain that there are no non-alcoholic German beers (it's been 20 years since I've been in Germany), I am skeptical of the idea, Laura. I think German brewers would be insulted by the very idea. :-)

BTW, considering W's "massage therapy" sexual harassment of Chancellor Merkl at the last G-8, I think she should be VERY nervous if George has started drinking again--and so should Laura Bush.
