WHO DO YOU HAVE TO INVADE TO GET A DRINK AROUND HERE?

George W. Bush remains an untreated alcoholic. The untreated alcoholic who has simply stopped drinking treats anxiety as an enemy. Bush’s current enemy, the primary cause of his anxiety, is Cindy Sheehan.

So says Justin Frank. This idea has been floated before, but whether blended or on the rocks, it leaves us thirsty for more information. Denied his fermented medication, how can a non-selfreflecting trog find a purchase on the rocky wall of life?

I like to think our President wakes up agitated, afraid, shaking--why should I be the only one? During diplomatic lunches, let his eyes linger on some Frenchperson's white Bordeaux, or let him scan the room looking for feral olives and fading paper umbrellas and the sound of stirring swizzle sticks. The real boilermaker here, the foam you can hitch your keg to, is that once a day our President is at peace, happy, drunk. Oh, wait, he doesn't drink anymore. Shit, better give him his tab and send him out: he could blow any second...

Actually, I think an untreated alcoholic who simply stops drinking starts growing up (which, however, has nothing to do with my behavior Saturday night). . .

Really, it doesn't.

So I guess Bush's real age is in his early twenties...hmm, maybe he should go back to school and learn how to study.

I'll believe Bush stopped drinking when he stops falling off bicycles. . .
