Apollo 4 on column of fire

The Bush is drunk

I was listening to a speech the Bush gave somewhere recently, and His speech was halting and a bit slurred. Most likely explanation IMO: He was drunk.

Having a drunk leader is a problem but not necessarily, perhaps, enough to justify trading him or her in. A Drunk who denies drinking, on the other hand, is one of the last Things we need. Such a Person, however much He drinks, will act as if He has the whole terrifying world under control, even as He and His enablers (the rest of us) approach rock bottom.
