Bush Drinking Again? It Would Be An Improvement.

A lot of talk among those of us who like life in the gutter about whether George Bush is drinking again.

I don't think it's fun to crack wise about alcoholics, so I'll hold back even on President MonkeyBrains.

But it made me think of an old episode of WKRP in Cincinnati in which Dr. Johnny Fever is the test subject for an on-air "say no to alcohol" campaign. Johnny is supposed to drink more and more alcohol and take a driving test I think (might've been some other kind of test) to show how alcohol impairs your motor skills.

Instead, Johnny gets better at the tests with each beer, much to the consternation of the group that is trying to spotlight the dangers of alcohol.

Might Bush be a modern-day Dr. Johnny Fever? Could he be a better president with a shot now and then?

Who wants to pour?
