, "a repository of, some would say useless, knowledge".
But is the story: "Dangers of a Drunk Dubya" which gives author Douglas Adams's analysis of the National Enquirer story that Dubya is drinking againscary and provocative analysis from the viewpoint of a recovering alcoholic.
His sober reflections make his suppositions all too possible given the President's falling national popularity numbers, and joint crises in Iraq and the Gulf of Mexico which just received another pounding today.
But can the Enquirer be trusted? Here's an excerpt from the story, right-click on the link to see the whole thing.
National Enquirer: "BUSH'S BOOZE CRISIS"
By JENNIFER LUCE and DON GENTILE
Faced with the biggest crisis of his political life, President Bush has hit the bottle again, The National Enquirer can reveal.
Bush, who said he quit drinking the morning after his 40th birthday, has started boozing amid the Katrina catastrophe.
Family sources have told how the 59-year-old president was caught by First Lady Laura downing a shot of booze at their family ranch in Crawford, Texas, when he learned of the hurricane disaster.
His worried wife yelled at him: 'Stop, George.'
Following the shocking incident, disclosed here for the first time, Laura privately warned her husband against 'falling off the wagon' and vowed to travel with him more often so that she can keep an eye on Dubya, the sources add.
'When the levees broke in New Orleans, it apparently made him reach for a shot,' said one insider. 'He poured himself a Texas-sized shot of straight whiskey and tossed it back. The First Lady was shocked and shouted: 'Stop George!'"
Well the story is certainly dramatic enough, but much as I have enjoyed having some fun at President Bush's expense in these posts, the last thing that I's wish on anyone, let alone our president is a slide back into alcoholism with all of its pain, misery, self-doubts and destructive personal power.
No, let's all keep him in our prayers that THIS story is not true. We need an effective president right now, and if Bush fails all we have to rely on is Mr. Personality himself, Dick Cheny.
In a hopefully unrelated story, ultra-thin Uber Model Kate Moss apologized to her fans and the company with which she had a contract with that had a morals clause for her recently admitted cocaine use. Let us hope that this leads to recovery and abstinence from substance abuse on her part.
In a related story, Winnie the Pooh has been released from Rabbits' Honeytree Clinic for Honey Overeaters. Pooh accidentally checked himself into the now fashionalbe clinic when he was able to get in the front door of the clinic, but while visiting, ate soo much honey that he was not able to get out of the door for quite some time.
"It was no bloody picnic for me either, I can tell you that" a certain bunny was overheard saying. I swear, if I hear one more verse of "Cottlestone Pie, there will be one less bear in the world if I have anything left to say about it!"
When asked if he really, meant such a horrible, awful thing by reporter C.R., rabbit broke down under interrogation weeping, "Of course not, we're like hutch mates now, he just gets on me nerves now and then. Especially as I've been out of honey since he got stuck in the doorway with no way to get anymore in. Such a bother, always asking me if I happened to find any more honey around the place, enven though e ===> We love comments about our posts good or bad!
