Playing catch-up on this, but only by hours, and it’s never too late for such news. Here’s UCLA Professor Stephen Bainbridge’s reader poll. The professor (of corporate law, no less) cites a report in The National Enquirer, which claims the Bullshitter-in-Chief has reverted to an old habit.
He’s boozing again:
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!”
Speculation about his drinking — like this tale of mood swings and erratic behavior — has been bruited for so long that (on the principle that there’s fire where there’s smoke) it may actually be true. Or it may just be a clever National Enquirer editor figuring, “Time to rev up the rumor machine and work that story again.” But either way, we love it.
And this is no rumor, we’re glad to say.
