Alert reader and devoted Olympics viewer Lidzville is convinced that Bush has been plastered during his trip to Beijing. I'm convinced. This Gawker photo essay is pretty damning, I'd have to say.
In Bush's defense, he hasn't publicly made a pass at anyone, and he hasn't vomited (unlike his dad). Plus, he's a lame duck at a sporting event -- what the hell. It's not like there's still a country that thinks highly of us that would suddenly be turned off because Bush looked drunk; we lost those countries years ago. Sure, maybe he should look more presidential on account of the ongoing international crisis in Georgia, but it's not like the U.S. can do anything about it anyway.
