Was Bush Falling Down Drunk At Olympics?

by Ken Layne

Here comes a regular.
George W. Bush wasn’t just dripping sweat while acting like a lunatic at the Olympics — he also couldn’t actually stand up on his own. Jesus! See the creepy close-up, after the jump.

The whole neighborhood knows, I'm home drunk again ....

Pay no attention. He does that whenever he wants lots of men’s hands all over him….

Vanity Smurf August 12, 2008 at 12:33 am

Uh… Yes.

Richard Gozinya August 12, 2008 at 12:35 am

Am I the only one who sees the combover? Or does George just have a really shitty hairdo?

gurukalehuru August 12, 2008 at 12:40 am

Note the eye angle on the bald, black guy at the front and on the chimpster himself. He just pissed his pants, is all I’m saying.

Vanity Smurf August 12, 2008 at 12:41 am

I’ve thought for years that he suffers from porphyria. It would explain his mysterious unaccounted for time back in the 70s and it’s consistent with his stranger behaviors. Like his ancestor George II he’s just out of his mind when he’s on the sauce. Porphyria makes your pee blue too. Smurfy.

SayItWithWookies August 12, 2008 at 12:42 am

[re=57209]gurukalehuru[/re]: No, he’s frisking him. Right before she turned away, Laura hissed “Get that fucking flask off him now!”

SayItWithWookies August 12, 2008 at 12:43 am

“Shokay, Laura. Today is the firsht day of the resht of my vacation.”

NoWireHangers August 12, 2008 at 12:44 am

Laura’s all “everything’s great!” “nothing to see here!” while everyone else is like “disgusting American swine.”

Cronopio August 12, 2008 at 12:44 am

I just want some of whatever drugs Laura is on.

Johnny Zhivago August 12, 2008 at 12:45 am

No Ken, he’s not drunk in those photos – that’s his medical team trying to find his spine.

Guppy06 August 12, 2008 at 12:45 am

During one of his “firm talks” with Putin, he was offered something to drink.

Darehead August 12, 2008 at 12:46 am

Just when things were going swimmingly for the U.S., too. Sorry, Michael.

Vanity Smurf August 12, 2008 at 12:47 am

[re=57212]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Na… Pickles doesn’t give a shit. You can see it in her serenely medicated face. She’ll take full advantage of the SS detail for the rest of his life to see to it that she never has to acknowledge or deal with any of these antics. She is the very picture of obliviousness.

BobLoblawLawBlog August 12, 2008 at 1:00 am

Well, shit, you’ve done it, you smirking chimp, you…you’ve made me feel bad for Laura.

ManchuCandidate August 12, 2008 at 1:00 am

I no longer wonder how he could choke on a pretzel.

SayItWithWookies August 12, 2008 at 1:02 am

[re=57220]Vanity Smurf[/re]: Can’t agree. I think she’s a ballcutter. She took a wastoid and got him cleaned up, sober, running for office and as close to fit for polite society as anyone was gonna make ‘im. She is not about to let his bad behavior bring all that crashing down around her now.

AnnieGetYourFun August 12, 2008 at 1:03 am

[re=57220]Vanity Smurf[/re]: I believe that it is less medication, more surgically frozen into the scariest Joker-like smile in the entire world. At least her husband is capable of having more than one facial expression, even if they are all variations on the same theme (retardation).

UnreliableNarrator August 12, 2008 at 1:08 am

Ok, I’m sorry, I have to take a break from the (deserved, necessary) bashing of our idiot-and-chief here and just say that, hey, if I could go hang out at the Beijing Olympics for a week and get trashed and feel up hot volleyball players, I would be all over that shit, Eurasian military crises or no Eurasian military crises. C’mon, wouldn’t anyone? Tsingtao is good.

SayItWithWookies August 12, 2008 at 1:20 am

Something in me wonders if there’s an innocent explanation for this — and then I see all the elements together: Laura determined not to look; Barbara’s obvious concern (poor dear — really); the Secret Service guys holding his arms so he doesn’t slump down; and (in the top pic) the guy to the right in the back row with his hand over his mouth. What that guy’s thinking is probably right.

regisgoat August 12, 2008 at 1:21 am

This will sound weird, but in a way I think I’d respect him more if I knew he was completely fucking plastered all the time. If he’s doing all the things he’s doing sober, on the other hand…

shortsshortsshorts August 12, 2008 at 1:36 am

He wasn’t fucking drunk. He’s just as stupid as a Ford.

Darehead August 12, 2008 at 1:42 am

[re=57216]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: He’s still going through golf withdrawal.

S.Luggo August 12, 2008 at 1:53 am

Hop-sing, no likey-likey too much the starch in the cuffs, please. My wife perhaps, if it is powdery and alkaloid-based.

Perot le fou August 12, 2008 at 1:54 am

Alex Pareene would not appriciate that caption, Bush is no Bob Stinson.

anabellum August 12, 2008 at 2:01 am

ive been saying Bush is off the wagon for at least a month…to me, its clear and im not kidding…

Laura is as close to a mannequin as youll ever find…and not someone who should be looked to for clues concerning anything approaching common human behavior…even her husbands…

KittyKatMan August 12, 2008 at 2:01 am

Jäger or high on stupid. It causes the same effect. I know.

TGY August 12, 2008 at 2:10 am

Stalin said it.

Never be bombed in front of a camera.

Or something like that.

tynansanger August 12, 2008 at 2:53 am

Obviously he was channeling Boris Yeltsin to help understand the Russia-Georgia conflict better.

Manchowder August 12, 2008 at 3:00 am

It is not like there is a fresh war, or a massive global event to attend that might require a sober vice president. At least we can trust president Cheney to resolve this little Caucasus conflict.

economywine August 12, 2008 at 3:01 am

Jesus, not even Hunter Thompson got this fucked up in China… well at least he covered that scary raspberry on his elbow.

I’ve woken up at burning man wearing only a lab coat and a condom, and still have to say DAAAAMN! If there was ever a proper time to wake up that way, it would be in Nevada. At the Olympics in front of billions of TV watchers, damn. Totally checked out.

graceless August 12, 2008 at 7:11 am

He’s just high on the Chinese pollution.

Servo August 12, 2008 at 7:11 am

Eight goddamned years of this walking talking septic sludge! It’s amazing that TWICE the fearful voting public ignored the warnings that King George ran everything he touched right into the ground. Do you feel secure now? Dumb fucks.

eyesfriedopen August 12, 2008 at 7:27 am

Personally, I feel sorry for the Secret Service agents. Their whole careers they dream of nothing more than taking a bullet for the president. All these guys can hope for is having the president fall on them. Some glory, huh?

gurukalehuru August 12, 2008 at 7:32 am

The MSM is ignoring this one. Drudge doesn’t even have it. Like Laura, they are all looking away.

There is no other explanation for that photo. He’s blind drunk.

Fear of a Black Reagan August 12, 2008 at 7:38 am

I’m a recovering drunk, and I can say for certain that he was *fucking hammered*. Just like his ancestor Franklin Pierce, who drank himself to death after he left the White House. He kept the drinking in private for most of his presidency – like the pretzel incident – but lately he’s been shitfaced in public like all the time. ‘Member his retarded little tapdance when he was waiting for McCain to show up? He has been off the wagon for years.

trophy(forparticipation)wife August 12, 2008 at 8:28 am

He certainly seems to be governing under the influence.

hrhkingfriday August 12, 2008 at 8:50 am

Laura’s all “where my reds?!?”

4tehlulz August 12, 2008 at 8:57 am

[re=57277]gurukalehuru[/re]: They’re probably all scared to reveal that Cheney real is in charge now.

oh shi-

V572625694 August 12, 2008 at 8:57 am

[re=57265]HughJennicks[/re]: You could always tell Ken was connected to the higher powers. Or acting as their puppet.

Johnny Zhivago August 12, 2008 at 9:01 am

[re=57288]trophy(forparticipation)wife[/re]: Governing??? More like “impersonating a President, while under the influence”

Mumble Softly August 12, 2008 at 9:10 am

I see no problem here. Who among us has never been piss drunk at a sporting event?

Let he who is without vomit on the bottom of his chin cast the first stone.

trophy(forparticipation)wife August 12, 2008 at 9:13 am

[re=57305]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: I’m not sure that I would go even that far, if we’re going to get technical. I can’t think of which president he may be impersonating.

madirishman August 12, 2008 at 9:15 am

[re=57260]economywine[/re]: Not true! Didn’t Thompson once claim that he dropped acid while touring the Great Wall of China?

[re=57288]trophy(forparticipation)wife[/re]: [re=57305]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: Just keep telling yourselves, “Only 161 days until we get this fool off the world stage.”

[re=57276]eyesfriedopen[/re]: Here’s an interesting riddle for the Secret Service. You are sworn to protect the President’s SAFETY. You are also sworn to obey the President’s ORDERS. If an alcoholic President tells you, “Get me a bottle of vodka.”, what do you do?

walnuts4brkfst August 12, 2008 at 9:23 am

Did anyone see his interview with Bob Costas? The dude(Bush not Costas) is bat shi- bonkers, and can not put a full line of thought together, or answer interview questions in a coherent manner. Not to mention his posture (slouched down in chair with legs spread wide) makes him look more like a high school jock sitting bored in class than a world leader participating in a nationally televised interview. For his sake, we should blame it on the Tsing Tao.

dano August 12, 2008 at 9:27 am

[re=57278]Fear of a Black Reagan[/re]: Agreed. He’s slurs his words all the time now. Hell, if I was him I’d get drunk too. He’s fucked up everything he’s touched and 75% of Americans hate him like cancer.

Wagamuffin August 12, 2008 at 9:32 am

Even Mr. Bean is horrified by the presidential faux pas…or else he’s throwing up in his mouth a little (sympathy pangs?).

Mr.BorgtoYou August 12, 2008 at 9:41 am

What a schmuck! Not only is he a moron, but he is a freakin horndog too. Not that I blame him with hot volleyball chicks and all but he is supposed to bring honor back to the White House dammit!

AngryBlakGuy August 12, 2008 at 10:43 am

…in the immortal words of Brian the dog:

“Im not drunk I just have a speech impediment….and a stomach virus…and a inner ear infection “

“Crazy Eyes” resurrects the face she perfected during George’s alcoholic years… “Smile & Look the Other Way!”

[re=57320]walnuts4brkfst[/re]: I saw that interview. At the end of it, Costas (who I swear to God has been wearing a dyed toupee) said “Ok, you’re dismissed.” Costas seems like an idiot, but what a great line!

stolichnayaaa August 12, 2008 at 1:18 pm

Jon Stewart’s characterization of him as “National Mascot” seems apt.

It’s been enlightening watching American athletes interact with the President of the United States as if he were a fraternity pledge. “Brush off my ass!” “Raise the roof, Mr. President!”

I think it’s time to get the special edition Short Yellow Air Force One plane out of the hanger, and bring our first family back home so they can get ready for the tar and feathering and following frog march.

If someone (are you listening Dennis?) can get their protective measures reversed so “W”, Cheney, Rice, Rove, Rumfilled, and the rest of these scumbags will havfe to stand trial for their war crimes, Nuremberg will be viewed as kid stuff.

1st agenda on their menu?

Waterboarding, which they all feel isn’t that bad of a thing.

jerryw August 13, 2008 at 12:10 am

Actually, the bald black guy is checking “W” to see if he’s got wood.

Not enough blood in his alcohol stream to run a pea brain and a boner at the same time.

So, the lower brain wins again, George goes to ground.

Jerry w


Oscar Folsom Cleveland August 13, 2008 at 1:59 am

Poor Laura! Damned if she pays attention – facing up to George’s addictions (alcohol, blow, male swimmers, fat bald-headed dudes) only enables Shrub to dive deeper into propping up his shattered male ego.

But turning away, as she does here in a classic “American Wife” move, headed towards her own private rendezvous with an Azerbaijani female gymnast named Daghlar Gizi, well, then the First Lady experiences those God awful familiar Bitters guilt pangs that life has taught her are our own best friend.

Can’t. Forget. Running. Over. That. Dude.

You hang in there, Laura girl! Hillary did it and so can you. Once free of the White House, you’ll soar like a Byrd in a life of your own making!

newscat August 13, 2008 at 5:39 am

You bet Oscar F. Cleveland!

I often wondered if her dopey “stand by your man” act, though pitiful was genuine or if she had a plan. Recent news says she plans to live in a very nice area – sans the chimp who will be ensconced on his lovely brush farm. Whatever the perks, it can’t have been worth it.

Thank you Wonkette, these are suitable for framing!

phasthutch August 13, 2008 at 9:01 am

He is such an easy target…don’t exercise your wit and astute powers of observation on GWB. Go after Cheney or Addington or Yoo or Gonzales. They are probably drugging Dubya just to keep him under their control. But as all can see, he is getting pretty uncontrollable. The next step? He will probably have a “stroke”. And then? President Darth Vader.

Jimbob Jumpback August 13, 2008 at 11:22 am

It’s been reported that he is a dry drunk, based on his track record he’s been drunk his entire term.

This incident makes want to see the movie

tocute2btrue August 13, 2008 at 8:27 pm

You base turds be saying this shit about me next year.
That shorts guy is the dumass Bush don’t drive a Ford.
I can’t wear shorts shorts shorts the big mans head hangs out.

Cal-el August 14, 2008 at 4:25 pm

Is there any video so that we can prove that the photos weren’t doctored or taken at inopportune times? Some are fiercely challenging the thought.


georgepwebster August 14, 2008 at 10:38 pm

George W will be the first ex-President who really needs Secret Service protection. What a conflict of interest if he goes hunting with Cheney.

Don’t Secret Service agents, like all other Federal employees who aren’t Republican appointees, take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic?
What would happen if an agent saw it as a Constitutional duty to take George out, rather than take a bullet for him?

I once interacted with Jenna and one of her Secret Service detail. The agent was, almost petite, dark, and attractive; well-defined forearm muscles, intense; and seemed to have had it up to here with the twinkie eating clunker, she was forced to shepherd. Probably wanted to trade places with Sinbad, and cover Hillary on the tarmac in Kosovo.

Laura’s probably just daydreaming of next year, and the probability of running into George, while driving around Dallas.

George’s “dry drunk” goes well with his dry humor.

After each public speaking “incident”, George later confers with Laura about his performance. Dutiful wife that she is, Laura always gives George a hand….

usually palm up…against the side of his head.

folksonomie August 15, 2008 at 10:48 pm

Maybe George Bush has a combination of Mao’s revenge and jetlag.
Maybe he just shat in his pants, like Charlotte, in “Sex and the City” goes to Mexico?

acarponzo August 17, 2008 at 2:15 pm

Actually, when he was a Bop Bag, maybe he was Bagged! His Bop Bag out sold Kerry’s two to one in the last election. Now that there is a virtual realtime online poll at http://www.bop-o-rama.com, we can see who is getting bopped the most. Obama is getting bopped like crazy. I do not think this is a poll he wants to lead. Your bops count in realtime!
