IS BUSH DRINKING?--
Steve Gilliard brings us a intruiging story: Bush just may be back on the bottle. The arch-conservative base won't be happy about this.
My prediction is that we're going to end up seeing with Bush what we unfortunately saw with Clinton--congressional candidates, as well as the Republican 2008 presidential candidate, keeping their distance from W, since by that time he will be a grave political liability if things keep on their current course.
Which reminds me--if it costs another $200 billion to clean up after Hurricane Rita, will it make Bush and the Repubs finally break down on tax cuts and the estate tax?
Stay tuned--the next few months could see the fission of the Republican party, and the re-emergence of fiscal conservatism. If so, thank the maker, whoever that is.
