Well, Someone’s On Drugs

WELL, SOMEONE’S ON DRUGS….Need a laugh? Capitol Hill Blue is better than the National Enquirer. Today they break the story that George Bush is scarfing down “powerful anti-depressant drugs to control his erratic behavior, depression and paranoia”:

[White House physician Richard] Tubb prescribed the anti-depressants after a clearly-upset Bush stormed off stage on July 8, refusing to answer reporters’ questions about his relationship with indicted Enron executive Kenneth J. Lay.

?Keep those motherfuckers away from me,? he screamed at an aide backstage. ?If you can?t, I?ll find someone who can.?

….The White House did not return phone calls seeking comment on this article.

Gee, I’m surprised they didn’t respond. Must have been a busy day in the press office.

Maybe they’ll call back tomorrow.

POSTSCRIPT: I periodically get emails from people who want to know if Capitol Hill Blue is a reliable source. I think this story should give you a clue.
