Bush boozing and Brown returns...

News & Politics

Yes, BIIIIIG caveat: the National Enquirer is involved. So grain of salt and all that.


Atrios points to two separate bits of info that, taken together, make you shrug, nod a bit and say: "weeelllll, maybe..."

First there's the astonishing announcement as Deanna posted earlier, that Bush's Arabian Horseman Michael "Brownie" Brown has returned to FEMA -- as a consultant.

But why risk the political capital as you're still recovering from Katrina fallout?

Makes a ton of sense if you give credence to this, from Jane Hamsher:

"according to sources within the Enquirer itself, the source for Bush's drinking story is -- an incredibly pissed-off, recently scapegoated head of a federal agency who thinks that BushCo. done him wrong."
