Updated 3-7-10: So, this week’s episode of the Prez has been up for a few days and so far it’s been seen by a few hudred people according to the stats and only one person privately emailed me and asked “Why is he smoking and what’s with all the liquor bottles in the White House?” Exactly! What is up with that?
To step away from my fictional character President Empty Suit (brother of Law, Monkey, and Zoot, by the way) and talk about the actual real life President Suit, one Barry Soetero AKA Barack Hussein Obama (brother of Mark Obama Ndesandjo and George Hussein Onyango Obama, the one that lives in a shack in Kenya where President Obama was not born despite his Kenyan grandmother saying he was born there, the Kenyan Ambassador to the US saying he as born there), this week he had a physical and his doctors told him to stop smoking and moderate his alcohol intake. Remember when during the campaign anyone who showed The One smoking or talked about his smoking was called a racist? Well, I do. But now we find out that Barry not only broke his promise to his wife that he would stop smoking once he was in the White House, we find out that his doctors are concerned enough about his liver profile that they’ve told him to slow down on the drinking.
Was this ever mentioned before? Well, yeah. Barry wrote about this himself in his book, that he used various drugs as a youth, but we were assured that was all over now. Maybe there’s no more cannabis or cocaine or other illicit substances (that we know of, since there is no indication a tox screen was done), but apparently The Bama loves to tipple, enough so that his doctors are concerned.
Have Presidents smoked and consumed alcohol in the White House before? Sure, they have. They’ve done worse than that. But if the current Prez is drinking enough that his doctors are concerned, who is running the country when he’s three sheets to the wind? For the man who presented himself as The Amazing Transparent Man, he sure has not been very forthcoming about his love of Ethyl.
