NYTimes: Bush Skips Some Sessions at Group of 8 Due to Illness

HEILIGENDAMM, Germany, June 8—President Bush became ill with a mild stomach ailment Friday morning, forcing him to skip some working sessions and the so-called “family photo” of leaders of the world’s wealthiest democracies, but is now “back on schedule,” a top aide said.

Non-alcoholic beer, my ass. Number one, there ain't no such creature. All non-alcoholic beer contains some small percentage of alcohol. Recovering alcoholics don't drink non-alcoholic beer. Number two, look at that man. That is not a non-alcoholic beer, and he doesn't have a stomach bug. Here in reality-land, that's called a hangover.

I'm sure you're probably right, but how can you tell by looking that a person has a hangover? Bush is always pretty dopey looking... of course maybe he always has a hangover.

Granted. My case is entirely circumstantial.
