Today's terribly untrue Internet rumor

Bush falls off the wagon?

A dubious report in The National Enquirer says that President Bush has started drinking again.
Bush is under the worst pressure of his two terms in office and his popularity is near an all-time low. The handling of the Katrina crisis and troop losses in Iraq have fueled public discontent and pushed Bush back to drink. A Washington source said: "The sad fact is that he has been sneaking drinks for weeks now. Laura may have only just caught him - but the word is his drinking has been going on for a while in the capital. He's been in a pressure cooker for months.
Is it true? Who knows. But we do know Bush has lied about his drinking before. Though the president claims to have stopped drinking in July 1986, a wedding video from 1992 tells a different story.
