The Power of Alcohol

The Gazette co-blogger Pieter Dorsman published a post recently about Bush telling Robert Draper that if he would’ve continued to drink as much as he did, he wouldn’t have been able to make the difficult decision he had to made (with regards to the Iraq War). Pieter rightfully pointed out that Winston Churchill drank a lot but still was able to make good decisions.

The great Andrew Sullivan linked to Pieter’s post, so it got quite some hits and comments (from people who normally don’t visit the blog). Some of them seem to have thought that Pieter argued that the more one drinks, the better decisions one makes. Of course, that’s not what he meant at all, he meant something else. To read what he was hinting at, please read his follow-up.

    JD and others have commented on Bush being a “dry drunk”. There as much evidence that a “dry drunk” is just as bad(neurotic) as a functioning alcoholic.
