The Downside of Sobriety

Record surpluses become record deficits.
Iraq war botched.
New Orleans drowns.
Afghanistan war botched.
The US joins list of nations that practice torture.
Our Pakistani "ally" is tossed out.
The Russians slap Georgia around.
North Korea pops a bomb and then weasels.
The economy melts down.
Osama still lives.

Just think of how much better off the world might be if George W. Bush had just kept drinking.
