George Bush Drinking Again? Wanna Bet?

George Bush ToastWhen the Enquirer came out with their story about George Bush drinking again, the Liquor Snob interns begged us to cover it. We told them we loved their enthusiasm, then informed them we'd rather drink a Flirtini than cover anything from that rag, and sent them out to clean up bottles after last night's research.

Then, we saw something that piqued our interest - a press release from a site called BetCRIS.com, placing odds on whether the story was true. Booze, the president, tabloids and gambling? Now THAT'S a story.

If you're a betting person, the press release goes on to list the actual odds placed on different aspects of the Bush drinking story, as well as some other interesting ones:
Bush exposed for drinking alcohol during his presidency is featured with odds of 5 to 1. Compare that with 15 to 1 odds that Bush actually admits to drinking alcohol.

Bush checking into a rehab program is listed with 40 to 1 odds. Bush becoming a preacher is listed with 2 to 1 odds. Bush converting to Judaism is posted with 300 to 1 odds. Bush becoming a Muslim is posted with 500 to 1 odds.

"Anything Bush-related is going to draw hordes of gamblers. Interesting enough one of the few odds BetCRIS.com has chosen not to post is whether George W. gets impeached." stated Payton O'Brien, Web Manager for Gambling911.

Bush becomes a spokesman for Viagra/Cialis is listed with 35 to 1 odds, incidentally.

In the end though, BetCRIS.com has plenty of faith in the president. They list "None of the Above" as an overwhelming 1 to 500 favorite, meaning a gambler must bet $500 to win a dollar.
We'll be betting the Liquor Snob interns' salaries for the week on Bush becoming a Muslim, to teach them a lesson about journalism.

WOW MORE LIBERAL bullshit, there's a shocker, I might have to keep drinking if I hear one more uninformed moron who just got off the short bus talk about politics. I guess I should just talk to your ass since you apprently are talking out of it. I guess you just lost some sales that was smart thinking. Your stupidity and ignorance on the world is amazing I think you have drank all of your brain cells away.
