Jaw Grindin' and Lip Lickin' -- W Does It All

Dubya has a strange lot of tics when he tries to speak in public these days. In a recent Q&A about his Supreme Court Nominee Harriet Miers, he "blinked 37 times in a single answer -- along with a lick of the lips, three weight shifts and some serious foot jiggling," according to Those never-gone rumors that Dubya is on some sort of drugs have resurfaced -- most reports indicating they are legal drugs intended to stabilize him for moments of public exposure. Trouble is, they seem to be causing strange tics in the Prezudint's face. Click here to see a video of his new tic, courtesy of "jaw grinding" -- as states, this is usually due to Bruxism, but can also be due to stress, dental problems or alcohol and drug problems (notably, Dubya's old foe, cocaine). It seems doubtless that he is under some sort of drug therapy -- there is no way that a person who, by all accounts, would rather be digging worms down in Texas could make the number of public appearances this guy does without the aid of chemical control. Clearly, his memory is being affected by all of this, this clip shows that he can't even remember Suh-damn Hoo-sane's name anymore (even more indication that his staff is practicing "Ahmadinejad" with him these days?) "We had success, you might recall," Dubya says, "with the fella in Baghdad." Yes, no you didn't.
