I Guess Those Poll Numbers Are Getting Him Down 

What bubbly amber liquid is our famously abstemious President drinking in this picture ... in Germany?

The AP caption reads slyly: " U.S. President George Bush enjoys a cold drink in historic Heiligendamm, Germany, Thursday, June 7, 2007."

And is it a coincidence that the AP chose this picture to illustrate this story:
Stricken with a stomach ailment that confined him to his hotel room, President Bush still met Friday with France's new president and prepared for talks in Poland on a new missile defense system.

The president was already dressed when he began feeling ill in the morning, White House counselor Dan Bartlett said. He said doctors are keeping an eye on him but that Bush's illness — whether a stomach virus, a light touch of food poisoning or something else — is "not serious."

He stayed in bed to try to rest and recuperate, missing the morning session of the summit being held here of eight industrialized democracies.
