Yes, yes, Kitty Kelley is trashmonger and all that -- but you know what? I'm not sure why I should automatically dismiss the idea that Bush was doing lines of coke at Camp David, or that he and Laura were toking on Tortola, or that the First Lady hustled dime bags in college. They were young, people get high when they're young, so what. Just yesterday I was talking to a young man who was busted for simple possession; today at lunch I overheard a girl say she just got out of jail for the same thing. In thirty years they're probably both going to be overweight, on their third divorce, voting Republican and pretending they never had a youth. Way of the world.
