The Java Jive

New puritan alert:

Old conventional DC wisdom: Man, could Ted Kennedy and Tip O’Neill put it away, or what?!

New conventional DC wisdom:  caffeine: the satanic potion. Or as Ace of Spades writes:

Vetting: The Hill Notes Joe Wilson Used to Take Legal No-Doz Caffeine Pills; Forgets President Used to do “Grass” and “Blow”

Hey, that Joe Wilson. Started taking NoDoz in college, kept on taking them for years and years.

Just sayin’. Just… sayin’.

Draw your own conclusions.

Meanwhile, we have an admitted cokehead as president and the media never really bothered to discuss that.

But caffeine?

It’s a gateway drug, man. For the harder stuff. Like… well, like coke, which our President used to snort.

More at Hot Air, including his donation page; and even Lindsey Graham says he’ll go to bat for his old friend Joe.

Who doesn’t even seem to need help, as his seat looks like a lock for Republicans.

Meanwhile, Newsbusters spots Mike Barnacle sitting in for Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, stating, “Democrats hope to turn Wilson into the Cindy Sheehan of the anti-health care reform movement.”

Presumably Maureen Dowd will claim Wilson has absolute moral authority in her next column, and CNN will shortly begin churning out pro-Wilson hagiography along these lines.
