This is still breaking news as posted, but Attorney General John Ashcroft has been hospitalized this morning with Gallstone Pancreatitis.

While not ALWAYS indicitive of alcoholism, alcohol abuse is a leading cause of the disease and alcoholics are more than predisposed to contracting it.

I'm sure the news outlets will be doing thorough FYI's in the coming days on related medical information for your health with the Ashcroft tie in, but I'm already seeing the push to debunk the alcohol/pancreatitis link.

Gallstones, gallstones, gallstones is the word being tossed around as they shorten the affliction to it's more palatable counterpart for a 61 year old man.

Some may even feel sympathy having had Kidney STONES themselves, but make no mistake in the actual diagnosis and most common root cause for the chronically serious disease of pancreatitis catching up to Ashcroft...

ALCOHOLISM.

But how, you may ask, could such an "in control" heavy handed, holier than thou person possibly be subject to the failings of alcohol abuse???


It's all classic addict behavior IMO furthering the assertions by some that Bush/Cheney/Ashcroft is hands down among the most dry drunk, single minded, fuzzy thinking DUI laden administration in US history. (Cheney has two DUI's and Bush has one we know of...)

I'm beginning to think a staff meeting in the White House must be like an AA meeting. They begin and end with a prayer with opinionated assholes talking in-between. (I can say that as an alcoholic.)

Welcome to the club Ashcroft.

Of course, we have no reason at all to think it's alcohol-related.

Gallstones are the leading cause, but its associated with alcoholism. Lots of 61 year olds get gallstones, saying it's because he's a drunk with no proof is a little specious at this point in time.

Yeah, honestly, that is just reaching. Say you have lung cancer and never had one cigarette. You have aids and are still a virgin. You have mono and never kissed anyone. You have back problems but don't have boobs. There is more than one way to get to a problem.

Still, the image of Shrub and Asscroft slamming down some beers and throwing darts on a world map is kind of scary, hehe....

It's also a little exciting. I mean, some of the best leaders in the world have been somewhat insane

I'm definitley NOT saying Ashcroft (or Bush or Cheney for that matter) drink now. In fact, I'm saying quite the opposite. They're all "reformed" drinkers... at least the DUI records of the top two indcate such.

And Ashcroft likely abused alcohol at some point in his life as well. Thus the "dry drunk" observation.

I'm certainly not stating provable fact, just highly likely statistical scenarios given the circumstances.

It is POSSIBLE Ashcroft never abused alcohol, or has an alcoholic mentality now (note that doesn't mean you still drink), but it is LIKELY he did and does.

Addicts/Alcoholics are among the most successful, intelligent people out there. So not a condemnation, just a possible observation.

I WISH Bush would use the "A" word regarding himself, but he won't. He says finding the Lord helped him beat alcohol, NOT he's an alcoholic... which in my opinion is a disservice for those that need recovery but feel shame, just like Bush apparently does.

So, where's he at... Walter Reed ??


**people might want to track medical shipments

I have a friend who has suffered from pancreatitis attacks throughout her life.
She is not now, nor has she ever been a big drinker or drugger. One drink is probably her max, alwyas.

Not saying Ashcroft's illness isn't related, but it is unfair to caste such aspersions without evidence, IMHO

Bingo!


You can't have your panties in a bunch over every thing & NOT have it affect you physically.
But the mental visual of him passing stones does bring a smile to my face!

Ashcroft takes pride in the fact that he is not a drinker. If in fact he were, which is highly suspect, it would be some sort of a scandal I imagine, and would be be blown up much bigger in the media. Its my opinion that either a)he just has a gallstone or b) aliens did it.

You decide.
