President George W. Bush is taking powerful anti-depressant drugs to control his erratic behavior, depression and paranoia, Capitol Hill Blue has learned.

The prescription drugs, administered by Col. Richard J. Tubb, the White House physician, can impair the President's mental faculties and decrease both his physical capabilities and his ability to respond to a crisis, administration aides admit privately.

"It's a double-edged sword," says one aide. "We can't have him flying off the handle at the slightest provocation but we also need a President who is alert mentally."

Tubb prescribed the anti-depressants after a clearly-upset Bush stormed off stage on July 8, refusing to answer reporters' questions about his relationship with indicted Enron executive Kenneth J. Lay.

"Keep those motherfuckers away from me," he screamed at an aide backstage. "If you can't, I'll find someone who can."

In the latest episode, Vice President Dick Cheney told Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. to "fuck off" on the Senate floor where members had gathered for a group photo. "I was kind of shocked to hear that kind of language on the floor," Leahy said of the incident this week.

Maybe he shouldn't have been. Just days before, Senate Judiciary Committee Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, had referred to a proposal by Leahy to subpoena Justice Department memos on prisoner interrogation as a "dumb-ass" idea.

Cheney, interviewed by Fox News Friday, said he had no regrets about his remarks to Leahy and "I felt better after I said it." He added, "A lot of my colleagues felt what I said badly needed to be said."

These parasites masquerading in tailored suits and valet-polished shoes, waiting for their limos . . .

Cheney - the perpetually recycled Nixonian satrap stooge who has devoted his miserable useless, uninspired life, working his way up the public feed trough, dutifully carrying his attache case full of peanut butter sandwiches his entire adult life, learning the ins and outs of corrupt government, crimes against humanity and corporate processes . . .

the runt of the litter, bu$h the lesser - cut-up and class clown, brat substance abuser and slacker, shuttled from one step-parent institution and set of corporate minders to another, until he stumbles on political schtik that favors his bullying megalomania, one-dimensional mental processes, withered, necrotic conscience and paranoia, and is correspondingly discovered as a programmable puppet, who will read any lie and hold any persona, as long as he gets a salute . . .
