Doug Wead, an author who was an aide to the former President Bush, has released secretly recorded tapes of his conversations with GW Bush when GW was Governor of Texas and contemplating a run for the White House.

Memorable moments: Bush indicates he smoked pot and says he won't answer questions about his drug usage, and, Bush thought John Ashcroft should either be a Supreme Court Justice or his Vice-Presidential candidate.

Update: Don't miss Roger Ailes (not that one) Wead Smokes Bush. [Via Memeorandum]

The conservatives are going crazy. I think there's a new Linda Tripp
