What bliss...

I'm really enjoying the forgery scandal. I've heard so many stories over the years of bullying and falsehoods and bias from Dan Rather and 60-Minutes. How richly that pompous phony deserves to be humbled.

Of course this whole attack on Bush is actually plain stupid, if you just look at the timeline. It's like the difference between a soldier slacking-off in 1943, and doing the same in 1947! If they had an accusation that Bush missed duty in 1968, when he joined, that would at least be the germ of a story. But everybody was easing off after 1972. We were out of the war then.

I hear that the poor Dems are trying to float the story that the forgeries were political dirty tricks created by Karl Rove. No way. Rove would have used a typewriter, at the very least. He's about my age, and remembers typewriters perfectly well. It's got to be someone young. Young and stupid. Hmmm, we may have the beginnings of a profile...

* Update: here's a link to an animated GIF that superimposes an MS Word version over the purported 1970's memo. Lovely, lovely, just lovely...
