O.J., all over again...

We all know O.J. did it (killed his wife); we all know Bush didn't (fulfill his Guard duty). So, it looks like Memogate is turning out to be a lot like Mark Furman and the bloody gloves -- once again, a guilty man has been framed.

The secretary who supposedly would have written the memos is claiming that they are fake. However (and this is a huge however), she says, "The information in them is correct."
"But I doubt,'' she said, pausing, "it's not anything that I wrote because there are terms in there that are not used by Guards, the format wasn't the way we did it. It looks like someone may have read the originals and put that together. We did discuss Bush's conduct and it was a problem Killian was concerned about," Mrs. Knox said. "I think he was writing the memos so there would be some record that he was aware of what was going on and what he had done." But, she said, words like "billets," which appear in the memorandums, were not standard Guard terms.


Can we move on now and simply acknowledge the fact that Bush failed to maintain "satisfactory participation" with his Guard unit which should have led to his "being transferred to active duty, and the possibility of being sent to Vietnam"?

...according to the Bush records released by the White House, he failed to meet the required "48 scheduled inactive duty training period days" in both 1972 and 1973. Bush showed up for duty so infrequently during those two years that his commanders couldn't complete mandatory annual ratings of his service. Yet the son of a prominent political father faced no disciplinary action.


This, of course, is all denied by the White House. Good thing they're not lying about blowjobs...
