Who's Your Daddy

In what has become predictable -- as far as Team Bush's rank desperation goes -- Friday's docudumpIhopenoonenoticesholyfuck! doesn't dissapoint.

Pappa Bush wrote to a General about Georgie McFlightsuit:
The Pentagon on Friday released more documents on President Bush's Vietnam-era Air National Guard Service, including a letter from his then-congressman father George Bush thanking a general for "taking interest in a brand new Air Force trainee."

Dozens of pages of documents, including historical records of the Air Guard unit in which Bush served, were released on orders from the White House.

General Greene, this is a personal letter but I did want to write to you from the heart and thank you for what you, Sgt. (Henry) Onacki and the others are doing, and obviously doing well," (H.W.) Bush concluded.

*wink wink*
At the White House, Buchan was asked why the Bush Vietnam-era documents have been released in batches at different times and whether more could be expected.
"The Pentagon has been undertaking, at the president's direction, a very comprehensive review of the documents," she said. "We've been told that they believe they have identified all the documents."

A top Democratic Party official reacted with skepticism, saying that the latest release of documents was the fifth since Bush had promised in 2000 to deliver them.

"More documents, no answers. It's time for this White House to come clean and release all of the President's National Guard records, once and for all," Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe said in a statement.

"If the president was truly proud of his service he wouldn't be releasing these documents on a Friday night. These documents demonstrate yet again that George Bush was a fortunate son who received special consideration unavailable to the average American."

Meanwhile, Kerry's smellin' like a rose. The Navy's top gun investigator sez our guy earned his medals the honorable way.
Our examination found that existing documentation regarding the Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart medals indicates the awards approval process was properly followed," Route wrote in the memo sent Friday to Navy Secretary Gordon England.

"In particular, the senior officers who awarded the medals were properly delegated authority to do so. In addition, we found that they correctly followed the procedures in place at the time for approving these awards."
