“Moderate” Kevin Drum is questioning the “transmitter under Bush’s suit” nonsense. For those in the fever swamps, Drum states:
The White House flatly denies it, and I guess I don’t believe it either. Salon thinks this picture is proof positive that Bush was wired during the second debate, but that’s a little too far out there for me.
But if it’s not a transmitter hidden under Bush’s jacket, what the hell is it? It’s no suit pucker, that’s for sure. There’s something there, and it’s a square about six inches on a side.
Some kind of back brace? Doesn’t seem like it. A medical thingamajig of some kind? Could be, I guess. Is that why Bush decided to skip his annual physical this year? So he doesn’t have to fess up to some kind of health problem during the campaign?
Notice how his left arm is raised Kevin? Now. Repeat after me: SHOULDER BLADE.
