Jerome Doolittle makes a great observation about today’s front page NYT story on the medical deferment that kept Howard Dean out of Vietnam: The character issue.
Digression: I especially like the image he used to illustrate the item. Heh. You know, I sincerely do not believe those are George Bush’s real balls. I don’t really care enough to make an issue out of it, and yeah, they certainly could be real. But if so they’re definitely the jumbo-economy size. So which seems more likely: That Bush just happens to have a really prominent package? Or that his image team had the great idea of stuffing a sock in his shorts to underscore the manly look they were after?
