According to this Reuters article, a portion of George W. Bush’s service records were destroyed while ‘trying to update records’ back in 1997. Which portion of the records, you ask? Well, the portion that would prove or disprove that Bush fufilled his service requirements in 1973. I call Bullshit on this. Why is this the first anyone has heard of those records being destroyed? There has been no mention of them being destroyed during any of the innumerably news cycles this story has gone through.
So, in honor of this occasion, I present to you a Transbuddha first*: Caption the following photo of Bush and a small child.
No, you won’t win anything…but you’ll feel better about yourself knowing we love you.
(* no, it’s not really a first. More like a third)
