Did Bush wear an ear piece or not…

Just picked this up from David Steven’s etecera blog. It’s all supposition and likely to remain so as it can’t be verified or conclusively refuted after the fact. Kerry has just endured several days of bad press when he pulled a pen out during the debate, and rumour had it was an attempt to consult crib notes.

    Things come in threes 😉 Could this be the elusive third British Bug ?

    We are supposed to be in the 21st century, does anyone really believe that a cable that looks to be 1/2″ thick is required for an ear piece.

    All the latest ones are cordless … the president could even have an implant if he wanted to.

    Just more propaganda and conspiracy…..

    Recent images of Bush show him to be less slimline than usual. I think he might have cut back on the exercise a bit.

    Has anyone contemplated the possibility that he may have been wearing a bra?

    Interesting point slacjaw. I beleive however that North Americans call it a “bro” or perhaps a Manzier.

    Salon.com had an interesting analysis on this subject.

    Here’s the answer.

    “A forensic scientist studying photographic evidence has identified an object which caused a bump on the back of a suit jacket worn by President George Bush during his first debate with John Forbes Kerry.

    “It’s a spine,” said the unnamed scientist. “The president’s backbone, in a sense, was showing during his debate with Mr. Kerry.”

    Similar images of Mr. Kerry showed “no comparable spinal features.”

    When asked about the new evidence, Mr. Kerry said, “I had a spine when I defended this country as a young man, and I will have one again when I defend her as president of the United States.”

    This is Private Eye’s take on the matter!

    Salon’s War Room quoted Bush’s flack catcher thusly,

    Pressed for a “legitimate explanation,” Mehlman said: “The president is an alien. You heard it here first. The president is an alien. That’s your quote of the day. He has been getting information from Mars. The shock of the debate will be the president’s alien past will be exposed, which is why that box is there.”

    Works for me.

    Then again, Dubya’s sliding numbers could have made him go Martin instead of Negative:

    Georg at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue and Yortuk at 1526 H St. in Sacramento.

    James could you explain that last post ?

  • James

    Damn, that should have been 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the White House. The other one is the address of the California Governor’s mansion.

  • Davros

    Ah 🙂
