The Battle of the Bulge, Ended

And so it was. The final mystery (other than the result) of election 2004 has been solved. Sources in the Secret Service have let it be known that the bulge in W’s jacket during the first debate was a strap that holds his bullet-proof vest in place.

Now totally debunked are Georges de Paris’ conclusion that the bulge was caused by a pucker along the seam of the jacket and the guarantee from George of America that it was nothing more than his shirt bunching up. In the spirit of full disclosure, this also puts to rest my own theory that W simply forgot to remove the coat hanger from his jacket before putting in on.

Now, the only question that remains is how Rove sent scrambled radio signals to W through a bullet-proof vest…

Concentration is important!
