president punch

Get a Salon Day Pass and check out the story on Bush's bulge.

Speculation is that thing on his back was an antenna.  For an earpiece.  The picture is from Fox.  The electoral-vote.com saw it, too, and I'm going to go back to my NBC recording at some point tonight and see if they have the shot.  Bush, at one point, mysteriously inserted "let me finish" in a sentence...  I remember pointing this out during the debate.

Can we get to New Orleans soon enough to try to detect, and possibly spoof, this signal for tonight?  Imagine the power!  This possibility comes straight out of any number of horrendously bad modernized Cyrano de Bergerac ripoffs...
