Not that this should be shocking…

…but I thought I’d pass it along anyway. It’s an article about the medals and honours that Bush claims to have earned during his time as an Air National Guardsman in Texas and how it’s rather difficult to prove that he was actually eligible/received either of them (yes, either of them: there were only two). For comparison, it also lists the awards and honours that Kerry earned whilst actually serving in Vietnam (all 13 of them, as I counted).

Not that this election should have anything to do with who has more military honours, but the fact that they can’t even seem to prove that Bush at least managed to earn a Texas Faithful Service Medal, which is awarded ‘just for showing up’ on a consistent basis, is a bit bothersome.
