M...m...m...Mr. Vale?

Like Aaron Stampler (or was it Roy?), it seems that Incurious George also was able to "lose time," except that this is reality, what that was just a damn good movie. Apparently, the ranting that I've done for three years now continues to prove to be based in fact, as Salon reports on the truth behind Dumya's "lost year" while defending the mean skies of Texas from the Viet Cong air forces.

A snippet:
In the spring of 1972, George H.W. Bush phoned his friend and asked a favor: Could [Jimmy] Allison find a place on the Senate campaign he was managing in Alabama for his troublesome eldest son, the 25-year-old George W. Bush?

"The impression I had was that Georgie was raising a lot of hell in Houston, getting in trouble and embarrassing the family, and they just really wanted to get him out of Houston and under Jimmy's wing," Allison's widow, Linda, told me. "And Jimmy said, 'Sure.' He was so loyal."
