Bush and the NG
Here is a good summary of coverage of the whole Bush's National Guard duty non-story. SOP for the AP is to revel in the "political storm that has showed no sign of abating," before finally coming up for breath and acknowledging in an aside that there is "no sign that Bush received special treatment either to get into the Guard when there were long waiting lists at the height of the Vietnam War or to be discharged from it nearly eight months before his six-year service obligation was completed in order to attend Harvard Business School; that he was subject to any disciplinary action while in the military; or that damaging details were hidden in his medical record." Why is anyone still talking about this?

Note: Shouldn't that be "has shown no sign of abating?"
