  •  The Payoff - Best Indication of AWOL Truth (none)
    Motive and benefit are useful indicators of something big and stinky.  The fact that Bush is paying such a clearly inappropriate choice, given the many others he could choose who are qualified, with this plum assigment to watch his back until death do them part - is the most obvious confirmation that the AWOL controversy was not only real but also one of the biggest concerns of this President during his run for re-election.

    The fact is, Republicans support law-breaking, corrupt, cowardly cronies to maintain an elite system that rewards loyalty, regardless of competence.  Katrina, Iraq, - the fact is, they can't even level with themselves on this garbage.

    I think a "Payback for AWOL cover-up" meme is certainly in order.  It confirms so much of the other garbage, and works quite well to explain this ridiculous pick and the way the Republican mind works.  Reform starts from within.

    The hearings should be fun, let's just hope our "fearless" leaders get some balls - before it's too late.
