The definitive proof.

According to a document that the White House found Wednesday but mysteriously never released in the past when they were ordered to do so...

George W. Bush left the Air Force, claiming that he had "inadequate time" to serve his country.

Sorry to hear that serving his country... in a cushy Air Force position... at home... during a time of war... was such a burden on him.

As Bush said about a dozen times last night, "It's hard work...".

Quick! Someone get that soldier a mineral water and some cracked crab!

When the news isn't.

This morning, Fox News ran a story on their website's front page with several post-debate quotes by John Kerry, including:

"Didn't my nails and cuticles look great?"

"Women should like me! I do manicures!"


and...

"I'm metrosexual -- he's a cowboy."

Which would be incredibly damaging to John Kerry's campaign, of course... had he actually said any of them.

They were made up by FoxNews employee and chief political correspondent, Carl Cameron. Fake. Fraudulent. Phony. Libelous. This isn't a case where FoxNews was tricked by counterfeit documents that seemed to check out, sent to them by a person who deceived them... this is a case where their own reporter manufactured quotes -- lies -- about a candidate for the most powerful office in the world.

This is the same "Fair and Balanced" reporter who kissed Bush's ass during an interview, talking about how chummy his wife has gotten with Bush's sister while working for his campaign... and now this?!

There's no going home.

The US Army, now in the process of doing the "back door draft" to 5,600 soldiers who have already left the military, has announced they're going to call back a similar number next year.

This depends, of course, on whether they can meet their recruiting goals. If they can't, then expect them to call back even more.

Nothing says love like tearing a soldier away from his family to serve their second, third, or fourth tour-of-duty in Iraq or Afghanistan, eh?! It's kinda like Doritos.

"Crunch all you want. We'll make more..."
