So what did they want him to wear, a tuxedo?

Read Dan from Happy Fun Pundit on the reasons why it was good that the president flew the plane, and then shut up. Please. (Though far be it from me to abridge your free speech rights -- go right ahead and keep on talking about how a dangerous stunt like that was merely a cynical campaign photo op, or that he was all "Third World Massa" acting, or whatever your damage is. Just so long as you don't mind sounding stupid.)

I really am getting sick of some things.

I believe it was more a measure of respect for the military than a photo-op. It is too far out from the election to have an impact.

I also (personally) believe that govt. property was not removed from the ship. There was an episode in the last administration where the boys and girls visiting an aircraft carrier acted like a bunch of U.N. staffers in the cafeteria.

I know that, Bill. I was being sarcastic towards the critics with the "photo-op" line. And where did I say anything about anyone removing stuff from the aircraft carrier? Are you replying to my post, or one on someone else's blog?

It's too bad there aren't any photos from when Bush was suppose to be serving in the Alabama National Guard.

How do you know there aren't? Are you his valet?
