Bush claimed to be sky-high in 1978
Lying about flying on his flyer
Democratic Underground has broken a story as surprising as it is, well, not surprising. The above clip comes from a newspaper ad for Dubya's 1978 bid for U.S. Congress. The underlined portion brags not only about Bush's TANG service (itself up for dispute), but also his proud service in the U.S. Air Force! Wha--?
Damn, it's been hard enough tracking down people to verify Bush's service in the Alabama National Guard in 1972-73! Now we have to debunk this lie also? Jeez, George, we have enough ammo already, thanks...
See the extensive thread, along with the full ad, here. For even more great fun, view the full-size copy and pretend you're a Texan in 1978, reading the newspaper and discovering the thrills of George W. Bush for the first time.
