A Made-up Musing
The eyewitness muse blog conjured up this "report":
"A White House already reeling from a “God awful” federal response to Hurricane Katrina, chaos in Iraq, and plummeting poll numbers received another blow today when President Bush was ordered to report to Montgomery, Alabama immediately to resume his incomplete National Guard service."
"The Guard, facing a crisis of its own due to over-deployment and under-enlistment is scouring its records to identify former guardsmen with dubious service histories so they can be pressed back into duty. The move was necessitated when the guard was asked to deploy massive aid to hurricane-stricken regions and discovered that the “cupboard was bare.”"
"Pentagon computer experts identified prospects by doing a Google search on the terms, “National Guard,” “skipped requirements,” “accomplished nothing” and “left early.” The President’s name was said to be the first on the search results."
Well, I can confirm one thing about this "report."
If you Google search “National Guard,” “skipped requirements,” “accomplished nothing” and “left early” Bush's name, indeed, is the first result at a Website called AWOLBUSH.com.
