Can any reader confirm or disconfirm this? Democratic Underground has been known to be somewhat … exhuberant … and I don’t know Walt Starr.
Update Matt Rustler of Stop the Bleating (which displaysa “Blogs for Bush” logo) does some additional reporting. It’s barely possible that Bush’s unit earned the ribbon while he was a member, which would have justified his wearing it. But Rustler acknowledges that Starr has raised legtimate questions to which, at the moment, no one has offered answers.
Obviously, Rustler has some learning to do about how to Blog for Bush. Questions about the Beloved Leader are to be ignored, not discussed.
As to the mainstream media, it will be fascinating to see if anyone bothers to ask Scott McClellan about this, let alone reporting on it. (The Telegraph mentions it briefly.)
