    Another day, another conspiracy theory

    The Mystery of the Bulge in the Jacket
    By ELISABETH BUMILLER

    Published: October 9, 2004


    WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 - What was that bulge in the back of President Bush's suit jacket at the presidential debate in Miami last week?

    According to rumors racing across the Internet this week, the rectangular bulge visible between Mr. Bush's shoulder blades was a radio receiver, getting answers from an offstage counselor into a hidden presidential earpiece. The prime suspect was Karl Rove, Mr. Bush's powerful political adviser.

    When the online magazine Salon published an article about the rumors on Friday, the speculation reached such a pitch that White House and campaign officials were inundated with calls.

    First they said that pictures showing the bulge might have been doctored. But then, when the bulge turned out to be clearly visible in the television footage of the evening, they offered a different explanation.

    "There was nothing under his suit jacket," said Nicolle Devenish, a campaign spokeswoman.

    "It was most likely a rumpling of that portion of his suit jacket, or a wrinkle in the fabric."

    Ms. Devenish could not say why the "rumpling" was rectangular.

    Nor was the bulge from a bulletproof vest, according to campaign and White House officials; they said Mr. Bush was not wearing one.

    Wrong, its a control machine. If it were to be destroyed, Bush would become an out of control mutant freak who would breathe fire and shoot lasers from his eyes.

    Does Bush plan to breathe fire and shoot lasers at Kerry in the third debate? Now that would be an "October surprise."
    I can just see the debate now.....Kerry makes a point on a domestic policy issue. The moderator tells Bush that he has thirty seconds to respond. Bush vaporizes Kerry with a laser blast............

    This was initially started by Salon.com (who also tried their best to give credibility to the Dan Rather story).

    Nuff said.

    I think it could be a Manzere or Bro invented by Kramer.

    Re: Another day, another conspiracy theory

    It's been solved!! I found this at one of my favorite "left-leaning" sites, which would never fabricate stories. It's his Power Pack...

    Lost In Washington D.C. - The Power Pack
    WASHINGTON, Oct. 10 - What was that bulge in the back of President Bush's suit jacket at the presidential debate in Miami last week? According to rumors racing across the Internet this week, the rectangular bulge visible between Mr. Bush's shoulder blades was a Power Pack, which keeps the president functioning. The prime suspect was Dick Cheney, Mr. Bush's powerful and evil vice president.

    Inside sources have revealed that Dick Cheney is actually an intergalactic doctor of governmental psychology and an agent for an enemy foreign government. Cheney is known to change his appearance between his true identity and the look the world knows as Dick Cheney.

    Prior to the George W. Bush’s run for U.S. President and after serving in Pres. George H. Bush’s cabinet, Cheney programmed a robot and surgically made it look like Bush. He then kidnapped Bush and secretly put the robot in his place. He had programmed “Bush” to destroy the earth eight hours after his inauguration. While making last minute adjustments to ensure a successful sabotage, Cheney becomes trapped when he asked to be vice president. The plan is thrown off course by Cheney’s dilemma. Despite being fully aware of Cheney’s evil intentions, GOP leaders allow Cheney to remain with them in their quest to lower high-income taxes and gain control of the Earth.

    Although Democrats constantly bash him for his actions and demeanor, Cheney remains in control. Cheney is a chronic schemer and haphazard button pusher. He is also known for repeatedly unleashing war and illegal governmental contracts, and has a secret "love/hate" relationship with the robot (Bush) whom he constantly berates with insults known as "Cheneyisms".
