    You can bash Bush for getting a cushy assignment in the champagne division of TANG but at least he served. True he was AWOL and never completed the terms of his service but he didn't spend the war in a French chateau at a time when many other (read less privileged) Mormon boys still had to serve and were not granted a religious exemption. I still don't understand why he couldn't have served as a chaplain or something. Al Gore wrote for Stars and Stripes (being an actual Senator's son) but he was in Vietnam, not defending the air space of Texas from a non-existent threat.
