104. Oh, come on
They were clearly made using Microsoft Word in default setting, not by a 70's era typewriter that would be used by the National Guard.

I know my typography, I know my old typewriters. I also know the military is always behind the technology on basic secretary office equipment, and the National Guard gets the hand-me-downs from that.

There is no way in hell a simple secretary had a high-end proportional typesetting machine. Back then this technology was what book publishers and such would put down tens of thousands of dollars for. The Selectric Composer could do proportional, but not to this level of fineness, and such a secretary would be lucky to get a Selectric II, no way a Selectric Composer costing several thousand 1970s dollars.

Besides, all other memos found from the place around that time were on what was expected: regular fixed-width font typewriters.

"And you might be on the wrong board."

I'm supposed to go somewhere that reality doesn't touch, where people live in fantasy? Or should I stay on a board that deals in the real world?

It was quite obvious Bush did everything he could to get out of the war, and not even do the easy service he got himself into.

We didn't need a very poorly forged smoking gun to show it. It probably cost the election.
