9. So was John Muhammad
I don't usually borrow someone else's talking points, and this doesn't mean a damn thing. But neither does Bush constantly squawking about his stupid honorable discharge. For one thing, even Dan Bartlett is no longer denying that Bush did not register with a Massachusetts unit after leaving Alabama for Harvard. So how could Bush possibly have gotten a valid honorable discharge without some kind of favored treatment not available to the general public?

If he could get into a unit over a waiting list; if he could go to Alabama without a transfer order; if he could just stop flying on his own say-so; if he could ignore an order to get a flight physical; if he could skip mandatory training; if he could just pick up and leave to go to Massachusetts and never sign up with a unit there - then getting an honorable discharge he didn't really deserve would not be all that much more difficult, would it?
