bush's golfing sacrifice

Yesterday in dissing de facto President Bush for giving up golf in solidarity with dead GIs, I predicted there would be a leak showing it was a knee problem that was the actual reason.

It wasn't a leak - but VetVoice found this old 2003 CBS News story that says, yes, Bush had significant knee problems in December 2003. That was the problem that made him switch from running to break-neck bicycling. And that is the sort of problem that would make it tough to play golf too.

There you have it. His "sacrifice" in wartime was a medical necessity. That would be like somebody who had both legs amputated giving up Gucci shoes as a sacrifice.
