I don't think its nonsense, especially from a sartorial point-of-view, since most people on the forum know that there is no way a "˜bulge' could be formed in that way by either a poorly tailor suit / shirt (and than the galls of the neo-cons to suggest that the president would wear such badly tailored clothing is a huge insult to the American public; which in turn says something for the gullibility of the public and their lack of sartorial knowledge). I was never for John Kerry, just anti-Bush. Jon.
I am not pro-Bush either, by "nonsense" I just meant that the idea that the idea that the President of the United States would have a big, bulky radio transmission device attached to the middle of his back during a debate is somewhat ridiculous. Â Even if one accepts the possibility of him wearing a transmitter/receiver, there are tiny, wireless devices that fit entirely into the ear with no other equipment necessary. Â I'm sure that the President has access to the best miniature spy technology in the world and that he wouldn't need to pick up some bulky box-like contraption at Radio Shack. Moreover, even if whatever equipment he was using required a box-like device, it would obviously be placed in a less conspicuous place than the middle of the back (such as the chest pocket). Â That said, I think the explanation provided by the White House regarding his suit was plainly ridiculous, and I'm surprised his tailor went along with it. Â The bulge was almost certainly part of some sort of security outfit, with a small chance that it was some type of medical device.
