The New York Times reports today on the hue and cry in the blogosphere regarding the mysterious bulge in Bush’s jacket during the first debate.

First they [campaign and White House officials] said that pictures showing the bulge might have been doctored. But then, when the bulge turned out to be clearly visible in the television footage of the evening, they offered a different explanation.

And Bush accuses Kerry of being wishy-washy!

“There was nothing under his suit jacket,” said Nicolle Devenish, a campaign spokeswoman.

“It was most likely a rumpling of that portion of his suit jacket, or a wrinkle in the fabric.”

Ms. Devenish could not say why the “rumpling” was rectangular.

Nor was the bulge from a bulletproof vest, according to campaign and White House officials; they said Mr. Bush was not wearing one.

So the question remains… Was there a bit of Milli-Vanilli action going on during the first debate? Or not? And if not, what was that bulge?
