Salon reports that Dr. Robert M. Nelson, a NASA research scientist who is currently involved in analyzing digital photos of Titan, agrees with me that Dubya’s back bulge cannot be due to a bad suit or a wrinkled shirt. Nelson went as far as wrinkling his own shirts in an attempt to recreate the infamous bulge. His conclusion:

I’m putting myself at risk for exposing this. But this is too important. It’s not about my reputation. If they force me into an early retirement, it’ll be worth it if the public knows about this. It’s outrageous statements that I read that the president is wearing nothing under there. There’s clearly something there.

Bruce Hapke, Professor Emeritus of Planetary Science in the Department of Geology and Planetary Science at the University of Pittsburgh, reviewed the Bush images employed by Nelson. He agrees that the bulge is not a wrinkled shirt.

[Nelson’s processes are the] exact same methods we use to analyze images taken by spacecraft of planetary surfaces. It does not introduce any artifacts into the picture in any way.

[…] I would think it’s very hard to avoid the conclusion that there’s something underneath his jacket. It would certainly be consistent with some kind of radio receiver and a wire.

Dubya cheats. But then we’ve known that since the 2000 election.

The article is worth sitting through the ad if you don’t subscribe to Salon.

  • Thought of the Minute
    • The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.
