Documented... A forward commandeered and dipped in red:
"When I first received the message forwarded below, I checked the internet for what I knew to be the ORIGINAL of this picture. In this opening message, I am copying and pasting this article from Armchair Generalist blog from August 2005.
At the bottom of that page is found this article (and there were many others at the time) which shows the picture of Bill Moyer, age 73, wearing his BULLSHIT PROTECTOR flag for President Bush, at the VFW convention in August 2005.
The person who forwarded the below email to me is a sadly “in the middle” person who gets this stuff and sends it on frequently without checking it out. I sent him this info too and your site so he can check better in the future. Thought you might be interested in adding this to your ‘HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON” section in that the right wing crazies are now determined to apply this poor man’s protest to her instead of Bush."

I just had to show this picture. I guess not all the VFW guys are supporters of President "I dodged Vietnam" Bush. The caption to this article reads "Bill Moyer, 73, wears a "Bullshit Protector" flap over his ear while President George W. Bush addresses the Veterans of Foreign Wars."
I love this guy. Hat tip to kos for the article.
HERE IS THE EMAIL FORWARDED TO ME THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE ABOVE DISCUSSION:

You've got to love our Veterans...
