The buck stops in the rats' nest

AP is still on the trail of Bush's missing National Guard records. And lordy, who'da thought -- they keep finding more!

But even when the government insisted in sworn affidavits that all documents about Bush had been made public last month, AP persisted and won permission to allow two law professors to review boxes of files in Texas to make sure nothing was missed.

The professors found dozens of pages of new memos overlooked in the government's searches. The government's only explanation was that dust and rat excrement in the boxes made it hard to review the files.

Our president's military service, obscured by rat excrement. Speaks for itself, doesn't it?

And listen, "goverment," rat shit doesn't make it "hard" to sift through a stack of papers; it just makes it "gross." But you really should deal with the gross factor if you're going to take an oath that you looked through everything.

For heaven's sake, couldn't they just clean out the rat shit first? Or is the rat shit classified material?
