    the Cove Herald

    the Cove Herald is a special news organization, because they're able to print a story like this with absolutely no trace of irony. i prefer to think that the journalist and editors were fully aware, but were able to print this with a straight face and disarming calm.

    after all, sitting atop their Headlines section is New Comfort Inn coming by summer.

    I was searching all over the site for signs that it's satire, but sadly, didn't find any :(

    Well, he is Commander-in-Chief, head of the armed forces, so any injury he suffers in that capacity could be deemed as a combat injury.

    Maybe he was awarded it for suffering a nasty paper cut.

    Nothing about this makes any sense. Buah doesnt deserve a medal he deserves a kick in the ... for getting us in a needless war and letting Bin Laden get away. Bush is responsible for thousands and thousands dead by his pen? Im confused.

    My name is Thomas Veil, and I'm with Swift Forum Veterans for Truth, and I'm here to say that I was present when the whole thing went down, and I can say unequivocally that Bush doesn't deserve that medal.

    ;)

    Sorry, but he received his brain damage at birth, not while in office.

    Wow. Way to devalue a medal Bill. I bet all the other recipients feel all the pain and suffering was especially worth it now :cool:

    If this was an onion.com story I'd laugh.

    Since it's not, I'll choose bemusement.

    Must be some mistake - probably got it mixed up with the white feather.
