Bulge on Bush's Back?

What is that huge bulge on the President’s upper back that was noted on both of his debates with Sen. Kerry? I thought perhaps some bullet proof vest but I have no idea.

The alien parasite that controls him.

The stick up his ass is making a break for it.

Do you have a photo (I didn’t see the debate).

:rolleyes: to you two above me :wink:

It’s clearly some sort of secret time-looping device, because I swear I’d read all of these questions–and one-liners–before …

It’s the cocaine monkey on his back.
someone had to say it

He’s a hunchback. Like Richard III.

I’ll try to provide a factual answer. I haven’t seen a photo, but I believe it’s for the wireless battery pack and trasceiver for the lapel microphone.

In the wide angle photo shots of both debates I didn’t see any overhead boom microphones, and I don’t believe the candidates had microphones in front of them. Again, I haven’t seen photos, but if the candidates were wearing lapel microphones, a cord would have run from the microphone to the battery pack and transceiver which would have been clipped to his belt near his back.

This is from the NY Times: Mystery of the Bulge . (There’s a photo clearly showing a rectangular thing on the upper part of his back under his jacket.)

Since this is currently being discussed in another forum, I’ll close this thread and direct further comment to the GD thread, linked to above.
