Spiegel Online prints a photo from the SECOND debate showing odd stuff under Bush's jacket.
The campaign denies Bush had any sort of help during the debate. I believe this: Bush didn't do well enough to have had help. So these strange wrinkles are either a coincidence, a medical device of some sort (why no physical this year?), or — perhaps — body armor?
Meanwhile, Jay Leno asked John Edwards last night what Edwards thought the bulge was. Edwards suggested it was Bush's battery. He also proposed the candidates be patted down before the third debate. I think he was joking.
