This is sweet. The man named in a disputed memo as exerting pressure to "sugarcoat" George W. Bush's military record left the Texas Air National Guard a year and a half before the memo supposedly was written, his service record shows. Oops!

An order obtained by The Dallas Morning News shows that Col. Walter "Buck" Staudt was honorably discharged March 1, 1972.

CBS News reported this week that a memo in which Staudt was described as interfering with officers' negative evaluations of the future president's service was dated Aug. 18, 1973.

How can this be? Maybe Staudt snuck back in, even though he was discharged, and wrote the secret memo anyway? It's possible, in the sense that it's possible that Elvis is still alive.

The Dan is sinking faster than Kerry's hope of entering the White House and ain't that just swell? One more liberal talking head caught out.
