No High School Diploma? Well, just say you are a graduate of some Christian High School, and it’™ll work out. Drug problem? They’™ll help you with the cup-pissing routine. At least, that’™s what happened when the army tried to recruit David McSwane, of Denver.

I’™m hearing from the Repubs that faked WMD evidence and ethics investigations against Tom DeLay, complaints against faked newscasts and the Valerie Plame affair, all those dishonesty problems that folks like us complain about concerning the Bush Administration. . . the Republicans say those are all partisan complaints. No, they’™re real, and the dishonesty of the Bush Administration is beginning to seep into everything, all the way down to the recruiting of soldiers. This isn’™t just desparation to get quotas, this is an ethical breakdown showing what business as usual for the Republicans can do to our once stellar all volunteer army.

How the heck did the Army recruiter decide on a fake high school for the kid that seemed so much like a Christian high school? Has the theocratic impulse of the Bushies really sunk so far into these institutions?
