    This should have happened much earlier, but finally the MSS is beginning to wake up. While the past few months have brought a few colums about these sources, most have been condescending, I guess hoping that they would go away, quietly into the night. This weekend there was one more 'hit' about guys sitting in the pajamas and writing-which is why you'll see lots of pajama references:

    Found this interesting little tidbit while mousing around on the site you provided. Have not verified it, but it is interesting:

    The 19 May 1972 memo CBS purportedly discovered says:

    “1. Phone call from Bush....... Says that he is working on another campaign for his dad.”

    “2. Physical .... He has this campaign to do and other things that will follow and may not have time.....”

    But according to George Herbert Walker Bush’s biography:

    “Following an unsuccessful bid for a Senate seat in 1964, Mr. Bush was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1966 from Texas’ 7th District. One of the few freshman members of Congress ever elected to serve on the Ways and Means Committee, he was reelected to the House two years later without opposition. Mr. Bush lost a second campaign for the Senate in 1970.”

    “During the 1970’s, Mr. Bush held a number of important leadership positions. In 1971, he was named U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. He served there until 1973, when he became Chairman of the Republican National Committee. ”

    Since his dad was Ambassador to the United Nations at the time this memo was supposed to have been written, just what was this campaign that George W. Bush was supposed to be working on in 1972?
