Ok, so I've been looking at the photographs that show the bulge in the back of the president's suit, and the feeds from different networks at different times show the same thing, so its definitely not photoshopped. But there's definitely something there. I don't know about the credence of a device used to transmit audio, but to those who believe its so, go to cspan.org and check out Bush response around 40 minutes and 40 seconds into the debate. He pauses with about 20 or so seconds remaining in his response, looking directly at the CSPAN3 live camera, and says 'Let me finish' kind of under his breath-- he's not addressing Jim Leher the moderator because he'd have to be looking significantly to his left in order to do so (the podiums are angled more towards each other, and not directly at the moderator, as is the custom). Go look at this-- it'll take 30 seconds. Who is he talking to? He's addressing neither Jim Leher (who wouldn't have interupted him anyway, he had 20+ seconds remaining) nor John Kerry. It does actually seem like he's slipped and has addressed someone who had begun to speak to him over a microphone. The bulge in his back, the GOP insistance of having no cameras BEHIND the debators, and Bush's long pauses where he seemed to be off in his own world, lead me to believe something fishy was going on. Its been documented that reporters got microphone interference from a prompting device during bush's speech and during the Q&A session at the D-Day memorial in France. Its not a new occurence. Anyway since we entertained 'pengate' I think this deserves more mention that it has gotten on this board.
