Bill Maher has an interesting post on his website on the whole whether-or-not-the-president-did-his-military-time question.

he points out that GW often tries to portray the folks interested in getting to the bottom of this question as besmirching the national guard. well, consider this: in the vietnam era, 0.03% of the troops were from the national guard, today, in iraq, they compose 22% of the troops. maher points out that GW's guard was clearly a different insitution than the national guard of today.

also, colin powell says in his biography: “I am angry that so many of the sons of the powerful and well placed managed to wrangle slots in Reserve and National Guard units”
