Daft Draft

Elizabeth Gettelman at Mother Jones blog has this from President Bush's interview on 60 Minutes:

But the toll it's taking on soldiers, pushed Pelley, who then referenced Bush's brief service in the National Guard for comparison. "It was different then," answered Bush. "This is a volunteer army; I was drafted."

For someone who doesn't like revisionist history, that's a pretty significant revision of his own history. In fact, Bush avoided the draft by joining the Texas Air National Guard.
