"A Texas C***sman" in Alabama

Via Blah3, James Ridgeway at the Village Voice apparently found someone who would talk about Bush's time in Alabama when he was supposed to be working on a family friend's campaign and reporting to the Alabama Air National Guard. What this person has to say isn't very flattering:

In Alabama, where George W. Bush supposedly was slaving away on Winton "Red" Blount's 1972 U.S. Senate campaign in lieu of National Guard duty, he is remembered by a Blount son as a smartass "cuntsman" from Texas.
The other people who spoke apparently weren't any more impressed than Blount's son - except apparently a gaggle of southern belle debutantes also working on the campaign who thought Bush Jr. was "dreamy."

The article doesn't have much to say about whether or not Bush ever made it his drills on the weekends, just that he bragged about how much he'd drunk the nights before. But if they can find someone who remembers him at campaign headquarters, it shouldn't be that hard to find someone who remembers him on base.

Unless he was never there...
