AN ALERT Georgia blogger nicknamed Buckhead, along with other Internet truth seekers who followed his lead, struck a telling blow at smug, unobjective anchor Dan Rather and his CBS TV 60 Minutes II by quickly analyzing and questioning the proportionally spaced fonts used in the so-called National Guard records of George W. Bush.
Buckhead a brilliant Atlanta attorney who spends many a wee hour on his computer surfing the blogosphere first challenged CBS in a posting on the FreeRepublic.com Web site.
I am saying these documents are forgeries, run through a copier for 15 generations to make them look old, he wrote barely four hours after Rathers Sept. 8 show unveiled its scoop. Within minutes, truth-seekers were using their Internet superhighway to further analyze the typefaces not known to have been used in 1972 typewriters to reinforce my friends suspicions and to tweak aggressive news outlets into doing some investigative reporting.
A few days later, as establishment media experts were finally weighing in against a defiant Rather (who apologized 10 days later), one exultant FreeRepublic.com groupie declared in a succinct posting: Buckhead for the U.S. Supreme Court!

"So lets hoist a cold one to Buckhead!
Hear, hear! As you say! Buckhead, the next Bud's for you!
I was at dinner last Friday and I made two toasts. The first was to the lady who had a birthday. The second toast was "All hail Buckhead."
So lets hoist a cold one to Buckhead! A competitive marketplace of information, opinion, analysis and questioning can only serve the truth and help inform the electorate. And it can do it pretty fast in the blogosphere these days. That is a big thang. by Phil Kent A BIG THANG!
Nice your Friends , all share the same interest!
A toast to Buckhead is very much in order. Also, a toast to INDC who is a blogger who had the first expert examine the fake memos shortly after Buckhead made his now famous post. Thank God for the internet!
A\special Georgia tribute to Buckhead, that only a Mass transplant can convey: Boy. Howdy.
For you Jim

As patriotic Americans, our sincere thanks to Jim Robinson and Buckhead. And because of such great men we shall always live free.
What has happened to Buckhead? I haven't seen him post for a while.
Good question, when is Buckhead coming back? Is he busy with movie deals? Speaking engagements? Come back buckhead...we need you. Didn't you know John Kerry is using cheat notes in debate.
