Battle of the Bulge

I've been willing to leave this one alone, since it smelled a bit too much of iffy Internet gossip. But it keeps on going (unlike Drudge's "magic pen" story), and keeps looking more credible. That doesn't mean I think it's a transmitter-- I have no idea what it is. But there's something there, and in all three debates. What's more, photos are surfacing of the mysterious bulge on several other occasions (the Crawford picture is especially eerie):

What's so strange about this is that the administration is only willing to say what it isn't-- namely a bullet-proof vest. Was there something more significant about that lack of a physical exam public record this year?
