Matt Yglessias and Citizen Smash were just on the Hugh Hewitt show. The discussion centered mainly on John Kerry’s Vietnam records and whether his statement on Meet The Press Sunday that he’d already released the records, when he in fact just released them today, was a lie that was going to be a big issue in the campaign. Matt and Smash were both rather adamant that there didn’t seem to be much to it, but Hewitt persisted for the entire segment.
Unless there’s some monumental revelation forthcoming here, this is a decided non-issue. I think Kerry’s flip-flopping will be a cornerstone of the Bush campaign and could well stick. This particular instance is less than trivial, though. And, as has been pointed out here and elsewhere, one doesn’t have to be greviously injured to get a Purple Heart.
