Re: Kerry’s Cold War Freeze

Josh is certainly right to say that what’s important is Kerry himself, not some obscure event in the past. But the “Cambodia” episode is all about Kerry today. It comes from his own contemporary mouth and is posted on his own website. And it’s pure fantasy. So the reason that Instapundit and Rogerlsimon and Powerline and the rest of the precious and wonderful bloggers are so agitated…is that it strongly suggests that Kerry is nuts. Today. Because he is inventing his own past. And that business about carrying the little cap around in his briefcase. Wow.
