Character matters

Bill at INDC Journal picks out the salient point of the latest Kerry fabrication.

Kerry manufactured meetings out of whole cloth and then presented them as justification for a serious contradiction of George Bush's decision to go to war.

He did something very similar when he previously recited a false story on the Senate floor about an illegal mission into Cambodia, using it as a basis for criticism of Ronald Reagan's intent to provide aid to the Nicaraguan contras.

These aren't exaggerations. This isn't a case of lying about sex. It's a story about a man that's pathological enough to look a nationally televised audience of 55 million people in the eye and tell them a manufactured story, and then use it to propose a conclusion about a deadly serious matter of foreign policy.

But does he keep a magic sock from Kofi Annan in his briefcase?

This is a pattern of Kerry behavior - manufacturing evidence to support a worldview - that has endured for three decades. We can't let this man near the White House.

You know it and I know it. With the country split half way down the middle, there's 45-48% who don't give a damn if Kerry misquotes from Shakespeare. They'll buy it hook, line, and sinker. Kerry's veracity has been challenged every step of the way, yet his cardboard quality wavers on with the help of hacks such as NYT, Boston Globe and a sordid cast of others. I really don't see today's Wash. Times story on the fabricated UN Security Council meeting causing people to take pause. Hell, were too use to it by now, nothing shocks anymore.
