Kerry's just plain nuts

Before last November's election I asked if John "Kerry's constant distortions, repeated errors and self-serving lies are something he has no conscious control over. That Kerry can't help himself because that's just the way he is."

This is borne out even more considering Kerry's apparent belief that he's a viable candidate for the Democrat's presidential nomination again in 2008.

All he has to do, perhaps he imagines, is improve his Senate attendance, sponsor or co-sponsor a few bills, staple Mz. Heinz's mouth shut, keep his face (ugh) and name in the limelight, not magically turn pumpkin orange at inopportune times, and sign that pesky SF-180.

''I have signed it," Kerry said. Then, he added that his staff was ''still going through it" and ''very, very shortly, you will have a chance to see it."
As Joan Vennochi also noted, "The devil is usually in the details. With Kerry, it's also in the dodges and digressions."

Now we know why it was so important for Kerry's staff to review the form he'd signed before it was sent in, and why -- contrary to Kerry's statement, ". . . very, very shortly, you will have a change to see it." -- a copy still hasn't been made available. It shows that Kerry is still refusing to allow public access to his military records.

On June 9 Thomas Lipscomb explained that just signing the form isn't enough:

[H]ow an SF 180 is filled out is as important as signing it.

The NY Sun reports:

The senator also agreed to allow the Los Angeles Times to see his full record, [Kerry aide] Mr. [David] Wade said yesterday. The spokesman did not respond to a question about why Mr. Kerry did not execute a broader release to all press organizations and the public. Asked whether the senator would permit release of the records to The New York Sun, Mr. Wade said, "The issue is over."

In a written statement, Mr. Kerry insisted that openness about his past was a hallmark of his presidential bid.
Pathological liar? Or is John Kerry simply delusional?

As of June 11, Lipscomb still has more questions than answers about Kerry's latest version of the complete release of his military records.

I can't believe any Dems would vote for this JERK again after his hideous and embarrassing run!
