Glenn Reynolds links to a piece that notes that John Kerry is still refusing to release his military records, an action for which Bush was relentlessly dragged over the coals. One of his readers says that Kerry is using the "rope-a-dope" strategy, noting that it worked for Bush.
I disagree. Even though there was absolutely nothing in the records, Bush is still being smeared as being "AWOL", mostly from twits who never served a single day in any military outfit (Michael Moore, anyone?) and disparage those who have. At least the major media have dropped the subject for the most part.
In keeping with the left's obsession with full disclosure, conservatives should demand Kerry release his record, daily, and then shift the terms of the debate should nothing turn up in the records. Maybe enough noise will create a media firestorm like the one that consumed the Bush campaign earlier this year. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, and we ought to take a gander at the records that Kerry wants to keep hidden.
UPDATE: Kerry has released all the records. We'll see what happpens.
