Although it is not yet News Fit To Print, the two NYC tabloids, the The NY Post and the Daily News, grapple with Kerry's "Christmas in Cambodia" legend. Fox News ran a story, and got a comical reaction-retraction from the Kerry camp. (And yes, we see a Murdoch connection, thanks).
My caveat to the Kerry critics - "Christmas is Cambodia" is a Kerry creation, and he deserves to be hammered on it. However, "St. Patrick's in (or near) Cambodia", especially with SEALs, has got life. Be careful with the undated "hat" story - SEALs and CIA both operate covertly, and that mistake would be easily overlooked. I'm just sayin'.
Of course, as support of this, Kerry would need to release some missing after-action reports for March 18/19. C'mon, John - Keep the promise you made to Tim!
MORE - where I would take this, if I worked for Kerry, is to get the "seared in my memory" quote scaled back to "Sort of lightly browned", and then try to switch over to "Hey, he really was in Cambodia when Operation Menu started." The partisan, racist, hate-mongering, lying, crooked Republican Attack Machine (did I mention they are racist?) needs to stare at the checkerboard (Kerry clearly does not play chess) and get one step ahead of this defense. Hint!
RE: "Lightly browned" - NO, Kerry is not going to say, "I was toasted in my memory". Please. This is a no-smoking blog. No smoking of anything.
