Kerry Wins Race To Bottom

How low is John Kerry's credibility? Consider what he told Tim Russert on Meet The Press recently:

Kerry proudly told Russert and the world what his top secret mission was. “We delivered weapons to the Khmer Rouge on the coastline of Cambodia. We went out of Ha Tien, which is right in Vietnam. We went north up into the border. And I have some photographs of that, and that's what we did.”
So there you have it. John Kerry, senator, almost president, potential candidate in '08, member of 9 Senate Committees including 3 on foreign affairs ... has openly stated that as a soldier he was a traitor, running guns to the enemy - the same enemy famous for later slaughtering a third of its own population in "the killing fields."

And the reaction? Yawn.

No one in the Senate called for his dismissal, nor did any ranking member of either party that I know of. The networks barely covered the story, if at all. The blogs on the right laughed at him; those on the left ignored him.

Cuz no one believes him anymore. No one, not even his own supporters. He's not worth arguing about. I can't name any other candidate, left or right, who could say the same thing and get the same reaction, can you?
