On the Definition of “All the Records”:
Lurch, you’re making this too easy.
I’ve been off for a few days and thus altogether missed Lurch’s performance on Meet the Press. Hugh Hewitt does a pretty good job of linking to the sites reporting the somewhat lack luster performance. What do you expect from a botox ridden walking corpse?
There is but one item I’d like to comment on. Lurch publicly proclaimed that he would release all records pertaining to his military service. He did this on national television, although you can’t exactly expect America to be paying attention to much of anything that early on a Sunday morning. Maybe Lurch expected his statement to go unnoticed by the media.
Well, it seems that one Boston Globe reporter showed up at Kerry Campaign HQ desiring to review the records previously promised by Lurch. Said reporter was rebuffed and told there would be no new information released to the public.
Drip. Drip. Drip.
I guess that depends on your definition of "All the Records".
I do not know what is locked inside Lurch’s military records. I do not fault the man for serving his country in time of war. That being said, there are serious rumblings out there about his service, his command, and even the validity of the acts behind his medals and decorations. You know, the ribbons he tossed over the White House fence after he came home from ‘combat’.
If I had to guess, I’d bet there is something in those records that reflects badly upon Lurch as a Naval Officer. This would be a ‘bad thing’ as it would tarnish the one aspect of his life Lurch can hang his future on. Didn’t you know he served in Vietnam?
Lurch, the wind is coming.
Here endeth the lesson.
