Yawn, Kerry's a Liar

      The Washington Times has a story up today saying that Kerry lied about meeting with members of the Security Council before voting to authorize the invasion of Iraq (which he did before voting against the invasion of Iraq).

      So fucking what?

      Yes, as Michelle Malkin and Redstate say, it's important that Kerry is a liar, at least in a civics class sense. But is there anyone out there whose vote will be changed by this story?  I'll believe that when I see it.  As far as I can tell, the people who have/will vote for Kerry either won't believe it, or don't care.  And the Main Stream Media won't really report it.  So this story won't have legs.

      No, as Jeff Goldstein and others have said, it's a bust.  I don't believe this story has the potential to swing the electoral votes in a single state, even in combination with anything else that has or will be said about Kerry.  And that's the definition of unimportant, electionwise.

      Thank God Almighty that this asinine election will be over take place in eight days, and the court challenges will be over a month or two later.

Update, 10/26, 0242 CST:

      Hmmm, maybe I owe Kerry an apology.  As Barry Meislin comments at The Brothers Judd, we're calling Kerry a liar based on the word of UN DIPLOMATS.  Is anyone, including Kerry, really less credible than UN employees?

      And "carter" asks why Kerry would boast about something, i.e. meeting UN diplomats, that a normal person would be reluctant to admit to?

      I'll have to think on this one. . .
