I think that's pretty much what they'll do.
I kinda hope it's true.
Either way,Kerry will need more than a Band-Aid for this wound.
Chris Lahane(sp?) of the Gore/Kerry teams essentially just said this not moments ago on Nightline - "You know, Tom, it's not inconceivable that the Bush campaign released [these forgeries] to make the Kerry campaign look bad."
Thanks to the internet, we can predict and timestamp their responses hours before they commit them.
In the military we call that GETTING INSIDE THEIR DECISION CYCLE.
