Ok let's just cool it. Note Granite's post #8. We'll just have to wait and see. But a couple of days ago pukin dog hinted about something that would make Kerry's week a very bad one.

He didn't want the story to originate from FR so he didn't say more than that.

Let's wait until Monday.

Here's my guess: "John Kerry met with Jacque Chirac in the leadup to the Iraq war and plotted to stymie the Bush administration's effort to use force against Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein".

If this were to be the story, BC04 needs to release commercials saying "The Washington Post reports...John Kerry: He'll do and say anything to get elected"

At this point, the media has way too much invested in electing Kerry to report anything that would sink his election.

Unless Hillary is worried and orders the hit!

"and it will call into question--amazingly enough--John Kerry's truthfulness" This may very well be so. But the fact is, I don't really know anyone who doesn't already think that sKerry is a a lying weasel. Even his own supporters don't have that much enthusiasm for the creep. I really doubt that its going to have that much of an effect for voters to be told that sKerry told yet another lie. He tells lies all the time on Iraq. LOL! Bottom line, Bush is winning, and winning big, story or no story.

truthfulness means nothing to Kerryites. They are closet anarchists. Thay are a text book example of what happens to a whole generation that grows up without being taken out to the woodshed and held accountable for their actions.

I'm crazy about powerline.com, but a "major newspaper" that would print anything anti-Kerry, means either New York Post or the Washington Times. I can't imagine the MSM paying attention to anything either of them print.

Well.....if the MSM did give legs to a story negative to Kerry, it would be spun into Kerry Kandy for their viewers and readers.

Interesting take. I maintain that his unyielding criticism and denunciation of President George W. Bush's Iraq policy emboldens the terrorists just as much as the terrorist financiers. They're two peas in a pod. The reality is that Kerry hates the United States of America and wishes to bring our sovereignty under UN hegemony.

I'll not be holding my breath. However, I would certainly like to be pleasantly suprised.

"I'm crazy about powerline.com, but a "major newspaper" that would print anything anti-Kerry, means either New York Post or the Washington Times. I can't imagine the MSM paying attention to anything either of them print" Are you serious at all? The Wa Pro and the NYT ARE the MSM! Of course the rest of the MSM always pay attention to what the NYT has to say. That's where the network news get their headlines from.

Anyone care to guess which major newspaper would run such a story? We know which ones we can rule out.

The World Journal and Tribune, Bugtussle, Oklahoma.

Powerline is reliable, and "major" may be correct. But how on earth is such a story going to get out and reach the voters, beyond the WSJ, WashTimes, and NY Post?

Drudge actually reaches more people than any of those sources. But he still doesn't have the reach of the network talking heads and the rest of the MSM.

There were numerous killer scandals in the clinton years, but all of them were squashed. Even the Broaddrick rape story, which did get out to a degree but was immediately buried and ignored.

Ah well, we can always hope. If the Hildabeast gives the order, this story could spread like wildfire.

If this is as big as advertised (slim chance of that, if any).....just when you get a tip you get excited wondering what it might be so that is why Powerline is hyping it up.....but if it is as big as advertised, even if in the Post, it will get press elsewhere.

But, it will have to truly be a big story, an incredible piece of investigative reporting.

Anything less than that and it won't spread.

I agree with you - I am of this generation - the generation that's all Woodstock and Haight Asbury - drugs, sex and anti-war protests.

I fear that a Kerry win would install the worst of all our generation just a time that our nation needs an adult to get us through this war and then leave a semblance of the America I grew up in, to leave to our children and grandchildren. Unfortunately, you may be right that this generation under Kerry would let the past and future generations down.

I just got word that bin Ladin is secretly hiding in Kerry's townhouse on Beacon Hill, and kerry is planning to arrest him in front of the cameras on November 1.

Didn't Teresa say that bin Ladin would show up at the last minute before the election?

"Washington Times, NY Post, Manchester Union Leader, WSJ Editorial Page. I think that about wraps it up."

It might be the Washington Post. They have been pretty fair in their coverage since Rathergate. Plus, they have been vituperating JK quite frequently. I suspect they have had their altercations in the 20 years Kerry has been "serving" as Senator.

Let's not speculate anymore. The DU's are here already and trying desperately to find out what the story is. Let's keep quiet. Drudge is already working and investigating the story, I assure you of that. Powerline is keeping quiet, too, they don't want to fumble the ball. So let's stop the speculation because it will detract and distract from the story. Let the DU go crazy for the next 36 hours. Visit Drudge and Powerline at least twice daily, we may get more hints...

If the press had caught Clinton raping his daughter at high noon in the Rose Garden, they would have either pretended they didn't see it or spun it so she was "asking for it".

Unfortunately, I think you are right. Bill Clinton could have cut the heart out of a child and chewed on it in front of the press and they would have said "Gee, it is amazing how he can compartmentalize?"

My first thought, too. WaPo is not as much in the tank for Kerry as some of the others.

All of that would be assuming this rumor is true, of course.

I'm afraid I am with the posters who feel that as far as the Dems are concerned it doesn't matter - wouldn't matter because it has NEVER been about Kerry------is has always been ANBODY BUT BUSH therefore, I don't think anything having to do with Kerry will make any difference.

I am very nervous and cynical so I hope I'm wrong - also, the Dems have been begging their voters to vote early, and there have been reports of heavy voting in Florida and other swing states so those ballots won't be affected.
