Lt. Smash, not generally a Kerry fan, sums up Kerry’s military records:
If you’re a partisan hack looking for a scandal, there’s nothing there. Kerry’s evaluations reflect solid to outstanding performance, even accounting for the grade inflation typical in Navy officer fitreps.
Now that the Republicans have spent several days howling for the release of records that show Kerry acting entirely creditably, perhaps they can now start agitating for the release of the separation codes on 1LT Bush’s DD-214.
