Bad Political Instincts

Can there be any doubt that Kerry's not releasing his records was by far the worst mistake of either campaign? Sure, the Swift Boat crap would have gained a lot less traction, since the whole thing was fueled on speculation. But the real winner in those documents were Kerry’s lackluster grades. Seeing all those C’s and D’s would have totally defused the whole regular guy vs. genius-in-the-front-row-that-everyone-hated thing that was basically the theme of Bush’s campaign. Kerry’s seeming “smarter” than Bush probably cost him more votes than it gained him. I bet that idiot Shrum had something to do with this.
