Think of the contrast! Julia Child, OSS agent who always modestly demurred at any suggestion she was a spy, insisting she was a "file clerk". I think JK could have learned a thing or two from Ms. Child.

A true American hero, she was.

Nuveau Fluff seems to think he killed Julia Child. What he doesn't know is that old cooks never die. They just fritter away. Or is that boil away?

Whichever it is, she'll remain seared in our memories like a surreptitious Cambodian Christmas on the authority of a President-elect.

This is a more honest and compelling Cambodia story than any random sentence ever to ooze out of John Kerry's mouth.

It's hard to blame NBC for attempting an undercover sting/exposé kind of operation. It's what media outlets like them do, for better or worse. What's funny is to see them get a "story" utterly different from the one they sought.

They probed for weakness and found strength. We are not all the sheep the media elite expect, and it doesn't take a federal bureuacracy to make things safer. Gimme a break.

The spin ought to be intriguing.

This sounds about right regarding Kerry's campaign, much as the rest does regarding the theoretical Kerry administration that hasn't a prayer of happening:

Kerry seems to be campaigning on the honor and trustworthiness of the Clinton presidency, the dynamic public persona of the Dukakis campaign, and the foreign policy expertise of the Carter presidency.

The following statement from Swift Boat Veterans for Truth concerns an article appearing in morning edition of the BOSTON GLOBE, written by GLOBE reporter and author of the official Kerry-Edwards campaign book, Mike Kranish.

"Captain George Elliott describes an article appearing in today’s edition of the BOSTON GLOBE by Mike Kranish as extremely inaccurate and highly misstating his actual views. He reaffirms his statement in the current advertisement paid for by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Captain Elliott reaffirms his affidavit in support of that advertisement, and he reaffirms his request that the ad be played.

“Additional documentation will follow.

"The article by Mr. Kranish is particularly surprising given page 102 of Mr. Kranish’s own book quoting John Kerry as acknowledging that he killed a single, wounded, fleeing Viet Cong soldier whom he was afraid would turn around.

"Swift Boat Veterans for Truth has more than 250 supporters who are revealing first hand, eyewitness accounts of numerous incidents concerning John Kerry’s military service record. The organization will continue to discuss much of what John Kerry has reported as fact concerning his four-month tour of duty in Vietnam."

This is a Heh. Indeed. Rotten Egg Alert:

The day after Kerry threatens to sue anyone who dares air this ad, one of the gentlemen in it is now singing a different tune.

Something stinks. And it isn't me.
