Disappointed with Geraghty

The latest Kerry prevarication story is out and I'm suitably impressed. He claimed to meet with all the members of the United Nations Security Council prior to casting his vote in 2002. A little journalistic checking by Joel Mowbray at the Washington Times reveals that Kerry fabricated the story. This is a pretty big deal. National Review's Jim Geraghty, who writes the often excellent "Kerry Spot"declares the story a "Yawn." What does Mr. Geraghty want? Kerry's claims to be the better-connected master internationalist is the foundation of his campaign. If he lies about his international/diplomatic activities, he risks a drop in the polls. This is a legitimate and interesting story, certainly more so than the Tur-A-za-Laura Bush gaffe.
