Lileks on Kerry's... uh... Youthful Indescretions

The Bleat is particularly fine today. It covers James' journey from idealistic, liberal young man to self-realized adult. I read the piece and saw my reflection.

Oh... and it uses John Kerry's post-Viet Nam behavior as a catalyst.

Fine, whatever. This much is true: when you're 50, holding on to the details of your 20-something convictions is like being 40 and trusting the insights you had when you were ten.
I don't care what John Kerry said when he was 25.

I care about what John Kerry says today. . . about what he said when he was 25

I hope SOMEONE in national media asks the question...
