The Little October Surprise that Couldn't

Over the weekend, the blogosphere was buzzing about a big scoop that could ruin the John Kerry campaign. It was going to be front-page news in a major newspaper. Well, um...I've got advance word on the story, and I doubt it's going to hurt Kerry. Here's why:

1. The "major newspaper" is the Washington Times. I'm sorry, but when the owner of your newspaper literally thinks he's God, it's hard for me to respect anything you print. It's even harder for the MSM to take your story and run with it.

2. It's all about how Kerry apparently didn't really talk to certain ambassadors before he voted on the Iraq war. In other words, it's about how Kerry lied about certain events. Problem: Republicans (the main readers of the WT) know about this kind of thing already, Democrats probably won't care, and independents will never hear this story unless the Wall Street Journal or Fox picks up on it.

Simply put, I don't see how this is going to be a big blow to the Kerry camp. Maybe there's more to it than I'm seeing, but there's too many ways for them to spin it. The story just got posted online, and you can find it here:
