John, you're a bore; We've heard this before

I wonder if John Kerry is regretting running as the war hero candidate yet. If he had gracefully attempted to gloss over his service record entirely, and refused to use it at all for campaign fodder, I doubt very much the Swift Vets would have been as quick to attack him. Without that attack, it seems unlikely anyone would have cared to more closely examine his records, least of all the Pentagon. Which is to say, it must be quite hard to run such a self-destructive campaign. A candidate who'd neither said nor done anything of note since the primaries would probably be still tied with Bush right now. But Kerry, as the saying goes, opened his mouth and removed all doubt - and he has no one to blame but himself. (Via Instapundit.)
