The Real John Kerry

Here’s your BIG STORY…

Isn’t it amazing that ESPN manages to catch the real John Kerry in the scope of one 10 question interview?

Kerry seems to have a pathological need to insert himself into famous events or situations, a la Forrest Gump, regardless of whether he will later be called to account for the inconsistency of his statements.

According to an ESPN interview, Sen. John Kerry claimed to be just “30 yards away” from Bill Buckner’s infamous error in game 6 of the 1986 World Series. That fateful game was held at Shea Stadium in New York on October 25, 1986.

Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire reports that a Boston Globe article places Kerry in Boston that night at a banquet.

No record of Kerry ever running the Boston Marathon has ever been found, and you can be assured plenty of people have been looking all summer…

Update: The Kerry camp has assured ESPN that he was in both Boston and New York that evening. Their track record (see Christmas In Cambodia) is exceptional in these matters and should, of course, be given the proper level credence…
