The Globe again has dispelled rumors about Bush's AWOL charge, an issue they started in 2000, by interviewing one of people involved in an overheard conversation involving Bush's records. This really is silly when the press has to go this far to dispel crap like this.
By bringing this issue up in February, it will innoculate Bush in the Fall when the dems try to bring it up again. Kerry's record in 1972 will be highlighted incessently and hurt him. Fast forward to the debate in October 2004. Question to Mr. Kerry, "What were you doing in 1972 while Lt. Bush was flying F-102s?"
"Uhhh, uhhh. Aww, forget it."
