A "smoking gun" backfires?
IF, and please note I said if, if most people come to think the forged 60 Minutes memos came from the Kerry campaign, it will be curtains for Kerry's chances. It would not surprise me if the forged memo scandal (And that's what it is, even if it's only CBS's scandal.) is already behind some of the shift towards Bush in the polls.
(Kerry's inept and absurdly negative turn in his campaigning, which I predicted in part, doesn't help either.)
