Remember earlier this month, when Texas oilman, T. Boone Pickens offered to pay $1 million to anyone who could disprove a single charge of the Swiftboat Veteran’s For Truth, and Kerry promptly fired off a letter, saying:
“While I am prepared to show they lied on allegation after allegation, you have generously offered to pay one million dollars for just one thing that can be proven false. I am prepared to prove the lie beyond any reasonable doubt.”
He even had the presumption to list the charity Mr. Pickens could send the money to, the Paralyzed Veterans of America. But he sort of neglected to mention where the Swiftboaters lied.
Well, ten days have gone by…
We may as well get used to waiting. It took him a year and a half to release the Standard Form 180 (to himself), so why should we expect any different, here? World class obfuscation like this takes time. And T. Boone Pickens isn’t helping matters. As R. Emmett Tyrrell in The New York Sun points out, today:
Mr. Pickens responded immediately, politely asking to see the journal allegedly maintained by Mr. Kerry in Vietnam and “your military record, specifically your service records for the years 1971–1978, and copies of all movies and tapes made during your service.”
Kerry’s probably in his basement right now, foraging through boxes of old papers, military stuff that didn’t seem important enough at the time to keep close track of…. righhhht.
Tyrrell goes on:
As I said earlier, Mr. Kerry was a shameless ham in Vietnam and he remains one. At this writing, Mr. Kerry has failed even to reply to Mr. Pickens, perhaps with good reason; Mr. Pickens ended his letter by asking Mr. Kerry to make a “commitment.” “If you cannot prove anything in the Swift Boat ads to be untrue … make a one million dollar gift to the charity I am choosing — the Medal of Honor Foundation,” Mr. Pickens wrote.

It keeps tickin’. We keep waitin’.
I’m thinking for a long while.
