Continuing the Swift Boat debate

I am not sure why Kerry wants to keep the Swift Boat debate on the front pages, but apparently he does.

From the front page of the NY Times:

But among those who were on the front lines of the 2004 campaign, the battle over Mr. Kerry's wartime service continues, out of the limelight but in some ways more heatedly — because unlike then, Mr. Kerry has fully engaged in the fight. Only those on Mr. Kerry's side, however, have gathered new evidence to support their case.

There are still plenty of reporters out there willing to engage John Kerry in this fight. Thomas Lipscomb is one of those reporters. He is not buying Kerry's swift boat lies-

It is time we all got to see a picture of the famous Kerry "lucky hat," rather than another account by the latest star-struck journalist. It is time for Kerry to stop alluding to "records" and start producing them. And it is time media assigned reporters with military experience or the resources to analyze this record and see just who is lying about what.

It should be interesting to see how Kerry will try and clear this up before his next run at the presidency. He couldn't shake this in 2004, I wonder how he will shake it in 2008.
