DAN KENNEDY: “Get ready for the next John Kerry media feeding frenzy. Following the court-ordered release of Illinois Republican Senate candidate (make that former candidate) Jack Ryan’s seamy divorce papers, anti-Kerry forces are now demanding the same treatment for Kerry and his first wife, Julia Thorne.”

I agree with Kennedy’s take on this: “If Ryan and his ex-wife wanted their sealed records to remain sealed, that should have been respected. Voters should have been trusted to make what they would of the Ryans’ refusal to go public. Same with Kerry and Thorne.”

I’m also pretty sure it won’t work out that way.
