MICKEY KAUS wants to know when Kerry will release his military records:

I give Kerry points for his Vietnam service. But since it (along with some plug-n-play Shrum rhetoric) is almost the entirety of his campaign for president, can it really be true that he hasn't authorized release of his military records? Does he think this is a defensible position? ... Hello, Edwards!

Maybe Edwards could raise the issue while guest-hosting the Hugh Hewitt show!

UPDATE: Kerry's already getting heat from Vietnam vets about his records. I suppose that they'll probably turn out to be as innocuous as Bush's records, but people are bound to wonder why he's keeping them secret, especially after so much noise was made about Bush. [Later: Here's a Snopes item debunking claims that Kerry's medals are "fishy."]
