John Kerry Is A Big Fat Hypocrite

This is one of the most hypocritical things I have ever heard:
WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. John Kerry urged the White House on Friday to release "in their entirety" all documents and memos from Supreme Court nominee John Roberts' tenure in two Republican administrations."We cannot do our duty if either Judge Roberts or the Bush administration hides elements of his professional record," said the Massachusetts senator who was his party's presidential candidate last year. Opening what is expected to be a broader attempt by Democrats to pry loose documents, Kerry issued his statement as Roberts made the latest in a series of courtesy calls on senators in advance of confirmation hearing.
Keep in mind that the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" and various Republicans requested that John Kerry, who was running for President at the time (largely based upon his alleged heroics in Vietnam), release his full military records during the campaign. Did Kerry comply with their requests? Not during the campaign. In fact, John Kerry did not sign the form required to release his records until well after the campaign was over. When he did release the records, he did not release them to the public. Rather, he only released them to 3 reporters from friendly newspapers. If that isn't hypocrisy, well I don't know what is...

Clearly, Kerry and the Democrats are frustrated because they have found no smoking gun. They want material to wage war against Roberts. Unfortunately for them, Roberts has not been on the bench for very long . Therefore, he doesn't have a large number of opinions to review.
