John Kerry receives Spine Award

The Progressive Democrats of America have awarded John Kerry with a 'Spine Certificate' as part of their 'Backbone Campaign'. The certificate praised Kerry for taking leadership in an attempt to fillibuster the Alito nomination to the Supreme Court. It was described as a 'principled' fight to protect the Supreme Court and the nation from Alito's extremism.' [cough] Okay, I'm a little late posting this. The certificate was given to Kerry last week and the Where's John Kerry's 180? blogburst at Cao's Blog was yesterday. But I'm not any where near as late as John Kerry has been releasing the over 100 pages missing from his military record. He delayed over 2 years authorizing the release of any of his records. Then he signed part of a SF 180 to authorize the release of part of his record. In January 2005, in an interview with Tim Russert on Meet the Press, Kerry stated:

I’d be happy to put the records out. We put all the records out that I had been sent by the military. Then at the last moment, they sent some more stuff, which had some things that weren’t even relevant to the record. So when we get–I’m going to sit down with them and make sure that they are clear and I am clear as to what is in the record and what isn’t in the record and we’ll put it out. I have no problem with that.

transcript. I'm just curious about the 'stuff' he wanted to get clear about and deem relevant before he released it. Why are there over 100 pages missing from his military records. Now that he's officially been declared to have a spine, he should have enough spine to sign the SF 180.
