It should be noted that the forgery-theorists really don't have to come up with good, definitive evidence that the Killian memos are indeed forgeries. They only need to create a sufficiently plausible story-line that keeps the faithful in the herd. It's not really that difficult since they already believe that Kerry faked his way into military decorations, that Saddam actually had WMD and was able to hide them, that making rich people richer and the rest of us poorer is good for the country, that pursuing war in Iraq will protect us from terrorists, and (for many) that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. This election may be decided by the few of the "faithful" who begin to see beyond the house of cards and take advantage of the secret ballot and vote contrary to what their close associates would find acceptable.
