Kerry signs SF-180

Apparently Kerry has signed his SF-180 form, so his military records may soon be public. And I have removed the SF-180 clock from the top of this blog.

Kerry has not yet sent the signed forms to the proper authorities, but presumably he will. And it is unclear if the records will be released to the general public or only to Kerry.

Politically I suspect this is a wise move for Kerry. Releasing the records now when the public's attention is elsewhere is less harmful to Kerry than releasing them under pressure in the heat of a campaign.

Update: Turns out Kerry may have not released all his military records
