Is this recent news? If so can we get the article expanded upon with some more sources? The two currently in use are making me think it is POV.

  • Especailly the "Kerry not as smart as you thought" one... --ORBIT 23:36, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • I'll see if I can contact the JK team to send me some documents via email. It'll be hard to find a NPOV source on this, as those who are in support of Kerry are trying to cover it up, while those against are trying to push it up to front-page news. Politics are screwy. --Mrmiscellanious 01:21, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

At present, the article is over-emphasising a small part of the picture. As an examination of the "CVs" of the two, the article should probably mention military service [1] as well as all other aspects of their pasts. Also covering the "CVs" of other members of the administration and the opposition would help give a bit of perspective. Mentioning which of the news sources chose to use the unflattering picture released would be indicative, too. Mentioning that JK was considered to have beaten GWB in the debate earlier in the year is also significant. Finally collecting together some of the sources that suggested that JK is clever or that Bush is stupid would be informative. Mr. Jones 07:12, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC) p.s. One other thing: mention that GWB commonly makes slips and JK doesn't, that this re-inforces the prejudices, but that the slips make some people view GWB as a regular guy.
