Barone’s footnote

Political historian and analyst extraordinaire Michael Barone has kindly written to add a footnote to our post on Kerry’s fictional explanation for his $87 billion mistake:

One more thing should be noted about John Kerry’s
statement on Good Morning America that he made his inarticulate (actually quite articulate) “I did actually vote for . . . ” statement late at night in the primary season. You correctly pointed out that he spoke at a noontime appearance and that the statement was made a little after 1pm. But it wasn’t during the heat of the primaries. Kerry clinched the Democratic nomination March 2; Bush called and congratulated him on, I believe, the next day. Kerry made the statement in question on March 16. His St. Patrick’s Eve gift to the Bush campaign.
