I hadn't thought of this angle

Long-time reader TmLutas writes in regarding Rathergate and the Kerry campaign:

Here's something that's even worse. What if they (the Kerry campaign) weren't conspiring but were actually incapable of spotting the forgeries? The brightest lights of the Kerry campaign, the guys who are going to be manning tier 2-5 of the executive branch if Kerry gets elected are so credulous that they can't spot such an obvious forgery.

Would you trust these people with the government? I don't.

I confess I hadn't even thought of this angle, and had assumed that they new they were forgeries all along. But what if they were taken in by an obvious fraud like this? That, combined with their approach to treating real classified documents (as evidenced by Sandy "Sticky Fingers" Berger) makes one realize just why so many foreign leaders support Kerry: it would usher in the golden age of anti-American espionage and spycraft. It would be the secret agent Full Employment Act. Oh, wait, that would never happen.

The Kerry camp: Too smart to have attempted such an obvious fraud, too stupid to have seen through such an obvious fraud.

Hmm really? I was kinda assuming this was the case. I think some semi crank who did enough research to know who staudt and killian were passed them along and some Dem organization passed them a around. And the Dem's got a huge hard on and the rest is history. I think if they wanted to forge them they would have hired someone to do a technically better job.
