Kerry claims to have signed Form 180

According to Sen. John Kerry, the KerryWatch may soon be at an end:
During an interview yesterday with Globe editorial writers and columnists, the former Democratic presidential nominee was asked if had signed Form SF 180, authorizing the Department of Defense to grant access to all his military records. ''I have signed it," Kerry said. Then, he added that his staff was ''still going through it" and ''very, very shortly, you will have a chance to see it."
Well, maybe not. You see, the Senator's staff is apparently scouring Washington for a postage stamp:
Several e-mails later, [Kerry communications director David] Wade conveyed the following information: On Friday, May 20, Kerry obtained a copy of Form 180 and signed it. ''The next step is to send it to the Navy, which will happen in the next few days. The Navy will then send out the records," e-mailed Wade. Kerry first said he would sign Form 180 when pressed by Tim Russert during a Jan. 30 appearance on ''Meet the Press."
Sen. Kerry, if you're reading this, I'll be happy to pick up the cost of a FedEx First Overnight envelope. That Form 180 could be in the Navy's hands by 8:00 tomorrow morning!
