Kerry steps in it

John Kerry stepped in it Wednesday night at a holiday party for his former campaign staff. The quote was:
"If we take back the House, there's a solid case to bring articles of impeachment against this president."
Today’s Globe has an unusually short piece (for Peter Canellos) which says it was all a mistake. Except the piece sounds as though Canellos isn’t quite buying it:
Then again, even [Kerry spokesperson April Boyd] suggested that the remark might not have been fully in jest.

Wrote Boyd: ''He did make the serious point, which he's made forcefully before: 'How are the same Republicans who tried to impeach a president over whether he misled a nation about an affair going to pretend it does not matter if the administration intentionally misled the country into war?' Good luck finding a Democrat in America who disagrees."
Retreating to the 'Bush lied!' meme, I guess.

The press release referred to by Canellos is apparently not on the web.

An early report of the incident is here and the Globe story today is here.
