Swift Boat Liars for Bush
Digby sums it up:
Just keep in mind that the swift boat smear is being done to obscure the fact that our great wartime leader couldn't even fulfill his pathetic little obligation to guard the Alamo during the Vietnam war, which is emblematic of his terrible handling of the war in Iraq and the threat of Islamic fundamentalism. Character will out. That's all it is. And that all of these so-called patriots are willing to smear a man who volunteered and actually served in order to cover for this sad little fellow who never spent a minute outside the cozy comfort of his daddy's protection says a lot more about them than it does about Kerry.
