Short Attention Span Politics

Posted in Politics at 12:52 pm by ndsmith

When conservative activist group “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth”, fueled by some 30 million (!) dollars from Bush supporters, attacked John Kerry in his Presidential bid for falsifying his decorated service in Vietnam, the voting public felt that Kerry had not adequately defended himself against the charges. Too bad for us.

The New York Times is reporting today that Kerry and his staff have quietly continued the fight and are soon prepared to release a report that they say will clearly and definitively exonerate him of every charge that was once leveled against him. “While it would be easy to see this as part of Mr. Kerry’s exploration of another presidential run,” reports the Times, “his friends say the Swift boat charges struck at an experience so central to his identity that he would want to correct the record even if he were retiring from public life.” Stay tuned, I promise to link to the report when it is published.
