Swift Boat Veterans for Truth

Let them slug it out with Kerry and his minions. The truth, to the extent it can ever be known, will come out in the process -- which will generate much more heat than light. But that's the way of politics.

It's far better than the alternative, which is to suppress political speech. We're almost there, thanks to McCain-Feingold, Bush's decision not to veto, and the Supreme Court's abandonment of the First Amendment in upholding McCain-Feingold's most oppressive elements.

If free speech is on the way out, as it may well be, at least it's going out with a bang.

That's all I have to say. I'm sorry to disappoint you if you found this post because you were searching for something meaty about the Swift Boat Vets. But, as long as you're here, have a look around. There's some rather meaty stuff on other issues.
