So, let’s see if I have this right. First, the Kerry campaign tries to threaten television stations into not airing the SBV ads. When that doesn’t work, they try to pressure the publisher into pulling the book. Now they’re filing a complaint with the FCC, saying that the SBV group and the Bush campaign are […]

You know, I’m going to keep hitting that nail until I think it’s been hit enough. The major media still doesn’t get it. They’re irrelevant. How do I know this? Because of the SVB story. This is a story that’s been kept alive solely on the strength of blogging. Spin it however you like but […]

According to John Kerry’s policy of Restoring Relationships with Our Allies the people profiled here should pretty much just get used to it. Even after the United Nations Security Council on July 30 imposed a 30-day deadline on the Sudanese government to restore stability in Darfur or face unspecified sanctions, United Nations officials here, relying […]

Dean Esmay is offering a challenge on his widely-read blog. Here’s what it is. John O’Neill, one of the leaders of the SBVs group is appearing on Cam Edwards radio show at 3:45 PM Eastern and he’s taking calls. If you think the SBVs are all liars, you can call in and tell him where […]

Finally – FINALLY! – the New York Times covers the Swift Boat Veterans’ allegations against John Kerry. Man, these reporters really did some digging… …into the Swift Boat Veterans’ organization itself. The entire first half talks about how John O’Neill, a successful Texas lawyer with a large law practice, represented people who know successful Texas […]

Well, Good Lord, folks. The Swift Vets story is still out there and it’s even being picked up by major newspapers – well not the New York Times or the Washington Post – but other major newspapers. But that’s not exactly true. The Washington Post ran its first story on the Swift Boat Veterans’ criticisms […]

Among his comments criticizing Bush’s troop realignment (a superlative idea, by the way) he said this: “Every Arab country has a stake in not having a failed Iraq…” Look, I’m no foreign policy guru, and I certainly wasn’t a Vietnam War Hero, but even I know this is wrong. Of course, some Arab countries have […]

By now, you’ve probably caught the blurb that MoveOn is running an ad to counter the Swift Boat Veterans’ ad. The ad, according to the WaPo, says that the President “allowed” the Swift Boat Vets to run their advertisement and demands: “George Bush: Take that ad off the air…”. And a MoveOn spokesman said that […]

I was watching the end of “Hardball” last night and I caught a great exchange involving Chris Matthews, Tad Devive (the Kerry spokesman), and Matthew Dowd (the Bush spokesman). They were talking about Tom Harkin’s calling Vice President Cheney a “coward”. Do you know why, according to the Kerry campaign, Harkin unleashed this attack? It’s […]
