"....I wonder what this is costing the DNC?..."
A whole bunch of money I hope.....unless Ms Hitlery is in charge of the purse strings. It could benefit her for the '08 election if Kerry goes down.
"...The SBV's have stared down the Viet Cong and survived. Staring down the likes of Chris Lehane et al should be child's play...."
I'm sure these guys were prepared for what's coming. I can't imagine that they thought this ould be a 'cake walk'. Anyone who has had their eyes on the DNC for the past decade know they are ruthless.
".......Kerry needs to release his records...."
The release of his records would make this all go away pretty fast.....um...depending of course on what's in them.
Bump for vets.
"....The big question is will Mccain come out to defend the Swiftboat veterans when this DNC smear campaign comes out..."
McCain is irrelevant in all of this. He seems to flip-flop as good as Kerry. I wonder what kind of a pact they made those many years ago when they suddenly became friends.
My thinking is that they are leading with weak hands on this, because if they use their stong and mighty it will look like they are beating up on the elderly swifties. And that would not be good for many reasons -- (1) the swing voters love the perceptual underdog, and the swifties would look like an underdog, (2) making the swifties look bad makes the swifties experience look bad, and that tarnishes the bright and shining War Hero (TM) record, and (3) if the Swifties look like infirm elderly getting beat up left and right -- like old geezers who can barely remember where they put the car keys -- what the heck does that make JFK PT-Boat Kerry look like. Gee, he must be a doddering geezer too.
BTW, "Jeh" -- what a name! -- said "PT BOAT" on H&C last night, meaning a Swift Boat -- Colmes caught him, but let it go without signaling the sheeple.
