Notes to the Press and Pro-Kerry Bloggers and Commenters

By Steven Taylor @ 12:55 pm

A few quick points:

  • Not everything anti-Kerry is the result of a memo from Karl “Evil Boy Genius” Rove.
  • Just because people who vote for/rsupport Republicans fund something, doesn’t make it a product of the RNC or something that Ed Gillespie sanctioned.
  • If being a Republican supporter/voter is enough to discredit one’s views and opinions, one ought to dismiss Kerry’s “Band of Brothers” as many as paid campaign staffers. To re-state more directly: if having partisan desires (i.e, the election of one canidate over the other) then they can’t be trusted either, because they want Kerry elected.
  • These Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads are in the same camp as MoveOn.org-meaning that they are partisan, funded by monies collected outside the campaigns and parties, and some of what they say is accurate, and some of what they say isn’t.
  • Negative ads funded by independent groups are nothing new.

    1. Let me add to the list: if you’re going to accuse the president of treason (making false national security claims in order to win reelection), have a modicum of proof.

      Oh, and Wolf Blitzer: when a member of Kerry’s inner circle comes on your show and makes such accusations, ask for this modicum of proof. Otherwise quit and go work for the Weekly World News.

    2. People who have been deploring the half-truths and distortions of the likes of MoveOne and Michael Moore, to me, have some credibility with these sorts of criticisms. If you’ve been cheering them on and defending them, you have none.

      From my perspective, however, we have here some actual combat veterans, some of which served in the same unit, one of them in the same boat, with Kerry. These are eyewitnesses to events. Not all of them, but those who aren’t eyewitnesses aren’t claiming to be. They have a right for their grievances to be aired without being slammed as liars.

    3. Dean,

      I agree about the unit issue-those who keep saying that “they didn’t serve in the same boat” simply don’t understand what they are talking about.

      And it will be interesting to see how many of the folks who are vehemently oppossed to the SWfT ads are also boosters of Moore and/or MoveOn.org.
