Swift Boat Liars for "Truth"

Over the past few months I have seen and heard this group of jackasses calling themselves "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" run down John Kerry and try to cast seeds of doubt in the American public's mind regarding his leadership ability and his capacity for telling the truth.

When they released their first TV ad a few weeks ago, it was rather quickly and effectively refuted by people who actually were there, and by those who managed to do a modicum of research.

Now they are about to unleash an ad showing a very brief clip of then-Vietnam veteran Kerry testifying before a Senate committee in 1971 regarding conditions in Vietnam. It takes a sentence from his testimony and makes it sound as if Kerry was anti-American.

However, Atrios has posted the full transcript of Kerry's testimony on his blog. Go there and read it in full.

My friend has a baby diaper cakes website...kind of like yours. He's having a tough go of it and is considering giving up. If you get a chance, go to baby diaper cakes and give him a few words of encouragement. I think he has a really great site.
