KerryHaters was first to blog on the Christmas-in-Cambodia lie, way back on May 21. Too bad the elite media hadn't cast their net widely enough. They'd have had a scoop long ago.--Hugh Hewitt

Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.--Crush Kerry

Mark Steyn has a great piece on Po-Mo Te-ray-za that also manages to kick some sand in John Kerry's eye. Favorite bit:

“We need to offer solutions, not just slogans,” intones Senator Kerry portentously. That’s how much a straight shooter he is. His slogan is a slogan about the inadequacy of slogans.
John Kerry War Criminal?--Part I

How come this story isn't getting more play? Money quotes:

In the distance, an elderly man was tending his water buffalo -- and serving as human cover for a dozen Viet Cong manning a machine-gun nest.

"Open fire; let's take 'em," Kerry ordered, according to his second-in-command, James Wasser of Illinois. Wasser blasted away with his M-60, hitting the old man, who slumped into the water, presumably dead.

The article does not state whether the old man was intentionally providing cover, or was just an innocent bystander.

Then there's this additional detail on the incident that earned Kerry his silver star.

...in one case chasing and killing a teenage Viet Cong enemy who wore only a loin cloth and carried a rocket launcher

And what about this:

Kerry would watch in despair as a crewmate killed a boy who may or may not have been an innocent civilian.

Remember, Kerry was the officer on board that boat. Officers are NOT supposed to "watch in despair" as their men kill innocent civilians.

And here's a tidbit about Kerry's bravery in volunteering for the Swift boat:

"I didn't really want to get involved in the war," Kerry said in a little-noticed contribution to a book of Vietnam reminiscences published in 1986. "When I signed up for the swift boats, they had very little to do with the war. They were engaged in coastal patrolling and that's what I thought I was going to be doing."
The Man Without Qualities blog is a great place to go for substantive discussion of the many reasons Kerry's Pathetic and Bound to Lose.
The Times keeps trying to present Kerry as complex, not a flip-flopper. Money quote:

"I think Kerry made a big effort not to have me invited to participate in that," Ms. Fonda said in a telephone interview this week. "Because I think he wanted the organization to distance itself from me, that I was too radical or something."

Note that this was BEFORE Fonda made her infamous trip to Hanoi.
Kerry, Man of the People, from the Boston Globe. Best Bit:

Even among higher-level politicians, Kerry is not exactly known for his personal touch. Some stories have made it into State House lore: most famously, perhaps, the time in 1996 when William Reinstein, a lawmaker from Revere, with his colleagues looking on, introduced himself to Kerry as "Representative Butchy Cataldo," a former legislator. Kerry fell for it; slapping him on the back and telling "Butchy" how good it was to see him again.

Here's a look at what Kerry's stump speech would be today, had President Bush not invaded Iraq last year, using actual Kerry quotes.

Here's Kerry's 1971 testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Okay, kicking off the Kerry Haters blog today. The goal of this blog will be to create a centralized compendium of anti-Kerry resources.

Mickey Kaus is always a good source of anti-Kerry material.

Kerry sells out Vietnam MIAs.

Here's an interesting story about how Kerry seems stuck in the past. Personally I find it pretty creepy that Kerry went back and recreated the battle that won him the Silver Star.

Drudge caught Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, bashing Wal-Mart while owning over $1 million of Wal-Mart stock.

Is Kerry the Manchurian Candidate? The " highest-ranking intelligence officer ever to have defected from the former Soviet bloc" says Kerry used Soviet talking points in his testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee back in 1971.

Doonesbury Nails Kerry. As Scrappleface notes, Doonesbury isn't very funny. However, he nails John Kerry back in 1971.
