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

Kerry Makes a Firm Decision

To not make a decision, that is.

The senator doesn't want to take a public stand that will make him appear weak on renewable energy, suggested Todd Domke, a Republican consultant.

But, Domke added, Kerry is also unwilling to oppose Kennedy, a Capitol Hill institution whose support last year helped resurrect Kerry's flagging presidential campaign.

"In this case, neutrality was politically the only course for him," Domke said. "Besides, this is what he's known for - taking whatever stand is politically expedient."

That */#!@ Maureen Dowd!

I don't curse much these days, but Maureen Dowd's latest column makes me want to break out the f-bombs.

She notes that USA Next, a group that is lobbying for President Bush's Social Security reform plan, has hired some of the consultants that helped the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the heroes of the 2004 election campaign.

Except of course, that Dowdy Doody doesn't see them that way.

It's hiring some of the same consultants who helped the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, who dynamited John Kerry, a war hero, by sliming him as a war criminal.

John Kerry was no hero. Even Douglas Brinkley, who wrote a glowing biography of Kerry's days in Vietnam acknowledges as much:

"Every American now knows that there's something really screwy about George Bush and the National Guard, and they know that John Kerry was not the war hero we thought he was," said Douglas Brinkley, the historian and author of a friendly biography of Mr. Kerry's war years, acknowledging that Mr. Kerry's opponents had succeeded in raising questions about his service.

Ten Most Underreported Stories of 2004

According to WND:

4. The validity of the Swiftboat vets' charges against Sen. John Kerry. The more than 250 veterans who challenged the Democratic presidential candidate's version of his war record and subsequent anti-war activities were shut out of the mainstream media until Internet sites such as WorldNetDaily and talk radio made it impossible for them to be ignored.

Then mainstream media repeated the assertion by Kerry supporters that the claims against the senator were debunked, without providing evidence. Those who offered evidence contended the military's records supported Kerry's version of events, without mentioning the swiftboat vets' assertion that it was Kerry himself who wrote the "official record" in many instances, in after-action reports.

The campaign was forced to backtrack on Kerry's long-held assertion that he was in Cambodia illegally on Christmas Eve in 1968. Kerry had claimed his swiftboat was ordered to Cambodia by President Nixon while the president denied to the world that any U.S. military forces were engaged in the country. The event was "seared, seared" into his memory, Kerry said on many occasions, including from the Senate floor. It was an experience that helped him conclude the war was immoral and worthy of protest. But Nixon did not become president until Jan. 20, 1969, and none of Kerry's former crew members, including those who campaigned for him, backed his story.

Yep, that was surely one of the more underreported stories of 2004. The good news is that thanks to Kerry Haters, Crush Kerry, Just One Minute, Captains' Quarters and Beldar, with Hugh Hewitt on the radio, the word did get out.
