Excerpt:Â The sudden recent flurry of Democrat references to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth is no random occurrence. On several occasions in the last few weeks, prominent Democrats have invoked variations of the term â€œswiftboatedâ€ with telling regularity. Referring to them on November 5, Senator and 2004 presidential wannabe John Kerry (D.-MA) claimed that, this time around he will â€œmake certain that people donâ€™t get away with that.â€ In the wake of Hillaryâ€™s disastrous performance at the last monthâ€™s debate in Philadelphia, husband Bill rushed in to diffuse criticism of her by the other Democrat candidates on the basis that they were engaged in a â€œSwift Boatâ€ attack against her. The Democrat plan is as predictable as it is transparent. By continually employing references to the Swift Boat Veterans in a universally derisive sense, they hope to discredit the organization in totality.
