More mean-spirited liberal attacks on Swift Vets

More mean-spirited liberal attacks on Swift Vets



The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth continue to stir up the liberal Hive. Yesterday's Auth cartoon in the Phila. Inquirer shows an elephant labeled Swift Boat Veterans for "Truth" smearing black paint around, while W stands above it all.

[Just as an aside, aren't liberals, who are unusually intelligent, educated, and aesthetically refined, not to mention objective, scientific, and rational, embarrassed that one of their premier satirists is so literal and clunky?]

[As another aside, the Auth cartoon is an example of the incomplete predicate. You know, Right to Choose...what? Defended my country...from whom?. The Swift vet is tiptoeing furtively with brush and paint can, but he's not smearing anything. There is nothing representing, say, The Kerry Record (plaster bust on a pedestal) or Noble Veterans' Heroic Service (don't ask). It's Soviet Realism agit-prop without the intellectual content. Definitely one for the Herblock Hall of Fame]

The liberals' low opinion of veterans and narcissistic hysteria at any one who disagrees with them is beautifully revealed and deployed in today's Inquirer. Pat Oliphant (not available on line yet; there seems to be three day lag after publication) shows a bar of Vietnam veterans disparaging Kerry's medals. They are all fat, frowsty, feed-cap wearing hicks with bad grammar. They were to a man, clerk-typists and latrine maintenance techs in 'Nam (but I bet they didn't bug out after 4 months).

Liberals' refusal to address any issue on the basis of fact (that they didn't just make up) and reflexive resort to personal attack is infuriating, but Kerry's and the hive's outraged cries are giving the SBVfT far greater exposure. As the man said, there ain't no such thing as bad publicity.

Kerry's plan

Kerry's plan



After you look at this poster summary of Kerry's plan, follow the links to Tacitus' more extended but trenchant discussion of Kerry's plan for Iraq. Basically, Kerry's plan is withdraw, regardless. Indochina is not enough. He's determined to see America fail in Iraq and against Islamo-fascist terrorism in general.

Reagan's plan for the Soviets was "We win. They lose". Kerry-type liberals' plan for the US is "The US loses". Not "We lose". They're above it all.

Republican slogans for NYC

Republican slogans for NYC



Well, actually, NRO asked for slogans for buttons. Some of my suggestions weren't half-bad, in my estimation, but judges never agree, so if I want them to see the light of day, I'd better self-publish.


But...but...I thought draft dodgers were the REAL patriots.
Defeat John "Band of Mongols" Kerry

No Republican ever called me a war criminal
2004--When Bush-Comes-to-Shove
[or make it convention specific] When Bush-Comes-to-Shove--8/30-9/2

[On background of burning WTC] Nuance THIS!
[On image of empty ketchup bottle]Empty Suit
[On image of empty ketchup bottle]'69--Empty Uniform/'04--Empty Suit

Kerry owes us 231 days, not 4 years. Or just
231 days-YES/4 years-NO
[Pretty cool, as soon someone explains that Kerry cut his Vietnam tour short by 231 days by faking Purple Hearts)
