DAVID WEIGEL ON Swift Boat Derangement Syndrome: "This is why, when today's Democrats talk about John McCain, they can sound incredulous. After all the crap they took, why is he able to ride his Vietnam record to the GOP nomination? "
Maybe because it wasn't a lie?
UPDATE: Weigel emails: "I hope it's clear that the graf was written from the voice of an angry Democrat... and not me. I found the Swift Boat stuff distracting (was ANYONE happy that 2 months of that campaign was about Vietnam?) but Kerry lied about Cambodia and opened the floodgates."
It was clear to me. And it seems the Obama campaign wants this election to be about Vietnam, too, for some reason. That doesn't really seem to work for the Democrats . . . .
