The New Swift Boat Vets' Ad

View it here, then read Glenn Reynolds’ take here.

My take? It’s laughable to hear Kerry (and the press) claim that the swift boat vets are a Karl Rove operation. When I first heard Hugh Hewitt play Navy Reserve officer Kerry’s astonishing Winter Soldier speech back in February, I thought for sure that someone like Rove would save this material for an October surprise. To release it in August, before the Republican convention, should make it pretty obvious that for better or worse, the swift boat vets are running solo.
