    Looks like Bush has pulled even, even a little ahead. I hope there is an anti-smearboat backlash now that they have been discredited. At least this will be a fun race to watch right up to the end.

    LOL Listen to the desperation in your voice. "I hope theres a backlash." Backlash to what? An independent group trying to tell their side of the story?

    If anyone is libel for defamation it should be Kerry. He defamed those soldiers 33 years ago by calling them baby-killers and rapists. I think they've earned the right to speak.

    Enjoy for more years of W, buschie.

    I was debating whether or not to post this. Had decided against it until I read this stupid "smear boat" cheap shot.

    Apparently the folks in Georgia weren't too enamored of Max Cleland as their Senator.

    Whatever his shortcomings as a Senator may have been, Cleland served with distinction in RVN. It genuinely saddens me to see him willingly besmirch his reputation as a veteran for the likes of kerry. And as the article points out, kerry sought to use crippled veterans to support his lies back in 1971. History repeats itself once again. How anyone can consider supporting that disgusting slimeball is beyond my comprehension.

    SAD MAX TURNING TRICKS FOR THE POODLE
    by Neal Boortz

    In April of 1971 John Kerry gave the following testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee: "I called the media .... I said 'If I take some crippled veterans down to the White House and we chain ourselves to the gates, will we get coverage?' 'O, yes, we'll cover that.'"

    Then, on August 25, 2004, John Kerry sends Mac Cleland, a veteran who lost three limbs in Vietnam to accost George Bush at the gates of his Crawford ranch.

    It was a sad and pathetic spectacle, especially for people like myself who have known and loved Max Cleland for so many years. Sadly, former Georgia Senator Max Cleland is now serving in a new role as John Kerry's public relations prostitute Yesterday he went to President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas yesterday to deliver a letter. That's right...Max went right up to the gate to deliver a letter to George Bush asking him to specifically condemn the Swift Vets attacks on The Poodle. The letter said "you owe a special duty" to condemn the attacks. Interestingly John Kerry apparently owes no special duty to tell Moveon.org to stop the 'AWOL' attacks on George Bush's military service. But why argue the fine points of media bias?

    Anyway, so there it was....poor Max Cleland, playing up the shock value of his disability by visiting the president's home in Texas. How sad. Doesn't Cleland realize why he was picked for the job? Why for instance did The Poodle not send John Edwards? Right...he's not a Vietnam Vet. Well then...how about some other Democrat that was in the military...maybe Tom Harkin? Nope...of course the Kerry campaign sent Max Cleland...they used him...because of his status as a triple amputee. Just go back to Kerry's statement to the Senate in 1971! They hope that the image of Cleland in his wheel chair on the news will pull at people's heart strings and make them dislike that mean, evil George Bush. Talk about having no pride...what do you suppose Max is after?

    Maybe The Poodle has promised him a job in a potential Kerry administration. Maybe Max has nothing better to do. Maybe it's just the result of Cleland's intense bitterness over losing his U.S. Senate seat in 2000. Cleland says that his patriotism was challenged in that election. I was here ... I was in the middle of it ... and that's not the case. The voters of Georgia were disgusted. They didn't like the way Max Cleland sold his very soul to Tom Dashle and the government employee unions, and they made their feeling known at the polls.

    Either way, it's a shame. By the way, Cleland wanted to deliver the letter to an officer, but neither the Secret Service nor the state troopers would take it. A Texas state official and Vietnam veteran Jerry Patterson said he would accept the letter and offered a pro-Bush letter, but Max said he would just mail it in.

    Kind of like he did when he was in the Senate.

    Can this get any more absurd? While John Kerry is sending surrogates to the Western White House to demand denunciations of the Swift Boat veterans, supporters stand behind him at a visit to a union shop in Philadelphia holding bumper stickers that read "George Bush, AWOL, 1972-1973."

    And by the way: ANOTHER LIE! DOES THIS MAN EVER TELL THE TRUTH?

    Here are the words of The Poodle at a gathering in Richmond, Virginia on January 20th, 2003:

    "I remember well April 1968 -- I was serving in Vietnam, a place of violence -- when the news reports brought home to me and my crewmates the violence back home, and the tragic news that one of the bullets flying that terrible spring took the life of [Dr. King.]"

    Oops. Small problem here. If you look at John Kerry's website you will see that he didn't report for duty in Vietnam until November 16, 1968 .. more than seven months after Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered.

    Oh well.

    There is a huge problem with that. You guys have yet to discredit them. Calling them liars hardly discredits them. Im amazed how you guys can call people names and just assume that means its true when you offer no evidence to support your claim. Its like the "Bush lied" been hearing that for four years yet still waiting for bush haters to prove it. Or another one "President Clinton was a great president" no evidence for that one either.

    You know its hard to have a rational debate about issues when one party is all about name calling without proving anything and thus ends the argument.

    For them, the desire for political power trumps pride, integrity, character, honor, and honesty. They are a pitiful lot.

    Yes, I'm sure all Democratic Veterans are bad and all Republican Veterans are good. Even Max, I bet he took of his own limbs just to get a purple heart.

    Given your record for stupid statements, I find it amazing how you continue to manage to surpass yourself. You're quite an artist - if you get my drift.

    No, the NY Times, The Chicago Tribune, official Naval Records and more every day supports John Kerry. I mean, at what point do you guys accept that these guys are nothing but smear merchants? I know that you don't really want to know the truth, the truth means nothing. The only thing that matters is that Bush is elected. And you know what? That's just fine, that's politics. But you know deep down, that Kerry earned his medals and he served in combat with honor. I bet you sincerly believe these guys, maybe then even believe it themselves. But wanted something to be true is not the same as the truth. Like it or not, the truth prevails, Kerry served with honor in Vietnam. You [GOP] may have gotten some points, but you did so by flat-out lying. All is fair in love, war and politics though. So take your points, but you know you cheated to get them.
