The Slime Boat Liars For Bush rise again!

Remember back in 2004 when the Slime Boat Liars For Bush (Swift Boaters) popped up?

Well, since John Kerry is being nominated for Secretary of State, Jerome Corsi is recycling his old discredited lies over at WND.

WND's Corsi Intends to Swift-Boat Kerry Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Jerome Corsi arrived in the ConWeb -- and later won a job at WorldNetDaily -- with his attacks on John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign as the co-author of the book "Unfit for Command," which contained factually dubious claims about Kerry's Vietnam War service.

With Kerry's nomination to be secretary of state, Corsi has voted to swift-boat Kerry again. Corsi declared in a dec. 21 WND column:

To coincide with Kerry’s confirmation hearings, I plan to author a series of articles to be published in WND, reminding readers of the radical roots of Kerry’s political career, beginning with his opposition to the Vietnam War, despite advancing exaggerated claims about his three Purple Hearts supposedly earned as a military hero in that same conflict.

In writing these articles, I plan to be speaking only for myself, in that I am not authorized nor will I seek to be authorized to speak for Adm. Hoffman or John O’Neill, or any of the other courageous participants of Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth.

Corsi went on to tout O'Neill's appearance last month on Sean Hannity's Fox News show attacking Kerry, even though the claims made by O'Neill and his Swift Boat Veterans group have been discredited.

1. It will be interesting to see how the populace reacts this time around...

 

as a litmus test measuring how far we've come (or not) since then.

I'd have to guess though that no one will pay any attention this time around as the vast majority of folks don't even know that we have a Secretary of State and probably think it's Brittany Spears anyway.

4. litmus test measuring how far we've come (or not) since then.

Roughly half the general public were a gaggle of ignorant,uninformed/misinformed shitheels in'04.........Roughly half the general public are a gaggle of ignorant,uninformed/misinformed shitheels right now.......There is still a short attention span and shorter memory capacity,collectively....

5. O'Neill was on Hannity's TV show, and it was a total dud.

Hardly anyone reacted, much less still took former Nixon goon O'Neill seriously, especially since O'Neill has been proven to be a loudmouth and a liar.

6. That's heartening...

 

Just don't forget that we 'elected' (maybe, the second time) a loudmouth and a liar as President not too long ago.

3. Corsi is in bed with the Birthers

 

GOP Senators will run from that idiot so fast it'll make Corsi's head spin, or his face rash get worse one.

7. Hannity pontificated about it on his radio show..

focussed on the statements John Kerry made after returning from service, which of course, makes Kerry a traitor. Never mind that neither Hannity or any of these other bottom feeders served at all. This veteran finds all of them to be disgusting pieces of coprolite.

K & R, and also serving notice that I am stealing the phrase "slime boat liars".
