6. Ahh! Your definition of "swiftboating" is more precise than mine . . .
I just meant "telling lies about a politician's wartime service" rather than "manufacturing lies as part of an explicit (Scaife-funded, Rove-led) campaign tactic."

And who knows there *aren't* shadowy operatives in the background? If one is paranoid enough, one could see this as a preemptive strike by the McCain campaign to tarnish Obama's image by calling him out as a swiftboater.
