John Kerry just posted an anti-swiftboating diary on Daily Kos
Advertisements [?]
Please read, recommend, and comment on his Daily Kos diary here:

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/1/23/16935/0738

It includes the text of the email he sent out to the Obama campaign's list yesterday, but it goes in to more (and more forceful) detail about how and why we need to follow his lead and defend all Democrats against all the smears coming the Rovian Right Wing Noise Machine.

It's good stuff. And yes, BTW, he's serious about what he says in his opening, and especially in his closing (we've already been given our marching orders here at TeamJK, ahem):



I hate the term Swiftboating. I hate how the name of the boats we honored when we were in uniform in Vietnam has become a verb for the twisted politics of Karl Rove.

But today we need to fight the right wings tactics not just to reclaim a word, but to reclaim our democracy.

And for anyone who thinks, we dont even have a nominee yet, are the Republicans really attacking Democratic presidential candidates already? the answer is not just yes, but it matters (and, yes, some people are really asking that.)


{snip}


Ill be devoting some serious time, resources, and energy from both my staff and myself in fighting these smears and empowering all of you to fight them as well. Ill have more on what you can do to help combat smears as we go forward.

We cant let the right-wing steal another election with lies and distortions.
