The Swiftboat veterans didn't attack Kerry's Vietnam service... they attacked his anti war activism and his lies about his service

In an otherwise pretty good profile on Bob Perry, no relation to Rick, Matt Stiles shows off his establishment bias (link). Excerpt follows...
 He gave $4.4 million to the Swift Boat Veterans campaign that attacked the Vietnam War record of John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate. 
Kerry's anti war activism and his proven lies about his own alleged heroism needed to be called out... he was unfit to be president...

When people say "swiftboated" as a verb they should mean that a group is correctly pointing out something bad from someone's past the media refuse to talk about... despite his wrap me in the flag I am reporting for duty rhetoric John Kerry was one of those crazy anti war Vietnam peeps... not just against the war but the kind who throws his medals away and makes up lies and talks about American soldiers as war criminals and murderous "JENJISS Khan" thugs... he was the kind who lied and lied and lied about what was happening and also about his own record because he is anti war and that is fine... but why did it take the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth to point out that Kerry was not what he was making himself out to be... why did the media basically black that story out until the highly credible group of veterans got together to speak out?

The huge group of veterans in that video didn't attack John Kerry's Vietnam War record... they attacked his "useful idiot" lies about them.

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
