Swiftboaters On McCain Campaign

Lying down with fleas, etc.

But one McCain supporter, retired Col. Bud Day, who was held prisoner with McCain in Vietnam, said the attacks on McCain were nothing like the swift boat attacks. He helped produce those attacks against Kerry, which were true, he said. The attacks against McCain are not, he added.

‘The swift boat, quote, attacks were simply a revelation of the truth,’ he said. ‘The similarity does not exist here because basically what the Swift Boat campaign was about was to lay out John Kerry’s record.’

And yes I know, Bud Day is a highly decorated veteran. That doesn’t mean he ain’t a liar and an enabler of one of the most dishonest campaigns in U.S. history.
