When the Swifties were Debunked…
PoliPundit, qua PoliPundit, posted this (Thursday) morning about the overt bias in AP piece regarding Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. A quote he used as an example intrigued me:
[Kerry campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill] said it was frustrating that the first ad continued to eat up so much air time even after the central allegations were debunked.The problem here is the assertion that "the central allegations were debunked. They weren't. The only thing remotely debunking the Swifties' claims are Kerry denials "backed up" by that Rassman fellow who followed the candidate around like a little kid who had been saved from an oncoming car by the class clown. But that's no a refutation by a long shot.
If Kerry wished to DEBUNK the Swifties, he could have signed a form and had his Naval docs released. He didn't. The charges still stand.
They are much less important now, though, as Kerry is safely out of our hair.
