Remember, it's the evil Republicans that go negative; they're the ones who practice the politics of personal destruction. The Democrats are the party of super-fun-happy-optimism.
The Democrat National Committee has prepared a full-scale assault against the Vietnam Veterans for Truth to draw their character and veracity into question, according to one anonymous source inside the DNC. The campaign of character assassination is scheduled to coincide with the release of the book Unfit for Command which reveals inconvenient facts for the Kerry campaign.
“We have prepared what we call ‘Brown Books’ that contain damaging military records, personal credit histories, medical histories, psychiatric histories, divorce records, you name it,” our source told us. "We've got the goods on the Veterans who oppose Kerry."
When asked if this was just another example of John Kerry slandering Vietnam Vets – like he did in 1971 as a member of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War – our source snapped, “No! This is warfare. The only way we’re going to get out of this is to force everyone to question their motives and credibility.”
“If they want to spread rumors and stories about John Kerry, we’ll spread rumors and stories about them. And some of the things they did in Vietnam were a lot worse than what they say John Kerry did,” our source concluded ominously.
Geez, maybe they could "get out of this" if they would actually, I don't know, dispute the facts rather than fling mud at the messengers. If the best you can do is say they have a chip on their shoulder from Kerry's post-Vietnam activity, and lie and say that people didn't serve with him simply because they weren't on the same 6-person boat as him and claim that the person who says he treated Kerry didn’t sign the paperwork, while not actually saying he didn’t treat Kerry... well if that's the best you can do it kinda makes people wonder if these people might not be telling the truth and have a point.
