High profile democrats have been attacking Senator McCain' military record, including that tool of Clintons, Wesley Clark and democrat Senator Tom Harkin, who for years, lied about his military record (claiming he was a combat pilot in Vietnam. The truth is that he flew jets that needed repair between air bases.)
Instapundit reader John Lunde has a telling commentary on democrats and war records:
"Well, he served in Vietnam... and then he married a rich woman and got elected to the Senate. Are the Democrats now telling us these things don't make for a good candidate?"
Yup, the democrats cut their patriotism and support for members of the military to fit their current fashion.
Mr. Reynolds then knocks it out of the park:
I must disagree with charges that McCain is being "Swift Boated." For this to be a "Swift Boating," people who stayed at the Hanoi Hilton would have to say that McCain was lying about what he did there -- or perhaps that his repeated claims that events there were "seared, seared" in his memory are false, and he was never actually there at all -- and those people would have to be telling the truth
Keep in mind the accurate definition of "Swiftboating":
Swiftboating - 1. (verb) - to use actual quotes and facts that are 100 % traceable to the party they are attributed to. 2. (noun) - the published record of an individual that is later used against them.
