New At OSP

My first, and hopefully only, comment on the Swift Boat nonsense.

Well, I'm actually mulling over an expanded version of this as a column for the Scarlet or OSP. Although the hypothetical column would be less about "this Swift Boat controversy is stupid," and more about how it would have been better for Kerry to frame his campaign around his investigative projects as a Senator, since that would link in well with the storyline that the Bush administration is corrupt. Instead, he was petrified of being labeled "weak on defense," and so he decided to spend his time strutting around in his Purple Hearts. The war hero thing has been both a distraction from issues that matter and a failure on its own merits (Republicans still think he's weak on defense).
