More Shifty Boat Liars Stuff

The New York Times has a very good article today on this (hopefully) disaster for Shrub Jr.

Also, Kerry fired back yesterday in a big way: "Of course, the President keeps telling people he would never question my service to our country. Instead, he watches as a Republican-funded attack group does just that. Well, if he wants to have a debate about our service in Vietnam, here is my answer: “Bring it on.”

And the Kerry campaign is going after Regnery, the publisher of the Shifty Boat Liars book, acording to Salon: The Kerry campaign has told Salon that the publisher of "Unfit for Command," the book that is at the center of the attack on Kerry's military record by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, is retailing a hoax and should consider withdrawing it from bookstores. "No publisher should want to be selling books with proven falsehoods in them, especially falsehoods that are meant to smear the military service of an American veteran," said Kerry campaign spokesman Chad Clanton. "If I were them, I'd be ducking under my desk wondering what to do. This is a serious problem."

You remember, of course, back in 2000 that the Bush camp forced St. Martin's Press to withdraw the book Fortunate Son, which alledged that Shrub Jr had used cocaine, claiming the book's author was perpetrating a hoax. More from Digby.
