As the swiftboating of Murtha begins I wonder where is John Kerry in all of this? Shouldn't he be front and center commenting on this attack since the term was coined during his run for the presidency?
"These despicable attacks on Jack Murtha's patriotism and courage must be met with an enormous public outcry. Call your local talk radio show, write a letter to the editor, phone your members of Congress - join me in acting now to reject these "Swift Boat" style attacks on Jack Murtha. It disgusts me that a bunch of guys who have never put on the uniform of their country have aimed their venom at a marine who served America heroically in Vietnam and has been serving heroically in Congress ever since."
(Update): Teresa Heinz Kerry defends Murtha also.
