If you don't think the Kerry campaign is imploding - just read a few sections of The Kerry Spot. Including the conversation Kerry had with Bob Dole.
Attempting to tie the Vets to the Presidents campaign is not working (despite the media's attempts to give every bit of assistance they can.) People see the Moveon crap and understand that they are funded by Democrats - and in the same vein the Swift Vets are going to be funded by Republicans. The public sees this as no harm no foul! Only the truly elite would think this is a winning (or is that whining) response.
It does seem that for once Kerry can actually be single minded on one thing, the demand that everyone stop attacking him! But we have seen attack after attack on the President and Kerry has the nerve to tell Bob Dole that he hasn't spent a penny attacking the President --(see The KerrySpot for his lies on this one!) But is this working? They won't answer the charges and that along with the constant changes in the stories is causing serious damage. The President has the job, his resume is the last 4 years - Kerry's resume is turning out to have huge holes in it.
I am still amazed that a one minute advertisement has caused the beginning of this massive implosion and the 1 hour 56 minutes of "Lie-N-Hype 9/11" missed the mark. Amazing how the truth can still shine the light on the world. ("Lie-N-Hype 9/11" = "Fahrenheit 9/11" for those new here - see this, "Lie-N-Hype 9/11" Vs. The Swifties.) This meltdown will only accelerate when the new ad's charges are given their exam by the blogs - something the media just won't do.
The key here is that all of us can dismiss what happened in the fog of war - but what Kerry did when he returned was in the fog of treason, opportunism, or stupidity. None of these are traits that make a good President.
Implosion 101 lesson - An implosion like this is the direct result of one thing and only one thing, running a campaign based on, "anybody but Bush," and the wack-o's like Moore.
BTW, that "Lie-N-Hype 9/11 Vs. The Swifties" was written two weeks ago yesterday - knock, knock, knock - Old Media, is this thing still on? Why have the alphabets fallen from my dial?
