First, go watch this ad. Then, read the script. Next, read a free chapter from “Unfit For Command“, a new book recounting the observations of Kerry’s comrades in arms from Vietnam.
Follow it up with a look at Senator McCain’s defense of Kerry (ironic, since his campaign finance “reform” bill made this possible), and the response from the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

My thousand-word summary of Kerry’s chances?
Have the bugler sound “Taps.”
