Ron Brownstein’s paper, the Los Angeles Times, has already warned us that John Kerry’s Vietnam record is off limits — not “fair game” for his political opponents. So it’s no surprise that Brownstein would give Michael Moore’s proven lies a pass, while declaring the Swift Boat Vets’ ad (the truth of which is undetermined but looking better all the time) to be the political equivalent of a “snuff film”:
In his venom, though, [Michael] Moore has been trumped by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a group of Vietnam veterans with strong Republican ties. Last week, the group aired an ad in three battleground states that was to traditional political discussion what a snuff film was to a conventional horror movie.
I don’t have the energy for such nonsense. Luckily, Will Collier takes Brownstein to task, so I don’t have to.
