T. Bone Chicken and the Issue That Refuses to Die

Okay, by now everybody knows how I feel about John Kerry and his refusal to fight back against the Swift Boar Liars for Bush.

But I also figure better late than never, so it is with uncontrolled glee that I see that ten of Kerry's shipmates from Vietnam are taking up T. Boone Pickens on his offer to give (cue music) one million dollars to anyone that can prove that the Swifties are wrong.

This ought to be a slam dunk, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Just when T-Bone is trying to gin up his media whores to slime Barack Obama, all of a sudden he has to defend himself against the lies of fours years back. It's a public-relations coup of unimaginable brilliance, and kudos to Kerry and his crew for getting the timing exactly right

And, unlike public figure John Kerry, these ten shipmates are not ineligible to file slander lawsuits against T-Bone and his ugly band of liars. But first they want to have that face-to-face sitdown with T-Bone, so they can make the fucker squirm in his underwear when they present to him the incontrovertible truth about what really happened during Kerry's nine months in Vietnam.

And this time he won't be able to weasel out of it by changing the rules in the middle of the game. I think these guys are really serious, and if it comes to the point where they need donations for their legal expenses, I'm all over it.

count me in... These people are so out of touch that they don't even realize that the very term to be "Swiftboated" has come to mean to be unfairly and relentlessly attacked in the media...

Truth has a way of creeping in to language despite attempts to control it.
