Riding Swiftboats Shooting Spitballs!
The American Conservative Union on Thursday announced it has tapped Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., to present the “Courage Under Fire” award to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth at the Conservative Political Action Conference’s Feb. 18 banquet.
Miller, who is retiring next month, scorched Kerry in a Republican National Convention keynote address in which he suggested the four-term Massachusetts Democrat had voted to cut so many weapons systems, it appeared he wanted to send the military to war with only spitballs.

“The swift boat veterans performed an invaluable service to America,” Miller said in a statement. “These veterans took a lot of undeserved criticism for daring to speak the truth.”
Official military records and even statements from Swift Boat veterans in Navy documents raised questions about their largely unsubstantiated claims…
Since the MSM still has not investigated the most of the Swiftboat Vet’s (led by John O’Neill)claims (although the blogosphere did find numerous fabrications by Kerry, the Christmas in Cambodia Story to name one) I guess they still can say that the accusations are “unsubstantiated”. Too bad they arent handy with a computer or the internet!
This ought to be a great bash for the bashers!
