I would assume more people are complaining about Swift Boats not telling the truth, and not so much the 527 thing.

I mean, I haven't heard any complaints anyway about their existence, just the content, though I'm sure there are people you could quote.

Personally, as an activist with the Sierra Club, I'm happier with the lots of little contributions we get then having a group supported by a few large donations. We just have a lot of members.

Of course, that assumes that you think the Swifties are lying...the same can be said about Soros and Co. too. What you see depends on where you sit.

It really picked up with some of the libs after the Swifties came along. Especially the "funded by a rich Texas Republican" thing, mildly ingoring the $15 million plus Soros has spent.

Sure, I wasn't arguing whether the ad was true, just that's the issue more people I've talked to have with the ad, rather then it being a 527.

Well, that's always been the criticism of the Republican Party, that they're the party of the rich, so I don't see this as a new charge.

And you're correct about Soros, and many other donors to the Democratic Party. There's a whole lot of rich Democracts donating, which is why I'm a liberal not voting for Kerry or Bush.

Also why simply lumping liberals in with Democrats doesn't always work.

Ah yes, the Republicans, the party of the rich.


How much are Kerry and his wife worth?

Which is pretty much what I just said, actually. So are you joining me in the voting for neither camp, or did you simply want an opportunity to criticize Kerry?
