Swiftboating McCain  —  Ben Smith documents the left's gross attacks on McCain's military record: … Wesley Clark is now and always has been a Clinton-type, but this is pretty revolting.  This kind of personal attack was repulsive coming against Kerry from the far right.  And it's repulsive the other way round.
