Swifties' Ad Generates $400,000 in Donations

Who said it wouldn't have any impact?

SWIFT BOAT VETERANS FOR TRUTH'S INITIAL AD GENERATES $400,000 TO PAY FOR MORE AIR TIME

A group of Vietnam veterans that is challenging Sen. John Kerry's claims of heroic war service says it received a flood of donations in recent days after advertising its contentions on television in three states.

The group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, said it hoped to use the money to monitor Kerry's campaign travels and run ads in cities where he appears. [Ha -ed]

"That's our goal," said John E. O'Neill, a Houston attorney who's one of the group's leaders and co-author of Unfit to Command, a 251-page book being distributed by Regnery Publishing house. The book quotes Navy veterans as saying Kerry distorted his record as a river boat commander in Vietnam's Mekong Delta in 1968 to 1969.

Democrats have said the group is nothing but a Republican hit squad determined to besmirch their candidate.

Yeah- Moveon.org is the voice of virtue and wisdom but the Swifties are a "Republican hit squad." LOL

You know the ads sting when that is the only defense.
