Flipper And the 527s

Bryon Scott of Slings And Arrows guest blogs at Blogs for Bush about Flipper's accusations against The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth:

Over the last week or so, a group called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth has been attacking me. Of course, this group isn't interested in the truth -- and they're not telling the truth,'' Kerry said. ``Here's what you really need to know about them -- they're funded by hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Republican contributor out of Texas. They're a front for the Bush campaign.


HAW!!!!! Who isn't telling the truth? Yesterday one of our retard trolls decided to pipe off with an article citing "documents" that "contradict" Swift Vet Larry Thurlow. Problem? According to Thurlow (and now Kerry) Flipper himself authored the after action report that the troll's link attempted to use in discrediting the man.

Here's the dig! Flipper can't counter these accusations so he's trying to burry the group of Vets who took issue with his self-touted and primary selling point for his candidacy - his military service. He calls them liars. AND He says that because the 527 Swift Vets for Truth has received 100,000 dollars from Republican donors, that makes them a front for the Bush campaign! FAIR ENOUGH FLIPPER! Join President Bush in condemning ALL 527 and soft money advertising! No?! Why oh Why NOT? Because Leftists are dumping tons of cash into these 527s. How much? According to Bryon's research at Opensecrets.org, George Soros has provided 4.5 MILLION DOLLARS to The Joint Victory Campaign. He isn't even the largest donor! He is one of 33 who have contributed more to that leftist 527 than Bob Perry (evil Swift Vet for Truth donating Republican) has given to the Swift Vets. How much more? Bob gave the SV4T $100,000. 41 out of the top 49 best funded 527 organizations are pro-Democrat or Anti-Republican. By Kerry's "logic", they are a "front" for his campaign! What a crock of shit this attack by Flipper is! Additionally, Donk 527 funding totals 176 million compared to Republican 527 funding which totals 10.8 million. Opensecrets.org lists Bush as raising $228,743,338 and Kerry as raising $186,593,248. That brings the totals for both to: Donks $363 Million, Republicans $198 Million. Party of the little guy, huh donks!? Right! Click the link to Blogs For Bush above and read the whole thing! GREAT work Bryon! Remember fellow Elephants:

Swift Vets, Republican Donor, $100,000.
Joint Victory Fund, Donk Donor, $4,500,000.
Total Funding for Donks - $363 Million
Total Funding for Republicans - $198 Million.
