Hey, it looks like the swiftboating during this election wasn't as bad as feared, or effectively neutralized.
I have a feeling that the folks at The Patriot Project are largely responsible. When the bad guys started smearing people like Jack Murtha, they helped set up counter ops. (The same swiftboaterssmeared John McCain and John Kerry in the past, and sometimes attack our site.)
They've also reported scams like "push poling."
I suspect they never get the credit they deserve, so please, take a look.
