Limbaugh Further Compromises His Credibility By Backing Disputed Swift Boat Liars

Earlier in the week, John Kerry was asked about the Swift Boat Liars and he responded that he was prepared with additional evidence to fight them. Even before this interview the claims of the Swift Boat Liars had been exposed as lies originating from political opponents.

At the end of the week another source lacking credibility, Rush Limbaugh, claimed that they “were right on the money, and nobody has disproven anything they claimed in any of their ads, statements, written commentaries, or anything of the sort.” I’ve previously posted numerous articles disputing their claims. Media Matters reviewed some of the false claims following Limbaugh’s statement. Kerry spokesman David Wade issued the following response to Limbaugh:

At first I thought, that’s not Rush, that’s just the OxyContin talking. Nonetheless, this is a despicable but unsurprising new lie from a man whose closest brush with combat came when customs officials tried to take away his Viagra.
