New Kerry Ad Campaign

Scott Ott:

The ad campaign, called A Lifetime of Talking About a Few Months in the Service, focuses on a little-known chapter in Mr. Kerry’s life, his four months as a swift boat commander in Vietnam.

“While most voters are familiar with Kerry’s sterling record of legislative achievement as a leader in the Senate,” said an unnamed spokesman, “they’re surprised to discover that he actually served during wartime.”

The source said that the story of Mr. Kerry’s Vietnam service has been “suppressed by the right-wing attack machine.”
