Kerry, Boyd, and 2004

Boydot is at it again. Star Tribune editorial staff member Jim Boyd is still fighting the 2004 election. Here is what he wrote in 2004:

.... Along with former and current Republican elected officials, Hinderaker and Johnson are serving as part of the effort to smear John Kerry, just as Republicans smeared Sen. John McCain in 2000, then-Sen. Max Cleland in 2002, and critics Richard Clarke and Joe Wilson in 2004....

Here is an excerpt from the editorial from Saturday's newspaper:

Reprising a campaign tactic that had worked well against Sen. John McCain in 2000 and Sen. Max Cleland in 2002, White House political strategist Karl Rove went straight at Kerry's most significant strength: his war record.

Do you suppose Boyd had a hand in writing Saturday's unsigned editorial?

Here is the initial article (to which Boyd was responding in 2004) and the knockout punch, both by Powerline.

The recent editorial is a target-rich environment. It misstates questions that have been raised about one of Kerry's purple hearts. Also, it fails to ask why Kerry did not authorize release of all his military records before the election, despite promising to do so.

Bring it on!
