Swift Boating

Verb: to destroy the character of an honorable indavidual by making false outlandish accusations.

Currently there is a congressional special election going on in southern Ohio. The democratic candidate, Paul Hacket, is an Iraq veteran and running strong in this conservative district. His opponent Jean Schmidt must be getting desperate. Her campain's senior advisor is now publicly questioning whether or not Hacket actually saw combat while he was in Iraq.

I understand that Hackett did not participate in combat at all. ... Let's just not act as though we led marines in combat if we did not, okay.

I think it is horrible that tactics like these are being used. In Iraq, the entire country is a war zone, if you are there, you are seeing combat and your life is at risk daily.
