And Captain Ed, over in the Captain’s Quarters catches them in the act:

“Ah, yes, those eeeeeeeevil Republican activists! Why, one of them donated $100,000 to the Swiftvets, accounting for two-thirds of their funding prior to the book’s publication. (They’ve raised about $200,000 since from 5,000 individual donors.) It’s a ludicrous non-sequitur; the Swiftvets’ testimony is what should be at issue here, not a single donation from a Republican. Does the Post seriously think that Democrats would line up to assist over 200 veterans from Viet Nam tell the truth about John Kerry?

Perhaps more to the point, would The POST?
