You know the US presidential election is hotting up when the smear campaigns get started

The US election is, as they promised, getting very dirty. Karl Rove (Bush's Svengali) is said to have predicted, 'By November, they won't even know whose side he fought on.' 'He', of course, is John Kerry - the would-be next president of America whose Svengalis (less gifted in the black arts than Rove) chose to package him as Lieutenant John, intrepid Swift Boat skipper, acknowledging the ovation of the delegates with a military salute and a crisp 'reporting for duty'.
Shortly afterwards, the other side hoisted (yet again) the national-security level to orange and releasing their propaganda torpedo. The Democrats can count on the sell-out movie (Fahrenheit 9/11); the Republicans, a book (Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry) that is already No 1 on Amazon's bestseller list a week before publication.
