Steyn boils it down, as usual 

With so many so called experts and analysts parsing every word, every gesture, made in a political campaign, its easy to get caught up in the argument game, where every issue is debated at a level of granularity that should be limited to the court room. Thankfully, there are a handful of writers out there who seem to fly above it all, cutting through the fog to deliver us clarity. Mark Steyn is one of these, and today he delivered what one can only hope will be the last word on the ridiculous Swift boat kerfuffle. The basic thesis is that the Kerry campaign has stepped into a tar pit of its own making, and one that, based on the known facts, it will have a hard time extricating itself from.

Point 1
Nothing the "sleazoids" say about Kerry is as bad as what he said about
them 33 years ago in his testimony to Congress, when he informed the world that
his comrades – his "band of brothers" – had "personally raped, cut off ears, cut
off heads" etc, throughout their time in Vietnam.

Point 2

What sort of idiot would make the centrepiece of his presidential
campaign four months of proud service in a war he's best known for

Point 3

How cocooned from reality do you have to be to think you can transform one
of the most divisive periods in American history – in which you were largely
responsible for much of the divisiveness – into a sappy, happy-clappy,
soft-focus patriotic blur without anybody objecting?

'Nuff said.

And, how stupid is Kerry to bring on intense examination of his war record when he knows he fabricated most of it?

Or, does he know? Is he so deluded that he now believes his own fiction? Can we afford this kind of pathology in the Commander-in-Chief now?
