Today's New York Times lays out more clearly than ever the Bush ties to the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" smear group. If you don't have time to read the article, just study this graphic for a moment.
No wonder Bush's press secretary keeps changing the subject to "all 527 groups" whenever he's asked if Bush will ask for the ads to be stopped.

CBS News producer Dick Meyer on Dirty Tricks, Patrician Style:
Any student of Bush family campaigns could have seen the swift boat shiv shining a mile away. This old family has traditions – horseshoes, fishing, bad syntax and having the help do the dirty work in campaigns as well as the kitchen. And they are very good at getting jobs done without leaving fingerprints, without compromising their patrician image and their alleged character.(via Talking Points Memo)
