I made this during the 2008 campaign because I was really mad at the smear tactics I was seeing from the McCain / Palin campaign, which reminded me a lot of the Bush campaign against Kerry (the is the origin of the "purple heart bandaid" in the video which was an actual gimmick they used at the 2004 Republican convention to make fun of Kerry's purple heart). I decided to make an attack ad against McCain that used the exact same dirty tactics. I'm not necessarily proud, of this work looking back on it but I wanted the McCain campaign and Republicans to consider how even a hero like McCain's life could be twisted just as easily by the same "swiftboat" tactics they used against Kerry and then Obama.
This presentation combines information on McCain's military past from The US Veteran Dispatch who hate both McCain and Kerry. It also uses other public sources such as Wikipedia and his own admissions and other sources on the public record of his life and career.
