“Pleasureboat Captains” Send “Swift Boat For Truth” Back To The Swamp


A few weeks ago, I posted a list of some of the funniest parodies of the campaign. I would ad this clip to the list. The “Pleasureboat Captains for Truth” are not only every bit as credible as those “Swift Boat for Truth” clowns, they’re much more entertaining.
