Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.
- General George Patton Jr
(In this case, discover what they are guilty of)

John Kerry has accused the Bush campaign of Collaborating with the 527 group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

It appears that he should be careful of what he accuses others of, because his own DNC may be guilty of the same thing!

The relevant part:
"The Democratic Party is partnering with MoveOn.org, People for the American Way, Campaign for America's Future, and dozens of other groups representing millions of Americans to organize a massive public mobilization. On Wednesday, May 14, join us by calling and emailing your representatives in Congress to let them know that the majority of Americans oppose more irresponsible tax cuts that go overwhelmingly to the wealthiest sliver of Americans."

This graphic, via Blogs for Bush, gives a nice rundown of the web of connections the Kerry campaign and the DNC has to 527s.

With the amount of money and resources that Democrat surrogates are putting forward to defeat President Bush, it is no wonder that the Kerry campaign is nervous that Bush supporters have joined the fight on Kerry's chosen field of play. I wonder if they feel they will lose a fair fight, or if they figure that they can only win on a field in which their opponent in not playing on?
