Swift Boat Liars get inaugural reception?

In and amongst a Washington Post item today about the counter-inaugural "protests" happening on Thursday (WaPo: "The Revolution will be polite. Imagine a do-over of the '60s, this time without the acid and the poor hygiene and the bad craziness.") I noticed a throw-away line that stood out like a sore thumb. A lying sore thumb.

Swift boat veterans who torpedoed John Kerry will be honored in a reception after the parade.

So a group of men whose talking points have been widely and repeatedly debunked (FactCheck) -- a group of men on the front lines of the GOP effort to diminish John Kerry's military service while Mr. Bush dodged the draft -- are being honored at the post-inaugural festivities.

Tell me this is a joke. Funny, funny Washington Post!
