"What they have to lose they lost to him long ago.."

Commenter Lastango writes, at Bill Quick's blog:

...Perhaps even more important, the Swift veterans lack the GOP's internal divisions, timidity, beltway collegialism and concern over their own political futures. No potshots or sparring here. Kerry is facing a bayonet assault. They are inside his perimeter, working him foxhole to foxhole and room to room.

Once, Kerry smashed up and then stole their honor. What they have to lose they lost to him long ago. A discredited Kerry would mean Kerry's war crimes accusations would be discredited, too, if the public were to accept that the source of the accusations was self-serving and untrustworthiness. That is the veterans’ prize. That, and the honor of defending the nation from peril one more time. They will not quit.
