Synchronicity: Discovery and Swift Boat Vets

According to a report on Panda's Thumb by Wes Elsberry, the Discovery Institute has hired Creative Response Concepts, the PR firm behind the Swift Boat Vets ad campaign which Senator John McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam, called "dishonest and dishonorable" and urged the White House condemn.

Red State Rabble must admit that their is a certain synchronicity between the Swift Boat Vets and the intelligent design movement. CRC must have understood immediately that the casual disregard for the truth shown by both groups makes them a particularly good fit for the firm.

In Seattle, hiring CRC is undoubtedly is viewed as a move to shore up support from those in the values crowd who see no problem with lying, as long as it's done for God.

The Practice Areas page of the Creative Response Concepts website advises potential customers that "[w]hether you are launching a new product, facing an imminent crisis, or looking to educate the public, CRC helps you achieve your goals."

RSR can see that all three "practice areas" might be highly useful for Discovery just now, especially advice on "facing an imminent crisis."
