Truly American Quote of the Day

“I simply misremembered it wrong.”

— Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL), in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, explaining how he exaggerated ( ie: lied about) his military record.

It would be nice to have politicians who didn’t lie… but it is not a situation that we are likely to have. It would also be nice to have politicians who could speak English.
