Put all of the politicians in a big barrel ... mix them up ... draw one out ... let them make a speech ... and then check that speech for accuracy. After that, you'll need a shower because you'll be standing knee deep in horse hooey. Today's pile of Spiff comes from Clinton. No, not that one ... the one currently running for President. From this AP News Story about Hillary Clinton: During a speech last Monday on Iraq, she said of the Bosnia trip: "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."
According to an Associated Press story at the time, Clinton was placed under no extraordinary risks on that trip. And one of her companions, comedian Sinbad, told The Washington Post he has no recollection either of the threat or reality of gunfire.
According to a Clinton spokesperson, the Senator "misspoke.'
Don't know about you, but I think I would have remembered if snipers where shooting at me. But then again I'm not a politician.
Gotta run now, a huge meteorite just slammed into my house.
(Actually a pine cone from a nearby tree fell and hit a gutter.)
My office will issue a statement in a week or so about how I "misspoke."
