Lying liars and the lies they tell

Like a moth to the flame, Bill Clinton is absolutely hypnotized by the thought of telling a whopper of a tale, knowing that the KosKids will drink down the Kool-Aid like water (From Pravda the Washington Post):
Bill Clinton has many of the facts wrong.

His wife didn't make the sniper fire claim "one time late at night when she was exhausted." She actually told the story several times, including during prepared remarks on foreign policy delivered the morning of March 17.

It's also not true that she "immediately apologized for it." Clinton has never apologized and only acknowledged that she "misspoke" a week after the March 17 speech, after the video of her peaceful tarmac reception emerged.

It's also not true that she was the "first first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to go into a combat zone" _ a claim that Hillary Clinton has also made when talking about the trip. Pat Nixon traveled to Saigon during the Vietnam war and Barbara Bush went to Saudi Arabia two months before the launching of Desert Storm.

OK, and we're supposed to believe this guy who lied his way to the presidency, lied while in the Oval Office, lied under oath to Congress. And there was ¿Hillary? right by his side, standing by her man, but too busy to bake cookies. Of course, when you're a lifelong Cubs Yankees Mets baseball fan, it's easy to forget what you said yesterday.
