Has Tweety been as "appalled" by Mark Kirk (R-IL) as he was when Blumenthal's misspoke on military
Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 10:25 AM by WI_DEM
Remember when Richard Blumenthal of CT was attacked repeatedly by Tweety on Hardball because of what he said about his military service--even though it was proven that this was not something Blumenthal had done repeatedly...What about Illinois Senate canddiate Mark Kirk:

Yesterday Illinois' Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate Mark Kirk finally stopped running from the press and agreed to hold a press conference to explain away various statements he had made, such as:

"I was the Navy's Intelligence Officer of the Year."

"In my role in the military, I command the war room in the Pentagon."

"As you may know, I am a veteran of the Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom missions."

"The last time I was in Iraq I was in uniform, flying at 20,000 feet and the Iraqi Air Defense Network was shooting at us."

"Last year, I was with a Dutch armor unit in Kandahar, getting shot at."

... all of which have been proven to be untrue.

2. Today, Kirk is saying he was "careless" in describing his
military service.

Republicans sure have a wide variety of synonyms for the words lying, liar, lie. I'm going to need a whole new section in my thesaurus if this keeps up.
