move over, bill--here comes willy mitt

much has been made about bill clinton's parsing of the english language. well, it turns out that bill was just a school yard chump. make way for the new bill, "little willy mitt." like doctor science [he's smarter than you--he has a master's degree--in science!], willy mitt isn't a liar, he's "an english major." translation? "i know what i mean. how fucking stupid are you that you DARE to challenge my words."
[question: english major? did he not graduate? i'm afraid to ask.]
for more on this scintilating topic, read more about willy mitt's daffynition of "saw" and, as an added bonus, get a glimpse of his view of the world of professional sports
[remember, he saved the olympics once].
TPM’s Eric Kleefeld just found this latest installment from NBC’s FirstRead on the brouhaha over Romney’s claim to having seen his pops, George Romney marching with Martin Luther King …
Romney says it depends on what the definition of “saw” is.
A defensive Romney was peppered with questions today on exactly what he meant when he said — most recently on Meet the Press — that he “saw” his father march with Martin Luther King Jr. Recent articles have indicated that his father, the late Michigan Gov. George Romney, didn’t march with the civil-rights leader.
Admitting that he didn’t see the march with his own eyes, he said, “I ’saw’ him in the figurative sense.”
“The reference of seeing my father lead in civil rights,” he said, “and seeing my father march with Martin Luther King is in the sense of this figurative awareness of and recognition of his leadership.”
“I’ve tried to be as accurate as I can be,” he continued, smiling firmly. “If you look at the literature or look at the dictionary, the term ’saw’ includes being aware of — in the sense I’ve described.”
[i saw that one coming--the mostly reverend]
The questioning did not relent. “I’m an English literature major,” he insisted at one point. “When we say I saw the Patriots win the World Series, it doesn’t necessarily mean you were there.” (He meant the Super Bowl, of course.)
man, how can the republicans go wrong with THIS guy? i mean, he's an english major! what a brave departure for the grand old party of dubya.
