Fool Me Once, Won't Get Fooled Again Or Something Like That....

Aw heck, no wonder we keep electing them, they lie better than us.Recently, the SN-L editorial board met with Roy Blunt (pictured above). It was during this meeting that Roy Blunt told the SN-L editorial board that because he was 59 and lived in either Canada or Great Britain and he broke his hip, he couldn't get it replaced.

Blunt told the same thing to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Fortunately, the Post fact checked.

In a similar vein, KY3's David Catanese reports that Billy "Long has a tendency to make some statements that could come back to haunt him. He mocked the plight of the uninsured ("Get out the crying towel") and claimed that 26 million people under 35 probably don't want health insurance anyway. Claiming that President Obama's healthcare plan might have taken his mother's life back in March of 2008 is also quite a strong charge. It's all done in the loving-aw-shucks Long way.." but these statements need to be fact checked also. (Our condolences to Billy Long, his mother passed away last Sunday.)
