Mitt: It depends on what the meaning of "saw" is

Via the Corner. My pal Barnett, who knows Mitt personally, tells me what a great guy he is, how he’s exactly what he appears to be. I’ll take his word for it, but maybe Dean doesn’t know him as well as he thinks. From the Boston Globe, also via the Corner:

Mitt Romney went a step further in a 1978 interview with the Boston Herald. Talking about the Mormon Church and racial discrimination, he said: “My father and I marched with Martin Luther King Jr. through the streets of Detroit.”

Yesterday, Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom acknowledged that was not true. “Mitt Romney did not march with Martin Luther King,” he said in an e-mail statement to the Globe.

Coming soon: Hugh Hewitt explains how the dictionary definition of “march” also encompasses hallucinations of marching.
