Clinton was doing a stump speech in New Mexico yesterday
and told a story about how 34 years ago (that would
be 1970) as a penniless law student he first drove
across NM's Painted Desert in his 1970 Gremlin (a
failed, nasty old AMC car model) with a rag in the
gas filler tube because it didn't even have a gas
cap. He wanted to visit the Indian reservations
to learn about the plight of the people. Noble,
As it turns out, the Gremlin was first
sold in 1970, so if he had a Gremlin, then it would
have to have been brand new - not bad for a penniless
student. The other problem is that the Painted Desert
is in Arizona, not NM.
Those people have
no shame, and totally insult their robotic followers.
The audio clip was played on a lot of talk shows
this morning, along with the blogger information
that within an hour proved Bill to be an opportunistic
liar once again. Evidently the near-death experience
hasn't fazed him.
