Today is one of those days when I manage to find conservatives amusing.

The Washington Times brings us a scoop: when Kerry claimed to have met with all the members of the security council...he didn't meet with every single one. Indeed, intrepid Times reporters have found some UN ambassadors who have not met with Kerry:
...former ambassadors who said on the record they had never met Mr. Kerry included the representatives of Mexico, Colombia and Bulgaria. The ambassador of a fourth country gave a similar account on the condition that his country not be identified.

After conversations with ambassadors from five members of the Security Council in 2002 and calls to all the missions of the countries then on the panel, The Times was only able to confirm directly that Mr. Kerry had met with representatives of France, Singapore and Cameroon.

In addition, second-hand accounts have Mr. Kerry meeting with representatives of Britain...

...after being told late yesterday of the results of The Times investigation, the Kerry campaign issued a statement that...did not repeat Mr. Kerry's claims of a lengthy meeting with the entire 15-member Security Council, instead saying the candidate "met with a group of representatives of countries sitting on the Security Council."
Stop the presses!

Meanwhile, Fox News brings us the following gem:
Twice on Sunday, the Democrat said he was basking in Boston's 10-9 win in Game 1 the night before.

Problem is, the Red Sox won 11-9...

Kerry spokesman David Wade said the senator got the score wrong because 10-9 was the last update he got from the pilot during his late-night flight to Florida.

Problem is, the score never was 10-9. The Red Sox won on a two-run homer, meaning they went from 9 runs to 11.
What a slimebag.

yeah baseball fanship is so uber important, thats why bush (former baseball team owner) is winning by a lanslide. ugh.

the pilot could have made the mistake of calling it 10-9 if he got an update that the team scored without the clarification that it was a two-run homer, so fuck you, fox!
