Okay, wait a minute. Did Mitt Romney once actually claim that he – not only his father, but he, Mitt Romney – had “marched with Martin Luther King Jr. through the streets of Detroit”?
Evidently so... in 1978. Turns out he was speaking figuratively. Or something.
Well, on Friday Chris Matthews put his foot up Mitt Romney’s ass (figuratively) on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” Because the Republican presidential candidate seems to have a habit of saying untrue things.
Matthews hashed it all out with Kevin Madden, press secretary for the Romney campaign. It was like two pit bulls going at it.
Actually, it was more like pit bull vs. bunny rabbit. Matthews tore him to pieces. It was great political theater and great television.
I have the audio. Click here to hear it. (You can download it via iTunes until late Monday. Just search the “Podcasts” database for “Hardball.”)
