"I saw my father march with Martin Luther King." Not.

Well, he actually didn't, you know, see anything:

On Wednesday, Romney's campaign said his recollections of watching his father, an ardent civil rights supporter, march with King were meant to be figurative.

As in when he was figuratively pro-gay and pro-choice, I suppose. He really is an almost fathomless bullshit artist. I guess that's what it takes to keep the GOP somehow together. And the awful truth is: if Clinton is the Democratic nominee, it may be enough. The background on this story can be read here and here.
