Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) says he "was proud to support" the Webb GI Bill that he, in fact, voted against. I like the inclusion of the pride point, since after all we can't really assess his subjective condition. Maybe when he voted against the bill he was secretly ashamed of himself (he should have been) and to him that means he was proud to support it. Something like that. After all, only shrill bloggers call people liars.
