the face of privilege...

In another one of those classic, who does 'ish like this with all the access to the modern day information highway? Connecticut Attorney General Blumenthal who is currently running for a seat in the United States, has been caught BLATANTLY lying about his service in Vietnam. And not like, he was saying he was on the front lines but really he was on e of the lucky ones that made it to the rank of an officer and served his time in a remote office. Nope. Homeboy never even stepped FOOT in Vietnam... to tune of at least five deferments over the course five years.


Now this grown ass fool is saying that while "his intention has always been to be completely clear and accurate and straightforward, out of respect to the veterans who served in Vietnam," he might have "misspoken" about his service during various.

Misspoken? Really? So is that what lawyers and politicians are calling lying nowadays? Hmm... duly noted.

The sad part, is I'll bet there were a WHOLE lot of young men who fought and were injured in that war and families that lost loved ones whom probably WISH they could've gotten one, let alone FIVE deferments from the draft. Shaking my head.

*cough, LAME, cough*
