short memories

This morning on Imus a guy from Fox News (his name escapes me) said he thought Blumenthal's (the current AG of Conn. but not former Vietnam vet) campaign for Senate might get derailed for about a week or two due to his failure to accurately state the extent and location of his military experience. This is not a quote but rather my paraphrase of what he might have said yesterday.

Derailed for a week or two?! Oh my! Let's see ... as the AG of a state his job is to enforce/uphold the laws of Conn. Guess there must be nothing in them about telling the truth. And now he hopes to go to the Senate. Guess he'll be in pretty good company there!

I keep getting reminded of these words from the Eagles:

"Well, ain't it a shame
That our short little memories
Never seem to learn
The message of history
We keep makin' the same mistakes
Over and over and over and over again
And then we wonder why
We're in the shape we're in."

"Frail Grasp On The Big Picture" (verse 1)
