Mitt has been telling porkies again!

Somewhere in his brave and bold speech in which he defended his religious beliefs by not talking about them Mitt Romney proudly told the world that his father had "march[ed] with Martin Luther King". He has repeated this assertion in interviews as well. There's only one problem, his father didn't march with Dr. King. Even for a politician he seems to have considerable difficulty with facts.

Fortunately for the ex-Governor and occasional Mormon his staff have come up with a gloriously implausible explanation. The ex-Governor was speaking metaphorically.

I, for one, am relieved that this little oops has been cleared up.
