Does it really count as a lie if a fellow simply can’t tell the difference between fantasy and reality? Yes. Yes, it does. Insanity is no excuse.
Last month, Joe Biden told a lie. I know that’s not at all specific enough, so here’s how CBS News described it:
During a campaign stop in Athens, Ohio, on Saturday, Vice President Joe Biden said the last time he was in the town, playing against the Ohio University football team in 1963, he almost got arrested for walking into a girls’ dormitory.
Ha, ha, ha! Oh, that Joe.
There’s just one problem with this heartwarming tale of youthful mischief, as Jim Hoft writes:
It’s a good story. It’s just not true… at all.
Shawn at Free Republic discovered that Joe Biden did not play football at the University of Delaware in 1961, 1962, 1963, or 1964, according to past yearbooks.
Go look for yourself.
