This guy just cracks me up:

"Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has said he watched his father, the late Michigan governor George Romney, in a 1960s civil rights march in Michigan with Martin Luther King Jr.

On Wednesday, Romney's campaign said his recollections of watching his father, an ardent civil rights supporter, march with King were meant to be figurative."

Hey, well no one claimed Gov. Romney's words were inerrant.

This is just so funny. The guy will admit he was "wrong" about abortion back when he supported it, but he has to nuance his childhood memories of his dad marching with MLK.

Maybe it was his support for abortion rights that was figurative?
