Hyperbole?

Bill Richardson attacking a child

Received this e-mail on the James Madison College listserv:

Spartans for Richardson Meeting

Where: 342 Case Hall
When: Wednesday at 9pm

Come by to learn about the MOST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE EVER, Democratic Governor BILL RICHARDSON!

Really? Most qualified ever?

Bill Richardson: Governor of New Mexico, Ambassador to the United Nations, U.S. Secretary of Energy, U.S. Representative

Al Gore: U.S. Representative, U.S. Senator, Vice President of the United States

George H.W. Bush: U.S. Representative, Ambassador to the United Nations, Ambassador to China, Director of Central Intelligence, Vice President of the United States

Hubert Humphrey: Mayor of Minneapolis, U.S. Senator, Vice President of the United States

Theodore Roosevelt: New York State Representative, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Governor of New York, Colonel in the U.S. Army (posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor), Vice President of the United States, Explorer

In case you didn’t see Richardson make a fool out of himself on Meet the Press earlier this year, you missed this:

MR. RUSSERT: You spent a lot of time in, in Massachusetts. Are you a Red Sox fan?

GOV. RICHARDSON: I’m a Red Sox fan, but I got into trouble in New Hampshire. You know why? Because I said…

MR. RUSSERT: Luis Tiant, the fund-raiser. But, now, governor, this is very serious. In your book on page 18 it says…

GOV. RICHARDSON: No, about Mickey Mantle?

MR. RUSSERT: You said you’re a Yankee fan!

GOV. RICHARDSON: No, no, no. I said—no, no, no.

MR. RUSSERT: I mean, you can, you can…

GOV. RICHARDSON: No, no, no, no.

MR. RUSSERT: …you can have different views on immigration, assault weapons…

GOV. RICHARDSON: I, no no no no. No, what I said…

MR. RUSSERT: But when it comes to Red Sox, Yankees.

GOV. RICHARDSON: What I said, the Associated Press asked me, “If you weren’t running for president, if you weren’t running for president, what would you rather be?” I’ve always been a Red Sox fan, but I said if I weren’t running for president I would like to be number seven, Mickey Mantle, playing center field for the New York Yankees.

MR. RUSSERT: “Because of Mickey Mantle, I became a Yankee fan.”

GOV. RICHARDSON: I, my favorite team has always been the Red Sox.

Bill Richardson is a clown.
