if the Hillary one is true I would love a source. As a true resident of NY I need all the things I can get to discredit her in the fight to convince people not to re-elect her. Sadly I failed in the fight to not get her elected the first time [:(]

Sorry, but the Dan Quayle "Latin" quote is also an urban legend--- it started as a joke told by a reporter and has been repeated and embellished so many times that it's become 'fact.' What about the recent quote from the Lib-Dem congresswoman visiting NASA? They showed her the robot vehicle America landed on Mars and she asked if it could go over and see where the astronauts had landed. Wrong world, genius.
