    Williams himself repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.

    Misremembered? Is that even a word?
    From now on, with God and The Porch as my witness, I wasn’t drunk, I misremembered.

    I never had sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I misremembered it.
    Try telling the IRS you “misremembered” anything.

    I guess he wants to be Hillary’s VP. They can swap misremembers about Benghazi and other war stories to each other over lunch.
    I mean..like..you know, I can misunderstand how that happens; after all, I rode with Pershing on the Mexican Punitive Expedition.

    Re: firing Williams – Ed Driscoll at PJMedia quotes Jim Treacher on Twitter:

    Please, please, please, @NBCNews, do not fire Brian Williams. He is the face of your organization. He is your poster boy. Own it.

    Damn right. And never let the pricks forget it.

    The State Department miss leads the libs miss remember but it doesn’t make any difference because it’s either for the children or to protect Americans. The Obama White House blames others for their lies and drives over them with a bus. The only people who lie are evil Republicans who hate children and are greedy war mongers. So there——–and dat’s da truuf .

    “So there I was. Reporting at Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7 1941. I was interviewing a Navy Captain, when we heard airplane engines off in the distance. Suddenly, swarms of Jap planes were flying over the harbor. Ships began exploding as the Zeros dropped their bombs. The Navy Captain and I exchanged a look and a nod. We broke into a sprint and jumped onto his ship. He began yelling orders to his crew while I got behind the .50 cal machine guns and began shooting. I must have downed at least fifteen enemy planes as we steamed out of the harbor. We had just hit open water as a German U-Boat surfaced. A squad of Nazi frogmen carrying swords leaped aboard ship. I didn’t turn my guns on them lest I hit an innocent American sailor, so I jumped on the deck and began punching the Krauts with the boxing skills I had learned at Yale. I grabbed a sword from a downed German and swung on a rope slashing and stabbing Nazi’s until they retreated back on to the U-Boat and submerged like the cowards they were. “Master Race!” I laughed as they slipped below the surface. The Navy Captain patted me on the shoulder and we went below deck for a drink. Sitting in the galley was a wild-haired man who introduced himself as Albert Einstein. He was working on a math problem. I took a look at it and simplified it to E=mc2. He hugged me and wept with joy. Then I took a napkin and sketched out an idea I had for a nuclear fission bomb. Soon after that I was put in charge of the Manhattan Project, but that’s a story for another day.

    I’m Brian Williams reporting.

    Well Mumblix, you’ve certainly prevented me from writing something terrible about Brian Williams. Up to this point, I thought he was just another lying sack of shit.

    Hey! That’s the future senator from Connecticut you’re talking about. Remember Dick Blumenthal serving in Vietnam?

    Fawkes 9: I guess he wants to be Hillary’s VP.

    Well, I think, given his skill set, he’s really vamping for the job of “Scamper-Through-The-Sniper-Fire” Clinton’s White House Press Secretary, in the unhappy event that she’s elected in 2016. (God Forbid.)

    I read all 362 fucking comments on his apology page last night.
    ALL 362 comments were fucking identical. “Fire the lying cocksucker!!!!!” When have you seen 100% comments being IDENTICAL?? Either he is fired or MSNBC is TOAST :))))

    OMG! kiss of career death liar:

    Brian Williams is “an honest, decent man, an excellent reporter and anchor–and a brave one,” veteran newsman Dan Rather told POLITICO on Thursday.
