You can't make this stuff up

But Mitt Romney can!
Romney recalled he was “probably 4 or something like that” the day of the Golden Jubilee, when three-quarters of a million people gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the American automobile.

“My dad had a job being the grandmaster. They painted Woodward Ave. with gold paint,” Romney told a rapt Tea Party audience in the village of Milford Thursday night, reliving a moment of American industrial glory.

The Golden Jubilee described so vividly by Romney was indeed an epic moment in automotive lore. The parade included one of the last public appearances by an elderly Henry Ford.

And it took place June 1, 1946 — fully nine months before Romney was born.
And our Basset-loving somewhat popular blogger from America's Finest City (just a trolley ride from Tijuana) explains how Romney pulled that one off.

Maybe Mitt actually remembers the half century parade that happened during the summer of 1950 down Woodward Avenue. I lived on third street, between Briggs Stadium and Woodward, and I was four that summer. At that age I LOVED parades and kept thinking how big the one would be in 2000 - as it was I hardly cared when Y2K came around on the guitar.

But no matter how hard Mitt tries to be human, he just can't cut it. Also, I wonder how and why his dad kept trying to secure the nomination for Preznit, back in the day. He was INELIGIBLE since he was born in Chihuahua, Mexico to a clan that had left the USA generations before to avoid prosecution for polygamy........go figger! John McCain was also born in another country, Panama (tho that was almost an American colony back then) but that was because his dad was stationed there as a member of the military........and that is different than fleeing the country to avoid prosecution, and such offspring are considered native born Americans.
