Another Embellishment

Yep, it looks like Illinois Representative Mark Kirk, the Republican vying for Obama's old Senate seat this fall, embellished his military record just a tad. "Intelligence Officer of the Year" is hardly the same as getting a group award.

Ignorant, because it leads to the opposition saying stuff like this:
Kathleen Strand, communications director for the Giannoulias campaign, said Friday that Kirk "is lying or embellishing his military record," making him "the worst kind of Washington politician."
Right. Yet the guy who allowed people to think he served in Vietnam while actually serving at home doing Toys for Tots is still ahead in the polls in Connecticut. So what does that say about the voters?

The word "idiots" is the noun. The adjective I would use to describe that noun is not one I would use in this fine family blog.
