    Harriet Tubman Never Said Those Things

    By kyle | August 27, 2008

    According to the New York Times, Harriet Tubman didn’t say all the things attributed to her by Hillary Clinton last night. Hillary apparently got them from fictionalized children’s books. Oops. I’m still watching the recording of tonight’s events. Biden was a complete bore, and even the delegates sensed it. Does a single line of his speech stand out? I do enjoy the use of “The Rising” by Bruce Springsteen as a campaign theme song, but alas for the Democrats, who don’t seem to ever mention Sept. 11, that is exactly what “The Rising” is about.

      “who don’t seem to ever mention Sept. 11”

      This is amazing to me as well.
